Thread: Avicraft Panic
09/11/2019 18:23:48

I have a Panic, built a few years ago. OS 61SF shown here, but has a OS 65LA in it now. swapped the engine, for no reason, but the LA pulls it vertical, still...

Thread: Autumn is been flying ?

I reckon that's it, our field is water logged, its raining every day, no chance of even driving on now. So doing more gym and fitness work, as at least you can run every day and do cardio/weights in any weather...

Thread: Good news thread.

My dad has an electronic business, he repaired the faulty caravan charger and the boiler remote unit for me recently. He can do you repairs as well. If anyone's interested pm me.

only flown once since July, the worse weather I can imagine. Our field will be under water and only accessable by 4x4 now.

I built one many years ago, and still have it. OS 40FS power.

Thread: Where are the 50cc engines?
04/11/2019 19:10:05

Yes it was.

04/11/2019 18:37:43

Plenty of engines if you look. as for 50cc less so, but DLE, etc make 50cc, infact there are more choice of 50cc engines than 8cc engines, though I bought a Roto 35 yesterday and 10 40-46 size engines for £5 each...



Thread: Acrowot XL safety issue

Good god!!! I emailed them two years ago regarding sub standard fittings including this same issue. And I’m probably not the only one judging by the comments above!

Probably the older kits were sorted, but fast forward two years, and a new order from Ripmax to the supplier, the (supplier) thought they they could get away with it and probably forgot about it by now and get rid of all the old clevises that were held in the first place.

28/10/2019 18:49:00

I've had this before with all the 3mm rods with the Wot 4 XL, Extreme, the Wots Wot and Acro Wot XL's. I don't why they supply this rubbish in the kit. I threw mine all away and bought proper branded stuff. Doesn't bear thinking about if one let go...disgust

On an end note: When I bought the Wot 4 Extreme, and as described above, not only the threads pulled out, the pin came out... I phoned Ripmax up and they sent a new set, but still as it's a large model and with an expensive petrol flat twin up front, went and bought known brand items.

Also the fuel tanks with all the Ripmax Chris Foss models have all failed. Pity brassed off, the latest one, where the bung had shrunk, filling the fuselage with fuel on my Wots Wot pro  - ruining it. From now on I will:

  • Bin all clevises;
  • Use Du-Bro type horns;
  • Use Dual Elevator servos on the "XL" range (not use the forked push-rod);
  • not use the supplied tanks and use known reliable items.

I would recommend still to keep it a "Scale Fly-in" so it doesn't get confused with a normal fly -in. There are so many scale models out there - and it is nice to see them more instead of just wall-to-wall 3d models, which is still ok, but not all the time...

Thread: NEW POLL - do you use a throttle kill switch?
26/10/2019 16:30:07

I do, have a engine cut on IC models and more importantly Cut on electric models.

Thread: Ashbourne 2019
24/10/2019 18:49:25

I went, didn't have food, but had tea, not very keen on Oatcakes(probably as I wasn't from S-O-T, not brought up on them, anyway, hopefully that should be known by now. Thing is I don't like Cheese, Mushrooms, Bacon, Oatcakes, and don't have bread, oh, dear, I'm a fussy so-and-so aren't I..?smiley

so I took my own food, I reckon to people who like oatcakes they gave the thumbs up, but for some reason I can't stand the things.

Great day, got a few flights in, but as I said, I felt rusty, not confident at all, though the cross wind didn't help.

look forward to the next one.

Thread: Safety tip when buying from places like ebay & Bangood

Also, note if you are using a non-uk certified device and it catches fire and burns your house down, your insurance could be invalidated. It just gives them a legitimate excuse to not pay you. Added to that the dangers of electrocution and danger to life.

I was an electrician, still am and worked on LV Switch panels for 17 year and with a 4000A device, it makes you respect electricity..

Das Boot is also there, Sounds great on a multi channel home cinema system, as you can hear everything, for example after the call to dive and you can hear the water dripping on the hot diesels , fizzing away on the left and right rear speakers. that realistic, you can almost feel what it's like to be depth charged. Scary.
