Thread: OS 25 FSR- Equivalent
15/01/2019 18:57:37

I have an Enya 25SS and 30. Very powerful motors. Thing is , go to the up coming swapmeets and there are usually loads of .25 size engines going for nothing. Take your pick..

13/01/2019 14:57:41

There is a 25AX. The older FX series were good, I bought one new in box last year for £5!

Thread: Depth placement
13/01/2019 14:38:39

I have no trouble at all, having perfect eyesight. I do bomb drops and can get they in the middle of the strip.

Also, practice makes perfect. One chap at our club flew his Extrawot into a tree last year, I did remind him that he was behind the tree and going to fly into it - and he did!

Thread: Nexus Modelling Supplies
12/01/2019 13:27:49

I had a mild heart attack when this thread came up, saying it's for sale and website down, etc...

Then saw the date, and it was the original sale that Paul took over the original company for.


Nexus is one of my hang-outs at the shows, and spent lots of money in there in the past.. you know.
As, said, above, anything that develops a natural fault, in the normal time-line, they'll sort out with. I have a problem with my Texan front retract that keeps part-retracting, so that's the next port-of-call ....

Thread: HiTec Compatible Receivers
08/01/2019 19:46:19

I have a few of them, they are called, Hitec Red, Ikonic. Seem to work well, and less than a tenner each,in fact bought 2 of them new at a show for £5 still new, and one from SWM for £10.

Only thing is that they are not telemetry , but if you don't want it, then ok. Still I'm only using it on smaller models, anyway.

God loves a tryer.....

A prime example of exactly why I leave ebay well alone.......

There's some good deals if you are prepared to look, I recently picked up a MPX DR12 pro Rx for a good price and also had some electrical paste delivered from China (for a £1) to repair a component on a circuit board that was too delicate to solder.

Agreed. Percy, you seem to have your own opinion, but there are good as well as bad on ebay, just use common sense. I have bought a 2 caravans, a car, parts for both, models, hifi, clothes etc and only had one issue, and that wasn't a problem - was a fake Micro SD card, which the vendor refunded with no problem...

Also, as in this post is a source of humor and the day-dreamers out there, but you get that as well in Swap-meets, private sales and the classifieds same.

Last swapmeet, there was a Spektrum receiver for sale, at Retford, a AR6200 without it's sat. He wanted £40 no offers. I said you can get a new, with a sat on DSM-X for £10 more, but he said it was collectable, as it was on DSM2...and not made anymore.

Oh, dear.

Thread: Delightful little kits for sale on ebay.
04/01/2019 14:59:31

Seen these on ebay. don't know who the person is, but there are a few selection of models, around the £20. Cheap, quick to build and ideal project for a first build or something to do.

I'm guessing, they are from FMK / 5 Star Adhesives, as they were from Liverpool and have a company in Bulgaria.


An example of one of them:

Thread: World Models Pilatus Porter P6
04/01/2019 14:40:38

I was tempted buy it, but even the kit hasn't got flaps, but of a damp squab by not having a STOL aircraft without STOL features, silly, really. Although it won't be too difficult on the kit version to modify it to flaps, but why should you? Lazy-ness on the part of the manufacturer?

It is quite a heavy model, although slows down, it seems to fly ok in our windy weather. MIne has got 3 batteries in, as it's using a Dual redundancy system and metal gear digital servos (HS5645MG)

Edited By Paul Marsh on 31/12/2018 12:22:42

yikes! i would use standard servos and a single 4.8v nimh. Why the added beef? Seems seriously overkill for a cub

I always use a dual battery set up now to protect against a cell going down after loosing a nearly new Flair Leo a few years ago.. I hear doubters say "that dual battery is not needed blah blah blah " perhaps not in a small model with small investment in time and money but to see a nice larger model go in and be helpless is a bit annoying to say the least. I always fit dual batteries with diodes to prevent drain and dual switches. A small price to pay for a bit of peace of mind . Ordinary servos will be fine on a cub type model but it has the capacity to carry dual batteries so why Not fit them?


Standard servos: Maybe;

4.8v battery: No, No,No, deffo a big huge No NOoooooo! thumbs down

Dual Battery: Why not, as Engine Doctor said. The model is only worth at it's weakest link. A cheap 4.8v battery is all that is holding the model together with no headroom, especially on a 2.4 Ghz system...

Must've found it buried and dug it up as it's worth more if it's been in the ground. Suppose it's not worth taking a picture elsewhere, not in the dirt, as there is more dirt on the engine than on the ground!!!

I had a 15cc petrol - was way underpowered, but put a 20cc petrol and now perfect.

As for glow, a 100 will be great, not sure Laser do a 120, but they do a 100 and would sound better than a 2 stroke, anyway. Just Petrol is cheaper to run, though Lasers are happy with straight fuel...

Thread: New year

I've only got one airframe to fix this year - luckily the only incident when I snapped the fin off my Mini Frantic. Just need to recover the fuselage - the wing was undamaged.

Just started another build. Two kits this winter. Be doing this on NYE/NYD...

This thread is a bit quiet for this time of year - should be loads of builds building. Well just finished the Crescent Bullt of PB Models. OS 46AX and Hitec Digital servos. Got a few models done, but poor light means outside.

I have the garden hose at the back door, which could be deployed in seconds if need be, just need to turn the inside stop cock if its winter, but can be unwound and will reach anywhere around my property. It's used mainly for washing the car.
