Nice one Ken, great video. I must be getting old as I found the sound of lapping waves after the boat had passed very soothing. Cheers

Thread: 40 size engine mount

Thanks Dennis, I even have them in my nut/ bolt box. Cheers

Hi all, a daft question I think. In the interest of safety I have always over engineered building my models. I am now more interested in saving weight. What size Allan bolts and captive nuts would be best practise to fit 40size engine mount to firewall, Thank you FB3. Cheers

Thanks Russ for your help, will give them a ring in the morning. Cheers

Nice looking models Simon. Cheers

Hi Darran. If you get into another forum called rcgroups and go into forums then "foamies scratch built" you will find a host of info regarding your original request and far more. Our friends over the pond are into this in a bigger way than us in UK I think. Cheers. PS in this forum you will also find some great stuff called pipe laggers, designed by the late and great Tom Wright.

Thread: Strange event
04/08/2018 22:47:07

Thanks both. Should have also said that there was no way he was going to fly using that particular Tx. Will pass on BEB,s suggestion. Thanks

Hi all, afellow club member was checking out correct control movements on model prior to takeoff. Suddenly he had no movement what so ever. He looked down at his Tx and found all his readings had disappeared, as he continued to fiddle with the sticks everything re appeared and control surfaces were moving again. All his volts were well as expected as every thing was fully charged the night previous. A stab in the dark, I can remember many years ago reading on this forum of modellers having the memory wiped from their transmitters after spending time in the hot sun in the back of thier cars. My friend s Tx had been in the hot sun for some time before the event. Fact or fiction ? Cheers

Thread: Windows 10

Hi all, I have upgraded from Windows XP, to Windows 10. At my old age I am having some problems with it. There a few books available on line regarding Windows 10. I wonder if any has used them and can recommend one. Thanks

Thread: Where to put the lead
30/07/2018 10:41:30

Thanks Robert. For BoB, yes I do, and one of my models, a venerable old Skyways Hawk 70 has always given me problems when looping. Will check for axial balance. Cheers

29/07/2018 21:31:15

Understood Dennis. Thanks

29/07/2018 19:55:41

Thanks for the tip Dennis, I wonder how important is this type of balance ? Cheers

29/07/2018 18:32:49

Thanks for comments lads,I have gone with Levanters suggestion as I found I could slide a sliver of church roof between tail wheel and fus. Thanks all. I like Persy idea too, but how to balance the model for axial balance without elaborate rigs etc ? Cheers
