Agreed, waiting for decision on the subject..........

Thumbs up from me for the jets, is that the decision we are going with? Anyone know when the next RCM&E mag with the Hunter plan is on the shop shelves..................

Got a 6s one off Bangood, came from China, took 6 weeks to arrive and when it did the cell readings were all over the shop. Tried charge / balance which took several hours (i kept a good eye on it in case of problems) it eventually got all readings roughly the same. I left it for a week or so and checked it and once again it was horrendously out of balance - 90%, 5%, 23%, 11%, 88%, 88% i contacted the supplier who asked for proof of a problem so i sent them pictures of the cell readings. Eventually they agreed to replace it `a replacement will be put in the post for you`, another six week wait for the replacement which of course never came. Batteries from China..............not for me angry 2

Anyone used the 4500kv motor on 4s?

12/12/2019 19:36:18

Watching Tony`s videos the performance on 3s seems very tame, anyone upgraded theirs to get a performance boost?

Top heads up Gary, bought one for my Christmas Gnat, fingers crossed for it being included in 2020 the mass build yes

I will certainly vote for the TN ducted fan idea, i`m pretty certain Santa is bringing me a TN Gnat `pack` so i would be ready to go if it gets the green light. I may be persuaded to do a Hunter at a later date after the Gnat was done.........Martin

Wouldn`t be interested in a delta, it would have to something scale or looks like it could be a real plane........

09/12/2019 20:56:44

A couple of suggestions......

Keep the build pictures coming guys, will be doing some work on my latest conversion over the next few weeks, will post pics when i start, just got to decide on a colour scheme for this one...........Martin

Andrew, are you looking to put a proper pilot in it or a character`? Mine has a Monkee flying it............


06/12/2019 15:57:23

Paul, the Priory Models demonstrator was green and cream, looked very classic in those colours, here is one covered the same as the firms demo plane...........Martin

Having looked back at the first page of this thread i was amazed to see the Silhouette owned by IanN in 2012, that is the airframe i picked up a couple of weeks ago. It is minus the cowl and had a stupid silver painted canopy fitted which as you can see quickly came off! As i say thinking of making this one a bit of a performer compared to my other one which is a great general sport flyer..........Mimg_20191205_091102_resized_20191205_091136820.jpg

I have added a 3rd one to my models, i have my flyer which you can see earlier in this thread, an unbuilt kit and now a scruffy one picked up at a bring and buy a couple of weeks ago, no cowl on it and also unusually the front top decking is not foam but has been made from balsa. Thinking of making this one a wildly overpowered rocket ship on 6s party as i already have a great flying one on 4s..................
