|Thread: Can you identify this model aeroplane?|
Without a picture, the only model I can remember from the 80s designed as a camera platform around that wingspan, was something called a Hercules (I think)... Can't remember which manufacturer.
|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
Click on the arrow at the end of the pictures, it's a bit further on....
Nice cat BTW.
|Thread: LMC Gnatty|
I had the straight wing Gnatty. It flew very well if I remember correctly, until in-experienced dumb-thumbs wrote it off!
|Thread: Parkzone ARTISAN|
Or even just a piece of decent 3mm ply (not lite ply, although this would probably do the job just as well).
|Thread: Glue throwing peg|
Yeah, like David says, just glue it in....
They probably suggest using thick super glue as it goes off quickly and will fill any gaps around the peg, but (assuming that the model is wood and not foam), normal "white" glue or epoxy will do the job.

|Thread: Rx !!!!!!!!!!!|
You can get forward and reverse speed controllers.... is this what you mean?
|Thread: How to post a Wanted Ad|
Go into Classifieds menu in the ribbon at the top of the page.
Top left of Classifieds page, click on "wanted", Top right of that page now gives you the option to "place a wanted ad".
|Thread: Landing lights on H9 Carbon Cub|
Thank you Denis.
Thank you John, the links are very useful.

Nice one, Paul, thank you.
I'll have a look at that idea.
Does anyone have any experience with the connecting up of the landing lights on the Hangar 9 Carbon Cub 15cc, please?
The kit supplies a battery box for 2 x AA size dry cells, so the lights obviously work off 3 volts, but I would like to connect them through the Rx. I will be using a 6 volt supply.
Do the lights have a resistor already attached, and if not, then what size resistor do I need, please?

|Thread: Ripmax WOT 4 XL Gider Tow Release|
Depending on the weight of the glider you are towing, David, you need to be sure that the release servo is man enough to actually release in an emergency situation. A 12lb 1/4 scale glider doing a little dance on the end of the line puts some force on the towing pin, so you need a servo with a decent torque to be able to release it and save the tug and hopefully the glider as well.
I think they are designed to be mounted on the former at the rear of the wing bay, not actually in the wing.
We do a fair amount of aerotowing, and all my tow releases are mounted on or just behind the rear wing bay former.
Yes, I'm sure they were... It was a while ago, but I don't remember any issues.
I used Timber wheels on mine Slow Poke.
|Thread: Control Line Cables|
I used to fly a lot of control line in my teens in the '70s..... Would probably fall over now
|Thread: Lockdown flight achieved|
Which model is this? Any pics?
|Thread: Has anyone converted a robbe "Do It" to electric?|
Hello Thomas, and welcome.
I have no experience of this model, nor indeed any fun-fly type model, it's not "my thing", but you should be looking at a power set-up that will give you around 150 - 200 watts per pound to give you the performance of a "fun-fly".
Just google fun-fly models or look for them on YouTube... There are plenty out there and they are all very similar, so you may find some help and ideas there.
Hope this helps.
|Thread: Flying in the Back Garden Microaces Fun|
Just seen it... Can't wait to see the "noisy one" now...
Brilliant as always.
