thanks peter, but mechanics are not my thing thats why i havnt taken the complete 1 apart to look. Once took a cox 049 apart and it never ran again. Im a bit old fashioned me. I build from plans and like to see in b+w what goes where. the bags I have (3) are full of bits and bobs with loads of balls and seals along with the main bits. i`ll just keep looking on line but so far no exploded views

Hi wasnt sure where to post this but i have a kit(packaged parts) of the above which i want to construct.I have spent hours on the net looking for exploded views no luck.prices,photos and vids are plenty. has any1 got a diagram of this lovely motor that they can email to me please? I have a complete engine but do not wish to take that apart for fear of not putting it back together again. your help would be appreciated

many thanks keith

thanks martin but not put off. so how is it hoppity was basically the same design but control line?the rotor was spun initialy by hand and then a take off from the ground and hopefully a landing with the 049 still running.(or a crash occured apparently)surely it would work on the same principal? was a plan included i cant remember? still havnt found one in the masses of rcme plan archives in the w/shop

thanks jd,all those ribs probably why i left it for so long. They were launched and landed back on airships, uss macon being one, the planes markings were each different for each airship. The history of them is fascinating, i keep googling it and find something different everytime i look. I am really glad mike put this plan of his out on his website. I only did it as a challenge. will it fly? i dont know, need to finish it first and get some fotos.

Thread: Bomb Dropping from my Super 60
26/03/2018 18:30:45

back in the 60`s when i was just a little "fetchermite" (remember them?) my uncle strapped my pride and joy,red devil action man to his twice size super 60. released by a DT fuse down he floated. I searched forever but couldnt find him. I walked those fields for weeks untill i spotted his ripped up chute. On the way back home not far from action man landing spot I found an 18" blue solid balsa wing. Looking up The rest of a yellow biplane fuzzy and blue lower wing hanging from a tree. I retrieved that and took both to uncle toms house. It was his free flighter with a small diesel attached. Action man found it on his search and rescue mission in the fields and jungles of tonyrefail. That plane was lost 6 months earlier and given up as lost. Well done action man on a successful search and rescue mission.where can i get another action man red devil circa 1965 ish? what fun us fetchermites had.

whats the difference between controlled bomb drops, free flight anything(no d/t or radio assist, just a plain free flight) and more importantly a fireworks display? take a walk a few miles out from where the display took place and i am sure you will find some rocket debris.My answer is to drop bombs (if you must) from a safe reasonable low the looks of that video there was noway you could know where that bomb was going to fall.following the bomb on video was like watching a tee off on the tv.I have never once followed that ball from the time it was hit til the time it landed. Flying sites are treasured items,to be used sensibly to ensure long time use. it only takes 1 false move

This was started in 2014 I think.for some reason it was shelved but last week resurected.I must get in touch with mike for some fotos of his for the rigging wires. Looked on line but cant seem to find any decent ones.Total weight with rubber is 57gm but it could be less. those wheels came from airfix lanc bomber. i have some l/w foam ones from gws but the wheel spats inners will have to be enlarged very slightly. I dont think I am even going to bother flying it, dont want to damage it now. The balance (finger tip method under c/g top wing) is about right.All good things are worth waiting for I say. This was 1 hell of a build, all fotos available in my albums if interested

Hi shep, great stuff thanks. Its not for me its for my ageing uncle tom. famous from "payne aviation company" tonyrefail. Would you please ring him on 01443 670462 (swales) he can arrange it with you. His 1914 set from the trenches has died along with his wright brothers fliers. he cant get along with computer screens and just prefers sticks and basic dials (altitude airspeed vel and horizon) along with an agitated attitude
