Thread: Lidl multitool/ dremel clone

Dremel tools can be repaired. The locking pin went on mine years ago, easily mended.

Marty how’s the Roto holding up? I’m thinking of getting one for a future build.

We all make a profit. Take for example your house and imagine it’s a business.

You have income, ( wages or pension etc). You have expenditure, mortgage, utilities, insurances.

Now, if you make a profit, you will be able to save to buy planes or go on holiday. If you make a loss you must go to the bank for a loan. This in turn is another expenditure. So, you either make cuts and economies to turn your business back into profit or you do nothing. If you do nothing, your business is soon in the red and is closed....your house is repossessed by the bank.

Simplistic, maybe, but the analogy works for me.

Mr Micawber's famous, and oft-quoted, recipe for happiness: "Annual incometwenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen [pounds] nineteen [shillings] and six [pence], result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery."

Thread: CAD operator needed please
24/04/2020 18:22:03

Barrie, funny you mentioned the tail size. Today, I was experimenting with increasing rudder and elevators size, as well as increasing wing span ......not by a lot to notice. I haven’t yet done the maths about % increase. There are certain ratios between tail and wing area.

I will keep you all updated soon.yes

Thanks for all your interest. I’m thinking of blowing up the 3 view plans to the scale I need. This should give me real size wing ribs and fuselage formers.

Do the readers agree with this strategy?

All the model companies I’ve contacted can’t help with cad.

Morning Carl

Having a look at Bangood, it seems your plane is over 250g. If you fly it outside please be aware that it will be subject to the new regulations introduced by the CAA, Civil Aviation Authority.

Anything that flies is subject to essential ANOs , Air Navigation Orders.

Enjoy your new hobby, hope the lad has fun with it laugh

Give Richard of Falcon Aviation a ring. He has models designed and built for the LMA, the large Vulcan being one.

I had my General Western P-2-S Kit off Richard. Top guy, but it appears his website has disappeared

23/04/2020 21:46:20

I’ve messaged him...still waiting! I’m going to do it again. See if I can get his plans.

My experience is more in modern composite type designs but I do modelling CAD everyday and your project whilst interesting is a lot of work.

I wish you the best of luck.

How about upskilling for your retirement and learn CAD in some form or another.

Barrie, you seem to be a man who knows, by experience?

23/04/2020 15:41:45

The looks only a mother could love !

Designed by one of the aviation greats

23/04/2020 14:33:14

Thanks. I will read up on that. There is a thread on RCUniverse also. I need to read that one as well. Perhaps I can buy a plan from the States and get it enlarged.

I’ve contacted DB Sport And Scale, Cambrian, Tony Nijhuis, all said sorry, no.

Just waiting for Slec to answer back. I don’t hold out much hopefrown

Please,gents, can we get back to the issue of SV4-C’s.

Maybe a minimal contrast pattern so you know which way is up. But, I’ve got to agree, natural wood finish would be great and unique

Understand where you’re coming from Pegasus. My daughter can’t finish her Masters at Uni so has decided to now volunteer at the local hospital and walked straight into the fire.....bless her

By that definition its cancelled. You placed an order for a show in 2020, and there isnt one!

Anyway, this year is pretty much a bust. Perhaps we can get out in august? Really annoying as the weather so far in april has been lovely with the easter weekend and this coming weekend looking especially good for flying.

Oh well. I suppose i will have to come up with something else to do on those nice days.

Well, I chose the wrong word cheeky. I hope to be off to Much Marcle at the LMA show at beginning of September.

Some history ***here***

Dear All

I have a request for any forum member who is a wiz with CAD.

I’ve been thinking and planning for a year or so about a project I’d like to do in retirement, still a few years off. I

I have several sheets of plans for a Wittman D-12 Bonzo. It was originally built in 1934 by Steve Wittman and was a successful pylon racer. There are a couple of variants between 1937-38.

The most accurate plans I have are from the total refurbishment and rebuild from 1984. These show a very detailed drawing of all the main components, wing profile and scale.

The wing span was 17’2” , fuselage 22’ 2”on the renovation ( original dimensions ). A 1/2 scale model would be ideal.

Would anyone be willing to draw up a set of building plans, calculate the projected weight and suggest an engine size?

I would pay for the time involved. All the plans I have I would gladly copy and they would be yours to keep. Here are some pictures I’ve dug off the internet and a photo of the most detailed plans I have.

Probably not exactly what you want but an excellent video on throttle set up. I admit I know nothing on Taranis.
