Thread: M6? Not If I Can Help It......

Posted by Percy Verance on 23/05/2019 21:11:21:

I think it's called a traffic jam Paul....... Very popular in Summer, especially Bank Holidays.

No, not really, its all the time. was driving back at 2am in the morning and got stuck for an hour. Also, it;s worse, as night works have you leaving at Jct 5 to drive though the city to rejoin at jct 6

The best bit of the M6 is Jct 8. Spend many a happy time there, just sitting there watching the hours pass on the clock when in "car park Mode"....

Seen this, felt sick. Although not model aircraft, still the same time and effort had gone into the displays.

Years of work ruined.sad

Thread: Peculiar petrol engine idle

That was the symptoms i was getting, no fuel, then a full load swamping it and making it wet.

Cured by the above mods. Extend the pipe via fuel tube into the fuselage.

Thread: Glow Sticks
12/05/2019 10:53:34

I don't use lead glow clips as they can get caught in the plug and not ideal for quick starts at a show or fly in. Carry around 6 at a fly in, but rotate them, however use the Lipo one which last a long time.

Pity I can't do this one, clashes with Teeside, with Falcon, which I'm helping.sad

Thread: Old O.S FS 1.20 cam timing
10/05/2019 15:35:02

the soild eng goes into the far end and the timing will be at 2:30 when the piston is TDC. Align the mark on the prop driver and set at that. Will be ok. turn the engine over and check before starting.

Thread: Spektrum Radio repairs ?
08/05/2019 20:25:40

I had a corrupted DX6 from a club member I sent to Logic RC (bought from SWM in 2015)

Just saying that seems Spektrum repairs are ok again, and thanks to Logic RC for fixing the fault and sending it back FOC. Trust in Spektrum service agents have been improved after the problems last year and before then,

I'm thinking of having my DX18QQ service, as it's a few years old and worth having it done. Will send it to Logic at the end of the year, as I reckon the models will be wiped, although got backup, just not looking forward to rebinding 150 plus models on that tx!!!

Maybe get the new IX12 at Weston Park...?

Thread: Problem with a Spektrum AR 620 receiver
08/05/2019 19:14:07

I bought 3 of the FRsky rx's from a swap meet, new, but were set to International mode, and wouldn't bind with my Taranis, After flashing to EU, they still didn't work, and found out where i was trying to bind it, too much interference, and did it somewhere else - success.

Same for a Optima 6 Hitec rx, it would bind,but not bind fully, the voltage telemetry kept dropping out as did the signal, sending all the servos jittering. Again took it away from room and ok.Think it could be the server in the next room, the Wifi extender and router playing around with the signals - after all they all use the 2.4 bandwidth.

Thread: Priory models Reflection Biplane
07/05/2019 21:56:50

Yes, using the Bakalite wing retainers. I've got the instructions. It is.89mm back from Leading edge. Not sure if that's the top wing(more likely it is), but , hold it upside down and normally its a third from the leading edge on the bottom wings.

As it's not finished yet, it'll be when it is. Normally the cofg usually is right, with a normal engine, battery, etc not going to far off.

07/05/2019 21:19:07

It's 51 inch wingspan. Using 4 ailerons, though using two servos, both in the middle of the wing.

Just need to cover the wings and fit the struts and control links. Not sure on the final scheme, apart from red, but going to add blue and white to the wings - same colour as the spinner and painted cabine struts.

An old thread, but building one now. As its a 90's model, using on of my many Mutunuc 61 engines. This was box-less so needs a home...

wet today, so put light in the pss hawk and roundals. its got no intakes and if i like psss, but so far its either been wet, wrong wind or been ic flying.

give it a go, the reason why I gave up gliders in the first place. Got the Cloud but seems its always against it.

Thread: Warning X8R RX - do not use with CDI on IC powered 'planes
06/05/2019 09:55:01

Another point, I use one of these on all petrol models, so making sure the power is isolated from the rx. also gives you the option of shutting the engine down, should the servo fail.

Were you using one of these on the Sbach? Be interesting to know if the opto switch did or did not make a difference in this case...
