I think Stephen is only trying to let us know this scammer problem will always be with us, and we should never be complacent about hackers etc. I for one thank him. Cheers

Thread: How to reduce voltage?
15/03/2019 22:46:06

Slightly off topic, would a diode do the same thing as long (dangerous) leads used to reduce volts from 2v cell to suitable glow volts for plug ? Thanks

Thread: Servo query
08/03/2019 14:57:42

Hi all, took your advice and my Hitec hs81,s arrived today. Being Futaba 148 man all my modelling life, boy these look small lol. I assume I will have to enlarge the holes in servo arms to suit my standered push rods ? Cheers

Thread: Plankton Flying Wing
08/03/2019 14:30:48

Thanks Andy, looks a good one, also not into Depron yet lol. Thanks for the offer. Cheers

08/03/2019 12:08:58

Hi Andy, I too would be interested in this project. Would it be cheeky of me if I could ask you to post some more details here when they are available ? Cheers. ps is it balsa or Depron.

Thread: Model CoG
05/03/2019 22:03:31

Nice one Nigel, I,ll give it a try. Cheers

05/03/2019 16:55:44

Thanks Den, yes model is fully assembled with wings on , tail on, engine on, servos etc. It would be nice to know a near enough figure before carrying on. Cheers ps always impatient lol.

05/03/2019 16:32:35

Hi all, not quite ready for covering my Winter build quite yet, wondered if I could get a ballpark COG with all the gear in etc, but minus covering. Thanks

Thread: Engine mounts
01/03/2019 23:07:16

Thanks for all the great info you guys have given. Funny enough I have never used self tappers, but the last mount I bought, self tappers were include in the bag lol. Cheers

01/03/2019 11:37:31

Hi all, as the bottom of traditional engine mounts are tapered, do you file flats where the nuts fit, or would this be deemed as weakening the mount slightly ? Cheers

Thread: Servo query
24/02/2019 22:08:52

Thanks Percy, I do like the spec of the Hitec you mentioned, certainly will fit in my wings. I assume plugs will fit my Futaba gear ? Cheers

24/02/2019 18:50:27

Hi all, my Winter build is the Flying Aces Sportster down load from Outer zone. 54 inch w/s AUW 3 1/2 lbs. I have always used Futaba 148 servos over many years of building models, and I will use 5 in total on this model. As the fus is less than 2 inches wide, I wondered if these servos are over kill. 5 Fut.148 are nearly half a pound which seems a lot for a 3 1/2 lb plane. Looking at HK 9g servos steel gears. Wonder if these are suitable. Cheers
