|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: 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.|
|Thread: Weathering oracover|
Here's a better one!
I've had good results just by wiping over with ipa (that's isopropyl alcohol, not pale ale!!) then brushing or spraying acrylics directly onto the film as required.

|Thread: Black Horse Fiesler Storch 30-35cc ARTF|
I saw one belonging to a fellow club member briefly on Sunday. Didn't have time to talk to him about it as I was just passing, but it looked extremely impressive on the ground and in the air.
I watched him take off (maiden flight) and fly a few circuits before the engine cut and it was most majestic, as was the subsequent dead-stick landing. I would imagine that the Storch is a very rewarding and drama-free model all round.
If I get the chance to talk to Mick I'll post more.
|Thread: How many lipo cells?|
Gaz, if you pm me I'll give you my phone number and talk you through it - it's fairly simple and very starightforward really!

|Thread: Weston UK jazz.|
EB, it's a long time ago but what do you need to know?
I was lucky enough to review the Jazz for another publication when it first appeared, many moons ago.
I flew it for several years and really must say that it was truly superb with the supplied TS46 engine and Weston mini-pipe, although I seem to recall an issue with the low speed needle on the motor, solved by replacing it with the then new OS46 FX - even better.
I've still got the airframe awaiting electric conversion at some point and fully expect the Jazz to live up to expectations in this configuration too!

|Thread: F3A pattern models|
|Does anyone know if Elation Models are still around? They did some great f3a kits in various sizes but I haven't seen any ads recently.|
|Thread: Warbird Replicas - Still trading?|
|I can second that! Still very much alive - spoke to Richard very recently, he was, as always extremely helpful.|
|Thread: Hobby King models thread|
|Does anyone have an address for the UK warehouse? |
|Thread: Thermik XL E 4m which motor|
|Sounds like the one!|
Hi Paul, looks as though you probably need a fairly hefty motor/gearbox combination in there as the quoted weight of the Thermik XL on the Soaring USA site is an eye-watering 116oz. What diameter is the nose at about 2" back? I was wondering if an outrunner could perhaps be shoe-horned in.
Anyway, here's a LINK that might be useful.

|I've had this a few times. Re-set the start up mode to normal and it normally cures it. |
|Thread: Galaxy Models, in administration|
THANK-YOU, GALAXY MODELS
I went along this morning. Lots of folks in the shop picking up quite extraordinary bargains but i couldn't help feeling that modelling has lost another pillar of its establishment.
I'm sure that once the bargainfest is over we can all offer our collective thanks to Gary, his family and all the staff from Galaxy Models for all of the years of friendship, advice and support for our much-loved hobby with all of the very best wishes for the future.
