Thread: RCM&E Special Issue 2012
12/09/2012 02:16:49

BEB, that is a very relaxed approach, you know you are always in trouble, only the level varies. If im planning a full flying weekend, i phone the hairdresser to find out the appointment, log it in my phone.

Its totally safe to beep...she is in the hairdresser, having a wonderful time ( rather hit my thumb with a hammer) Now you get in first with "your hair looks great, have you had it done?' Hey presto, double points.

Now a couple of issues to watch for:

1 Phoning ahead, speak to the dumb jnr, the air head, as she/he will forget your name in a nano second, her hairdresser will mention it before she gets the second foot in the door.

2 If she steps in the door holding the relished RCM&E KEEP FOCUSED Eyes on the hair, If you falter, halt at the line is ok, but never mention the mag. All points safe and secure

Just this week i had my biggie! Possums playing silly buggers on the power lines outside my business brought the 11kv supply down on to the lv supply. We took the full force of it, switch board looked as if some one left a hand grenade in it, every thing electronic vaporised, the smell will be etched in my brain for life! Even the light fittings suffered a scorching. Cost? 5 zeros any way. and it will put me back some years.

But the good news, I had to test the new fax machine......I ordered the DB Vampire form Eddie and Judy!

God, I feel good !!

I had expo on the ailerons on my Great Planes OS 91 powered Little Tony (scale model of a 'hot' pylon racer) and on the maiden, when I moved the stick more than a little bit it rolled inverted unexpectedly very near the ground, only a few seconds after takeoff. My great skill (HoHo, totally luck) recovered it. I have avoided expo ever since.

Just a thought Mark, you didn't dial in negitive expo by mistake? Have seen it done before.

I liked the 1.3m version. I dont want to build the 1.5m one! Any chance of a CNC pack etc for the smaller one?

Wow, and there is a 60" one? wink (And I didn't start that one)

Started electrical apprentice in the 60's ended up as an electrical engineer, so as you can imagine i don't have any issues with it. No, a candle is not a watt. 1 amp at one 1 volt is 1 watt, the current being drawn by a motor is measured in amps. RE:10 amps per hour, perhaps the best way to describe this is in a measure of capacity, eg, batteries are measured in amp/hours. You may have a starter battery that is a 10 amp /hour. It can deliver 10 amps for one hour.


31/07/2012 12:25:59

And here's me thinking a current is what you find in a bun, a bulb grows in a garden, and an electric lamp lights your house? devil

Am almost changed over to XT 60 from deans, I have nearly 200 lipols! so its taking some time. I have lost two good aircraft (70"  to failed deans plugs. Use 6mm in the big stuff though (12s 8000mhr)

As Pete B has indicated, a large iron with lots of heat for a short time, I use a Weller temp controlled leadlighting iron.

Hi Ton

Very nice as always, you have been busy! Nice touch the two sizes too. Some thing other designers should pick up on eh. More than half of my builds are "blown up" from origonals. Even blew the Nijhuis Hurricane up to 70".

Graham and David as editors do understand the market and which subjects are popular....I think they made the decision on the way back from Nuremberg so I guess they had been doing a little research out there.

I think of next year, it's a toss-up between the runners up in 2011 and they were a DH98 or a Whirlwind...either way i think Barry may get his wish soon. Persistance maybe dose pay off

Did I mention that I was plugging for a Whirlwind?devil


Thread: What do you say to a friend who has just crashed his pride and joy ?
18/07/2012 23:16:11

I think in this hobby you have to accept that every flight is a risk, leave it at home in cotton wool if you want it to always look nice. I have lost planes to failed maidens, dumb thumbs, Shot down by others, and the worst, was when the trucks in the local Quarry decided to re tune their radios for their own "Private" frequency bang on mine! I lost 5 planes in 8 weeks to that, including my pride and joy, a 80" own design mosquito. I was upset be assured, but i didn't go and kick the cat, or spit the dummy. Get your head around it or take up stamp collecting.

Nice touch the retracts, would suggest counter rotating props. keep it light where you can though.
