Thread: Mid life crisis prevention required

Welcome. Luckily I never was into girls, or relationships, so kept modeling and accrued over 600 airframes, engines and the like. Must be weird having to start from scratch, though it's changed so much and a good choice on what to do.

Maybe, also go to the shows in the summer and Swap meets, which is another aspect of the hobby.

Thread: Hobbyking site development.

Nothing wrong with another outlet. They sell stuff that Hobby shops don't sell, such as 120 size twist n' turn retracts (bought 3 sets) and many aircraft.

Even the UK shops and distributors have nothing new on the shelves, I'm being going into model shops with seeing something to buy, but leaving with a few small bits, because there is nothing to "float my boat".

The website of HK does work, but is a bit slow, though at least it does work.

I remember looking at the plan and substituting the foamboard for balsa instead. It has lasted well, though foam board probably wouldn't have, so good call there.

Probably electric would be easier on this model. What about using edf's for the 4 burning then turn them off after take off?

Thread: 7 Day challenge Nigel Hawes 30" Tucano...............

I built one and Chris did as well. Flies well and very floaty, is hard to just bring it in, as it will float on by.

Thread: Hitec Optic 6 2.4
19/01/2020 12:43:46

Have 2 Aurora 9's and another Hitec set, a Flash Eclipse 7, which was originally on 35mhz, but has the 2.4 Spektra module (not Spektrum) in it.

The Aurora 9 was a doddle! I had an Optic 6 and hated it!

Thread: London Model Engineering Exhibition Alexandra Palace

I used to go to the Sandown version (not the model show), the engineering one, and its was solely aimed at engineering not rc models, though one or two traders used to do it.

Thread: Do you love some of your engines so much you don't fly them?
17/01/2020 15:08:44

I have over a thousand engines so far, mostly the 40 ish sized two strokes.

15/01/2020 17:49:12

I love my engines, even the standard .40. This engine I bought, not used yet, but it's nice to keep, although have 3 other mk1 60's but not the machined head like this one.

Thread: Which engine ?
13/01/2020 17:39:17

What about a Saito 60 twin...

12/01/2020 11:01:16

I have several Cubs, the Clipped wing 85 inch version also has a 160 twin up front. This model I still got and is now 20 years old. Flew it recently at a scale fly-in.

Thread: Seagull Challenger ARTF Fault
12/01/2020 10:58:42

I would just leave it, and won't make a difference anyway as it's more than strong enough. Looks like a goof up at the factory.

Thread: When to Maiden your first new build?

Number 2 generally. I have often maddened in the past without finishing and fitting the cowl.

Which could be a disaster. What happens is this, you balance the model with the cowl in place and remove it for a test flight and the model is now tail heavy(and crashes), or at least difficult too fly. On a warbird, the cowl fitted weighs quite a bit and even then the model was little tail heavy with it on, take the cowl off...?

11/01/2020 17:49:36

If you need to ask the question, then I don't think you are ready to fly it yet. Sorry not being nasty at all just wondering how many test flights and models you've built in the past.

Best to get someone else to go over it and if unsure then maybe get them to test fly it - as long as they are proficient as well and a known decent flyer.

Wonder if he was/is a member of the Doncaster Model Flying Club in Bentley...?

Thread: Selling vintage kits question
11/01/2020 17:36:40

We run a Modellers' Swap meet in June, July at some shows. Most stuff sells and if you are willing to wait until then (though you said you did money asap.)

There are club swapmeets now on, one next weekend. Worth a try, know what price you would like to sell them for, and expect a slight haggle in price, though some vintage kits either sell well, or don't sell at all, depending on who the other punters are.

Ebay is probably the best, anyway, as many people are collectors, where at Swapmeets, many (including me!) want a bargain for as much least as possible outlay.

Just remembered, Ali Machinchy of Als Hobbies in Milton Keynes is an avid collector - well known for his range of vintage kits and might be interested in any kits.

Give them a call and ask to speak to Ali Senior referring to your quest.
