Thread: Ideas for new polls
14/02/2015 14:46:05

I'm not sure if this has been suggested or done before, but how about a poll on common causes of crashes? Might be helpful for beginners. My limited experience has noticed the following are common causes, but not common occurrences, wink at my club.

1) Tip stall on take off

2) Tip stall on landing

3) Mechanical failure

4) Electrical failure

5) Disorientation

6) Misjudgement with an aerobatic manoeuvre

I know it is not always clear why a model transforms back into it's component parts, but a best guess is all that's needed.

Just a heads up in case you didn't know about this documentary that's on tonight. I believe this is about the Mk1 spitfire based at duxford.

Bob, it's an artf. I have a bit of a thing for 1930 racers.

I love them too.

In my retirement I have the plans for this. Perhaps 1/2 or 1/3 scale

That's mad (in a good way) face 1. I bet your looking forward to retirement thumbs up

If you cannot pull down more cable, then consider moving the switch box up an inch - its easier than chasing all the way to the ceiling. If you fit one of those oversize facias, then there is no need to even make good the larger hole!

I had my old fuse box replaced last year and this is what my electrician did.

Thanks CA. It looks superb! thumbs up

Some great photos guys. Flying legends has become a bit of a annual event for me and my brother over the last few years but we missed it this time.

IIRC a P-26 was due to fly this year. Which I am sad to have missed if it did. I don't suppose anyone got any pictures of it?

Thread: Aluminium Cowl

Before ali cowls were available it was common practise to visit kitchen equipment suppliers and the like to measure pots/pans etc.

Now that's an idea. thinking

09/07/2014 19:13:53

Thanks guys. That info is very helpful yes

Hi Guys,

I have acquired a sopwith dove model which I think is based on the flair puppateer kit. It was fitted with a built up balsa and ply cowl. Well, I broke this cowl so I'm looking to replace it with an aluminium one. It needs to have a diameter of 180mm and height of about 115mm. I looked on DB sport and scale and theirs are either too big or too small. I would appreciate any suggestions where I might find one.

Thanks Hogster. smiley I enjoy the look of 1930s racer planes, so I'm sure my next project will have similar lines.

Well, I'm acquiring quite a collection of that type too. Perhaps we should have a race. My artf sparrowhawk versus your scratch build café racer wink

Congratulations on designing a stunning looking aircraft and a successful maiden Dave. yes

Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.

This is my latest model. Had it's maiden 2 weeks ago but suffered with serious adverse yaw when turning right. I changed the single aileron servo to two so I could program in some differential. And it worked a treat. I now have to get the hang of controlling the vicious swing to the left on take off.

I have same problem last night.. Web chat with customer service at 11.00am today said they have server problems try again in 2-4 hours. Judging by the time of your post it is still not sorted.

Thread: ok whats wrong with my computer
12/04/2014 21:28:51

A dead cmos battery would only loose date and time settings. During POST the computer checks what devices are available. A dodgy keyboard would usually stop the boot process with a keyboard error message.

So can you confirm that your keyboard is working or not?

Edited By Hogster on 12/04/2014 21:29:18

Sorry we crossed post. I didn't see that your keyboard is not functioning. If it is a wireless keyboard then the first thing to check is the battery and then make sure it is bound correctly with the receiver.

Have you tried press the esc for boot menu? If not do so and you should see the option to boot to HDD if it is working.

If not restart and hit Del to enter bios setup. Look for the page which displays your system configuration. You should see listed the drives detected POST (the bleep you here is the completion of the POST) if you don't see a HDD drive listed against SATA or IDE you probably have a HDD failure.

Hope this helps.
