Thread: Glow Sticks
11/06/2019 08:47:39

When glow sticks first arrived on the scene the ones for use with aero engines were short in length but then the longer ones arrived for use on ic car engines that had the much taller cylinder heads for extra cooling I used them myself when racing 1/8 ic off road cars. The manufacturers now only seem to supply the longer ones which are inclined to jump off the plug when the engine starts and can jump, lead or battery and all, into the propeller not a pleasant experience.

I would suspect poor secondary compression as already mentioned by engine doctor you say it hit terra firma hard enough to yank the plug it may have damaged a bearing seal thus losing secondary crankcase compression !!

One advantage of living in Wales us oldies get screened at our GP's for AAA although I had to go to the hospital for a second screening as they couldn't get a clear view of my aorta because of scar tissue from a previous heart surgery at the GP's

If you plan on having the "finger" test/examination have it after the PSA test as it can lead to raised PSA levels !

Thread: Fresh petrol in a lawnmower every season?
04/02/2019 12:27:53

I would advise not draining the tank completely but run or drain it to a low level for the winter and then refuel for the spring when the new fuel will mix with what's left of the old the old. I'm a lucky son of a gun as I use my mower (ride on) as tractor pulling a trailer for our logs in the winter, and I also use the petrol mix for my models in my chainsaws for the winter. It's mainly a case of unleaded petrol slowly losing it's ability to vaporise over long periods

I have no trouble at all, having perfect eyesight. I do bomb drops and can get they in the middle of the strip.

Also, practice makes perfect. One chap at our club flew his Extrawot into a tree last year, I did remind him that he was behind the tree and going to fly into it - and he did!

The only problem you have is your modesty (or Lack thereof)

Thread: Which walbro carb for DLE30
27/11/2018 09:05:00

Beat me to it E. Doctor

27/11/2018 09:03:58

David what makes you jump to the conclusion that it's a carb issue? If it was running ok as you said before it's unlikely to be a carb as P.P. has said carbs are very reliable and if faulty are usually so from the get go.Have you checked for spark? If you store your models dry the two flap valves on the pump diaphragm are inclined to curl up and eventually render the pump inoperative. Broken or leaky reed valves are another possibility as are crankcase and or bearing leaks as two stroke motors are very dependant on secondary compression within the crankcase.

Thread: Decided on 60cc aircraft expressly designed for electric flight
14/11/2018 19:42:35

I don't know if it will apply with an electric installation but on the larger petrol models the carbon spinner backplates have been known to soften with heat causing prop bolts to loosen with drastic consequences. I got one for my 2.6 metre Edge but luckily had a spare aluminium backplate which luckily mated with the spinner body. This may not apply to your electric set up as I have no idea how much heat they generate, it's all looking great by the way your build logs always make for a good read

Thread: Fixed or steerable tail wheel
11/11/2018 16:02:44

Has to be steerable if you want decent ground handling, in any sort of crosswind with a castoring tailwheel your model will simply weathercock into the wind

06/11/2018 17:20:08

The tailwheel's the same as Goldwing supply I just used a longer ball link epoxy'd into the rudder and just left the rod straight on my Slick 540, ground handling is excellent

Tygon fuel tubing in a petrol tank only tends to harden if you drain your tank/s between sessions personally I always leave petrol in my tanks, even If was going to lay up my models for the winter I would still leave petrol in and drain and re-fill come the spring, not an issue for me as I fly all year round. If you must drain for whatever reason viton tubing for your clunk/s is the way to go

Thread: Selecting Servos for a New Model
04/11/2018 15:43:25

Karbonite geared servos are not recommended for petrol models at all, karbonite will shatter under vibration

Thread: they are still at it.(PayPal).

If you get dodgy emails purporting to be from Paypal forward them to they have their own investigation department specifically to deal with scammers
