Thread: Servos
03/02/2019 17:11:43

Hi again nothing wrong with servo in each wing route , allway do it if I can.

If you don't want to use the Hs 82mg then try these as same size with metal gears good reports and fantastic deal see here

03/02/2019 16:01:47

What faild whith your hs 81s (the gears?) they are a bit small for a 50'' baronette with glow power vibration .

I would allways go for metal gears when using micro servos for alirons the hs82 mg would be good or larger servos if they fit also the the hs 125 mg could be an option

Thread: Krick Klemm or Mantua AvioModelli Fiesler Storch or neither
16/01/2019 22:27:18

yes the klemm 20/25 has a large wing span 2.6 m at 1/5 scale which is a large span for its scale, but it will fly well on a 90fs glow. you could always go for a KL35 which will have a lot less span, proberly still to big for your needs

16/01/2019 17:12:22

There is an alternative kit 1 1/5 Klem for a .90 or electric and thay do bigger too very nice, Flugmodelle aus Holz

mind you , you will have to use google translate if your german is no good, there reputation is good , here is one finnished on you tube

very tempting

04/01/2019 18:43:04

remember you can get all the freeview channels and a bit more (better picture to) with freesat which uses the sky dish so if you got a new tv thats got a sat tuner in it all you need is a disk no need to pay sky anything . also there are satalite freesat set top boxes available too cheeply

so if your arial reception is no good just go freesat for freeyes

Thread: Epoxy or Polyester Resin

hi as for getting a supplier with model making in mind with a comprehensive stock and good delivery and prices.

I have bought a few things from them, like some nice fine 25g/m cloth for skinning, i have no ties to them but just found them to be good see lindinger model shop here to the right page

07/12/2018 22:31:19

hi epoxy will give a lighter and stronger product see here for a general purpose laminating resin and i have found out it is very good a wetting out the cloth and nice to use. ( make sure you get the slow hardner as it gives you time to get it done)

Epoxy might be a bit more expensive but worth it . just remember when laminating just wet out the cloth don't try to 'fill' the weave first go , wait until it has gelled the do a flow cote which fills then weave and you can sand back this saves resin,and a stronger/lighter laminate is made.

Thread: face masks/respirators recommendations
03/12/2018 15:16:28

hi most fiters for organics use a layer of active carbon as one of the filters when you first open the filer cartridge this ex posis it to air and is 'activated' so has a predefind life, if you put the filter in a seald back after use you can prelong the life. this is what i do and my rule of thumb is up to 1 1/2 year or if I can smell any paint/solvent when wearing it its time to change.

Got one like these for over 10+ years and still good and change to the correct type active carbon for paint/solvents.and sometimes use it for dust but mainy use disposible for dust to a least FFP3 like these as are cheep and good for dust where no solvents are present

have you seen rc-soar very informative see about servo calibration and you can download setups for different glider types which shows how to do it and you can then customize to suit your own needs.

this site is a must read and very helpfull

windows 10 comes with a free inbuilt protection you just need to ativate it in control panel / system security .

Just another thing that's come to mind - the annual members' stickers. I'm bound to be asked, will they still be available?

Current plan is to enclose them in the 2nd BMFA news of the year.

Yes Peter. The arrangement shown above is OK for electric models, but for ic you really need the fuselages to be nose-down.

I hang my models nose up all ic , any potential bad stuff runs down to on the crankcase back plate and not on any critical bits, also any fuel left in system can't run out(can never drain my fuel tanks out 100%) and i don't have rust problems. Mind you they are all 4 strokes bar one these days.
