|Thread: Hitec Radio Receiver Will not Bind|
If memory serves me right Hitec did a 2.4 conversion module that fitted in place of the 35 Meg module the module had the bind switches in it

This will confirm which system you have 2.4 or 35 Meg to match the receiver
|Thread: Bearing Supplier|
Hi Braddock I recently used the above company and took the option to try a named bearing supply more than their basic range used last time and was dramatically amazed how much quieter the motor was over the power range
|Thread: OS Irvine 46 query|
Hi Braddock I received an e mail from Sussex models as said and ready to phone when I got notification of message from member out of blue. A forum member had a brand new OS46AX11 at a price I could not turn down. When we spoke later on the phone this member remembered me from over 25 years ago when I used to race 1/8th scale IC cars. We were able to meet up locally as he was travelling south near to my location and had a good chin wag about the old days. The engine was fitted within the hour of getting home and test fired what a silent tick over it had, manged to get to my local club Saturday afternoon and usual testing and into the air only using half throttle appart from a little extra at take off. Any body need any spares for an OS Irvine 46 pm me
Thanks to all for the tips for removal of stubborn rod but pleased to say it's out. It turns out a little caster on the gudgeon pin stopped it sliding across easily, so phone call and card to hand next step
Hi Braddock had E Mail from Sussex models around 1630 to say all parts are made to order ?? had a second e mail at 1723 advising price and part numbers and 2/3 days delivery ??? . Will make a phone call tomorrow to see which is correct. Really struggling with this con rod at any position
Hi Percy. It's the OS version Irvine but will give the a call anyway.
It's awhile since stripping an engine and I am at the stage trying to get the conrod of the crank pin ( the liner is out ) where the best place for the crank pin to get the rod off top,bottom middle ????
Thanks for that awaiting reply via contact page
What a great forum this is with help,advise and been there . Just taken the head off and found the culprit delamination of chrome near exhaust port. Well that's a right off now quick Google for new piston liner comes in at 75 pounds if available will have to do some more searching unless like OS will an ASP set up match ??
Can confirm it's not the front bearing area and running right way. I have in my mind the piston liner worn and getting too much back pressure in chamber ?? Cause spitting out of carb
I have one of the above 2strokes that has given impeccable service from new and replaced the bearings once. It is now developing a minor problem in that after a long flight time over 6 mins or so when I get it back down it looks like it's spitting fuel out of the carb all over the head and plug . Any

|Thread: looking for advice on water based Silver paint|
Hi Julian Not sure if the silver paint will have any effect on your radio system I have read metallic coverings have effect on radio systems. Better do a longer range checks than advised just my thoughs
|Thread: Is this too powerful?|

|Thread: Deafness needs light, not buzzer!|
Would it be worth a call to Mike Ridley workshop for advise or even a mod ?? Seen picturesure on web pages on what he has done for others
|Thread: Where's all the stock?|
A little of topic re bits and bobs more than kits I find it frustrating that yes you can find single items needed and then the shops want to sell packs of 10 at a price a bit over the top
|Thread: Prostate Cancer|
I appreciate this is off the original topic but prudent in the recent post by Barry. I too have been1\8th car racing and airplanes for last 20 yearsy and for10 before that. I had on my right wrist a small red scally growth been there for 10 years or so but in February this year it started to grow and become scaled over, visit to my doctor's and photos taken and put on the 2 week cancer list. A visit to local hospital in 2 weeks and advised could be keratosis and need to come back for an injection and a scrape with electric wire to send of for analysis. Due to other commitments it was 4 weeks before I could attend. At time of first visit it was 10mm in diam 4 weeks later it was 20mm diam and 3 mm tall. When the clinical specialist saw this in the theatre she immediately said to nurse phone reception and tell them we will be running late, some 45 mins later it had been removed and left with a 30mm open wound. Some 6 weeks later the results arrived to confirm it was a skin cancer and confirmed that the part removed had clear skin around the edges. So I would advise all readers to certainly take care with exposed skin when flying and take extra care with this sunshine.
