Thread: Shaft reversal
10/05/2020 22:06:54

Swapped and reversed many electric shafts, some bought and others home made. from piano wire, grooved for circlip with dremel and cut off disc, the fact that replacement shafts are sold would indicate to me that it's OK do dismantle and rebuild electric motors, model engineers is what I thought we were!

Thread: Any better ways to store glue ??

Hi fellas, don't know if anyone's aware but gorilla glue , once it starts to get too thick to use then give it ten seconds in the microwave, brings back all it's viscosity..

Hi Simon, just started reading this build blog today, got to say I'm impressed with your tenacity and engineering skills, it's always interesting to see what technology is being utilised for non traditional balsa bashing. Now I've read so far and following, any chance of posting links to your other builds or is it in your profile.... Glyn

Thread: source of 2mm Depron?
28/10/2019 19:40:36

Hi, I've also been pondering this one and either thought about sanding b&q 3mm down to 2mm or I have been looking at the hb10 food boxes from ebay, each box would give you two sheets roughly 200 x 120 mm, 25 boxes for about £7, don't quote me but I think it's 2mm, a call into your local kebab shop may confirm..

Just recently built the edge and had a dozen flights before the Xmas , used the hot glue and didn't have a problem although,like you, I was thinking that the glue would set before I had the chance to complete the joint, it was never a problem once the glue got up to working temperature. The motor mount isn't substantial enough, you need to beef up this area, evidently the waxed paper is a pig to paint and there isn't much that will adhere, I have bullet tape on mine in red bull blue n red but no graphics. The flying characteristics....... One of my most forgiving aeroplanes in the hanger, takes off easily and straight as an arrow, will perform 3D and aerobatics easily, tracks straight and inverted is a piece of cake even for me! 2200 mah 3 cell and a park 450 motor, can't remember prop size but will check and update......glyn

Thread: My last foam board build before the balsa journey

Built one a month or so ago, flies like a pussycat on a 2200 3 cell, really floats but very capable aerobatics motor mount could do with beefing up, think your coat hanger idea won't stand up, too soft, 2.5mm piano wire would be good
Thread: Replacement shafts?

LMS, get the relevant size piano wire and make your own, a Dremel helps as piano wire is too hard to cut with hacksaw.g

Heard s​one strange points of view here, some folk think that banning something makes the problem go away, a bit like heroin, drink driving, speeding and anything else that's been banned...the problem just vanished

Thread: dx9 problems
17/05/2016 18:07:18

I'm with Ben on this one and not sitting on the fence. Just recently got my Dx7 back from HH. Said they couldn't find any fault but replaced rf board for peace of mind. Not been a problem since but it is early days yet. Would suggest op send the tx to H H before it causes more grief....g

Hi Ben, got to say you had my sympathy with your saga, I couldn't at the time be positive that I had the same issues, I am sure now and there is no amount of trying to blame anything else would convince me. Sorry guys and I do appreciate any advice or help that may give me another idea to try but after following Bens thread I think I have covered all the simple things, this problem, imo is the one that you can't see.....the signal.....g
