Thread: Next stop Elvington
29/07/2015 21:00:08

Any idea what time the Vulcan is scheduled to display? Just i'm going to have to bring my 1 & 3 year olds so don't want to be their too early as they will probably have had enough after 2 hours. So would rather be their the time it displays.

Thread: Summer is here!!....Who's been flying??
22/07/2015 11:49:45

Managed to finally maiden my new to me trex 450seV2. Been waiting over a week as it's been so windy. I was at Blyths field for 9am and the wind was between 8-10mph which is a little on the strong side for a little heli but I wanted to do some final setting up so went for it. Put 4 lipos through it all about 6 minute flights. Managed to get all the adjustments done and flew some small figure of 8 circuits on the last lipo but it was too windy to really enjoy it. Hopefully get some nice windless evening flights in before the end of summer:

Not surprised this buyer wasn't happy with the supplied canopy for the trex 450 they had bought.



Thread: Charger to charger?
28/06/2015 07:42:30

I've been using one of these for years to power my ripmax pro peak constellation charger although mine is rated at 6 amps and 72watts. I regularly charge three 2200mah 11.1v lipos in parallel which is just over the amp rating but never had a problem yes

Got one 12 minute flight in with my nexus heli tonight between showers yes Really loving flying it at the minute. Although I need to catch up with some of the other lads that fly helis in my club as need a bit of help with the tail as it just doesn't yaw as quick as I'd expect. So I'm thinking the gyro is trying to cancel out my imput of full yaw.

Great night at blyth last night, 10-15 members present and mostly all flying including 3 students taking turns on our club trainer yes

Personally I flew my Dave Smith Panther for one 12 minute flight which flys like it's on rails and then I concentrated on my Nexus heli. I had two 15 minute flights with it. The first was mainly hovering and small side to side movements just as a shake down due to replacing the main gear and tail servo the previous night. Then the second flight being a full circuits flight. Was great to really get her wound up along the runway, not bad for a heli that must be over 20 years old.


Thread: Club Examiners
24/06/2015 08:38:29

Andy, I recently contacted the BMFA to see if I could go to one of their workshop days as I told them I wanted to progress to a club examiner and would then be shown exactly what is required but they told me that only current examiners who have passed the test are allowed to the workshop days frown

Personally I think it would be benoficial to anyone who is currently working towards the club examiner test especially if their was a spare space on the day.

And also tried my Nexus heli that for the last 10 years is brought out once every few months and works without a problem but today it decided to strip the main gear crying Now trying to get a replacement one without having to pay three times the original cost.


Well managed to get a replacement main gear for my Nexus after a lot of searching, luckily a brand new in packet one had been put up on ebay £25.00 smile o Also having a bit think of how the break happened I remembered that I was hovering at about 1 foot of the ground when all of a sudden the tail massively went sideways so I cut the throttle and she came down level but the tail blades struck the ground,, so this will have caused the damage to the gear. So on investigation I've found that my tail servo is intermittently working when you move its wire. So took servo out of body and took it apart. I found the signal wire had completely come off the circuit board angry So in with a new servo and all is well yes I'll solder the wire back on another day

Thread: Two Wheels Instead Of Four
19/06/2015 23:39:59

Years ago I used to go on my mountain bike putting a club 2000 in a big camping rucksack with the wing off and sticking out the top of bag, Transmitter, 500ml pop bottle of fuel to squeeze in, glow clip and rubber finger guard. This was enough to fly but their would normally be someone else their so could loan their model stand and electric starter just to make things easier.

Great stuff yesyes I think the actual manoeuvre is simple for them as they had a long run in it's just having the balls to do it especially at 185mph

I take it you didn't buy that new one on ebay then!? I see it's now sold!?

Yes it sold, To me yes

I took my heli apart last night and on closer inspection the only problem with it was the main gear so with that in mind £25 is a reasonable cheap fix.

No one have one lying around then???

Me and 3 fellow fliers were at Blyth's model clubs field last night from about 7pm.

It was a lovely warm night with 2 - 4 mph southerly winds.

I had 3 flights with my Dave Smith panther all around 12 minutes long smiley And also tried my Nexus heli that for the last 10 years is brought out once every few months and works without a problem but today it decided to strip the main gear crying Now trying to get a replacement one without having to pay three times the original cost.

Cheers Marc I had seen that but hoping someone might have one from a crashed heli they no longer use etc.

I used 14 batteries on Monday night and using my basic charger that only does 1c charge and only has one lipo output and I had them all charged in 3 hours. As I balance charge them in parallel so do up to 6 lipos at a time yes


Edited By brfc7 on 06/06/2015 09:12:39

I run my lipos down to around 30% and then charge a few together in parallel to 100% as soon as I get home. At times these have been left for 6mths+ full charged. Quick check of voltage and they are normally still over 95% charged so I just use as normal without needing to top up. Never used storage capacity using lipos over 7 years
