Thread: ukcaa schedules video
27/12/2017 23:36:13

Hello Paul, if you type f3a world championships into YouTube you will find lots of videos relating to the subject. Just select the years you want to watch(pre 1984, that’s the year turnaround started). You’ll have to watch quite a few to get the general idea but the information is on there. Good luck, Steve

Thread: Upgrading to 2.4ghz

Hi, my personal preference would be to replace the batteries and check out the set. Provided it has been stored properly it should be ok, it was well made set in its day. Regards Steve

Sorry should read ATC groups

Hi, instead of binning all your gear why not offer it to your local AFC groups, schools or colleges, local model clubs to be used to get interested people into modelling. Seems to much of a waste to become landfill. Regards Steve

Thread: LARGE SCALE "electric" Hawker Tempest with BENDINI SOUND SYSTEM

I'm not a fan of electrics generally, I prefer I/c, but a model like that could possibly persuade me. That is truly impressive. Brilliant. Regards Steve

Kamco Kadet?

Thread: Radio help

There are no issues with 35mhz, it is a perfectly useable model frequency in this country,in fact the only one specifically for model aircraft. The issues arise through misuse,poor maintenance and sometimes poor frequency control. There is no justification for clubs not to allow the use of 35mhz. Regards Steve

Without a High Street model shop presence, where does the potentially new modeller go for guidance and advice. The Internet may be able sell and give advice in black and white but I don't think it's a substitute for face to face tuition and guidance. The closure of the LMS will reduce the number of people being attracted to the hobby.

Hi, that is an OPS Ursus, good engine apart from the slide throttle carb. Better of replacing it with an OS unit. Regards Steve.

Thread: SC46 cold weather problem?
16/12/2015 19:14:42

Hi, just a thought, but try either a finer pitch prop or a smaller diameter prop(10x6/7). The current prop may be loading up in what could be slightly denser air causing it to overheat gradually. I had this problem years ago and the props cured it for me. Regards Steve.
