Thread: Broken servo arm screw
27/08/2019 21:20:22

Some 12 months ago I bought a second hand Seagull Harrier that someone had converted to electric and had fitted Corona midi servos. Unfortunately I found out that out of the five fitted in various areas they had all broken on the flange where the screws held them in place. Not sure if it was mishandling or a bit of UV making them brittle in this area

Thread: Acro Wot Alternative
27/08/2019 20:57:22

I lost my 6 year old ARTF Acro Wot a month ago and searched the internet but none available for last 12 month. My alternative would have been various Seagull brands ( Airtek Hobbies seem to have some stock ) last alternative was the Kyosho Calamato the one with better covering . I had numerous 46 two strokes available and finished up with an ARTF Wot 4 to replace my aging one and that must have been one of the latter ones available

Happy Searching

Thread: Possibly going all electric, which motors should I use?
25/08/2019 12:20:50

I have to agree with Nigel R. I get more fun out of a £19 gallon of Laser fuel than an equivilant lipo battery

It is horses for courses and we all have our own opinion

I do have an Easy Street and electric pylon racer both fun to fly but time restricted

Thread: Balsa skin on wing
16/08/2019 19:02:23

I once built a french model glider that needed curved ribs skinning and the tip was to get all set, glue up ribs cover with balsa and cover the balsa with something like RCME Magazines or other similar magazines that followed the curves perfectly weighing down the balsa

Thread: Single servo ailerons
16/08/2019 14:15:51

I am reading all the responces thank you all. Appreciate I did have a control set up slightly higher than should be without my usual expo set up for my flying routines.

And without going off on another tangent is more up than down a better set up with a single or two servo set up ?

I have over 20 plus years building and flying IC models and tamed them all but this one is not to my liking as yet

Thanks again for all your inputs

15/08/2019 07:26:47

Wow what have I done I was only asking if I was to mod my servo horn to give more up than down was that the correct way? As is said in other topics ask 6 modelers this question you get 8 options.

Thanks to all who have responded on my aileron question. At present I have found my original circular horn for futaba servos but have hirec servo fitted.

I am going to reset the settings back to plan recommendations 3/16 to 1/4 on see how we go. as said earlier some how I was at 5/16 with no expo to soften the sticks

14/08/2019 11:39:43

Just in case I did not make myself clear I think this kit was built some 8+years ago with a modeller who followed the plans. So it came with the single servo option and torque rods fitted I have a feeling with the finish it was covered in balsaloc and then some heavy duty covering.  My start point on expo is -30% and then I go up or down to suit the model characteristics and my style of flying

Happy days when I get this one trimmed out

Looking at the size of the airelons on the wing I think a mini servos may struggle under load I have two midi servos in the workshop that would do the job just need to check the output specifications

13/08/2019 19:12:40

So Alex was the nearest and John came second. After further bench checks I found that my Flash 8 TX triple rate switch was in the mid position and the exponential was set at zero instead of -35%. This had given me 5/16th deflection instead of the 1/4" recommended. Balance point within parameters

Thanks to all who took time to put ideas forward

Good Afternoon to all. Having aquired a kit built Acro Wot and fitting all engines servos etc and just the one for airleons I am finding when flying it is very twichy on airleons input have tweeked the servo settings and exponential etc but not resolving my problem. Some years ago I was shown how to get differential on the output by fitting a cut out circular disc to give more up than down. Am I going the right way is it more up than down ?? or the other way

Had a reply from Balsa Cabin some one had been on holiday
