|Thread: Congratulations Mr Miller|
Like many on here we are also Peter Miller fans and have started to put together electric power train setups for Peter Miller Designs (with Peter's help and approval), Some are old and some haven't been released yet - Something to wet your appetites.
If you want an electric setup for a design that is not on the list, please get in contact (via our website is best) and we'll be glad to put together a complete system for you.

Not quite sure what happened to the picture LOL
Hi BEB,You may want to re-visit your horizontal stabiliser - Sorry! Tony made a small error in his drawings and drew the elevators wrong. have a look at Trevor Crooks photos, his are correct, you'll see what I mean. Tony blew up this drawing for me and now myself and Colin Low are building 2 off 100" versions, both for electric power. We hope to get them built for around 25lbs and have around 3500W on 12S. So far we have built the tail feathers and have made a plug and cowls, next job is the fuselarge. The plug and cowls must have taken us over 80 hours of work so far. You are doing a very nice job here, keep up the good work.

|Thread: Middle Wallop Electric Fly-In, July 2013|
The Jungmeister and DH-89A Dragon Rapide are both owned by Ian Gear of the Isle of Wight and are powered by Purple Power motors from 4-Max. The Lancaster is owned by Colin Low (Purple Powered), The DC3 belongs to Roy Thompson, the Tigercat is mine (Purple Powered) and the 10S version of the H9 Taylorcraft and the Siamese Funjet belongs to Chris Bradbury. The 6S version of the Tailorcraft belongs to Bob Mahony. Roy, Colin, Chris and myself are all members of the Basingstoke Model Aero Club who are holding their annual Electric Fly-in on the 15th of September. It's generally well attended and we have a great field, so come along and have a fly.
|Thread: Dogfighter - new Multiplex release|
Just read their blurb and they say there are 2 decal sheets supplied with the model

Yes the white Twister is due out later this year, Web price is expected to be around £80 for the airframe only
The latest info from Multiplex is that the Dogfighter is due in June/July 2011 and Web price should be around £80 for the basic airframe and £160 for the RR Version. They are only listing one type so I presume both sets of stickers are included. Until I actually receive my stock I can't confirm this.
Personall I think it will be very popular. I also think it looks like a late mark Spitfire or even a Supermarine Spiteful (see below pic)

|Thread: transmitter flight timer|
I assume you are flying with LiPo batteries. If so then to make your LiPo's last, I suggest you aim for taking out a maximum of 80% of the batteries capacity, less is better.
IE with a 2,200mAh battery you want to aim to put back 1760mAh or less.
2200 x 0.8 = 1760

PS it wasn't a Mosquito it was John Ranson with his DH103 Hornet.
PPS Hi David, I'll see if I can find out the name of the Sea Fury fan, I had a long chat with him, but didn't catch his name.

SebArt Sukhoi 29 50E
I have seen 2 of these models crash and be a total write off. Both were being flown by very experienced and very skilled pilots. Only with the second crash was the problem discovered. The first crash happened when the plane was in low knife edge and the canopy came off. There was no response from the plane and it cart wheeled across the patch, totally destroying the plane.
The second crash was similar, this time the plane was doing a knife edge loop and at about 3/4 of the way round, the canopy came off and again the plane did not respond.
The first and obvious fault was the canopy comes off way too easily. This is an aerobatic/3D aircraft which should be capable of standard knife edge and knife edge loops.
The second fault is far more serious. When the canopy comes off it turns the radio off!!!!!!
Both of these models were built as per the instructions and the instructions tell you to install the ON/OFF switch at the front just under the canopy hatch. So when the canopy hatch comes off in flight, it turns the radio off, resulting in total loss of control and in both of these instances total loss of the airframe, motor, ESC and 6S batteries.
If you have one of these and have built it as per the instructions, then I highly recommend that you modify it immediately to put a physical catch so it's impossible for the canopy hatch to come off in flight. Magnets are not good enough for a model of this size.
Cheers n beers
