It’s all getting a bit tense in the living rooms of England face 3

Thread: power panel

I had a couple of panels. The pumps are useless. I now have a Kavan fuel pump, just using the panel switch.

Have several of these

Oh, you’ve bought a model of Peter Cushing !

I epoxied mine and used cocktail sticks to use as dowels. If you can at this stage strengthen the dihedral brace on the wings.

I used longer wing band dowels, makes the job of putting them on easier. Also I used Slec wing bands, can’t recall what length, it was a few years back.

Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale

THIS is by far the cheapest. It’s a shiny plastic covering.

Oracover does a fabric covering but the cost is high.

Are you any good at covering with nylon and dope. If so that might be the cheapest method and then spray paint.

As for amounts it’s a case of knowing the width of the roll and then doing some rough maths after measuring over the plan. I covered the wings and fuselage first and then ailerons, elevators, rudder etc with the off-cuts.

St Austell has the AGM 13 December. I’m sure it will be mentioned at next months meeting. I hope that we vote on going through the bmfa.

My best vacuum cleaner? My wife....oh I'm going to wish I hadn't said thatsecret

Gosh times have moved on...if it’s not flying weather on Sundays, I’m through the house while the better 3/4 is at work. We’re on another Henry. Bought a Dyson Ball, complete rubbish. Glad to see it gone.

Thread: Futaba 10J NiMh Battery Problems
30/10/2019 06:38:58

Sounds like a cell has died. Lipo batteries usually come as 3.7v, 7.4, 11.1

If it were me, I would get a proper eneloop battery. Mine has lasted for years.

You’ve got twin elevator servos, do you have the ailervator mix on the 14 ch Tx. I’ve got one on the FF9cap. Really useful for this purpose.

The CAA published exemptions to ANO articles 94D and 94F earlier today. The ones of interest to BMFA members are 1324 and 1326.

It is worth noting that people making use of these exemptions are supposed to carry copies of them.


Will it be a criminal offence not to carry a copy - even if you are competent / registered and labelled up in accordance with the legislation? Or can you produce your documents at a later date, in a similar way to HORT/1 when asked to show your driving documents.

This is getting really silly now. This is a hobby!

That’s interesting! There’s no need to carry any car documents...could the local Constabulary could go on the CAA portal and check ? The number will be on the airframe- somewhere

I can’t see what there is to fuss over. Anyone with an A or equivalent just pays £9 to have the registration done through the BMFA....easy.

Thread: FrSky Futaba Tx Module
26/10/2019 13:00:37

I looked when I changed my FF9 to 2.4. In the end I thought it best to stick a genuine Futaba 8 ch Fasst module in. I assume the cost of these is a factor.

I think I will have to build a small platform over the spar to put the batteries on, but I will have look today to see if the logistics/alternatives are possible, Rich. One thing I don't want to add is unnecessary weight, but space is tight surprisingly.

I have got the Vanessa Rig design on paper in the workshop Cymaz, but I felt it might take me as long to build it as the plane!wink. The above method whilst not the most accurate has served me well and I haven't maidened an uncontrollable plane ...... yet.

I copied mine off the inter web. The longest job was waiting at the till at Trago Mills paying for the cord!
