Same as Percy but the two best engines were a n Oliver Tiger in the 1950s and later on an OS 70 Surpass.

Thread: Panic bipe servo advice

It is the same size but the wings are now built up instead of foam veneer and all the parts are laser cut,superbly!

27/02/2019 11:18:05

I,'ve just finished my Perkins Panic and with a 6s 4500ma Lipo it balancess just about ok ,it weighs 5lb 7ounces which is about a pound less than the old ones with a 60 up front I seem to remember.

I,'ve been using these for a couple of years now Percy with no problems,I fit them ttoo foamies for a couple of flights first the to prove them which is probably a good idea with all Rx,s.

13/02/2019 20:01:43

Of you are using Spectrum then DSMX Rx,s are about £7 from Banggood which will not break the bank!

Thread: Another scam? Sinister this time
05/02/2019 17:35:31

I kept someone going for about 5 minutes about an accident and when they found it happened in 1940 they sort of lost interest.

Thread: Heated Lipo Bag?
26/01/2019 08:52:16

Hi,Simon, I have borrowed a cool bag from SHMBO and I put in a 3cell Lipo which is not a very good now connected to a 5watt 12 volt car bulb, this keeps the Lipo,s nice and warm for a few hours,just be careful not to run the battery too low!

Thread: How long have you been in the hobby?
23/01/2019 22:12:26

Well done Old John,I thought I was pushing it at 81so I will tell my friends at the club they might have to put up with me for a few more years, but if they read about you they won,t take over the grass cutting as I,m still young. Do you remember when a small diesel was a couple of weeks wages? Tell them that today.Brian.

My uncle built me a glider while he was in the navy in 1942 or 1943 and that got me going ,it was probably the smell of dope,been at it ever since with just a short break for some fishing.

Thread: Lidl Sander
21/01/2019 09:55:49

Forceps are very cheap on eBay and you can sometimes find them in markets.

Thread: Latent Servo Response
11/01/2019 16:38:12

Sometimes it,s a good idea to unplug everything and then replug ,it makes sure there is a good connection and that the plugs have not worked loose, I used to be a tv repairman and so often customers said their Rc handsets had failed but just take the batteries out and put them back in and very often all would be well.

Thread: RadianPro Battery question
06/01/2019 19:22:58

It all depends on conditions but with 2200ma Lipo 30 minutes is easy and if your eyesight is,nt too good that will probably be ample, I know it is for me!

06/01/2019 19:11:09

Definitely 3 cell 1500 to 2200ma

Thread: Hobby King's Web site ????
02/01/2019 09:57:28

Thread: BMFA Website down...?
24/12/2018 15:16:41

Probably someone turned the switch off as they left the building!

Thread: Recommended First Balsa Kit
24/12/2018 15:02:11

Why not try something simple for a start like the SLEC Limbo Dancer ,most of the parts are laser cut and they are British made,and good fun to fly ,pun intended!
