|Thread: Advice on motors|
Gents I'm seeking your knowledge, looking for a 40/50 ic size electric motor. What are your recommendations. I'm planning a tri motor JU52, the German transport aircraft with the corrugated skin.
Any help appreciated.
Looking for advice,could someone recommend a 120 ic size electric motor equivalent. Recently acquired an Ancona C1 scout and wish to change it to electric....however I'm not sure about how to work out the correct one. Can anyone help
|Thread: Paint bleed issues|
Chaps, need some help with the above. Despite my best efforts in masking the canopy frame of my lysander, after painting, I still find the paint has managed to bleed under the tape. I have tried a little thinners, some white spirit, even isopropyl alcohol and even resorted to trying to scrape the dried paint off with a modelling knife....nothing has worked...any help greatly appreciated.
|Thread: Plaster of Paris canopy mould.|
Chaps, any of you have any experience in making a plaster mould from any existing canopy in order to make a new canopy. Advice needed.
|Thread: JU 52|
|That looks good Karl. I don't understand what you mean by cut-off half the flutes and did you need to fill the ends of the card?|
Thinking of building a ju52 over the winter, however, the big point is how to reproduce the corrugated skin.
So chaps, what's the best way to simulate the corrugation?
|Motors are those recommended by T/N and 4max also the speed controllers too along with the props. |
Batteries are turnigy nanotec 4000 4s.
It's a good set up with a reasonable amount of power.
Thanks for the posting info
|Oops no pictures sorry. How do you post pictures?|
|Thought you chaps might like to see my T/N mossie effort. |
All as per plan, AUW 14.5lbs including 1.5lbs lead. Flew well on it's test flight, 2 years in the making.
|Just a quick question, I am about to hook up my esc's to the rx. |
Do I need to hook up each one separately or can I do them together?
|Alan, have you flown yours, and what's the AUW?|
|Thanks for the quick reply, however can I expand this a little further and ask, are you useing one battery for both motors, or one for each? and are you using different speed controllers?|
|Are you still going to use the zippy 5800s? as I see 4max are selling 3700s?|
|Thread: RCM&E Autumn Special 2015- New 72" Mossi|

|Thread: Hanger 9 30cc Spitfire|
|Could someone please advise me on to post a picture on here as I would like to contribute to this subject |
|Thread: Don't just stand there, get one up!|
Danny don't be to concerned about the depth of the panel lines, they are going to "fill" a little more when your top coat goes on......however they can very easily be "brought back" when a little bit of "wash" or chalk dust...honest, its a walk in the park to highlight them.
|Thread: E-Max Motors|
Chaps...wheres the best place you know of to get spare parts for Emax motors.
I have one of the large E-Max 160's which I have managed to snap the prop adaptor, and need a new one.
I am hoping one of you will know the best place to go to, as I don't have too much time to trawl every web site looking.
Can you help?
|Thread: Grumman Goose Retracts|
Have any of you, or you know of, someone who has built a set of retracts for a Grumman Goose seaplane?
I have in mind to build a model of the Goose and am at the research stage, but I keep running into problems when it comes to the U/C. I have a few pictures of the full size gear, but my engineering skills are some-what limited...so I was kind of wondering if you might know of someone that could help me out?
Any info would be appreciated.
