|Thread: Air Retracts and how to store in a raised position|
Thanks for the reply. Sorry but I don't think I made it clear what I want to do. I have used rubber bands in the past but this for when the wings (and therefore air supply) have been removed from the plane. Thanks
I have several models with Air retracts (Spring down, air up) so when I disconnect the air supply the wheels spring down, which makes it difficult to transport. I need some "gadgets" to keep the wheels in the up postion. Can this be done using a sparklet bulb or are there otherways ?.
Cheap and cheerful would be good as I have several models with this issue.
|Thread: Paper Aviation Regal Eagle|
Just had a chance to examine the Regal Eagle kit. It appears that some work has been done on the kit and some of the paper is stained, but think the kit maybe complete. Willing to sell it, cheaply, if anyone wants it???
Thanks for the replies, good people. Can anyone say what the "New" price was please? Don't think it will go on eBay, even in September.
Not wanting to hijack this thread but I have acquired a boxed Paper Aviaition Regal Eagle kit. Not had a chance to examine it yet but think it maybe complete. The problem is, I have no idea what this "vintage" kit is worth. Any advice please? Thanks
|Thread: RARE LARGE SCALE RC Dornier Do 335 (Engine front and back)|
335 has now got a new owner - thanks for the interest
Just acquired a 335 with a wingspan of about 48" and a four servo wing with brushed motors front and rear. It appears to be some kind of "plastic" construction. Does anyone know of which manufacturer this is please? Will get some pictures whn the wind dies down !
|Thread: Binding FrSky8 (again?)|
Top man - top tips, many thanks
Wow, Many thanks to PatMC for the advice. It worked with both V8FT modules and the one V8FR receiver. It does not, however, appear to work with a FrSKY TFR8S receiver, although not really concerned as I know have a working set up. Is there a different method for the TFR8S.
great forum, great people. Thank you
thanks again Denis... will get a third hand tomorrow and update results
Hi Denis, thanks for your reply. Tried that with same result
Switch on TX whilst holding down bind button on model, wait for the beep and release button. red light flashes (fast)
Hold down bind button on RX, switch on - red and green light flash (fast)
|Thread: DeAgostini Radio Controlled Spitfire|
Sorry to all of the unsucessful enquiries, decals went to Martin, the first one to respond. Thanks for all the interest
As part of a "shed find" I have the decals, (issue No 52) if anyone would like them (for cost of postage)
|Thread: Priory Models Silhouette|
I have a Silhouette for sale . It's about 3/4 built and has all of the "extra's" (cowl, u/c legs, tail wheel etc.) and the wood parts to complete it. The wings are in need of some attention as some areas of the veneer has come loose but other than that it's well built and in good condition. Offers ?
|Thread: Can anyone ID this motor please ?|
Thanks to all the replies and it looks like PatMc has got it right (thanks). I have wired up an Rx and when I turn on all I get is a Dar Dit sound and as soon as I move the throttle forward I get what can only be described as an alarm (or a very fast Police Siren) and the motor vibrates a little. Any Clues please ? This is it
Cyclon Plug and Fly 40 moteur brushless electronic model
Has anyone ever seen an electric motor with built in ESC as per the attached pic ? The 3 core control wire goes to the throttle on the Rx and the 2 thick wires go straight to the lipo. No BEC. Seems strange to me so any help is appreciated. Thanks
|Thread: RealityCraft PlaneMaster CD Required|
I have the RealityCraft PlaneMaster (and expansion CD) but unfortunately have misleaid the original CD so the simulator won't work. Does anyone have a CD (with code) please?
|Thread: Servo replacement for acro wot foam e?|
I damaged mine on my AcroWot (tripped and knocked the aileron, not crashed). I removed the servo, just enough so that I could get to the screws underneath and removed the top. (that way there was no danger of disconnecting the extension lead). It was obvious which gear was damaged and so I replaced the gears with some from a servo from a previous damaged (crashed this time) Wot4 foamie. Job done.
|Thread: Wot 4 Foamie - New Motor Required|
I fitted one of the XYH35x36 and a new 40A ESC to my Wot4 and on a well used 3S 2200mAh it flew OK but not any better than the original motor. The next time I flew it I used a new 2200mAh 3S nano-tech battery and cooked the motor after about 4 minutes (it smells burnt !). GS state that this motor is not suitable for the Wot4 Foamie and definitely not 11" props so be careful before you spend your money.
reply (edited) from GS
I think motor is rather small in terms of power output for a Wot 4. it's current rating of 25 amps equates to around just 262 watts. (25amps running current X an ON LOAD lipo voltage of about 10.5 volts)
