Thread: New Tony Nijhuis BAe Hawk EDF
18/02/2015 20:10:37

Thanks for the feedback on the ducting Tony. I have seen a few larger edf builds where there is no specific ducting and the fan is fitted with a bell inlet. I have also noted that turbine models have very little ducting and have all sorts of bits in the airflow, but I guess they have thrust to spare.

I would like to see a Eurofighter too, preferably 70mm but scaling up to 90mm would be easy enough. Please!!

Looks like just what I need! And my wife cant complain as she works at Air Command and my 3yr old son loves the Red Arrows. It would most likely be a belly lander for me and maybe a bungee launch depending on the static thrust.

Are you planning to make an intake duct into the fan or leave it as per the pics?

Looks great. I had a chance to pick up a nib one at a show last year and didn't. Wishing I had now! I personally prefer the bubble canopy to the Razorback version.

Latest progress. I dont get much chance to have a good go at it, so its time grabbed here and there.

I made a slight faux pas by gluing the motor mount plate in upside down, resulting in a job to rectify it....

I think I will go with the dark blue easycoat to finish, I am not a great fan of sanding and glassing it will mean lots of that!

I was thinking of doing a black and white checker on the cowling to help orientation, but I'm not sure of the best technique to make it as easy as possible. Any ideas welcomed

Thread: Replacement rate switch for DX6i
16/01/2015 14:38:31

I managed to get through to the service dept after quite a few attempts. They are sending me a new switch for the pleasure of £4.20. Guess things have changed down there compared to my previous experiences.

I saw the new issue in Smiths today, and I was half expecting to find it on the doormat as it is usually early. Not complaining, but has anyone had it yet?

Thanks chaps I will give them a call

Hi chaps. I picked up a DX6i TX as a back up from a club mate a while ago. It wasnt until later that I noticed the rudder rate switch is damaged and needs replacing. I can change it out ok, but was wondering if anyone has a source for a replacement switch? I could pop it down to Maplins but I never seem to have much luck in there.

Thread: seagull msx-r

Thanks for the heads up. Its a bit big tbh and my wife would not appreciate me stinking her car out with petrol fumes!

I have been looking at the Seagull one for a while now, a couple of guys at my club have them. Its about as big an aerobat as I can store and transport. Shame they have been discontinued...

A pic of the nearly completed fuselage. I have to decide on the covering soon. I bought some dark blue Easycoat, but now I'm not sure if I should use glass and Eze-kote resin instead.

The motor has arrived. I have gone for a HET Typhoon Xtreme 3814 1070kv, which looks very similar to the OS motor they tried. I also have a Hobbywing 40A controller. It will probably turn a 11x7 e prop and my 3S 2600 packs, although if the 3000 packs work better they will go in.
I have the slightly bigger version of the motor in my Ripmax Mustang on the same prop. A good 5mm shaft and what looks like good build quality are worh a few extra quid compared to another motor I have.
07/12/2014 14:17:14

Here is my progress so far. Wing going together, ready for the upper wing skins after fitting the servo extensions. Been a while since I built a kit, but going fine so far. The Super-phatic glue works well, but a bit of thin cyano would help in places.


Thread: Paint again

Hi guys. Are you brushing or spraying the Rustins? Will it go over enamel paint ok in your experience? Cheers
Thread: What would you like from Santa. .?

I would like another 25 metres added to the end of the patch, and a 30cc P-51D Mustang to land on it!

In honour of the great 'British' tradition of Black friday, are there any outlets offering bargains today and over the weekend?

Thread: Painting Film covering
26/11/2014 11:54:11

I dont believe that Prymol will work on a polyester film like Oracover. That needs keying then cleaning first with something like alcohol. I have used enamel paints on film and so far so good

My kit arrived yesterday. I thought I should 'check' it <img src=" class="smiley" src="" title="Wink" /> before my wife wraps it up for my birthday next week. I took a quick pic of the contents. I'm not sure but it looks like the battery may still go in through the wing, but I cant confirm that as yet.

Hi everyone, I have just ordered the re-released kit of the Bearcat from SLEC. I had one of the original Balsacraft ones from ye olden days of Speed 600s and Sub C cells. As i understand it they have updated it for the modern kit we have available, so I expect it will get my 3S 2600 or 3000 packs now. I can't have it until my birthday (mid Nov) but I will 'check' its ok when it arrives
