Thread: Dragon Lady....I think!

I will get the white Solarlac basecoat down first. I only have a good supply of orange left. So that’s what it will be. I had in mind orange cowl, scalloped orange on the top wing with a plain LE lower. The root of the wing might sweep back into the fuselage sides then taper to the tail. I have to be very careful what scheme I choose as, of course, Solarlac is now hard to find stocked.

Most of Sunday to do this..Why does it take so long! This weekend looks stunning weather so if I crack on this week it might have its maiden flight then. If that goes well ( I land it in one piece) , I will get it ready for paint.


The Solartex needs another iron and the cockpit edges tidying up. Them I will run the heat gun over it.

There is an opening in the market for someone who can produce a good fourstroke petrol engine and a well-known British manufacturer is working towards this end! smiley. Those that have been produced so far seem not to have been satisfactory.


Got to disagree DD. Kolm and Roto make some stunning 4t engines....just make sure the bank manager knows.

THIS page might give you a few ideas. For safety’s sake, always have a separate battery for Rx and Ignition. Always use an opto isolation switch...Rcexl do an excellent item.

Logged on to the new portal - very nice, easy to use.

Unfortunately the portal club finder has lost all the clubs in Yorkshire!

Andy - could you look at what the portal says is within 50 miles of Leeds / Bradford, and compare it with the old club finder - the difference is in double figures...

Or are you expecting Yorkshire to declare independence and form it own YMFA laugh.


Likewise. There is only one club in Cornwall ( slope soaring club near St Agnes), and its neither of mine.

Tried to add a second club at which I fly...I failed badly. How do we do that please.

So we plod on regardless.....

Wings covered ( will need an iron again), ailerons glued in and horns etc fitted. Now do the CG and finding if everything will be ok...


Using **this** to get the CG. It is good and is not ever far from the mark, you can change the static margin to alter the point. 8 sq ft of wing, plane is 13 lbs. WCL is 9.3 so bang on for a sport aerobatic.

 No lead needed, just the Rx battery half way down the fuselage. A new hatch needs to be cut on the underside.

Hi, is there a way of finding out if a membership is still valid. As i can not find my paperwork i am sure i`m still insured as i have not long received my copy of the BMFA News October 2018. But without this paper work can not prove it should i go to fly-in


Email admin@bmfa....I lost my card and insurance certificate. They were most helpful.

A farmer and his sheepdog were working in a field one day.

The sheepdog says to the farmer,” I’ve put your 30 sheep in the pen”.

The farmer replies, “ I only had 27 sheep”.

The dog says,” I know , I just rounded them up” dog party
