|Thread: Thank You SLEC great service!|
Fully agree. They can’t be more helpful and have similarly had corrected kits parts FOC without quibble
spot on traditional company with second to none customer service
|Thread: Airbus A400 - Anyone else built one|
i personally used 4 x 250watt turnigy outrunners. And 2 x 4000mah 3s batteries. 1 pack for the 2 inner motors and 1 pack for the 2 outboard motors.
that gives a comfortable 5 to 6 minute flight time for me
Agree with Nik, it can be flown really slowly without any nasty vices .
I had the model out out at my club on just last Sunday gone and I confirm nice slow fly pasts are the order of the day
|Thread: Incidence Meter/Gauge Measurement|
I’ve been using the QUS smart meter recently and it’s superb
it was mentioned in RCME a few year back and it’s proved its weight in gold
The great thing with it is because it links to your smartphone you can take a picture of your set up with the incidences recorded See these examples (I’ve just laid on wing for demo, you need to use the full set up with leading and trailing edge brackets in the final pic for accurate readings)

|Thread: Balsa skin on wing|
i do roughly the same as Andy, except I run medium cyano along the trailing edge and aliphatic everywhere else
then line up your sheet (build it oversize) and carefully press down on the cyano line and work it back over as per Andys post above
When you’ve pulled it to the leading edge i wick thin cyano along the joint of the overhang/leading edge
works for me, the top wing sheet on this model was done that way
|Thread: Futaba 9CAP.|
Steve, probably the pots as Frank suggests
why not ask Mike Ridley (click here ) I’ve used him recently to repair my FF9... top bloke and great service (fast turnaround)

|Thread: Moon landing|
Maybe a sign of the times,... I understand though Neil always maintained he said “one small step for ( a ) man” but the word was clipped/missed. The additional “a” makes the statement more meaningful from the individuals (Neil’s) perspective

|Thread: Paint bleed issues|
The toothpaste and Dremel soft brush is probably the best way to go
As Denis says prevention going forward. I’ve personally found Tamiya tape to be spot on and for jobs like canopy window I would use Tamiya’s masking sheet”. I did my Vulcan cowl this way... great stuff.

|Thread: Anyone for a Tiffie?|
this website gives a technical reason click here
I have had that happen to me on occasion when uploading from iPhone or iPad. What I did was got into the iPad, select photos and then edit.
you can then rotate the photo 180 degrees and save. Then load into your rcme album as usual. It should then appear correct way up

|Thread: Tony Nijhus Vulcan.|
I haven’t made the pusher version but did build the edf one, a few pics attached. Not the best quality pics as just done on a moby.
Fly’s lovely, very precise and scale like
Build is straight forward, kept some pictures - click here

|Thread: Dave Burton (BEB)|
What terrible news.
I never met Dave but he certainly made a fantastic and positive contribution to the hobby and this forum.
My deepest condolences.
|Thread: Uploading pics from album using ipad|
I upload from iPad exactly as Ron has shown above without issue.
If your iPad is an older generation with out of date IOS it may not allow the direct upload option. I couldn’t do it with my original iPad 1 but my later iPad Pro with IOS fully up to date will allow it.
What version iPad do you have FB? And what is your IOS version you currently have installed ?
|Thread: New 78" Vulcan for twin 90mm DF|
Excellent job Greg,
Well done. Looks brilliant.
I’ll email you tomorrow re the retracts.
Next step.... the maiden
|Thread: Using Ammonia.|
I use it neat... works amazing
Just don’t hang around the fumes to long .... ideally do it outside
|Thread: Ammo box|
Top job ken.
Ordered my box yesterday
Hi Andy/pat. They both look great. I’m ordering one as well
I had gone along with the venting idea but now you’ve got me wondering Should we vent them or not ????
I too am looking for an ammo box, ken found a suppler but I can’t find his link......
Ian, Just for insulation from the metal box... help safeguard the batteries against shorts
|Thread: New 78" Vulcan for twin 90mm DF|
Mine is to plan and I’m sure Greg said he’s followed the plan exactly...on my photo I think the image is squashed/distorted
Mines waiting for it’s white coat (just done the tail as a tester)... I’m probably going to have to wait till the spring to get back into my spray booth (aka the back garden )
Wish I had the same Nevada climate that you have
