Thread: Aileron setings
23/05/2014 11:34:23

all ways adjust on plane as near as you can and use tx setting for smallest adjustment like chris bott above said

servo close to center and horn far from hinge

and put servo horn on after the rx and tx are switched on and trims 0

AR400 a great rx

Thread: bmfa online poll heritage and flying centre
22/05/2014 20:13:00

sorry for double post must buy a new mouse

we get our fare share of new members

but when your clubs in a secure MOD place where aircraft can land at any time of day and drop anything they like there is no way passer bys are wanted or allowed

as above colin put it cert a and b sounds a good thing

but to have it force on someone that wishes to just fly for fun on there own or in a small group in safe place then thats different kettle of fish

22/05/2014 19:30:43

common club rule of buddy lead unless you have a A cert.

glad our club not common

and if a passer by stops he would be asked who are what your doing and get out if the first two answers are not correct

lets just hope the fees dont go up to pay for it

or some other insurance scheme is sorted out that will cover the hobby for the ones that only what to fly and have fun

22/05/2014 12:10:12

the idea of needing a B cert is from that most clubs say B cert to fly where there is public that dont belong to the club you cant have someone not at a set flying skill flying there

Thread: I need a help with my charger.
22/05/2014 11:54:40

the auto settings should be fine

just set max amps nicads and nim i give 1 amp and lead anything up to max according to size of lead battery

19/05/2014 11:16:55

i find the lifes dont need balancing as much as lipo

if you get a long servo ext. take off the plastic cover a round the pins this will fit in the battery plug and the other end fits on the charger

Thread: Portable power source
10/05/2014 17:01:31

i use the power packs on my disable scooter each pack has 2x 12volt and i fitted deans plugs on each battery

Thread: Which Size Engine Would You Recomend?
06/05/2014 17:23:41

i was just going to say what plane well done for link

what is the gap where the engine fits then go from there even better if built with everything in it put it on a cog stand and add weight where the engine would be to see how much the max weight the engine could be before you have to start thinking about moving things back

dont get a little engine then have to added weight to balance it out you mite even be able to fit a .60 which will be a good one for next plane and on wards

Thread: how do you charge more than one lipo
06/05/2014 13:13:20

just buy extra charger like imax B6 charger that do 4 battery at once normally cost loads more then cost of another 3 B6 and if one breaks you have not lost the only charger

Thread: Power panel or not , that's the question
30/04/2014 19:28:29

it is very easy to add a 4 cell lipo to the side of a starter if you dont want a panel

some swear by glow stick for starting i use a 2volt lead battery with wires on will start motors all week

some panels have 2 volt out put

but you should be aiming to have your engines so well tuned that a quick reverse flick will start it every time

or use a chick stick ie bit of broom handle with rubber finger on

Thread: Thoughts needed on converting a B & Decker workbox safely for the field
29/04/2014 19:33:16

one try to have fuel can away from battery

ie battery inside and can on outside of trolley and have one connector easy to pull off if shorted

i all ways used a 2volt lead battery with leads for glow plug just because they are so good and don't go flat like a stick jobbie can

keep it minimal

you dont need the whole work shop with you

29/04/2014 12:16:42

all correct above

the battery heats the wire in the glow plug after engine started the engine heats the plug there for the plug dont need the battery so much but will still be taking a little

if the glow plug burns out the the engine stops as there no heat to back fuel burn

you can put a micro switch on the throttle so battery only connected at low revs which would make battery last longer
