Thread: Twin ic throttle mixing
15/05/2019 17:40:14

By the way chaps, what are we using for all the connections between wing and fus, as in so many servo leads or multi point connectors, and I'm not going sbus before anyone suggests it.

That looks nice cymaz, what is it? Home design or plan/kit, and what size engines, / wingspan? Would be interested. thumbs up

15/05/2019 08:29:33

I agree chaps.mind made up, set up the mechanics correctly, and shouldn't have a problem, thanks for everyone's input though. Much appreciated.

Cymaz- sounds intriguing, but I won't be purchasing another transmitter.

Jon, using RCV 58 CDs. In a Richard Wills 72 " BF110. Super little engines, never had one cut, run them inverted, and actually have to use throttle cut to stop them. Actually have 4x off them, so 2x spares. Was thinking of the Tony Nijhuis Beaufighter maybe sometime in the future, yes I know " pie in the sky " however he doesn't list it in his collection for some reason, so don't know if there's a laser cut parts kit , nacelles, spinners etc available anywhere. I have read the thread on here I think? Same as BT did one in the early years, and that's not listed anywhere either. So open to options for another twin to accommodate 2x 60 size four strokes.

Cheers for that Jon 🖒. Hope the business is doing well and all now back in production. I do visit your website periodically to abreast of your situation. Keep up the good work.

Cheers Guys for the speedy reply. Really only wanted to know if it was feasible on an 8J. Being my first twin, thought it might be a better option rather then fiddling manually. Obviously I will be using the same servos, matching the linkages /travels etc.

And it would seem a slight variation in rpm is not critical then. As said why complicate the issue. And shell out on an expensive transmitter with all the " bells and whistles" when it's not required.

Do you guys use a tacho? Or just set up by ear/ sound, for balancing the engines?

I fly futaba, using a 8J s-fhss protocol, I want to be able to program 2 channels to operate twin throttles on my tx. Ie , channel 3 master Throttle, with a slave channel operating the other throttle, twin ic BF110, having scand the manual this would appear as not an option. So thinking I will have to set it up manually and use a y lead.

If anyone knows different? Please could you advise me. If not which futaba tx would give me the option to allow tx setting up for twin throttle operation ?

And please I'm not swapping out to any other brand of radio, as have 11x s-fhss recievers.

Glynn, are these AS3X units , (excuse my ignorance), stand alone gyros, if so would they work with futaba? I know speccy recievers some have it built in gyros, guess this would be away of eliminating ""fish tailing" ?? Being an old fashioned modeller don't do new fangled electronics very well.i

Dave try looking at the Brian Taylor 110
Plans available from "sarik Hobbies " there's also various build threads on various forums. He wouldn't release a design unless a proven flyer. Very renowned man in the scale world. Just Google Brian Taylor plans. Incidentally his 110 is 71" wingspan. Don't know the weight of hand but have the plan . however be aware planes will vary in weight depending on whose building it.
Hope this helps.
Cheers Graham ( cornwall )

tailwheel2.jpgOk, my steerable tail wheel assy . may not look very professional, but its functional, and with a lick of paint, it'll do for me.( 4th attempt)tailwheel 1.jpg

Hi Nigel, managed to get a good join between the pivot bolt and the yoke, using the j b weld as you suggested. Thanks. Will get some pics up soon never enough time. Work gets in the way 🙂🙂
23/01/2018 12:06:18
Thanks Nigel.
My problem is :- aluminium yoke, round steel bolt or piano wire. Trying to get a good join between the two. Yes I'm soldering / silver soldering other various pieces. On my third attempt now .
Thinking to make a square brass plate silver soldered to the bolt on top off a square flanged yoke. If you get my drift. Will post photos when finished the completed article. Otherwise revert back to making a steel plate yoke then it'll all solder up together. As I did on the LA7. only want to use Ali for the weight factor.
23/01/2018 11:00:45
Anybody done a steerable tail wheel assembly modification? ? As I'm trying to make one up myself. Only having trouble getting a decent join between the ali yoke and the steel bolt/ upright into fuz.have tried clamping it with a nut,but the yoke still works loose.
Thinking of trying epoxy maybe?? If so anyone recommend a good one for bonding metals together.
