|Thread: Green Air Designs EE Canberra|
|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: Friday free stuff|
I'm in please!
|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
|Thread: Flat work surface??|
|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 !
|Thread: Fokker DVII Colours|
There's a few to choose from here Link
|Thread: Free stuff on Friday|
Me too please!
|Thread: Durafly EDF Vampire|
|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!|
|Thread: Turbo Spinners ???|
|Puffin models usually have a variety in stock.|
|Thread: What are these Planes?|
|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: Patriot, Ratatat and Swamp Rat|
|Very smart! Classy colour scheme too.|
|Thread: Nostalgia aint what it used to be!|
LINK Here's an oldie with the ad that caused quite a stir as I recall
Sprengbok if I remember rightly - made quite an impression on a 16 year old lad at the time!!!

|Thread: Hobby King UK free collection|
|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|
|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!
|Thread: Habu 2|
Hi Andy, sounds very much like the fan needs balancing.
I've only just found out how to do this, but the result is quite remarkable!
You can do it with a phone, but I found it fairly straightforward to do just by feeling the vibration through the mount.
Good luck, Pete

|Thread: What is going on here then|
|Beat me to it Garbo!|
|It's a DIY buddy box of course! |
|Thread: Scam / Spam Warning - classified ads|
|I've just received a pm from the very same person!|
Beware folks they're out there.
|Thread: Hanger 9 Sopwith Camel (Pig) Land-Dings|
|Hi Peter. I haven't flown a camel, but from experience with DR1's and other tricky ground handling models, fixing the wheels to a common axle that is allowed to rotate most definitely tamed most of the beasties at the expense of limiting the ability to turn whilst taxing. Forms a fixed differential on effect. It's worth a try and a cheap fix if it works.|
