Thread: Starter mechanism on RCV 90SP
22/02/2017 16:09:05

Thanks guys for your comments, I am inclined to go with your thoughts on this Jon, I will just have to get a geared starter as it takes a bit of turning being a geared motor.smiley

Hi all, I have installed an RCV 90SP engine and also bought the starter rod for cranking the motor for starting, the thing is that there is no one way drive ratchet or similar so once the engine fires up the reverse torque unscrews the starting screw which is not desirable when you have to strip the cowl back off to re install it, am I missing something here??? looking forward to some feedback.

It may be possible to angle bracket it off the beam mounts.

Thread: Eze Kote vs f/glass resin
24/12/2014 20:44:54

Thanks for your advise all, I have used the traditional fibre glass matting and resin a few times but not on a model so I am aware of how tricky it is to use, I have found a very good instructional video on the manufacturers site for Ezi Kote, it shows the process from start to finish and although I take on board the advise that it is not as hard a finish it looks to be a doddle to use, so at the moment I am leaning towards giving it a go.

Many thanks once again to you all and I wish a very merry Christmas to you and yours. smiley

Hi good people, I`m looking for some information from any one who has used Eze Kote, how does it compare to traditional fibre glass resin, I would assume that Eze Kote would still need glass cloth when applied to balsa in order to avoid cracking ? I am currently building the T.N. Mustang and would like to use something that will guard against "transport rash" but have never attempted glassing, I have studied most enlightening the article in R.C.M.&E. by Danny Fenton and found it very useful but looking at resins it seems that Eze Kote would be easier to work with being water soluble prior to hardening maybe.

Any advise from anyone who has used both types would be most appreciated. teeth 2

If you measure the cord of the lower wing and add that figure to the amount that the top wing overhangs, (that is from the leading edge to the point directly above the lower wing leading edge) the total figure will give you the total root cord, from there a good place to start is 30% of root cord, measure it out on the underside of the top wing and see how it balances at that point, it normally tends to be about right and you can always make post test flight adjustments if it should be necessary.

Thread: Martins i/c Mustang
23/05/2014 15:29:55

Hi Martin, this is looking superb, I have just launched in to building this one too using the c.n.c. pack and like yourself it will be i.c., the plan states to use 3 gram torque micro servos on the flaps & ailerons but seems to have the dimensions of a standard size except that the distance between the bearers measures 38mm and standard servos tend to be 39 to 40mm, can you enlighten me please ? or tell me what servos you have employed, I would be most grateful, cheers Bill
