Thread: What's your do everything model, or do you have one of everything?

I have a problem with favourite planes ,

When a plane becomes my favourite , I'm afraid of breaking it so dont fly it , hence another plane becomes my favourite , and so on and on and on ! ( so I lots of favourites !!)

It reminds me of the time when helis became "flyable ! There is /was a u tube vid of an american flying a heli with a repeater shotgun strapped to it !! in hunting mode!

I think that was why one of my lads got into helis !!


Thread: Does your club prohibit the use of after-market receivers?
21/03/2019 10:09:51

I mainly fly Sanwa 2.4 , very very reliable , never a single problem .( but no clone rxs availiable )

My problem with a "Ban " is that not too many people ( modern ) have ever heard of Sanwa !! and would ban it in pure ignorance !


Thread: Merco Engines
19/03/2019 22:06:38

I believe when Gerald Smith became "old " his friend John Scott Scott of Skylon fame helped Gerald finish off his final batch of engines ,

John was a fine engineer and had a workshop to be envied . Now he did convert many Mercos as well as many other makes to petrol, and worked with ED in the early days .May be one of his ????


Thread: Big Trouble in Model Britain
09/03/2019 22:44:08

I enjoyed it but found some facts a "little close to home "!

Like when the Airfix builder went into His well stocked garage of many boxes of unbuilt kits , and added that he was a member of S.A.B.L.E.!!

Thread: Hobby king Fokker E111
23/02/2019 10:20:37

I have a smaller version about 3 ft span , I dont know who "made " it, but it was a kit . it is highly undercambered .

I was given it , so no history . The maiden did not go "well" but it survived , now it flies slow and scale like ,BUT the horizontal stab , all flying , is set VERY VERY negative , approx 10degs . Probably all due to the undercambered wing incidence.

Super job DC!

Just remember to be very gentle on the throttle lever .

What weight did it finish up as ??

I think the pilot makes it .We are probably going to need one !.

cheers PW

Thread: Aldi Bench Drill
15/02/2019 18:27:08

I got one of the Cheapies years ago , the chuck was pure rubbish and actually flew to bits , I wear glasses luckily .

the taper fit and run out and hence the vibration when trying to "drill" was very apparent .

A new chuck from Proops and its been perfect ever since . It was from Lydl cos Aldi came later .

Thread: ASP 61FS Just Stopped !!
11/02/2019 17:09:22

and to Laser Jon ,

thanks for the offer of a crank pin , but see above , But bear in mind for the future that between us we have the solution , should someone else suffer from this problem .

I am banking on the OS crank no failing , it is in fact a far better quality manufacture !

Thread: Saws..A Cutting Question.
31/01/2019 21:18:43

I use a bandsaw for everything ! and for cutting the centres out of formers , I just cut one slot into the centre cut it out and then glue the slot back up ,and cover it up with a stringer !

Get a good selection of of bandsaw widths and teeth , biggest pain is changing the blade , and you can prolong their life by brazing them together when they break .


Thread: What does your wife or significant other half think of your hobby?

Thread: Prop rotation
22/01/2019 14:23:48

You may feel a bit of a plonker, dont we all sometimes ?, but not as much as the guy on here some years ago says he took his running ic plane out to the patch revved it up to do his checks , and it went backwards !!

He said the problem was that he had put the prop on backwards !! ( Think about it ! )He posted very little after that

I wonder if it was a pusher!
