|Thread: How many do you have in stock?|
The only time to burn it is when they crash beyond repair.
What's a SWMBO ? I never (quite) joined, being a bachelor (that's a man who never made the same mistake once). Though you have to keep trying them out to be reminded.
|Thread: Another one to identify|
Afraid not at the moment and it is a pain to take apart !
The other unusual thing is that it has a treble wire undercarriage. It was obviously built to be heavy. I think originally it was powered by a .60 glow 2 stroke. A lot of engine for a 4 foot wingspan !
It is either going to Spain with one of the other club members, or up for sale to anyone interested.
Thanks everyone for all your help.
We extended the cowl to fit the electric motor a short while ago..
It could be a precedent copy (it's heavy enough !) that has a hog type cabane.
The construction is mainly balsa. Here are some more photos
I am helping one of our club members to dispose of some of his models, which he will never fly.
This one could do with identifying. It appears to be kit built and is probably quite old. The nose has been altered (lengthened) to accommodate a large brushless motor and 2 x 3S lipos (6s). It flies very well if a little over powered according to our club chairman, who maidened it last week. Quite a heavy model as well. so it doesn't mind a breeze !
Can anyone help, please ? Wingspan 1230 mm

|Thread: Copying plans|
What plan is it ?
|Thread: RCM&E – The Inside Story|
Just remember Graham, to put the right engine in it. Not the round one that makes the whoosh noise and drinks Kerosene.
Oh, and welcome back too.
|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
Here's an interesting one.
|Thread: All change at RCM&E|
Best wishes David.
Time to concentrate on doing what you enjoy and enjoy what you are doing.
I doubt very much that you will give up the hobby, but you wont miss the stress !
Also Graham's "sabbatical" will have altered his perspective an he will be able to continue moving the magazine in the direction you have decided it needs to go. I'm sure you spend considerable time discussing it and no doubt will continue to do so !
|Thread: This forum...|
Speaking as a long time confirmed bachelor, my advice is "don't do it".
|Thread: Spektrum receiver advice please.|
Thanks for the help folks. Had it been mine it would have gone straight in the bin. The other alternative is to put it in a boat or car (with small electric motor).
I don't use Spektrum, so am requesting a little assistance.
One of the club members damaged his Spektrum receiver and lost the long aerial that comes out of the side. The short aerial at the front was ok.
He took it into a model shop, who "repaired" it for him and said it was fine.
It now has 2 short aerials, both coming out of the front parallel to each other. It is not fitted with a satellite receiver.
The club instructor is not happy with it, but the member insists that the shop said it was ok to fly using it. I am not convinced, but there again, I would have binned the receiver, particularly knowing the number of "arrivals" it has had.
Can somebody with knowledge of Spektrum please advise.
|Thread: Club Facilities|
Have just put an order in, but there isn't much Solartex left.
Even less now.
|Thread: Ripmax Trainer 40 wanted|
I'm looking for a Ripmax Trainer 40. This is for a club project. I don't need a full model, just an airframe in any sort of state. It is not for flying ! It doesn't matter if it is damaged as long as it is not matchsticks. I don't need anything else, just the wood frame. Willing to pay a small fee and any shipping costs.
We use one of these as our club trainer, so it would be sensible to use a model that the members are familiar with.
This is the model I am looking for..
|Thread: AirSail Piper Tomahawk restoration|
Well done Jon.
If anyone is interested, I have a couple of old stock Piper Tomahawk kits left (I haven't built mine yet).
|Thread: There went another one.|
Don't know if anyone has mentioned about this. I couldn't find any reference on the forum.
|Thread: Model identification help|
First, or second ?
|Thread: Free Plans|
Peter Rake appears to be downloading his plans onto Hip Pocket Aeronautics free sharing site.
|Thread: Sign of the times - funnies|
In keeping with the very first post in the thread.
We had a witch hovering over the flying field on her broomstick the other day.
We told her to clear off because we don't allow crones.
Ok. I know where my coat is.
