Don't matter what it is you build Roy, it'll be a work of art and extremely inspirational as have been all the builds, looking forward to following another legendary build.....glyn

Thread: Beginner Flight Modes
28/05/2015 17:32:19

Hi Dom, my opinion, the best beginners plane by far, personally, I think that you may be over complicating things but that's not a bad thing as it helps you understand the tx and how it works. For me, I would set dual rates at 80 and 100 with 50 percent expo,set throttle to 90percent and launch in to the wind pretty much level and don't stir the sticks too much until you have gained some height. Plan the landing beforehand, try to keep the sun at your back and relax and enjoy. Ps welcome to the forum.......glyn

Thread: Bagshot !! anyone??
14/02/2015 19:07:36

had a few days down there last week and had a bit of a look round, found a couple of promising places but could be better, will be returning in 2-3 months for maybe up to a 12 month period so will have another look then, will try Chobham as well, sure I'll find somewhere suitable. Looking at some of the properties down that way it would be possible to fly in some of the gardens without the owners realisingwink.....G

Hi guys, I am looking for suitable flying fields in the Bagshot /Windlesham area for small electric park flier planes, nothing more than 22" wing span. Have yet to do a club search but that's the next thing to do. I am being posted by my employer into the area for what could be a few months and it would be nice to have something to do with my spare time once the weather picks up, ......G

Thread: How do i loop a Helicopter
13/01/2015 20:39:07

Hi Scott, it is possible to loop without being in I/up, what you need is forward speed and plenty of height, if your heli is set up correctly you give it some fast forward speed and pull back on the cyclic, right stick mode 2, when the heli hits the top of the loop your throttle/pitch needs to be at about 40% which will give you slight negative pitch with the blades still spinning but what you mustn't do is drop the throttle any less otherwise the heli will fall out of the sky and you would be very lucky to retrieve. This supposes that you have a decent understanding of pitch and throttle curves etc. Practice on a sim is priceless and I/up is a lot easier as the heli will virtually roll or flip on its own axis, good luck if you decide to go for it and don't forget, the higher the better.......G

Thread: Circlip for Exel brushless outrunner

Another quick solution is to roll a few strands of copper wire together, enough to be proud of the shaft and then tie them into the circlip groove then finish off by touching with the soldering iron.....g

Thread: xtal question for 35
19/07/2014 12:08:57

Hi fellas, I am looking for some old fashioned type help here, a workmate asked if I would build a plane for him that he had stored for about 8 years, everything was new in the boxes, Vmar Discovery high wing trainer, Enya 40SS engine and a Futaba skysport 6. Well I put everything together for him and got it running, I had to replace the rx flight pack but other than that all's good. He thought that because it was classed as a trainer he would be good to fly it off his own land, unaided!!!!! I put him right and have purchased a Bixler for him to start on. it's his first plane so I didn't want to go to the expense of buying him another tx, now the question is ok so I need another rx, does it need to be Futaba and if so I will obviously need a crystal, do I need a pair of matching crystals ie one for tx and one for rx. I I do need a pair ,then can someone enlighten me why the are sold singularly.......G

Thread: prop size //??
13/07/2014 23:35:15

Hi fellas, so gone and got me my first ic, a TT 25 size 2 stroke which I am going to fit in a 25 size high winger with aelorons. The question is..... what size prop do I start with, something tells me about 9x4 if I was guessing but a bit of knowledge is always better than a lot of guessing. The other thing I would like to know is, how do I know if I am overproping or alternatively not getting the best from the engine.....G

Thread: first small ic plane
02/07/2014 18:37:01

Hi fellas, thanks for the response, ATM both transport and storage are both contributing factors of size, all the guys at my club fly big and they are a good bunch with lots of knowledge, it's just a question that I thought I would put among you fella's. Will do a search for a 15 or similar and do a little more research, would love to build but work gets in the way!!!!!! g

01/07/2014 15:33:37

Hi guys, I have been flying leccy for the past four years and although it is very convenient for a quick blast there is something inside me that would like to have a go with something a bit more mechanical and messy!! Problem is I only fly small I.e 38" wing span and preferably with removable wings. So the question is : which way forwards. What fuel types and engine size would I be looking for and coupled to which airframe. I prefer sport flying if this helps, is this something that is viable .g

well Roy, it looks like you have surpassed yourself, the last build was 'awesome' but this looks stunning (is stunning better than awesome?) will have to try and get down the shop next weekend and look at it in the flesh. Wish I had the time to build something myself as your builds inspire me so much and have me glued with your dedication and craftsmanship. ps you were going to reveal the whereabouts of your club field to me last time we spoke, any chance mate..........Glyn

Thread: estes falcon
03/03/2014 22:03:54

Hi guys. I'm looking for some ideas, I have recently converted the Estes Falcon, to the uninitiated, a foam, jet winged F16 type thing, about 14" wing span ,chuck glider, basically a kids toy. I have fitted a couple of servos for the elevons. And a small pusher motor, I managed to keep the original c of g and managed to keep the weight reasonable and although it still has a reasonable glide path as soon as I pull on the up stick it reacts like a lawn dart, drops the nose and crashes. 2 questions, anyone know if. It's possible to set up elevons on this type of wing configuration or has anyone come across the Estes rc conversion, a Google does show someone flying one on the tube but there is no information of how. Will try and post some piccies ASAP.....G
