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 )

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.

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

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?

I’m building a weather vane ( can’t say cock any more.....someone will get offended).

I want to glue two copper tubes , one inside the other. I thought about brazing but as they won’t be subject to any temperature or stress I thought it might be easier with JB Weld.

Good idea or no?

I'm struggling to understand why you would have collected the £9 registration fee from your members before the BMFA AGM and BMFA subscriptions for 2020 have been set?

Has anyone any info yet on what the BMFA fee was set at yesterday. The proposed budget had them set at the same as this year.

Same as last year. There is an option of a plastic credit card sized membership card that comes with various discount and savings options at quite a lot of retailers too. More details on that very soon

I like that idea

It does say on the aircraft. Write the number on the batteries with a sharpie. If you lipo goes up in smoke,so does the number...can’t trace that.

Adrian, have you tried looking through THIS ?

I like the idea of the Powerbox item.

Thank You chaps.. I really like the colours too . Agreed it is always surprising how ‘ rough’ the actual finish is rather than totally smooth “ bar of soap “ finish like mass produced cars. I think it would be nice to build a bit of a photo library on this site of various full size plane details to help building. Before looking at this Chipmunk I had been worried about matching the Solartex painted finish to the colour film I’m using and the panel edge finish . Looking at the full size made me much less worried 😊.

I’m all for thatyes
