I've picked up a vintage Robbe Folland Gnat kit up from Ebay.

Does anybody have a set of instructions they could let me have please.

Check the charger settings to see if it's set to cycle and not charge

From memory I think the switch settings are in the system menu. Do you have the manual, I have one in PDF format if required.

Great service unless you live in Northern Ireland were they refuse to make the effort to post or courier items.

Thread: Scam
29/11/2017 09:01:25

I've had exactly exactly the same experiance with this individual.

I've responded to him that I consider this an attempt to defraud me of money or launder funds and I'm sending the email to the police for investigation.

I have a DLE 30 and replaced the silencer with a Just Engines Duo compact quiet silencer

Made a big difference.

Thread: X9D fails to charge

If the worst has happened and you have blown the internal charger, it's a fairly simple item to replace.

I upgraded my original battery to NiMh 2000Mah and replaced the internal board with an upgraded one.

I think I got the parts from T9 Hobby Sport

I have to give a thumbs down for Kings Lynn models as they absolutely refuse to ship items to Northern Ireland

even though it is part of the UK. Not good business in my view.

Thread: Sheet Balsa 43 " long
06/01/2017 21:16:00

I would recommend The Balsa Cabin.

They will select the wood density according to your needs and they will cut 48" sheet down to whatever size you want

I have done this on several occasions, always had good service and also save a bit on postage cost

Hi Barry

The picture in profile is an EconRC Pilatus PC21. Sold on and then sadly crashed by it's new owner. Was a very nice flying electric 50E size plane with E-flight retracts .

Hi Barry

Have you calculated a selling price for the RV4 ?

Thread: How can I create a new model image for Taranis?
21/12/2016 09:32:44

I've found with my Taranis & Horus that sound and picture files have to conform with the 7.3 file naming formatthat we know and love with Windows i.e. a max of seven letters in the name and three for the file type otherwise they won't be recognised. There are some characters you can't use in the file name but I think that's not what were discussing here.

There are many things that can cause this.

I recently had a similar problem in Windows 10 Internet Explorer freezing, problem turned out to be an add in called "Adbloc Plus" have you nstalled any software recently that may have caused the problem

Thread: Can you make a plane quieter
25/10/2016 21:50:30

I fitted a DLE30 to a modified 1.20 Electric size GB Models Yak 55

I fitted a DUO silencer from Just Engines and a Falcon 18X8 prop for running in

This combo runs very quietly and I'm very impressed with it

Thread: Which make of wooden props are good and available in the UK?
05/10/2016 09:42:34

The Prop Guy carries 10mm to 8mm carbon bushes for this , only a couple of quid a pair. He also has Falcon Wood props which I use.

Thread: Multi bolt prop what do you do?
12/09/2016 09:12:00

I converted my DLE30 to a Single Bolt Adapter from **LINK** Works very well but it does add approx. 3/4" length to the engine.
