I arrived at 1745 hrs and drove straight onto the campsite, set up complete by 1830 hrs...a hot and sweaty weekend but the facilities were excellent....

bring and buy was epic...spent loads, got BARGAINS!

Thread: covering in words, not pictures.

Get a travel iron, I’ve used one for covering for years.....

covering...cut a slightly oversize piece, tack the opposite ends of the part your covering I.e. wing root and wing tip

make sure it’s laying straight with no wrinkles...then carefully go around the edges, tacking it I;place, teasing out any wrinkles before tacking it in p,ace with the iron.

when you’re happy that all the edges are stuck down and there are no wrinkles, go over all the edges with the iron (gently) to ensure they are adhered to the airframe, roll over the edges where they go from lower to upper surface (cover bottom first)

then place a thin cotton sock over the iron and gently go from one end to the other, shrinking the film.

finally, using a hairdryer, apply a gentle heat to the panel.

but in any event there will be instructions on the roll of film

The server of the host has been hacked and we’re in the process of getting a new website hopefully including a web shop.

The workshop is open still open and we’re taking order by phone and e-mail in the interim period....

There’s usually someone on the workshop between 0800 and 1800 Mon to Fri to take any calls

Please report how your model flies.

There was one (possibly still exists) in our club, with an electric motor, and Lipo. The owner could not get it to fly, seemingly unresponsive to rudder and elevator.

It will be very interesting how you get yours or have got your model to fly.

As yet unflown, but it is free flight for the Bowden comp...just a building exercise before I start on my Junior 60

I try and stock up with balsa when I'm passing a model shop....I think that suitable available materials will only be available online soon

13/04/2017 09:47:02

You may be right but personally For me the hobby is creating/building and the flying part is just one of the rewards
