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

EPP, bouncy plane, a brilliant flyer

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.

Another vote for the Mobius.

Thread: YouTube Video you like
05/12/2018 20:51:23

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!)
01/12/2018 13:45:13

You could have made life easier for yourself by buying 3 lipos of the same size, type and manufacturer.

Thread: Hobby King
01/12/2018 13:40:12

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?
27/11/2018 19:38:50

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.

Went out for an hour....boy it’s cold at Davidstow airfield kulou...( 960ft above sea level). Flew this for the first time. It once belonged to a club member, now passed away. Flew without any problems

Wow Cymaz, you did well to manage to fly it without the wings!

Thread: Something to do on a dull afternoon
25/11/2018 21:10:01

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
14/11/2018 07:59:15

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.

Steve.

Oh, poor show, SLEC. My dad's is timber throughout, nice and solid.

On my bucket list of "to do one day" is this:

which is very similar in design to the SLEC one.

Nigel, I think I'll add that to my list too!

Thread: Foamies for beginners?
09/11/2018 18:37:38

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
26/10/2018 21:23:45

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
26/10/2018 21:16:24

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
21/10/2018 14:36:13

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
