|Thread: Mini E Panic|
Thanks to all of you you've been very helpfull
I've chopped of the front, moved the lipo up against the bulkhead and am now moving the motor
forward 10 m/m I'll let you know how it goes
Thanks again Mike
my lipo sits under the wing where a former is so if I move it forward and rubber mount the motor that should do it
I don't think it would have flown with the amount of lead I had in it and it would have wrecked a nice plane
How did you manage to get it to come out right mine is way out and I tend to build light
Many thanks Mike
I had one of the early ones with a c of g at 2 3/4 and the amount of lead was huge
I still don't know if its upper or lower wing but from your reply I assume its upper
this reply may be a little late but due to circumstances I've been unable to do any building, I've now completed
my mini panic but confused as what wing to ballance it on . upper or lower it seems to need a lot of weight
to ballance it on the upper wing
Many thanks for the info will check it out hopefully tonight, but with the current weather it's flying not
simulating I hope to be doing.
Thanks again Phill.
Having changed to 2.4ghz I am going to use my Futaba FF7 on my simulater
this requires it to be in ppm mode, technical spec's in the manual say it is switchable between ppm & pcm how is this done as the manual doesn't explain
|Thread: More fake Spektrum gear|
Been up the field today and checked out my AR 6200 full range with satelite I bought from Somerset
who had 29 for sale, and after reading this thread got a bit worried,( I have two of these)
did a range check O.K. disconnected RX batteries OK switched off TX then on again all this at
a range of 50 yds.although they say made in CHINA on the back, I now assume they are O.K.
(unless you know different)
|Thread: Christen eagle II|
CML have come through trumps, I phoned on friday and spoke to a young lady explained
the situation she said they would get back to me, I thought yea yea as nobody ever seems
to do, TEN minutes later she phoned saying the model was discontinued but all paperwork was now in the post free of charge it arrived this morning how's that for service, I'd like to
thank everyone for their help , and David for his wonderful memory,the cml paperwork states 7inches Erics formula worked out at 6.6 inches so I'll use Erics as a starting point
or even between his and Edgars.
Thanks to everyone again
mine are 11inches so they're near as dammit thanks.
I'll probably use Edgars plane as a starting point, if cml don't come through and you still have Julian Beckett the reviewers details cml produced an extra a4 sheet on setting up the cabane fixings to get the required incidence on the upper wing,
Thanks to you all for the input hopefully cml will come up trumps, Edgars plane is not a great deal of differance so I'll keep his measurments to hand, and I'll post the data for Eric
if I get it off cml (this post is not finished yet).
Edgar could you let me have your chord measurement please,
Mr. Ashby sir you are a star,
after checking my magazine 2006 special edition it appears to me that in
every way this is my plane I've sent an email to cml hopefully they can help
or maybe one of the very helpfull people on the website can,
to reply to biggles elder brother the finished weight is approx. 7.0 - 7.7kg
so you'r right it's beefy. I'll keep you informed on the outcome of my email.
On further investigation you might be right but I can't find any marks on any of the formers
and ther's a couple of things I'm not happy about that will have to be redone, the covering is either quite good or it'a artf I'm hopefully going to send some photos through( fingers crossed)the weight is 5kgs with no servos or engine,
to Eric for his sticky It's now stuck on the wall
Thats a quick reply thanks, It's definatly a ARTF in standard eagle colours,
but I''try and post a photo.
I've aquired a christen eagle II airframe that hasn't been finished
but I haven't got any paperwork with it, I've tried all the main manufactures
but none lay claim to it, can anyone please help the dimentions are,
fuselage 56.5 inches
upper wing 66.0 inches
lower wing 62.5 inches
chord 11 inches
All I need realy is the C of G and the upper wing incedence
Hope someone can help,
|Thread: EURGLE 2.4 ghz|
I would like to think so, but they are more likely to buy them out and squash them
At £62.00sterling for a TX and RX it's got to make the BIG BOYS cring
but as you say I wouldn't trust it in an expensive model, perhaps RCM&E
would like to do a review on it ?
Has anyone any experience of these units, they 'r an exelent price
and a friend of mine has been using one one for 3 months with no
problems at all, they ar ce approved so is there a any problems with them?
they ar sold by the Revolution shop.
|Thread: engine thrust line|
Thanks to you all for your replies, to answere Simon I'm building

my mount moveable up and down to see what happens.
