|Thread: Apex Models Berks|
Apex have gone bust ie they are in Liquidation. Having said that, they wound by voluntarily (see company's house website). Perhaps they may resurrect themselves or the Liquidator has stock to sell.

Spoke to Tim last week. He does pick up his messages . (can take a few days though). He has produced excellent decals for me in the past

I have two spare kits. Happy to sell one if any one wants to build one . May also be able to lay my hands on a used OS 48/52 four stroke to go with it. Please PM.

|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
Well it did bring a smile to make up for a rather overcast Monday (not a favourite day!)
Anything special about it?
Just noticed a Laser 75 on Ebay ( it does come with a Super Tiger carb) for a mere £350 (or best offer!)
Not too sure how to show a link to it.

David. Having gone through a similar scenario , you have made a good decision. I have very much enjoyed the magazine "under your helm" or should I say with your hands on the stick and rudder. Wish you all the very best and hopefully will look forward to the odd jottings from you in the mag. Take care and all the very best.

Very sorry to hear that David. Annoying thing is lack of communication and then having to go through the hassle of Paypal dispute, then waiting 10 days to be resolved prior to getting a refund!
Paypal have confirmed that they are refunding my payment. (Still no response to my subsequent six emails and contact form via their site .Such a real shame that it had to come to this , especially as there are such few model shops about. From my own experience Apex Models are to be best avoided .

Bob sent you PM
60 will nearly prop hang on the 6 S . Ive actually flown mine off the ground and carried out some pretty basic aero's on a duff motor . Which having stuck it on the watt meter was reading 35W per lb! So to answer your question . I don't think you will have too much of an issue with a .46 . It should give you all the fun with slow grace . Might even go vertical ! Take care.
Just been looking at your proposed motor . Cant see much info on the net on it. I'm using the Eflite Power 60 470KV on 16x8 APCE . Pulls about 1300W on sub 75 amps. Let me know if you want pics etc (I cant seem to upload those but could email them to you )
Hello Bob. No real issues re the electric conversion kit from Ripmax. Mounts were fine but you may need to tailor to your motor for fit. I'm using the standard Ripmax bits, with exception of having to widen the hatch area to fit my 6s 5000's . Worth making a copy of the battery tray as easily misplaced . I changed the captive bolt to 6mm (only because i had loads of nylon screw/bolts . Had two so far and both have been firm favorites.

Congratulations on your maiden. Its been a pleasure reading your building post. Thank you for sharing this.
I must admit going into panic mode on first reading about the demise of Solarfilm on this forum and pretty much bought at least ten years of supply . Wonder if I could have my body wrapped in any unused Solartex . Might save on the cost of a coffin!
