Dirk,

I hope you do not mind me pointing out the obvious .

You sir are a master in your class we can learn a lot from watching you're builds.

Impressed by your workmanship

That plane is going to float around the skies for sure.

Better make sure it is a flat clam day for that one Simon.

It certainly is Big.

It looks as though it is going to gobble something up.

Tell me Simon does the body flex under it`s own weight when you lay it on the ground.

Thank`s for the reply Gents.

The kit is complete with only one small part missing which is duplicated on an other sheet.

I do not intend to build from the kit.

Just document the contents measure and make a plan of parts.

The printed parts i should be able to reproduce by measuring the lines and positions.

However the die cut parts can hardly be seen , Only by flexing the wood reveals where the cuts are.

So no photo copying will work there . I may have to remove them in order to reproduce them.

Hi there,

I have decided what to do with the Gyron kit.

Due to the box being opened by it`s previous owner and myself it is not a pristine vintage kit .

And as their are no full size plans for the kit. I have decided to do a Unboxing video of the Gyron.

So all can see what was in the Kit.

What i intend to do is show what is in the box while taking notes of the dimensions of the wood along with their thickness along with all relative information that is printed on them that would be needed to re make the Gyron .

So a plan of sorts will be produced so anyone could build the Gyron again from scratch in new wood.

I was surprised just how heavy the box is and how much wood is in the box.

I built one of them many moons ago.

But i used the wings of a ugly stick ( barn stormer 25 ) as they where the same.

I remember fitting a false tailplane with sticky tape and a length of string so it would go along the ground looking normal until the string pulled the tailplane of so it looked as though my tailplane had come of .

The looks i got as it flew around the skies without its tailplane.

Looking Good so far Rich, thumbs up

Looks like some work has gone into making that radial engine.

It could be my imagination but sadly threads seem to go quiet when i reply to them , ( sorry ). broken heart

That is why i have not bothered to reply to as many threads as i used too.

Well Depron would be the material of choice. as would be quick to fix as i broke the atom and the Auto G of which i think i still have the blades for that too. Cheers, Auto Gyro is still a knack i have yet to learn

Thread: Your experience of Banggood delivery time?
18/12/2019 18:31:26

I will NOT use Banggood every again.!

I did buy small items that i could not get for the usual suppliers, and to be fair they did arrive within 3/4 weeks .

These items where small and cheep and i never spent more than £20 ( Small brushed motors, timers, Led lights ) .

So was not too much to lose. As each order was fulfilled my confidence grew, I ordered some wonder clips for my girl friend . We received a lot of clips that looked like wonder clips, But where a clear copy.

Later i bought a small kit which arrived damaged, later i bought a SJ Cam . What i received was clearly NOT a SJCAM.

I sent them a email with pictures and the best they could offer me was £6 off my next purchase.

The camera is not fit as a kids toy .

So that is why i will no longer use BangGood / GangBad.

Thread: Torque rods vs wing servos
05/12/2019 15:45:35

Hi ,

I could be wrong but i think we saw the introduction of servos in the wing being used in ARTF`s of which most were foam, Balsa ARTF`s came later. My Guess it was easier to manufacture that way.

So most will of come to learn on those models and that way would of been the norm.
