Thread: Any suggestions?..
06/08/2018 21:22:31

Thanks for the replies, chaps. Simon, the Hawk looks good and gets good reviews but I really can't find it as airframe only, and I want to find a home for the Lander 68mm fan that was left surrounded by a pile foam when the Panther quit this mortal coil.

Kevin, just shows that one should look at the specs more carefully before jumping to conclusions! For the West Wings Hawker Hunter I saw Wemotec 480 mini fan, cobalt motor and nicads and assumed it used a tiny 30mm fan. I now know the error of my ways and that the Lander fan is the man for the job. The plan is to see what's available at the NATs and either get the Hunter there or mail order one when I get back home. Their Hawk looks good too.

Cheers Piers (!!), now you mention it, I do remember seeing a thread on the forum a week or so back. The Sabre would do nicely and I'm not averse to a bit of building. I thought I might have a mooch around the trade stands at the NATs and if there is nothing there the TN Sabre is the way to go. Still fancy a Hunter so might have a go at an own design when I see how Tony does it.

Morning gents, I had the misfortune to black bag my Lander Panther on Tuesday. Flew through the sun and........Can't find anyone who stocks the airframes so am looking for something suitable for a 68mm fan. Have looked on Aerofred and Outerzone for plans but drawn a blank. Fancy a Hunter, F86, Gnat, Hawk or suchlike. Thought about the West Wings Hunter and scaling it up or even going own design from a three view. I am but an averagely competent pilot so nothing too scary, any thoughts?

Another convert to HK film, just received a 10m roll of white from RCLife (who I believe are the latest incarnation of Giant Cod/Shark). £19.99 plus p&p, ordered evening 19th, received early morning 21st. Can't grumble at that.

I am so tempted by an X10. I am currently using a Spektrum DX8, the original one, and it has been 100% rock solid but I am running out of model memories. I have more models than is even remotely sensible but....... and I am using DSM2 and DSMX rx's. I think I've read somewhere that it is possible to use a Spektrum compatible module with FrSky tx's and, if that is correct, what and where from should i be looking? I am quite happy to use FrSky rx"s in future (though I really like Lemon rx"s) but don't want to change the 20+ that I'm using now. Anyone more tech savvy than I able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance, David.

Has anyone received the July mag yet? The review says on sale 8th June and I usually get mine a couple of days before, but no sign yet.

Just had dinner on the patio with beautiful daughter, gorgeous grandaughter and son-in-law and been treated to a 20 minute display by a Spit T9, Hurricane 1 and 109 Buchon. The Spit and the Messerschmitt are based at Sywell, just down the road so we see them very regularly but the three together against a clear blue sky was something else again.

I can't help it, I've been biting my tongue for about 3 hours now after reading Mr Brotherton's post. You mean Lewis is going to demand that Valt is ordered aside like Merc did with Rosberg? " the schumachers and Sienna's would not need to".....selective amnesia? If you need a German, well Austrian, driver to revere you could do much worse than Nicki Lauda certainly not one who never had a team mate who was allowed to race him. I'm with you on Stirling, Jackie and Nigel but you omitted the best there has ever been, Jimmy Clark.

Rant over, goodnight and enjoy fp3, quali and the race.

David, donning tin hat and ducking below the parapet.

Following Percy’s post, I have a Seat Leon “Sports Tourer” and it is a cracking car, everything said about the Skoda applies but perhaps a bit more involving to drive. Bags of room for models and the rear seats fold really easily. Had mine 3 years now and can’t see me changing any time soon.

Saw the film a couple of weeks ago with the present Mrs H and we thought it excellent. Churchill had his flaws, his treatment of Bomber Command after the war was disgraceful, but the World may well be a lot darker place today had it not been for him.

This sound like a good read and I'm about to order it. While l'm at it I have been meaning for years to read some Antione de Saint-Exupery. If know of "the Little Prince" and wonder if that is the one to look for or if there are others that I should try. I have no idea if he will be easily available or whether specialist book shops are the way to go, but if I know what to Google that will be a start. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Isn't it lovely to see a 100% positive feedback for a company who obviously make a great effort to go the extra mile? I bought some stuff at the Nats and the lady the served me was absolutely delightful. I found the Solite I bought to be such good stuff that I phoned to order more for the next project and the service, price and delivery were everything you could ask for. Big thanks,


27/01/2018 19:54:44

And they give a great service.

P.S. Off topic a bit, but do you think if we shouted loud enough and long enough at Richard (Warbird Replicas) he would come up with a Mosquito to wup ME110 that he had the audacity to produce???

I'm completely with everyone who worships at the shrine of de Havilland . Did they ever create an unattractive aeroplane? Moths, Mosquito, Comet... I have just finished (well, a couple of months back) a Dumas Dragon Rapide, surely the prettiest, most elegant aeroplane ever ( except a Mk1X Spitfire, of course). Bye the bye, inspite of the sharply tapered wings it has impeccable manners near the stall, probably down to the cleverly incorporated washout. I'm sitting next to cymaz (that was a near one, the spell checker tried to turn you into a cymbal) with tea and gingernuts at the ready.
