Is anyone on here on their committee of their club ? If yes and the club own any planes, have you decided who`s registration number you are to put on ? Or if the club will be applying for it`s own number, someone has to be the responsible person, Who is that going to be?

The males were rolled the correct size on mine, but the female clivises were too big

Thread: SC 91fs will not stop.
30/10/2019 07:41:09

Lots of answers about leaks, but post just says when the throttle is fully closed, First thing to check is the barrel on the carb fully closing, Could just be the end point requires adjusting, when any throttle is closed the engine should still run, until the throttle cut is activated, other wise we would all have dead stick engines while flying. ?

Thread: Futaba 10J NiMh Battery Problems

Battery dead, new one required, there is no Lipo available to fit the 10j, but Hobby King do a Life battery, had one in mine for 4 years now, with no problem. But you need to make sure your charger will charge Life Batteries, The Hobby King one is Turnigy Nano Teck 6.6 v Transmitter pack £12.24 SKU number 9210000039, or their 4.8v NiMH LSD. AT £5.45 SKU Number 9985000002-0. But your local model shop will stock this one

So here`s a little conundrum for you all. Two BMFA members in my house. Me and my 24 year old son. WE. yes WE have 15 planes and we share them all. I have an A cert he has not. So come 1st Jan 2020 we will both pay the BMFA subs. I or him will register . Just the one £9 NOT TWO. He will have to pass his A cert or do the online (impossible to fail test). If either of us are ever questioned by the DRONE police.,We are covered. the models will have a reg number, and both will have passed the A test or the CAA test. DOES that all sound correct ?

Thread: A sticky glassing problem!
06/10/2019 16:09:13

if you are anywhere near a local car body repair shop. you could ask them to put it in their spay booth and just leave it in the booth for as long as they will let you, the bigger the body shop the better, as the oven will be on more.

Thread: Guess the fault
04/10/2019 06:56:32

First charge the battery to full, then check with a battery checker.Then test the switch, by simply plugging the battery direct into the rx. Then do the vibration test again, if still there try a different battery but connect via the switch. Only ever change one thing at once, Put the battery checker( the one with lights) into a different rx socket.

Thread: 2019 Special Issue
26/09/2019 15:58:51

I am with you on this Capt Kremen, Best issue i have ever read, Its full of topics we can all relate to. We more like this every issue.

24/09/2019 17:46:39

All done, only an hour and half job, + the 20 mins it was in the oven. New front sealed bearing Only £3 and the man says Did i want a good one or one of chinky cheap ones. lol. So got the good one. The Company is called Spen Bearings, and is based in Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire. I tried Huddersfield Bearings first. But they want a minimum order of £12 . Just engines wanted £11.10 plus postage

24/09/2019 09:03:57

If the front bearing is sealed (factory) then then bearing must be pre filled with grease ? as no bypass oil can get to it. I replaced to bearing last year but only with a shied one. i removed the iner shield. but it leaks oil like hell. so sealed it is then.

23/09/2019 20:44:06

Looking to replace the front bearing on my fs 70. is the bearing a sealed bearing ?

Thread: used Rx
20/09/2019 11:26:45

Hope that works for him Don.

20/09/2019 10:14:26

ARR so you want to use the rx with another plane ? Yes ? answer is yes . re bind the rx. Spectrum has model match. for safety. so you can not fly the wrong model. and the memory is in the tx not the rx.

OkTrevor. so you need to re bind the rx ? Is it the same rx that was bound to the DX7 ? Have you done any software updates ? Is the tx and rx batteries fully charged ?Any Spektrum users please expain how to bind the rx to his DX7.

20/09/2019 09:02:44

Trevor. Try explain what you are trying to do please. As the question makes no sense at all. Are you new to the hobby ?
