Thread: 2016 RCM&E Autumn Special- Free Plan Modellers Choice
11/02/2016 02:29:42

Yep I agree with Daithi, rigging is a pain in the butt down at the flying site, but without all those turnbuckles, wires and odd looking adjustment thingos it rates poorly when showing it off, ( lots of works for minimum flurry of handclaps )

So my wishs would be the Piston Provost,(no retracts yippy ) I actualy looking forward to the plan

Cheers all

I am "over the moon" with supprise and joy that the Whirlwind has made the short list, another time hey Tony???????/ or this year?????, it's been over 5 yrs since that you suggested, that it was one you wanted to build love

Erflog, as for the long moment on the W/wind, , carefully chosen wood and the use of other light materials, the issue is greatly reduced, bearing in mind that you got either 2 x I.C engines up ft or a lipo battery stuck in the fuz, will compensate for that issue a well.thinking

Cheers all

Thread: Bolts to this
17/01/2016 14:59:20

Craig, this the problem that happes a lot, different manufactures have different machine tolerances.

So what is needed is bolts that screw in with out the slop, H\K bolts vary in tolerances, bolt per bolt

Order new ones from the DLE manufactures and all should be good

All the best

Thread: New Laser engines. What do you want?
05/01/2016 12:11:11

Jon my 2 bob's worth ...... I have not had the pleasure of owning Laser, but where as large models require deep pockets which I don't have, get your engines a greater niche of the engine sales, reducing the size and this would bring down he cost.... more motors mean more people involved....petrol powered 10cc and 15cc, should be a grand starting point,

Trimming down the crankcase to reduce weight and achieve a better look, would also help

As I said my 2 bob's worth

yes, somehow Westland must have had a few odd bits laying around.thinking......."perhaps if we put this on there and this George I think we've done"

At 13lbs ...(a shade under 6kg) I would think the 5065 will do the job nicely, From all I have read on the subject, it appeared to be a good flyer, it failed in the speed and manageability trials due mainly because of the upper gun. It simply too heavy for the wing loading, We as modelers wont have that problems. I will try to keep mine down to around 11.0lbs or

Interesting subject
