I think you're on the right track there Andy, but, your intake must be a pure box, no air masses coming in from the side, top or bottom to interfere with the flow.

BEB, ours has just gone up to the equivalent of 80p per litre! But, with all the strife in the Arab world, and the Somali pirates taking Tankers, and NONE of the wolrds powers doing anything to stop it (except Russia) you can expect many more increases.

That's definitely one to remember.

That's bad AA, got a girl friend with that, they took some skin off her wrist to fill the hole. 7 years now and still going strong, hang in there, I want to see this build finished.

Nice one Tim, and long overdue, I'm busy with a Ben Buckle Radio Queen at the moment and was musing about servos. I'm thinking of going for 2 or 3 9gm units in the tail, if I can get the CG right, that calculator will be just the job.

Glad you've got a new pal Terence, a home without a pet just isn't somehow.

Sorry, I'm referring to Daves last point about crystals, servos are one size fits all these days.

Unless you buy something like Corona which will find your Transmitter during the setup procedure.

Just tripped over this myself Tim, lovely work, as usual.
Thread: V Struts on the Senior Telemaster

Interesting question David, I would have gone for meeting at a point below the trailing edge on the lower edge of the fuselage, that would give added strength in the event of a wing or tip meeting a hard object.

Thread: Soldering help please

I my experience the high silver content needs about 425degrees to flow nicely. At that temperature it all happens quickly so you minimise the localised heating.
Thread: Thrust line
31/01/2011 10:13:09
Hi Hogster, you'll notice that older styles of model/ high wing trainers tend to have the engine below the centre line of the wing, with the tail plane roughly on the thrust line. This means that when you open up the tail feathers are in the prop wash (gives you control) but the centre of drag, roughly at the main wing, is above the thrust line. This means that the model will tend to climb at full throttle. In fact the plan instructions normally tell you to set the down thrust so that the model flies straight and level at half throttle. A good aerobatic model will normally (not always) have both the main wing and the tailplane on the thrust line, this means that you don't get too much trim change power on and power off. All aerodynamics is a compromise, which is why you get so many different answers.
Thread: Wings - which is heavier?

Back of an envelope BEB! I think you might be being a tad economical with the truth there! However top grade explanation and maths.

Remember they use Cyano fumes in a chamber to lift finger prints off difficult surfaces

Hi Jeremy, If you're under 40 you stand some chance of teaching yourself. Otherwise join a club, or if you can, go to a professional teaching institution, you'll yourself many thousands. I wish I had!
