What a superb model !!

I have admired the SB6 since I had one as a radiator mascot on my 1947 MG TC , still got the SB6 but car long gone.

Bring back the past !


Thread: Things that have dropped off in flight
11/06/2020 19:34:15

The club was doing a demo at the local steam fair, Ross did a fastish touch and go with his SE5 , the flight pack came though the bottom of the airframe and the plane flew away never to be seen again .

Something dropped off as the engine cut on Alans bipe , he deadstick landed it perfectly on the patch and found it engineless .

A bipe I sold to a guy who immediately put a pilot in the cockpit , Whilst doing aerobatics the pilot ejected ,and tuned off the radio on his way out, the switch was in the cockpit to!!

img_2217.jpg Sta SilJust too wet to fly today , so made me a wrap round Pitts type silencer for the DLE ,It still needs welding . It almost fits inside the cowling, will only need a small blister .smileyimg_2216.jpg Sta Sil You might want to turn it upside up !!

Thread: Mini Cat by H Gilks
01/06/2020 13:19:22

Harry Gilks was a member of our club , there were only 5 of us , so a close formed crew.Harry was a constant builder and he would build planes for the rest of us to try out for him and once sorted we would combat them to destruction !

Not PC in todays world but brilliant fun back then .

I remember the Orange drop , lemon Drop and the lime drop I dont know if they ever were "planned " Must try to find some photos .

I only have 2 gripes about Harry ,

One , he flew the wrong mode and 2, he always left the pins in the the models he gave us , which was ok till they needed repair . The good point was he hated CB radio , but It was a great excuse for crashes !!

Good memories .

Thread: Oleo's on larger models

I know this might be " NON scale " but I use Gas struts from cupboard doors , On my big Porter , Stampe and Waco and they do the job well, All DLE 30 powered .

cheap as chips from ebay

May 1968. R/C Modeler plan and article , my first multi propo aircraft. , taught me a lot !

on the plan it shows angled bevels driving the airerons , , looks like 60 degree ones , so the up aileron will go more than the down one , I cannot remember the throws ,

But dont use washout as its a symetrical wing

img_2008.jpgcould not resist putting it together to see what it looks like !!

15/04/2020 19:39:08

I know its somewhere in this epic thread, BUT

what does the Stampe need in the way of side thrust and down thrust ???


14/04/2020 20:33:11

waco050213 001 (small).jpgwaco040213 002 (small).jpgThe Pitts type silencer must be the way to go , and seeing Pegasus 's one definately

I made a silencer for my Waco to fit inside the cowl , 8 or 10 gauge ally and it certainly deadened the DLE crackle.

Now to find some big bore ally tube !waco040213 001 (small).jpg

Thread: My Wildthing 60 has died in the loft !
13/04/2020 14:59:56

I have just gone into the garage loft to check on my "Planes ", The garage is separate from the house and I live in the country .

My FU2 wings have lodgers !! I lifted them/it up and they were very heavy and rattled ,

I also feed the birds and have a 12kilo bag of peanuts handy , except they are now balast between every rib and in the "D" section ! a field mouse I guess is the culprit !

The only way in or out is through the 1" diameter hole for the servo wires , so its a long shake ? I shall have to join a band as a casternet player !

other wise it has died !

Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale
13/04/2020 11:19:21

yes please Pegasus , any advice/help would be very welcome , as would any comments from Bert!

And like Bert the Stampe will eventually end up as my sons !

I have modded it wing wise as both sets are in two pieces , I did show them on this thread years ago , So its about time I finished the old gel .And now seamed a good time to do it !!

Thanks chaps

stay safe

I would like to see a photo of Alans installation ??

If there is one availiable


12/04/2020 11:07:00

its a DLE30 ! Same as our Waco and as I said out of the Porter so a well proven unit ! .

we shall see.

That bulk head is not strong enough so will need a bit of modding , Now I know I can fit the engine , I can start the re-inforcement plan !


and I will save up for a decent cowl (thanks )

11/04/2020 21:54:26

img_1955.jpgA return to the "build" after many years , The Porter has been sold so the engine has been freed up to put in the Stamp.

So today I started to see if I could fit it into/onto the Fuz, It will need a bit of added strength to be built in , but so far it looks possible . A moulded cowl would make a large difference relative to the "Room ".
