You'd best go back and see if it's still there - worth a bomb now!

Hi Colin, Yes, still going. I had to put a new motor in after a one-point landing, and it's got more sticky tape than when you had it, but still performs nicely.

I'm a rookie and have an Easyglider. It's the motorised version and really is easy. Very battered (it had been well used when I got it) as a result of learning accidents, but flies well.

Same here Mike. I have various magnifying devices all over the place. I rather like the idea of having independently adjustable lenses, though the price does seem high, comparatively. They do offer (they say...) a no-quibble refund, so I may give them a shot.

Anyone tried these? I have a pair of prescription 2x glasses which are very useful for workshop fiddly bits. These, which apparently go from 0 to +3 could be even more useful.

That's why I'm mostly using an Astro Hog for learning. I've got a lightweight 3 channel for calm days in the field next to my house, and a four channel trainer I built from a Traplet plan but which can be a bit of a handful. The Astro was built by a very experienced flyer, and is a delight.

At the moment, I can take off and land, sometimes on purpose. Single channel Immelmans will have to wait for now!

12/01/2017 12:53:35

"What on earth for? its a single channel model, probably the most popular single-channel model ever!"

I'm still a rookie. This will be my first small, fast model; I'm going to need all the help I can get! It isn't going to fly quite the same as the Astro Hog I'm working up to my 'A' on. laugh

Left a message on your phone, John

12/01/2017 11:43:01

Phil: Thanks. That's about what I thought. Is my weight target about right (~10oz)? I'm putting an elevator on mine. And 6x4 prop?

John: That looks OK. Does it have connectors?

12/01/2017 11:30:54

I was planning to get a 17g 1600kv on three cells. That should work out at around 14oz of thrust with a 6x4 prop. Axi aren't half pricey! I'm yet to be convinced that the extra cost is worth it on chuckabout models.

12/01/2017 11:22:31

Ah! Thanks Denis. Will it take a 10A/10.8v set-up do you know?

12/01/2017 10:52:40

Anyone tried one of these?

I'm after a motor for a Sharkface (target weight about 10oz), and this looks the biz. But 6g? Doesn't seem it could be very robust at that weight. And what's that connector?

Just had a reply from TJ's. He says he is still trading, but 'stocks are low'.

Not sure Jonryan, however it's a good sign that the website is still operating.

Have you tried the phone number listed at the top of the website?
It's a mobile number in the yellow coloured header/banner.

Yeah, I was planning to give them a call in the morning, thanks Allan. The prices and range look great. So good I'd've thought others would have found them, but very few mentions, hence my question.
