Thread: plans for a 90mm edf unit
27/12/2012 08:16:16
Hi Ben, I've got a plan for a TSR2 about somewhere for an ic fan that I intend to convert to edf at some point, I was intending to use a 90mm fan.
I'll dig it out and pass on the details if you like?
Cheers, Pete

Martyn and Ady, thanks for the info. I'll leave contacting Mike until after the Christmas rush when things have calmed down for him a little!

The idea of leaving it to the builder to work out the breakdown of the model seems a sound one, especially given the lump that a 6 ft Canberra is! I think that outer panel and rear fuselage removal will be the way to go, keeping all of the power system intact.

I'll post on the forum when I get going!

Cheers, Pete

Can anyone shed some light on my small predicament?

I'm keen to place an order for GAD's latest edf EE Canberra (71" no less!) but need to check that it breaks down into sensible bit for transport.

I've tried emailing and phoning but have had no response for 10 days; is this normal for GAD?

Any opinions gratefully recieved.

Cheers, Pete

Has anyone seen the new GAD EE Canberra for 2 x 70mm EDF?
There's a few details on the website and a compilation of pictures of the parts and CAD generated 3d views but none of the completed model.
Should be great tbough at that size !

Thread: Flat work surface??
20/10/2012 20:34:05
Hi Chuck. I use a offcut of 38mm kitchen worktop with 10 mm fibreboard (as used under laminate floors) glued to the underside to take pins. This leaves the top surface as a flat, hard surface to work on.
Makes a fantastic multi purpose building board for very little outlay.
The only disadvantage is the weight !

I used medium cyano (foam friendly as happens but not necessary, just what o had in) with kicker and thin cyano. Works a treat and quick too!

Puffin models usually have a variety in stock.

I'll go for a Gangster too for the first and take a shot at a Junior 60 variant for the second model.
I've got to say that I'm with Alan on the condition though.

Thread: Hobby King UK free collection
13/09/2012 19:33:59
Without wishing to lead another HK thread well off track, if the box that the goods are collected in appears to be "...smashed to hell... " I would suggest that they aren't signed for and perhaps another might be selected from the warehouse.
The warehouse staff are not unreasonable people and would not, presumably, select damaged goods for dispatch in the first place.
In many years of experience, transit damage has always occurred just there - in transit!

Just my two penneth worth

I can vouch for the efficiently of the pickup service. Picked an order up yesterday from the warehouse - works a treat!
Don't forget your order number and some ID.
Thread: 9g servo

I've just popped 3 Towerpro MG90 balanced serves into my EDF vampire and they seem superb. At 14 g they are heavier than you were after but the same size as 9 g serves with 2.5 kg/cm torque!
Got mine from Giant Shark
Thread: Galaxy Aerojet kit
05/09/2012 18:47:13
Alas, poor Galaxy!
I never did get around to building an Aerojet, but saw one flown years who with the original brushed/nicad setup. It was very impressive at the time and would undoubtedly be even better.
Go for it!
