Thread: Ballast my Weasel !!
02/01/2012 18:31:44
Structurally I've had not problem with more lead than fits in the hole.
02/01/2012 16:53:01
that is a permanent solution though not ballast
As above add a steel joiner (if built 3 piece) or fill the chucking hole with lead (it's on the CG pretty much).

you can put bits of lead in the finger hole.

Great flying model.
I think the quality of them is really batch/date dependent.
Mine is nicely finished, but as Peter says there are weak areas.
on mine the nose cone has started to go "soft".
Not sure it is a model that could last you 10-15 years like a tragi or muller, but a very nice design.
Thread: Clubs and slope soaring sites in Powys Wales

The Long Mynd is a good site. The Westerly slope is pretty big with lots of heather - you can fly most models there.
£3 - bargain - it's a well run club.
Thread: New glider coming from westwings....

what does sports "scale" mean? the dreaded "S" word.....
A bigger version of their Orion would be a nice floater. Not sure I would want a great bitg unnecessary fuse though.
Thread: After 2.5 Easy Gliders, what next ??
05/10/2011 14:54:02
there is an electric fuselage for Lunas you know.
ask t9hobbysport.
Although a mouldie is obviously more expensive than a foamie, it might be cheaper to get a luna-e fuse, if you haven't already ordered something else.

Learn how to land!
a bit hard, but ultimately the most relevant post perhaps!
03/10/2011 20:47:59
go for something less floaty.
Thread: Oooooo want one

Small scale gliders? light air.....? cheap chinese ones at that........
Thread: Weasel covering
28/09/2011 12:54:06
some people will say cover it with X and some people will say don't cover them because it adds weight or whatever.
I think the situation is that it depend son the age of your kit. With mine there was an additional piece of paper in the box that said that the weasel was now made of lighter EPP foam and that covering it was a good idea.
Presumably people who didn't have this piece of paper in their kit have heavier version. To be honest I cannot remember what the kit instructions actually recommend.
It's possible to cover it with either normal Zagi/packing tape or with something like profilm.
The model can fly in a wide range of conditions as mentioned above. Well I say fly, I really mean do lots of rolls then bore you to tears, but each to his own I guess!
Pass the new belly pan someone........
Thread: recommend an easily progammable transmitter
28/09/2011 11:44:20
the cockpit sx is pretty simple, but you are buying in to an expensive 2.4ghz system.
Thread: Chuck em high
26/09/2011 16:49:16

It was at Upton on Severn. Earlier in the year - I forget the date.
It's not my vid I hasten to add - I was just at the comp.
26/09/2011 14:19:40
here's a youtube of a recent f3b comp I was in - fair few launches to look at.
26/09/2011 13:52:18
what kind of winch is it?
It really depends on how powerful it is and how long the line is.
Wildthings are not know for their winching potential - true!
A big mouldie with a tow hook is nice if the winch has decent grunt.
I live a long way from you unfortunately, but maybe there is someone in your area.
26/09/2011 11:53:54
Whereabouts do you live/fly?
I am happy to show you how to do a winch launch. I am always up for practice anyway.
What model(s) have you got?
26/09/2011 10:44:53
gliders - ones with tow hooks. If it's a powerful (f3b) type winch then something that isn't going to blow up.
camber the wing to launch.
26/09/2011 10:40:41
what do you mean by towline winch?
You need a turnaround pulley for a start.
