I think it is a way they can say we are keeping the price the same.... However in reality the price has increased the cost of screws.

Many thanks to all those who supported the indoor event from the many clubs that were in attendance. Each club has a hardcore few who enjoy indoor so joining them all up makes it cost effective , and most of all FUN.

Yes makes sense. The head may be misalignment due to inaccuracies in build ( Who built it????????? LOL) Therefore the bolt ( which needs to be thread locked in place ( I remember)) is the part that is most affected.

Fingers crossed for round two if the rain ever stops. You don't fancy building a boat out of that blue foam????????????? Cheers Tom


Thread: Recomendations on cheap Park flyer?

The picture is of a Crak Pitts by twisted hobbies. It is sold by Robotbirds and flies very very well on a 2204 motor indoors, not sure on how it handles outdoors. Would imagine it would cope in calm conditions.

At last I have found a 2mm threaded rod. I knew i had some some where but where ?? And the shops closed till New year in some cases. But I have tonight found a threaded rod and expoxyed it in to the tube then wound cotton round for strength. Does the horizontal bar between the two servo arms when viewed from the back need to be paraalell to the floor or raised on the right side a little to compensate for torque??

Well I did get to the patch for some well earnt therapy. Wind was not as gentle as would have liked but as you flew in stronger I felt comfortable with conditions. Head whistled on spool up , good sign. Motor had plenty of pull. Head moved in direction . Into wind and up . Then off to the right no recovery possible. Arrrrrggghhh post Mortim revealed that a carbon rod fixing from the steel clevises had fractured and released the left servo clevises . Hence lacking left turn . Dooooh 10 seconds flight. Will repair and band with cotton to strengthen

Tom I hope to get some air time Sunday with the gyro. It has been in the hanger since I saw you due to the weather and my degree needing every minute of the day. Thankfully it has now been submitted and I can get on with the serious stuff.....flying. fingers crossed for a light wind in the morning.!!

Hi Tom , still not tried it yet been busy completing my dissertation . All done now . Remind the student that take off is optional , landing is mandatory an as such is the more difficult of the two. Landing is a crash... It just depends how you control the crash!!!!!!
