Thread: New 78" Vulcan for twin 90mm DF

Agree Tony and it'll probably be fine but this is the second time in about a week that someone has recommended a design for PSS without actually trying it first, personally I think that's dangerous and something that shouldn't be done.

People still think that PSS isn't viable in anything less than a hurricane which simply isn't true, my fear is we're in danger of encouraging people to give it a go with untried airframes and, if it doesn't work, will only perpetuate the myth that PSS doesn't work.

Might be worth holding back on the recommendation until it's actually been proven 'eh?

Nice Tony, has it successfully flown PSS?

It's a long way but if it means I can abuse that Mr Meade I'm in.

So it's being suggested for PSS but it hasn't actually been tried? Great.

I've not seen the mag yet so cut me some slack if I'm wrong but are they seriously suggesting a warbird with a fully symmetrical wing section is suitable for PSS? Who came up with that assertion and are they qualified to make it? My fear is that people will have a go, it won't work and we'll be back in the dark ages with people thinking that PSS isn't viable in anything less that 50mph. This will do more harm than good IMO.

I don't think this website needs ill informed comments like that. FYI I've just renewed using Worldpay without issue.

Looking at the original image I suggest it is the same as what Jim posted, simply a bit faded and crucially, reversed, the give away is the union jack being backwards too. I reckon the port side is per Jim's post and all they've done is flip the image to create one for the starboard side but they've been lazy.

MattyB, you say this is fantasy stuff, assume you work for Amazon and can therefore comment with authority?

Those that can, build from wood. Those that can't, pay someone to cut foam for them.

Foam is for pizza bases and washing machine packaging only.

Looking at that cockpit shot makes me mourn the increasing loss of traditional building skills.

There's also the added benefit that a Tx that unattractive will make you look at your model more attentively instead of what's in your hands, could increase safety. thumbs up

Reminds me of an old adage, "buy cheap. buy twice"

Richard, I don't understand the myth people continue to perpetuate that PSS models need a gale, come to an event and you'll see we fly in just as marginal conditions as a sport model. Have you ever actually tried PSS or is your opening statement a continuation of ill informed clap trap?
