Thread: Launch & Speed Trims
17/05/2013 09:04:05

Hi Steve, I'm not familiar with the Hitec Radio, but on a Futaba 12FG you can either set up different trim settings for each flight condition (Flap, Aileron and Elevator) or you can link your ailerons to flaps so that when you adjust the flap camber or reflex using a slider, the ailerons are driven at the same time to achieve an all moving trailing edge.

I use the trim settings for reflex and camber and have the flaps and alilerons both linked so that the whole trailing edge moves with snap flap and ailerons in my flight modes (don't use a slider). The advantage of the flight modes is you can unlink things as well e.g un-link flaps and ailerons in landing mode.

Cheers,

Tom

Thread: When is it "too windy"?
17/04/2013 13:09:46

Well my mate Paul flew in 60mph winds yesterday afternoon but it was struggle to stand up on the slope edge so I waited for the wind to die down to 50mph before launching a 3M mouldy.

Mmm 30 sec air!

You would be better off with a hotliner that has already been designed for electric power, that way you'll be able to get a decent power train in without compromising the AUW when trying to get to the CoG have a word with Sloperacer or T9 for suitable models or a MPX Blizzard if cost is an issue.

Panasonic SD62 bridging camera, takes stills and shoots good video, cheaper than a video camera with a view finder, can't get on with an LCD screen, Sony Vegas 11 editor.

T9 Hobby Sport sell them, if you speak to Rich he'll be able to let you know when he has some coming in.

Thread: What do you fly when little wind?
04/12/2012 13:16:44

Same F3F mouldies I fly in big winds, wonderful thing ballast and a slippery efficient moulded wing that works well in light and strong conditions. Go on, you know you want to!

Thread: Expertise needed on Dynamic Soaring

Try the RCMF forum, they have a Dynamic Soaring Forum, your nearest DS slope would be the Skirrid in South Wales.

Thread: Futaba T14SG chat
31/10/2012 11:00:48

Anybody seen a manual for the 14SG yet? Nothing on the Futaba site yet.

Need to check it can do on the fly snap flap and differential changes without going into the menu, like the 12FG, the 8FG can't do this.

Thread: The Perennial Question - what glider to buy?
18/10/2012 23:41:57

Or you could get a high performance foamy like an M60

18/10/2012 15:51:54

Willows, Freestylers, Needles, Fosa's, Cyrils, Stinger's, Crossover's, Arsons's, Pikey's etc... its a slippery slope with no cure devil

18/10/2012 14:51:32

Have you thought of a sport scalie? Multiplex ASH26 or RCRCM DG600 spring to mind? There not beginners models, but once you've mastered crow somthing to aspire to later, unless your unlucky and get bitten by the F3F addiction
