|Thread: Snakes - how to un-bend?|
They cant. like pat says only each end needs securing (ie the snake outer can't physically grow) I must admit though I do still pass them through holes drilled in formers but in reality this is nothing more than cosmetic
|Thread: The Reassembler|
Thoroughly enjoyed that
Proper blokes stuff
|Thread: Using a desktop PSU?|
Was just wondering that myself. Theres a really good electronics shop around the corner from where I live. I'll pop round with the unit over the next day or so and ask him. I'll let you know
Got my server psu from eBay. Arrived today.
5 minutes with the soldering iron to jump the 3 pins and it's working like a good un
|Thread: Aileron control rod attachment|
If you do need to open the hole use an off cut off the pushrod in your drill to open it up to the exact size
|Thread: Tony Nijhuis' new Vulcan|
Lovely work. I too have remade the ducts to go all the way back to the bulkhead, I think it's for the best rather than as shown on plan.
Unfortunately my fan units are 3s 10 blade as originally specified although I see Tony has now updated his website to say 4s like yours never mind, just started covering mine.
|Thread: Drones /drones /drones??|
I think BEB has missed the point as well Dai
I don't envy the team trying to find something new. However, other than buying this months to read the new futaba tx review I stopped buying the mag nearly a year ago as it had become too samey with yet more articles on Quads and foamies.

|Thread: Build of a Nigel Hawes Fizza|
Are you going to add some contrasting cover? Being so dark it might be a nightmare/recipe for disorientation

|Thread: Why you DONT thin epoxy with solvents, denatured alcohol or acetone|
I have always used epoxy skinning resin mixed straight from the bottles for fuel proofing. no need to heat them up or anything.
Just mix and apply straight on with a brush, you'll still get nice thin layers

|Thread: Balsa Building Boards Are They Worth Buying|
Plus one for plasterboard.
You are joking though surely You say you didn't use the plane as you should have.... But you think others should pay for that?

|Thread: CNC cut ply motor mount needed|
Ive sometimes used holecutters like this and used the internal "cut out" as a mounting disk. Once cut out you even have the centre hole pre drilled for you.
Unfortunately the sizes are a little off to the 47mm you want but you could go for the 54mm one then put a bolt and nut through the drilled hole and mount in a pillar drill and dress back to 47mm by holding a permagrit block against it while it's spinning in the pillar drill.
I have a holecutter set btw if you want to borrow it.
|Thread: sandpaper ?|
I personally use "wet and dry" (used dry obviously ) I find it gives a nice finish to the balsa. It's available in various grades from the car accessory shop.
1000 grade might be a good starter but buy a few of each grade and have a bit experiment.

|Thread: Pushycat, larger version|
I built a larger one about 10 year ago. Mind the wing was a foam core with a balsa skin. the fuz and tail just basically as per a scaled plan (50% bigger)
As Ken says, ESC failure in flight (with no secondary battery) ended up with the model
The only picture I have of it below

|Thread: Inset dialogue box for this site|
Definitely an issue with edge. It happened to me after I installed w10 (with edge as the default browser).
Went away when I installed Firefox
|Thread: wi fi help required|
Her mac should find available wifi signals.
All she needs to do is select your router name then enter the password you have assigned to the router.
Its that simple. The details on the rear of your router may provide some initial default passwords. I'm guessing however that you've changed the router password at some point and hence your granddaughter can't login

|Thread: Tony Nijhuis' new Vulcan|
I've just restarted building mine this week after putting the project on hold. After you've added the lead where does that move the c of g to?
|Thread: Hawker Hunter crashed at shoreham airshow|
BBC have just posted footage of the accident filmed from the perspective of the A27
|Thread: Drone Near Miss.|
I havent "continue" '(d) to chastise BEB Martin to be fair. (my post was a few weeks back in July). Im simply saying I read it another way (and still do). The OP stating "he didnt mean it to read that way" I also took to meaning "not BEBS way".
Its a matter of interpretation, BEB invited the OP to clarify it @ 28/7/15 21:32... The OP hasnt and as far as im concerned not a problem, just pointing out its open to different interpretation. Not an issue to fret over Martin
