Thread: laser cutter
24/05/2019 20:31:47

My thinking is Laser is more like printing and probably less hassle

True about rounded corners internally,,,, using a smaller cutter can help,

i have routed out some ribs,, using a 3.2mm diameter cutter, the spar slots are 1/4” you can see the rounded corners 567aac9a-1cd6-48a0-8859-47c0f0139975.jpeg

I have a Ex school Denford Cnc router,,,it’s taken a age to set up and found software trying,,,

only just started to get good results,,,,,


my mate has purchased a cnc 4 axis router of internet,,, cones complete with everything you need,,, it’s very good and appears to be fairly easy to sort out .


and there’s the problem,,,,,if you need it for a one of job it probably won’t be cost effective,


if if you like to play and learn go for it,,,

although you can do 3D on a router,,, the laser is more forgiving if the speeds are to high..


I would prefer a Laser cutting machine over a router, if I was starting a fresh ..



plus lush the other issue is you need to have the capability of CAD drawing ,,,, google sketchup is good but you still need to learn it

Thread: Hurricane/ do they need rudder/aileron mix?
24/05/2019 08:49:30

I use the Transmitter to mix elevator  with the flaps,to prevent ballooning up when flap applied,

I have found that coupling a mix for rudder and aileron can cause a Rudder servo to travel to far if both stick inputs are put in the same direction and cancel rudder movement out of both applied the opposite direction,,

Far simpler to use both thumbs independently

Thread: Peculiar petrol engine idle
19/05/2019 09:39:09

It may be worth checking that all the battery leads are a good fit and do make a good contact across the connector rather than a tight plastic connection,,,,

and the battery is there a possibility one of the welded terminals has or is failing under vibration and loads,

I had similar problems and that was what cured mine

I have a Mystic with a NGH 25 petrol in it,, superb to fly,
