|Thread: New 78" Vulcan for twin 90mm DF|
Very nice work Greg - really starting to look Vulcanish now.
I have been enjoying a very detailed account of the development of the Vulcan in this book by Tony Blackman. So much (like powered control surfaces etc) was new to them at the time and seeing how they overcame problems is very engaging. For example, the cranked wing l/e was introduced to combat buffeting at high mach numbers which threatened to scupper the whole programme.
|Thread: Tx modes|
I have been meaning to give that Mode 3 thing a try, but it looks a bit awkward.
And Mode 4 is nuts.
Indeed Erflog, a lot of people can be affected by these closures and the financial losses can be quite significant.
This extract from the filing shows the major creditors - Messrs Walton and Renwick are the owners.

|Thread: Website Not Secure|
Noticed we have just been elevated from http to https, so presume that was part of the "sorting".
|Thread: Dynam Models?|
Yip that water based floor varnish is a must for any of Dynam's matt finished models. My Waco (below) is one of my favourite parkies. I did change out the ESC for a 60amp HK Plush as there were reported problems caused by the stock ESC and motor not being compatible on a number of the Dynam models. The ESC does seem to work OK on other motors - weird stuff.
EDIT: By the way, the paint job and overall presentation of the model were very good, but I guess the odd Monday morning product slips thru QC.

|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
Very nice and speedy work - with a bit of camo she could pass for an Albemarle
|Thread: An introduction to the 2016 PSSA Mass Build - A4 Skyhawk|
Just noticed the banner on the BMFA FB page - well done chaps. Thought we should record it here for posterity.
|Thread: Blohm & Voss BV215 for PSS|
Getting a bit more back on track, this is an inspiring vid of the maiden flight of a well presented EDF 215. Some initial teething problems are overcome and lead to a great flight.
The fuse, booms and canopy are hand made one offs.
No plans sorry, it's a scratchy built off three views and info on websites like this one: **LINK**
Interesting stuff Erflog. Yes a lot of modelling potential from the Luft '46 proposals and many RC models have flown successfully. I have been picking away at a PSS Flitzer glider which should be a good flyer I think with a layout similar to the Vampire.
You could take them down to your local copy shop and make a copy and expand them in size.
I did this with my Sorcerer plan which I copied to a stick and then had enlarged and printed - making this
|Thread: Electricity Pylon Interference?|
Oh yes, electricity can be conducted as the electrons are able to pick up the charge, move along the layers and conduct the charge to the rest of the circuit. The electrons in carbon are loosely bonded and, when energized, tend to repel each other, with sometimes explosive results!
Interesting indeed - that's a 750 quid competition DLG going poof!
Not much left.
|Thread: RC1528 - Avro Vulcan C o G|
Thanks Bill, but if I build another I had been planning on getting one of the larger balsa kits designed by Graham.
Sure Ray, you can never have too many Vulcans.
Rather a unique colour scheme - is that scale for desert operations?
Reminds me of a model built by a lovely young lady in her London flat a few years back
Hi William, is this you and Graham strutting your stuff? Awsum flying and spectacle.
|Thread: PSS Models FOR SALE or WANTED|
Hi Andy, could it be an incidence issue with the canards?
|Thread: Blohm & Voss|
I just remembered that Harry Twist made a PSS model a while back of what I think was a 215. You could PM him for details as it could probably be adapted for EDF or pusher configuration.
Some build pics are here: **LINK**

I had seen most these before, but this BWB is a new one and quite a stunner.
The model is not strictly speaking PSS as it is based on a concept drawing, but is a great achievement. This pic of it before the detailing shows that the layout is fairly straight forward, but the devil is in the detail with flying wings.
