Thread: Poly C - Fuel Proofer?
24/06/2020 05:51:37

This is might be worth some investigation. The Halfords petrol proof lacquer is not very good

I'm dropping out of this thread now on the grounds that it has drifted too far from Mr. Ashby's original topic!


Correct, whatever happened to severed fingers and missing limbsface 3

Thread: How are you buying your modeling stuff in 2020
21/06/2020 22:28:34

Well said TP

I will shop anywhere to get a good deal, good service and value for money.

Went looking for a Vauxhall Zafira.....eventually bought a C4 Grand Picasso. Cheaper, newer, nicer dealer, bigger inside, cheaper to run. Went and did a 160 mile round trip for it......nothing in Deepest Cornwall.

Apologies for getting side tracked.

Thread: DLE 30cc info sought
21/06/2020 14:00:23

Agreed, exhausts are next to rubbish. I was very surprised that the DLE 30 passed, still, a pass is a pass yes

21/06/2020 05:59:55

For reference, I had my DLE 30 sound tested at the club yesterday.

Fitted to a Wot 4XL, 30:1 fuel, Aerostar wooden prop. The only modification done was slip on some high temp automotive silicone tube over the exhaust outlet, to extend the stub length by 3”.

Measurements taken at 7m, WOT, on both sides of the engine. Highest reading recoded...a pass is @ 84dB and under. Model held at waist height and up wind.

Aerostar 20x6... 85, fail

Aerostar 19x8....83, pass

I would also say, that while someone is starting (IC) or preparing (D.C.) a model for flight, keep your trap shut, as there is nothing more distracting than a club mate asking dumb Q's, talking about his bunions, or asking you to look at the latest pile of scrap he's bought from the swap-meet, while you are trying to concentrate on starting your 50 cc engined, 24" propped, beast of a plane.



Agree, you need to concentrate. And can easily get side tracked.....dangerously

My mistake, got mixed up with talk of Ax’s.

I’ve found it’s never the engine that gets the fingers, it’s always the prop.

Whenever Mrs C or another is helping, communication is key. I say “ignition live” or “ clear”...anything to warn and remind myself

Hi chaps, Thanks for all the replies. sounds like I need a 46 at least then! The 65 has been going for many years, and was very well used when it came to me in the first place (along with the airframe) - and it always started and run fine. Now it has developed a noise like a handful of gravel or two rattling around inside after cutting on me a couple of times. I don't have a lot of spare money at the moment so was hoping to utilise what I have to keep her in the air until things improve. I will keep an eye on ebay and see what comes up.

cheers, Simon

Take it to bits and see what might be making the noise. If it’s bearings then the replacement cost is a few pounds. If the engine is dead , you can’t break it any more than it is.

Open it up and have a peek.

If you have any, leave to soak in glow fuel for a day or two. If you can remove all the plastic bits,(can’t remember if the mds has a plastic throttle arm). GENTLE heat to free the oily residue


Or have a look at jkAAOSw1fJeyqir">this

Sadly Sheila Scott`s Comanche was written off when it had to put down in a school playing field just short of the Elstree runway due to engine failure caused by a severe oil leak. My father was the sec at the aero club at the time and i have a number of pics of the stricken aircraft in the field about an hour after it happened. The crew walked away unhurt, i believe the remains are now in a museum in Scotland. Sorry i see i have more or less duplicated what someone else has posted, that will teach me to read the full thread!

John, must ask about the floats. How much difference to the cg do they make? Obviously creating more drag...any flight differences
