I take my hat off to you. Way beyond anything I could contemplate doing.

Martin - Sprios is doing some pretty impressive printed builds at the RC Hotel in Corfu - airframes and extras

Dave I only use Macs and have multiple email accounts for business and private use that all work fine including gmail. I suggest you go to settings / accounts then check you have inputted the right details and password. If that doesn’t work delete the account and reinput. Failing that you can find plenty of good Mac help video tutorials on line

Try to trial fit the engine/motor and fuselage servos / linkages before the empennage is fitted so that potential damage from moving he airframe around is minimised...

Thread: Flair ATS Kite MK4
20/02/2020 21:23:44

Paul I bought one second hand as a trainer for helping friends of mine - I still use it.
I converted it from a tail dragger to a tricycle configuration as both are catered for in the original design.

I learned to fly on a Kite at the now defunct ATS school in Wiltshire 26years ago - it is a great model that is both benign and aerobatic.

happy to answer questions re the finished model and share pics -just PM me.

Lots of people hated the Montego, but I had a 1.6 litre one and it was a much loved car. Bought it half list price at 10 months old, kept it for 9 years. It could cruise all day at 90mph if you wanted. But at normal speed would give 32 to 40 mpg. It was comfy, handled really well, a nice drive (but lacked power steering when parking). Pulled my caravan at the time with 26mpg. Loved it. Only trouble I had was failing fuel pump and sticking fuel overrun cut off -both very difficult to diagnose.

Hmm - I had a number of 'Montenogos' as 'company cars' in the mid that operated themselves usually when raining / windscreen wiper motors that failed / a mysterious bit of trim that appeared and disappeared in the footwell! Did I hate it - no, but was it a pain - yes!

Maidened this Ripmax EasyStreet 2 yesterday - 3S power train: what a lovely flyer - only needed a few clicks of right aileron and two of up elevator...then smooth steady aeros and plenty of oomph! I normally fly IC but our patch has been churned up by motorbikes so this is an ideal model to get a flying 'fix' over the winter months

I have only just watched this on IPlayer and I'm very impressed at the positive / sensible tone from the presenter and the fact that she so evidently enjoyed her flying lesson whilst appreciating how challenging it can be.

Well done to all involved

Thread: Best De-humidifier for the workshop?
20/11/2019 13:31:30

No Piers there is no radiator and I only heat it with an electrical space fan heater when I’m working and when it’s cold

I have a workshop that is a 'small' double garage - even though it is insulated well after a refurb four years ago I am having some condensation problems and would like to invest in a small (desktop?) dehumidifier preferably one that has a continuous drain that I can feed into a sink and leave running.

Any suggestions on make / model would be appreciated

That's a great looking Hurricane Trevor - well done! For me it is the quality of the finish rather than the colour scheme that is most important

Yes we watch it - it is fascinating and there is an aerial shot int he opening credits of an open area next to the location that seems to have a pilots box in it although I suspect it is for horse dressage or something like that

Thread: Best Dremel Clone
07/08/2019 00:26:34

I bought a Maplins clone about three years ago to replace an old Dremmel that had died but at higher speeds the vibrations the clone created were quite unpleasant so I reverted back to a new corded Dremmel and then bought a cordless one too!
