|Thread: Heinkel HE51|
That's looking real nice.
|Thread: The Flick Roll - How do YOU do yours?|
So assuming all three axis are used, elevator, aileron and rudder...
Do the aileron and rudder go the same way (eg. both sticks to the right (assuming mode 2)) ?
Or is it right aileron with left rudder or vice versa?

We had a discussion at the field the other day about the correct way to do a flick roll or snap roll.
The were several thoughts on the matter, so I was wondering....
Is there a "trusted" combination in moving the sticks?
Is there a right or wrong way to flick?

|Thread: Cambrian Spitfire|
I can't advise on the Cambrian Spit I'm afraid, as I've no experience of it.
But, have you considered retracts from Hobbyking? They're much cheaper and there are multiple sizes/types available: Retract
BTW. On the video of the full size Spit, I thought it was interesting that she landed without deploying flaps, is this common?

|Thread: Unusual Plane ID|
Could've been difficult to see because of the light and speed.
Although I think there's a 4th aircraft being refurbished for the team and it possibly may have been that one that hadn't had the markings applied yet.
I'd hazard a guess that it could have been an L-29 Delfin of the new "Red Star Rebels" display team. They're being refurbished (I think) just across the water from Chivenor at St Athan.

|Thread: canopy dye / tint / dyeing|
I've always had great success with Tamiya "smoke" spray, gives great tinted canopies, and a can will do a few canopies.
Spray it using light "dusting" coats, 2 or 3 coats will give a good tint that can still be seen through (I use a Voltspy inside the cockpit).

|Thread: Mini velcro for E-flite batteries|
A friend has suggested that it's available on ebay (the velcro not the used nappies!).
But how can you tell if it's the smaller hook & loop?
So many sellers use a "generic" type photo, and the descriptions measurements don't always give much away. I already have way too much of the bigger heavier duty velcro (great for securing bigger lipo packs, but not much use for the little E-flite cells.
|Thread: Digital RCM&E Viewing|
Thanks WF, I've now ordered one, so I hope it's readable on the 7" screen. Thanks for the help.
I've subscribed to the digital issue due to tightening purse strings because of disability and coming out of work, (but that's another story).
It's great to view on my PC in the dining room but I prefer to read in the lounge or in bed, so I'm thinking of trying a tablet computer along the lines of a Google Nexus 7 (if funds allow). The bigger iPad is much too expensive for my budget, so I'm hoping the 7" Nexus screen will suffice.
Does anybody here view the digital RCM&E on a tablet?
What's your verdict?
Are there any issues/problems to look out for?
All the best
|Thread: TX Battery Charging|
Thanks Pete, I'll get a pair ordered.
Sorry to dig up this old thread, but I've just read it with interest, there's some great input. I've had my DX8 just a couple of weeks and so far generally I'm very happy with it.
The lipo is tempting, but until this 2 week old NiMh is a year or 2 older I'll hold off.
I must admit no not being impressed by the lack of charging cut off for the NiMh pack, so I thought I'd take it out and charge it externally on a delta peak charger. But... what's with that connector??? I haven't got anything like that amongst my many charge leads, is a lead with that connector available?
|Thread: New Foamy Wot 4 by Ripmax|
As long as the hole in the wheel is about the same size as the bolt/axle it'll be fine. Use a small piece of fuel tube as a spacer on the axle to stop any sideways movement of the wheel on the bolt/axle.
Hope this helps.
|Thread: RipMax Alienator|
Me too, it still sits untouched in the back of my shed, I hope it hasn't warped or anything similar. I really must pull my finger out and get it airborne.
|Thread: EBay Ads by Forum Members|
My trusty Futaba 9C (FF9) has been replaced so has to go...
And a Futaba R617 2.4Ghz receiver...
|Thread: How do you hold those Tx sticks?|
I'm from deepest darkest Suffolk, so I have no fingers, just 10 thumbs!
Seriously... thumbs only for me.
I tried using my fingers as well but it didn't feel natural.
