Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale

Good idea Nick I’ve seen the LMA boys do it with piano wire.

but can’t say ive ever had any issues.

My next one I will be looking to make it as light as I can.

I really would like to get one under 7kg

That will be a challenge for me as I don’t build light

If mine came out at just over 8 kg, ( and always build heavy...I don’t know how), then I’m sure you’ll make 7kg or under.

Thread: How do you attached to those solid inners on snakes?
22/11/2019 06:52:11

Depending on how long the run is at the clevis end, I put an m2 push rod down the snake and secure with CA . Only for small planes though.

Jon, you need to make a Laser multi tool, spark plug spanner and prop nut driver.


And a pull out tappet feeler gauge from the handle

Well, I think the whole thread is now going around in circles and getting nowhere. We all know the rules and what’s involved.

Like it or lump it........I’m off this thread , goodbye

Gonzo, was your friend a member of the BMFA before all this DRES issue blew up?

If he was then, well, perhaps his reason for giving up goes deeper. As a member you have to follow ANO regs and CAA best practices. All of which still need to be done and for now the Princely sum of an extra £9.

Rowe UFO had retracts as well! I was a little confused how the pilot would do the lower hatch up. Presumably he put is feet on the wing braces ( or rudder pedals for that matter )

Will report back when done

You’ve all convinced me. JB Weld on order yes

Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread
18/11/2019 06:43:00

The CAA are the ones over thinking it by mentioning special tools in the first place

18/11/2019 06:22:50

If the CAA could define what a special tool is or isn’t , that might clear up some confusion

Solder would be my preferred option, but failing that I would use Milliput epoxy putty. It sets under water which can be an advantage sometimes.


Edited By Malcolm Fisher on 17/11/2019 20:23:22

Thanks, will look that up yes

Lads, for this job, superglue, or even Boss White, will do until Cymas shuffles off this mortal coil. What's easy, in stock?

Mrs C will judge

a. neat

b. does not fall apart.

Cheers Don but I’m not that old ! There’s plenty of years left in the old dog yet ! dog laugh

Thread: Glenns models cap 232

The throttle is better than it was. More even across the stick range.

Went for a noise test at my club near St.Austell. There is a strict limit of 84dB @ 7m. It failed badly....86.5dB. Still, I also belong to Davidstow MFC ( on the old WW11 Airfield) which has no strict limit. The Cap will fly at Davidstow.

Mrs C and I have talked about WW next year. I looks like we will be going to Greenacres that weekend. There is a HUGE grass strip up there, and more room for cross winds. I did mention in a previous post that we could be missing the show....Sorry but there you areface 11.

We've booked for Woodsprings in 2020.

PS most flying clubs just use a windsock.....

If it were Wyoming, they would use a length of chain on a stick

Anyway.....this is for Mrs C. heart

17/11/2019 18:28:27

I would use solder but for two reasons

  1. the joins are quite wide, 2-3mm in some places
  2. I don’t own a big enough gas torch to get enough heat into the workpiece

17/11/2019 17:50:24

Thanks C8, can you gently heat it to make it more workable, as you can with epoxy?

17/11/2019 17:36:25

I could make a wooden bung to stop the epoxy running off down the copper pipe.

I thought that JBW might stay where you put it. Is it as runny as Zap Epoxy?
