Thread: Spektrum Receiver Plugs and Sockets
02/07/2020 16:59:14

I've found the Futaba 617's sockets are very loose - too loose for comfort and just to be safe, added heat glue, especially to the switch socket.
Prefer tight, to loose, but as said, Spektrum are very tight, and found that some servos plugs are little thicker than others and when connecting a few up, the rx either cracks or gets deformed.

A 25LA is going in, as it was spare and need a light engine on front, though as usual for this type of model, the battery goes in the tail.

I saw that and wondered, well a 727 and 737 are only one digit away. (and one engine difference,,,)

Thread: 20kg
30/06/2020 09:59:18

20kg is quite a large model. The Sbach I flew last week is less than 10kg, though even 120cc aerobats should keep below 20kg ok. Warbids might not be.

I bought a Flair Puppateer at a swap meet for £110, with OS 52 FS engine, just needed rx and battery.

Thread: Does anyone remember...
28/06/2020 11:56:14

I remember Graham's Hobby World in Stoke. Used to go there either on train, or bike it there. was 16 miles from home.

Bought my first model, a Yamamoto from him.

Saw the Banjo 2, not had a "Disco" model before. would be handy to keep to distract terrorists...

Think I'll put a IC engine in mine. Do have quite a few motors, but as the review model was electric, why not IC it?

Probably thinking of a .25 would be sufficient. I thought a .15, but is quite a draggy airframe and wide fuselage.

2 new planes, a Seagull Superstar with DLE 30cc and next door found this Edge 540 and gave it to me. Looks like it was an Amazon thing. Very heavy, but all works and worth it for bits.

When you take off at full power and the plane then goes behind you.

Thread: Ben Buckle Majestic Major help
24/06/2020 22:31:28

The model is not designed to fly fast, and overspeed would cause a pitch up. The flat bottomed wing will cause that, and even on full power, the old OS60fs will cause a slight pitch up.

Don't forget, these models were originally flown on tiny, engines, sparkies with little power, a .60 had the power of a .25 and it would fly on a modern .25 if need be.

I have one with a Mk1 OS 60FS. More than enough power. A modern .91 would pull it vertical and hold it there as well as go like a rocket!

Thread: Mini Cat by H Gilks
24/06/2020 08:57:42

I've flown mine a few times, and goes really well. Even the OS 10FP will fly it in half power, but best I found to use 16% as it takes off in a few feet.

Plans are in to built another Cat .10 and the Cat .25.

Going to put this in a OS10 FP stunt. Found it, and might be fun, as a engine of this size only needs full power, anyway. Saves weight of one servo. Always can put the other carb OS 10 later on...


Thread: How are you buying your modeling stuff in 2020
22/06/2020 09:34:43

I've bought 2 kits recently from UK, Though the model shop is open (SWM) only counter service, so at least can get bits, but browsing at the moment is not possible, which makes going less enthusiastic.
