Thread: Ink Jet Printer
28/01/2021 11:22:37

On my Epson moderately priced printer scanner I can choose the print type required even down to photograph style but that is time consuming in the print

I have tried non Epson cartridges and its hit and miss if they work or not so just luck out for Epson bargain prices on the web

Thread: Extending leads - battery or ESC?
22/01/2021 20:10:19

I built a Depron Jet shape model with battery at front and motor at rear and needed to extend battery wires by 9" to get things working

I was of the opinion that battery power was straight voltage movement where as the ESC to motor is pulsating current and more likely to cause problems

Thread: Radiomaster TX16s Anyone tried one?
21/01/2021 11:43:42

Are you looking to use your old 35meg rx as the Radiomaster is 2.4 or am I reading things wrong??

Thread: If you ask ten different aeromodellers...
21/01/2021 11:38:46

So if I am the first to reply

I think the Hitec 311 servos should be okay for this lighter model

On the engine side maybe the Irvine but don't go mad with throttle I think the laser maybe to heavy and 61 too powerfull for this lighter model

Enjoy the build and flying I miss mine as the were in short supply when I needed a replacement

Thread: SKY Rc switch
15/01/2021 11:03:21

Pleased to see the thread may have helped some other ic flyers

My first electronic switch arrived and fitted in minutes, setting up battery lead so can be disconnected at end days flying

Role on covid restrictions and lets get back to flying

Thread: CAA Operator Identity
13/01/2021 11:26:10

Thanks for the response I was unsure if the model could be flown under my numbers as more than likely I will be on the transmitter for for setting up etc

Thread: SKY Rc switch
13/01/2021 11:08:49

So I have had delivery of three Hitec heavy duty switches my preferred option in the various makes and one SKY unit. Will be in the hanger later to see how they will fit and how the new switch on one model will work with cabling etc.

Many Thanks for all your responses and comments what a great site this is to get support in this lock down period

Thread: Hello from Newbie in Edinburgh

Thread: Panic! Damaged prop shaft threads - can't fully unscrew retaining nut. Help please!
12/01/2021 11:57:20

Maybe a trip to local garage or handyman who may have a nut splitter to hand

Thread: novice plan building
12/01/2021 11:30:17

You are going to be undated with options from a foamy to ARTF to full kit build

Foamy will get you into flying quickly and not take long to get flying them is hazardous as accidents will destroy them This will be electric

ARTF slightly longer build time can be electric or ic a little more robust and can be repaired

Full kit will take longer more complex more intricate and covering is not the simple and the choice is unlimited

Usually people reccomend a high wing trainer as first attempt more easier to fly and land

All the best

Thread: SKY Rc switch
11/01/2021 11:12:42

Thank you for the response I was wandering about power use when not in use so will set up the Meters to check

Have seen where failsafe is power on

11/01/2021 09:43:21

Being a longtime ic flyer and reading about faults that can occur with the on / off switches I have regularly changed mine over the years. Serching web for some new ones this year I came across this electronic unit.

So thought I would ask if anybody has used them ?? And any comments battery switch.jpg
