|Thread: Ben Buckle kits.|
Hi, As you say its very confusing, I went ahead and lifted the tip by 1/2 inch but made sure that from forward of the tip to the leading edge was flat to the board. After taking the outer tip from the board i eyeballed it from the TE and it just shows a few degrees of washout, hopefully the second tip will be the same. Thank you for your advice.
Hi, In capital letters it says washout. It says the wings must be washed out1/2 inch at the tip,this means that when the tip panel is placed on a flat surface the trailing edge is raised 1/2 inch at the tip. The inner panels must be flat by the same test. This is what is confusing me.

Hi, I have now received my Playboy and well into the build with no issues at all. On the plan it says to give 1/2inch of washout at the wingtip but does this mean raising the wingtip 1/2inch up at the wingtip at the trailing edge while keeping the leading edge flat while joining to the inner panel using the dihedral braces. Thank you for any help given.
Once again thank you, Just ordered one from Steve webb models, looking forward to starting the build.
Thanks guys that was what i was hoping for. I fly all electric these days so iam going to convert it to electric. Pete, obviously i want to turn off the motor and extend the flight time even more, did read some where that it would thermal in the right conditions would you say that is correct. Thank you.

|Thread: Ripmax Phase 5e|
Not got that far yet but will try 3s first has i have them spare then try 4s.
After having the phase -5 bought for christmas i had a quick check for any damage and then put it on the back burner till i finished another build.How ever having started the Phase-5 build and getting round to connecting ailerons, flaps i have found a twist in the inboard side of the aileron on both wings. Has anybody else experienced this, so disappointed with this model.
Thats nice to know, Was a bit a concerned after reading earlier posts regarding the weakness at the front end.
Hi, After trying to make my mind up if to purchase the Phase 5-e my wife made it up for me and bought one for christmas. Looking forward to building and flying and have taken note regarding beefing up the nose area and trying to strengthen the cowling.
Thank you for your evaluation of the Phase-5. Might still be tempted knowing that you can beef up the front end during assembly. Please keep your comments coming.
I was allso interested in the Phase-e and it looks like it flys well after seeing a recent video but having seen your problems after a bumpy landing really puts me off. I would have thought from a renowned designer the front end would have been a bit stronger to accommodate the motor.
|Thread: Chris williams ASK-11|
Hi, I never expected it to be a all out thermal machine but if it catches the odd thermal and can get longer flight times by just toogling along on low throttle than that will suit me. One more question if i may and that is regarding the stall , has got any nasty surprises such as a tendency to tip stall. Thank you.
Hi, Thank you for your feed back, regarding your video i have watched numerous times looks like it flys well. Could you tell me how well it thermals . Thank you.
Hi, Couple of years ago i was looking to build the ASK-11 glider but never got round to it but now i have more time on my hands so iam asking how difficult is this glider to build regarding wing joiner, any wash out in wings and so on. I class myself as a intermediate builder but don't want to set something on i can not finish. Was hoping to get in touch with Chris via scale soaring but can not post a question so was hoping somebody or chris might respond on this forum. Thank you for any help.
|Thread: Cambrian models funfighters|
Even something like the cambrian models where it needs a good launch. When i can i usually launch myself but if needing a hefty launch i let a clubfeet launch it.
I suppose regarding launching if i can not launch myself i am going to need a helper every time not good if i want to fly alone.
