Welcome back from another Norfolk boy.

Not many hills around where I live either.

Welcome.

Is the Lazy Bee a little stubby thing. Like this one?

 


I know of the Clancy Lazy Bee, but that is I.C. powered.

Take a look at either of these site`s for the plan.

Outerzone.

Aerofred.

 

Any questions I am sure one of the learned members here will help.

Mine sadly is at the completely lost interest stage. Would be willing to sell, but would not be happy to pack for postage.

The one piece wing is built to about 80%, tail feathers built, fuselage not started.

Complete with plan, canopy and cowl.

My build for what it is worth.

The Mid-jet was a slope soarer. wink 2
Came as a free plan in an RCM&E silent flight special in 1984.

What month would that have been ?

Looking for a copy of the plan now.

An item I wanted from Banggod contained a LiPo.


I had the same message about unable to ship, so I have ordered the same item from Aliexpress!!

It has shipped out according to the latest update.

Have you tried a new USB lead.

Some leads are power only. You need one that does power and data.

Most phone charger leads are power only.

A partial guide to updating your firmware to V2

**LINK**

Remember once you do the TX then ALL RX need to be updated to V2 as well.

I presumed you wanted to stay on V1

16/07/2020 20:30:33

You have not updated your Taranis other than OpenTX to 2.3.9 correct?

If the answer is yes then just flash the RX with the file from my link. All should be good.

Back in about 30 minutes.

16/07/2020 20:10:35

No, you will not need to update all your RX

If you are running OpenTX v2.3.9 you have the latest OpenTX.

Forget V1 and 2 for now as you have clearly not updated that.

Download the file from my link and flash your RX with it. That will put it back to the V1 firmware.

You may need to rebind, but probably not.

16/07/2020 19:57:00

PM me your email and I will send you the file you want.

Are you running FCC or LBT?

 

I would guess LBT.

 

Or download it from this link.

It is all a bit complicated now.

Sounds like you are on OpenTX 2.3.9 V1 of the TX firmware.

V 2.3.9 refers to the version of OpenTX and not the radio firmware, which will probably be V1.

If you have not updated the TX to V2 of the firmware then you need to click on the download on the history bit.

2020-07-16.jpg

That will take you to the correct page to download the firmware. it will automatically download the older V1 RX firmware.

It is possible to flash an RX from the newer to the older version. I have done this myself.

 

Hope that helps.

Thread: Irvine engine paint
24/06/2020 15:50:18

I recently purchased an engine of E"vil"bay that had the following description.

"This is an OS 48 fs it is in great condition hardly used at all starts very easy by hand and has great compression and very smooth bearings as they are new with only 5 minutes on them. Buyer won't be disappointed it's not gummed up at all no castor in it anywhere test run on synthetic. The paint is heat proof and has been baked on in an oven. Great engine. "

No idea what the paint is but the finish is superb.

And the engine.

Superb.
