|Thread: Hobbyking Hummer - adhesive experience please|
Plus 1 for UHU por.
I bet he's fun to be around or to meet at a party.
|Thread: New year|
After many years of promising myself, I'm going to get an airbrush and learn how to use it for aero-modelling and other hobby activities.
|Thread: 3D starter plane|
The Hummer from HobbyKing is excellent and costs less than 30 notes.
|Thread: The Bolt chuck Glider|
Yes please.....add another to the list
|Thread: lndoor model anybody?|
Absolutely agree Denis. A fantastically brilliant little model capable of flying in all conditions and will take a beating. I've still got mine after what must be 7 years now.
|Thread: Inexpensive lightweight GoPro type video camera?|
Another vote for the Mobius.
|Thread: YouTube Video you like|
I've been a follower of the brothers videos for a while now. Very entertaining and amusing. Their enthusiasm for the hobby shines through in abundance.
|Thread: Do you weigh your lipos (I think you should!)|
You could have made life easier for yourself by buying 3 lipos of the same size, type and manufacturer.
|Thread: Hobby King|
I have been using HK for some years now and only ever had a problem with one order which was sorted out amicably using the chat option.
Recently I placed and order totaling around 250 euros during the Black Friday sales; a selection of small items from the EU warehouse and a heavily discounted 1.7m electric model from the UK warehouse. Both arrived 6 days later, well packaged and with everything present and correct.
I will continue to use them.
|Thread: workbench design?|
Oh how I envy those of you being able to even contemplate a decent workbench. For me it remains a distant dream at the moment.
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
|Thread: Something to do on a dull afternoon|
I've been doing this for several years now to revive some stubborn packs back to a semblance of normality. I wouldn't use one as a flight pack but it does help prolong the life of some for use in non critical situations.
|Thread: Topmodel CZ Challenger|
May I chime in here?
Eric, Ikura is correct regarding the power train for the challenger. The motor he suggested, a 12x6 prop, a 40A esc, along with a 3S 2200mah lipo would be ideal for the Challenger. A 4S battery would be overkill on such a model unless you're looking for warmliner/hotliner performance; the Challenger is not that kind of model.
|Thread: Pack flat field stand|
Nigel, I think I'll add that to my list too!
|Thread: Foamies for beginners?|
Some interesting comments made here, especially about flying light foam models in windy conditions.
For me, when it gets too windy that most in my club stop flying, I fly my lightest foam model and have an absolute blast with it. The model in question being the HK Hummer @ 565g. On many occasions, the Hummer has been seen flying inverted in a rearwards direction along the strip much to the dismay of onlookers.
Agreed, this wouldn't be a suitable situation for beginers but to dismiss foamies as not suitable for beginers because they're too light is a misnomer to me. I taught myself to fly using small, light foam models and now fly all sorts and enjoy them all for different reasons. However, I'm happy to admit that I do prefer the, more or less, instant response of lightweight models in comparison to their heavier brethren.
|Thread: Buying From the Czech Republic|
I bought a Topmodel CZ Marabu direct from the company in the Czech Republic earlier this year. Excellent quality model and excellent personal service from them.
|Thread: Buzzing Around|
There are many of these and all are worth a watch. If you type "miniscule video" into google you will find them.
|Thread: Mentor v Funcub|
Having flown a friends Mentor I would absolutely love one but it's been discontinued for some time now and replaced with the FunCub XL.
|Thread: Multiplex which next model|
Another vote for the Funray
