|Thread: Chris Reid Foss-like Mignon|
Mignon 150 flies like a dream! Stable, no vices, handles will on the ground too!
Regret I do not have a source of kits. But here are photographs of my "Mignon 150" (so called cos it is 150% of original) - copied from RC&M plan and enlarged using Posterazor. AUW is just below 6lb with 5000mAh battery, ply fuselage, built up wing, covering Solarfilm (soon to be mourned!). Waiting on the weather now!

|Thread: Flying Dog|
I've tried numerous times over recent weeks - site is closed down, tried FB message, but no reply.
Perhaps Flying Dog just flew away!
Thank you, really kind of you to take the troube. Videos lokk really useful. Thank you again.
Only one wing shown, I printed off a 'mirror' in the hope of making it more straight forward!
Thanks Guys, this is the only instruction on the plan.
"IMPORTANT The correct wing washout is produced by fixing the lower sheeting first. The wing is placed on the building board with the lower surface in contact along the entire length in the proximity of the main spar The sub TE is jigged on tapered supports 3/8" at R1 3/16" at R17 1/8" at R28." (where R1 is root and R28 is tip)
Perhaps this indicates that the wings are indeed built upside down! But it certainly not clear!
Please can anyone help?
The plan instructions for wing washout say "jigged sub TE, 3/8" under root rib, tapering to 1/8" under tip rib". I am confused becasue I would expect more washout at the tip than the root?"
Please can anyone help?
Many thanks in anticipation.
|Thread: Loss of control|
Did you carry out range check and then not switch back to normal control?
|Thread: Hobby King Flight Stabiliser i86AP|
Many thanks for your comments guys. I will give it a test flight and report back!
Fitted mine and connected up, but there are only very small movements to servos in response to large movements to the airframe? Please can anyone advise? Checked voltages at the unit, also substituted ESC for 6v battery direct to Rx. Same result. HELP!
|Thread: Fokker Eindekker by David Boddington|
Thank you, looks really useful
Please can anyone help me out with the companion sheet to the 1982 RCM&E SCALE AIRCRAFT EXTRA 1982 plan - "See Plan pack No. 2849 (75p) for further rigging details."
I have the plan and would dearly like to see the above rigging details if someone can help?
|Thread: Algebra 100 CoG?|
I still have my rolled ply fuselage Algebra 100" and the original plans/drwgs - must date back circa 1990ish. The CofG on the drwg is 96mm from LE at the root. This is where mine is balanced and it still flies beautifully.
|Thread: Zulu ET|
The kv is the revs per volt. EG for a 3 cell (3S) lipo with approx o/c charged voltage of 11 volts and a motor rated at say 1600 kv the max revs would be 17,600 (11x1600) RPM.
Real test is with selected prop, matched ESC and a wattmeter.
|Thread: Noise levels Model and Engine selection|
Interesting thread but not a single reference to noise measuring meters/equipment or calibration of these.
I wonder any fliers or clubs with experience shed any light on "approved" meters or where these can be calibrated and against which standards?
|Thread: 2012 Vintage Mass Build - What are you building?|
Drake 2 from 1952 Ken Willard plan|
Almost completed - see here
|Thread: DX6i Recall|
I know of flyers who use exclusively the orange clones both with and without satellites and swear by them regarding range and reliability. I have used both orange and GC clones OK, all range test - as NigelH reports to up to, and sometimes beyond 50 paces. I wouldn't advocate trying to exceed the range that is recommended by the retailers, but I have no problems in that respect.

here is link to HK clones - I have used single RXs and one fitted with satellite, delivery usually about 5/6 days Also, clones available from Giant Cod here and delivery is next day!
post appeared - immediate!
TXs returned from HH in 3days - good service - but one of the culprits was returned as not requiring the firmware fix - still soak testing, and very apprehensive!
Rec'd back my TXs from HH - fast turn around - posted this already but it doesn't appear, also posted pm to mod but is not in my sent box???
