Yep a great day(s) out! thanks BMFA .Met lots of mates and missed a few of them too !sad

The weather certainly made up for last year , possibly a little too much !! The swap meet was good but its where your heart rules your head ! Do you need it or do you want it ??? I needed nothing , after 50 odd years , did I want things , by jove I did ! So how to the purchases past my other half , well thats todays challenge ! After mastering those flat spins


Thread: Take off dolly for a Funfighter, anyone used one?
13/08/2019 21:56:11

The catapult set up was complicated , It was originally made by the guy who wanted the opportunity to fly on his own .

But it took about 3 of us to carry it all out to the field , ( it had built in wheels !!)( an engineering masterpiece)

The must unnerving thing was the release was foot operated , sounds easy !! But you want to try flying and balancing on one leg , not as easy as it sounds !

But that shot was of its maiden launch , a success!

Not quite what you expect a 29 to be towing around the sky , but my album says it was 1957 , so a mad teenager then img20190731_12352900.jpg

I agree ,

But the lady , ex BA pilot, was "impressive " with her knowledge !


Thread: Perry carbs.
16/07/2019 12:03:35

I found and still do that Perry carbs and pumps are brilliant , and once you keep them clean like Colin says they are excellent !!

I also found that lots of people did not like them , so I offered to look after the carbs for them !! if you get my drift !

If any photos of my installation may help?? just ask !


12/07/2019 22:32:52

If its any help I use a 1700kv Mystery motor 2836, with a 40 amp ESC with 2000 lipos , with SD200 servos

The motors were from ebay for £11 complete with the esc (each) and still going strong !! a long time ago

I actually have 3 Easy Streets smiley and a Crossfire !

All fast and smooth .

My mate put a Hyperion motor in his and it was faster than mine !

Thread: Weston Park Worth the Risk of Showers?
16/06/2019 12:32:30

I did go !! And it was muddy and got muddier as the day progressed,it rained for about an hour 1 ish to 2 which did not help the mud , but I have seen it worse on one occasion .

I took 2 friends who have never been before and they thought it was fantastic, we got there at 8.45 and left at 19.06,

a long ish day , ! the flying as usual was brilliant and mind boggling , did not spend much cos I have enough"stuff" already .

Would I go again with the same weather forecast ?????

You bet I would !!

Thanks Weston !

13/06/2019 18:32:09

I dont think I have ever missed the Weston show .

I have enjoyed it every time , Torrential rain , wind blowing the Trade tents down , just about everything weather wise, so a few showers are no reason not togo !! .

If you go, take some boots , there could be a bit of mud about .

Go for it ! a great experience !


Thread: Programming AR636A
11/06/2019 12:34:17

Thanks Denis .very easy to understand instructions .

My problem appears that I get no response from either of my two Rxes , both of which came out of genuine E flite Planes, from the laptop or I phone . it almost appears that my cable a 3081 is " Faulty " .but I doubt it really . I dont have the USB type cable yet !! Therefore I cannot get past "Start/go" "


11/06/2019 08:44:20

Hi Bruce and 636a addicts.

I have had no luck trying to program my 636Aor 6335 at all, I use the sp3081 from my laptop and my iphone and all I get is "RX communication down " !!

I tried to register my RXes and it just comes up with Serial number not recognised ?? I am not sure which of all the numbers on the back of the rxes they want ?? I was trying to register them so that I could "update" them .

Has anybody got any clues or examples I can follow ??

and I am NOT a computer genious blush


Thread: Drone harassment
07/06/2019 10:35:05

We had first hand experience of a Drone Visit the other weekend .

We were a small group of fliers . 5 of us flying at a pretty remote field , with permission , when a Drone suddenly appeared at roughly 500 ft .

I was flying and shouted to the others who watched its progress as I landed my aircraft only to find he was actually now below me on the same approach direction, it then swerved off and arrived next to the pilots box at about 5ft away and high .

It then proceeded to the cars and examined every boot interior.Some of us wanted to "bat it out of the sky" but we did not think this wise , could have been a gang on them !!

It only left after a long long time , did not know lipos could last that long ! Climbed very high and eventually disappeared from sight ! Phew !! but returned a few minutes later but rapidly shot off when the helis were launched !

What could we have done ?? without knowing where it came from or went ??

not seen since yet!

img20190530_17501502.jpgimg20190530_17480206.jpgJust reading an E flite Sukhoi instruction manual ! I know its a rare thing to do surprise but I noticed two points of American "law" which shows where they are , I think indecision

29/05/2019 14:50:51

The "less than " 250 grms is the way I shall initially go as I have over 10 already and most will fly in any conditions .

The E Flite UMX range fits the bill as well as the bigger Edge 540 which comes in at exactly 249 !

The little Great Lakes is well within !

They dont tend to be relaxing but if its fun you are after without paying for it , the choice is yours
