Have you considered the Phoenix 2000 **LINK** from Hobbyking? £92.00 plug and fly! I have had a couple of these and IMHO they are superb flyers and great value for money. Many happy hours spent floating around lift to lift and flaps as standard. I had a Radian Pro before but have enjoyed flying the Phoenix more over the years, great for sloping as well!

Cheers, Simon

Thread: Park-zone Me 109
24/11/2018 12:34:35

Hi Den. My 109 is loooong gone but for some reason I still have the legs in my spares box (well 99% certain they are the right ones anyway!) You would need to get some collets to hold the wheels on, but you are welcome to have the legs and wheels if you want them, I will just pop them in the post to you. The manual for the plane is here showing how they attach **LINK**, and here is a photo of the bits. the wheels have a dodgy paint job on them but a bit of tlc will sort that out. PM me if you want them, cheers, Simon

There is one on Outerzone **LINK** here. Its from a 1993 Silent Flight and has the build article with it. Looks like a simple build - and cheap too!

Thanks MattyB. Just found the plan on outerzone. Sounds like it was a case of style over function... I will stick some gear in it and give it a go!

Hi Chaps. I have kindly been given this today. Any ideas as to what it is please? Its around 36" (90cm) wingspan and looks like it might be fun when I get some gear in it smiley. Cheers, Simon

Well done Danny, its a gorgeous little model. I have an annoying twitch that happens when handling anything that delicate. I would love to have a go - I just know I would snap all the ribs and spars and end up with a pile of scale matchwood!

Cheers, Simon

On the canopy front you could try the 'shrunken plastic bottle over a carved buck' technique - link to youtube video here **LINK** of somebody having a go. I have used it many times and although at first it is a bit experimental, once you get the hang of 'chasing the shrink' around your buck with your hot air gun it is really satisfying and cheap to do. Here is one I made for my Acrowot using a 'value' bottle of lemonade. I think it cost about 15p to make! The lemonade went down the sink though - it was vile....... The other is a much smaller model, a Jetex powered Firebird but you get the gist of whats possible.

Cheers, Simon

Thread: Phase 6 nose ballast?
20/01/2017 17:34:16

Hi Chaps. I am currently putting a P6 together and am at the point of putting the cross brace in front of the flight pack in before reinforcing and boxing in the top of the fuse. It strikes me that the small space at the front of the brace is perfect for any ballast needed in the nose - and would be totally impossible to get to after it is boxed in. My friend has built one and said to put 2 or 3oz of lead in there first. Has anybody else done this to theirs - if so how much ballast was required?

Many thanks, Simon
