Thread: TN Hawker Hunter Mini jet

I have been using super-phatic glue on my Hunters flock hinges, gives you working time.

Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Jet Provost & Folland Gnat

If you want to fit a catapult hook, a good position to start is 2/3 of the distance back from the nose to the cg. For example if the tip of the nose to the cg is 60cm, fit the hook 40cm back from the nose. This helps pull the model forward, you don't want to zoom upwards like a hi-start. This is from my own experience and info gained from RC Groups EDF forums over time.

If you have a smaller diameter exhaust, you end up with less static thrust put higher efflux speed. A bigger diameter gives more static thrust, but lower efflux speed. This is what I understand to be correct for older lower blade count fans, I think higher blade counts do need a slightly bigger exit. I thought the Provost was supposed to be a 4s setup BTW?

I tried powering up my Hunter yesterday before covering and final fit out, it had just below 1:1 thrust ratio on a 45% charged 25c 3s pack. Not hooked it up to the watt meter yet though. FMS fan from 4-max.

Looking good

Thread: TN Hawker Hunter Mini jet
22/05/2020 20:32:40

Thanks for your replies guys. I have seen the notch in the front of the wing on another build, so I have cut a section out already. I thought it was more to do with getting the pack in through the hatch, rather than its position. I have blue foam so I will make a spacer to locate the pack. I might also look at some cooling inlets near the nose too. Cheers

I am nearing the end of my build, and have a question. The outline of the 3S 2200 lipo on the plan is much smaller than any of the standard 2200 packs I have, and I am getting concerned about making the cg work. Can anyone let me know what you are using and was the cg an issue? I am thinking the pack will be too big and far forward.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply Pete. I worked out that you are supposed to put notches in the stringers at the rear so they fit F9 properly. The confusion was caused by the plan referring to the stringers as spars! The same for the shallow slots on F6. I have my acetate for the thrust tube now so I can crack on Cheers

Hi chaps. I have just started my build with the CNC kit. A little head scratcher I have come across. Where the 5mm stringers fit into the rear former F9, they need to be thinned down to fit flush with the outer edge of the former. I can't find where on the plan you start thinning then down after leaving F6? Not mentioned in the build article either unless I missed it. Cheers

Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Sabre & MiG15 RCM&E 2018 Special
06/10/2019 12:32:15

Hi everyone. I am considering the Sabre from the mini jet selection at the moment. So can we say that a 3s 2200 pack is OK with sufficient cheater inlets? I have plenty to use rather than buy some smaller packs. Cheers

Thread: Ripmax WOT4 GP/EP

That would be great, thanks. I will try and find the dimensions for your lipo and use that as a guide.

16/02/2019 07:58:43

Apologies for picking up an old thread. Like one of the last posts, I was wondering what size lipo would fit in the battery tray by dimension? I would be wanting to use a 4s 5000mah pack, but they do vary in size. Thanks

Thread: Festival of Flight

I thought the venue was good, a difficult day for the pilots though with the wind. Part of the reason I attended was for the rc car displays as I know my son was looking forward to it. After looking around and finding nothing I asked the organisers. All I really got was shoulder shrugs, then I was told they had been let down. I really think shows miss a trick here, getting people interested in rc modelling in general surely helps the health of the whole hobby?

As for the commentary, it's a difficult job I agree but the style and knowledge needs some work.

Looks great

Thread: Looking for local club

The Hemel Hempstead club has two sites, one in Puttenham near Tring just off the A41 and one in Shenley near the Mosquito museum. The club has a website you can find via a search engine

Are the TJD Warbirds team attending? I hope some other good stuff will be flying rather than all Horizon. I want to see some warbirds! Hoping the going in the car park is good to firm.

What power setup do you have in there?

Congrats on the maiden. Looks really good, especially the last pic. Is it an own design or kit?

Thread: 2 part clear lacquer in a spray can
09/06/2016 20:26:40

I noticed on another forum that a guy has used a 2 part clear lacquer in a spray can as a fuel proofer over a painted finish. I have not seen this product before, you push the base in on the bottom of the can to allow the two parts to mix before use. I was under the impression that two part lacquers are better at resisting fuel, especially glow. Has anyone else tried one of these products? It would be less hassle than spraying for those short on time or equipment.

Thread: Disappointing Long Marston Show
05/06/2016 19:52:54

I have been a few times now, and went yesterday with my Wife and 4 year old. I dont expect a mega trade turn out to be honest, and as I'm searching for inspiration to fly more after a barren spell I wasnt looking for much, not that I found it.

I know that a lot of people flying at shows do so at their own expense, but the variety was very lacking. I do enjoy a Warbird and saw a few in the pits. Unless I missed them, I only saw the 3 Leccy Mustangs fly. I also like the Turbines too and thought the Cougar was really good.

One thing that does not help much IMO, is the regular quoting of the price of some of the expensive airframes flying. I am a fairly standard flyer, with limited space and time/resources. I would love to have a big 50cc Warbird, may be one day. I understand what goes into these show models. But to Joe Public who comes along and may be interested in starting, hearing these vast sums of money being mentioned could put them off? Very few of the flying community can afford such models, and I think its gone too far that way. There needs to be a better representation of the lower to mid end market on display, the kinds of models that beginners and regular club fliers can aspire to. I remember seeing the Multiplex Skycat fly at Sandown, then rushing off to get one. It wasnt that long ago!
