Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.
16/07/2018 21:54:26

This flew, a Yak3Mu. Flew it once before, didn't take a photo. the u/c broke and wouldn't go back down, so I bought a set of JP Aircraft Mechanic 120 size and fitted them. The Eflite ones that came out cannot be repaired, and Eflite dont make electric retracts anymore.

It did its 2nd flight and all is well. Now to fly it more. Bit of a handful, has a tip-stall to watch out for...

I find that increasing the plan by 33% works best. For example, I build a enlarged Wonder

What design / brand is this one ? I googled it and didnt find it.

Sig. American company.

Thread: The Mini WOT 4 thread
15/07/2018 11:41:58

Problem is that the Mini Wot 4 needs to fly fast, otherwise, the controls stop working. I don't think it is a very good model, very slow to respond to aileron, even with large throws, except at higher speeds, and no elevator control when landing,

The problem I think is the wing, it is too thin and loses lift easily. A redesigned wing with about 5mm more thickness would slow the model down somewhat.

I find that increasing the plan by 33% works best. For example, I build a enlarged Wonder from a .15 size to .60 sized, enlarged it to 33% resulted in the right size.

Thinking to enlarging a .15 size of this to 120 size. so would go for 33% again.

Will do it this winter, as the model flies so well and will be better, larger...

I'll be there. Doesn't clash with any other events. Also park my caravan in the same space. Have a new caravan, bigger and fit more models in it. smiley

Thread: Holding Your Nose
13/07/2018 19:15:49

I still do it. Its a test, fail to do that and your model stuffs in if the engine cuts on a climb out, especially a twin.

Best to do all the test, even on a petrol, don't do it and it could matter.

Don't get many, if any climb-out dead sticks. raising the nose will tell you if either the mixture is out, or there is a leak in the fuel system. You won't know there is if don't do it...cool

Thread: Hobbico Tactic Aircore series.

Looks like a "no", then. Probably the main reason why they folded, very poor marketing, so people never knew about it and wasn't in stock anywhere.

Shame, really...

Thread: Something that will bounce

You have to avoid the ground first then work upwards...

If you have trouble landing and taking off, reliably, then 3D is the last thing on your mind. Best to get the basics, then able to fly the plane where you want in any condition, wind, snow, etc then if you can do that without breaking models, then next is aero's.

Thread: Hobbico Tactic Aircore series.
10/07/2018 19:47:57

I came across this. Remember Hobbico in Weston Park Model Show a few years ago were introducing these, but they and the models were never seen again. With Hobbico gone, which is a shame, these models were a good idea.

I don't think the new part-owners, Horizon will do any more. But got them cheap, and have a Tactic radio, which binds to it.

The ME109 is nice, and quite big, too. Also a change from US and UK fighters. There were two Zeros, FW109, Miss America, a Spit and a high wing model, presumably, 4 sets in all...

Bought the PT-17 Stearman at Cosford. Flew it later on the Saturday night. Needs a heavy battery, as a 2200mah 3s is too light.

Also, these, bought for £40. Binds to Tactic set, which luckily I bought also cheap and using the defunct Hobbico Bind n' Fly model series...

Thread: Fed Up!

As this is a rant thread, as you might be aware, i can't stand football, everyone at work does, and they think i'm weird.

If there was a meter 0 to 10 for me, 10 being a football nut, the needle won't even twitch at zero. I was never good at it, at school, when it came on TV, my dad switched it off, so the spark for it was never there.

Just think, I could have been a football nut, being down the pub, never had taken up rc flying.

Just think...

Thread: The Seagull has landed

I've got the other colour scheme one, with a CRRC 26 petrol, which is perfect for it. Am looking for this colour scheme, but not seen one. Inwood had the same one as mine, thought it was this scheme, but he can get one, so might call him to order on the next shipment, if one doesn't turn up at a forth coming show.

Want to do it in a JCB scheme, where I now work and where I've seen one at a Ashborne scale meet a while back...

Will use the new logo, similar to this:

Next year, Hitec would probably be at the bottom, due to their announcement that no new Hitec radios will be made again, signalling the nail in the coffin for Hitec transmitters. The Auroa will still be used, but if you are not moving forwards, you are moving backwards...

3 new models from Weston Park, the first is another Wot 4, but gone mad and fitted a Saito 80 which I bought new from Teeside Swap meet a few weeks ago for £40. Engine is starting to run in now...

I suspect some insider trading has taken place here wink

No, the Wot had been on public sale for a while, about 2 hours later I saw it and snapped it up. No-one else did...

No, it's cash only. Not worth doing card payment for what it costs and it would only get used once a year.

Bring any unwanted items you don't want and turn them into cash - to buy something you want.
