Thread: Corby Starlet Canopy

Traplet publications bought out some vac form company a year or so ago and it might be worth a phone call to them .I have a feeling that Kevin Crozier was in charge of it.

Hello Max that's much better. I will check with others in my club and see if I can persuade a few to order some as well (to try and spread the cost of postage between us.)

David, It would be worth your while to contact Ripmax by phone as I have had issues in the past getting a response back via email.

Great idea .

Thread: Lipo Short
07/09/2015 17:32:39

Hello Dylan. Touchwood you have gotten away with it. The Lipos are usually sent with a storage charge of approx 35%-40% of capacity . Might have been a different story if at 100%

I have first hand experience of having a 6S short while trying to connect a very tight set of deans plugs (I have changed to a more suitable connector ie either XT60's or XT 90's - dependant on current draw)

You are quite right, don't take lipo's for granted! I cringe when I see a club member at the filed with half a dozen batteries (Lipo's) all stuffed in a haphazard fashion into a Lipo bag. The smoke damage caused by one of these venting off is something else - not to mention the heat generated!)

I've done something similar in the last few weeks.

Are you able to check (via the balance lead) to see if each individual cell is above 3volts? If it is,then it shouldn't be a problem. If one or more cell has dropped below 3v then you may have an issue . (my original charger would not allow me to charge it as one of the cells had dropped way below 3V , however I subsequently managed to get it back up by by slow charging at 1/2C (.5) . The battery was never the same and I ended discharging it in full (its sitting out in the garden waiting for my next trip to the dump)

Lovely looking model. I would have considered it but I already have something similar in my Junior 60 and want something a little different. Many thanks for sharing the picture .

I've already had the pleasure of building the Krick kit of the Klemm (a mid air after its second flight reduced it to more bits then I first started with). I shall look up both Peggy Sue and the Atilla.

Thread: Model Suggestions for OS 30FS
01/09/2015 10:23:21

Hello Andy ,

I've already got a Junior 60 (wanted something different) . I've narrowed my choice to either one of the moths from DB or the RF4 from Peter Miller (I need to check through my old copies RCME's to find it - I seem to vaguely remember that there was a problem with the plan and this was corrected and republished . I could be wrong.

Thank you all for your responses and suggestions.

I bought a new/unused OS 30FS at the Nationals for a bargain. Scratching my head as to what to put it in / build . (I already have a Junior 60 so prefer something different.)

Any suggestion's?

Thread: Wren Engines go into Liquidation
24/08/2015 12:15:23

I have been on the receiving end of several CVA's over the last few years (and it has hurt) . Not nice but that's business. (Rich, I'm sure that you in your occupation will have seen a few of these!) Most of the companies that I dealt with were due to a variety of reasons forced into this position .

As a past customer of Wren Turbines Ltd . I would support the new company with my business and wish them a more hopeful future.
