Bert, I used Richard Hughes at Falcon Aviation.

HERE is the old website....I don’t know if he is still going. I hope he is, he was very helpful and always willing to get the job done

Have you money in the budget for a good silencer. Any small 2 stroke can be very loud.

Tuning a petrol engine is very different to a glow. Once the engine has done something running, throw out the unbranded plug that arrived with the engine and put a ngk in.

A small puzzle, if the driver has split, that would show as a line, revealed under a glass, or a ridge under a finger nail.

Hopefully the puzzle will be be solved when I get the.darn thing off. There is nothing visible or tangible on the front face or around the outside. The only marks are those caused by cautious use of a pair of grips after the initial pull attempts! So if there is any such failure it will perhaps be near the centre of the rear face. Alternatively, the problem could lie elsewhere.

At the risk of taking the quote out of context, could you have put undue pressure on the thrust washer and distorted it out of round? I think I’m clutching at straws....but hey, just thinking way off line.

Have you considered cutting it off. Drastic I know.

And, finally, the CG is incorrect on the plansurprise

I balanced mine at the marks on the plans and its spot on :\

Bert, its the cabanes that are the issue as the top spar ends just outboard of them so the cabanes do not take any of the lifting loads. Its all transmitted to the lower wing through the interplane struts. I will probably extend the spar on the next one and use some sort of steel plate for strut attachment.

I balanced mine and it was wayyyy tail heavy. It’s in the blog somewhere.

If it helps , I have the Ripmax Flying Legends DH 60 1/4 scale. This has the folding wing arrangement. I will post you some pictures early next week of you need me to. The flying wires are essential.

Hi Alan

Ok, Hmmm at what point are you breaking the law, for instance if you take a model upto the field but do not fly the model just to show the club but it is equipped to fly are you breaking the regulations, when the model becomes airbourne you need to register to be legal. Or is the case you have built a RTF uas so need to register. Just trying to figure out at what point you are breaking the rules. For instance at the club field if everyone is on the ground not flying and the CAA turn up are the rules being broken. I would think that in a court of law no-one has done anything wrong because they are not airbourne is just a collection of models. It might be a stupid question but it went through my mind.


Just remove the wings and explain that your racing “cars”

Does it happen on all models? If so it’s the Tx, I’ll wager
