As Flight 1 and others have said, heat works a treat. That’s the way to go. Also get the metal clean.

The mix I made up before I went to work ( 7am ) using Solarlac thinners has not set. It’s just gone like chewing gum.

Will report on the heat application method in the near future.....well as soon as I’ve had tea and it’s cured, which maybe tomorrow

Heat, never thought of that. I know it's good for thinning epoxy.

Will report back with the results

I’m sticking some K+S profiles to bent undercarriage wire. I have a couple of JB Weld packs handy.

I was wondering how to thin the JB down enough to get it to flow into the profile.

After some reading up, I understand that acetone will do the job. After experimenting I’ve also learned that Solarlac thinner has the same effect.

This morning I’ve mixed up some JB and thinned with Solarlac thinners, placed it on a scrap of aluminium and inserted a short length of piano wire.

After work, I will see what’s happening

I used a good deal of stick on lead weights. All around the inside of the cowl. Mine was tail heavy first flight.

Just Engines part no. 12845. O rings. The needle O rings should fit the fs30ar as well

I’ve had them ages. I can’t remember, though I will search around for you.

I have an SC 30fs. It’s been in a box for about 3 years. When it was put away, it’s run dry and well oiled with after run. Last week I needed it running for a club mate.

Stay with me on this

Put it on the stand, ran it up tuned it and it backfired and got rid of its prop very smartly. There was also pre ignition.

Are you still there....

I managed to acquire new ‘ O ‘ rings for the main needle. Hey presto! It’s a little jewel and behaves itself.

Totally agree. You resist in naming and shaming.

Modelfixings and RCWorld are very good at keeping internet stock levels as correct as they can.

Our Club has used 6 max on the field since lockdown ended. All the members are used to the club system and now it is routine. Members make more of an effort to book and come now that places are reduced at the field.

All our members have an email. It’s been a slow process but all now use email to contact me if they need a flying slot.

There are two sessions on a Wednesday and Saturday that members book in, 6 slots in each session. I than put the names on a special page on the club Website. All can see if the session is full.

All booking emails are kept only by myself and deleted after 21 days. Any cancellations are amended on the page. Once a session is full an email goes out to all members.
