So having looked at sticking my Dymo Label on the inside of my models it  is not going to be that simple. So I have opted to stick the labels on the outside my options is same place on all models ( **** *** **** )

I am of the opinion that the numbers should go inside your model to give you a bit more confidence that you/we took the CAA test, paid our fee and gained our numbers, so little chance of the numbers being seen by other eyes and taking advantage of our work to follow the CAA Guide lines

Thread: How many flyable aircraft do you have ?

Just found a Dymo label machine in garage from some time ago. Has with it some 7mm wide tapes that give me a 4mm high letters. I bet second hand shops, Ebay, Facebook and others get searched in depth

Thread: Need new Dehumidifier
01/11/2019 12:01:36

I have a unit that came from Screwfix some years ago around £100 mark have it on a timer for 5 hours day very little problem did have to strip down recently to tighten the compressor fixings and good clean on the water drain system after recent building works

(Fingers crossed now)

Thread: LIPO Battery Duration Query
31/10/2019 19:08:41

Bit of an update from this morning fitted various props and noted the following results

Measured 310 watts on an 11 x 5.5

295 watts on the recommended 10 x 7 Noticed on the box in mentions a 2700 MaH not on data sheet

275 watts on an 10 x 5 I had in the hanger

Took the Easy Street with 10 x 5 on to strip this afternoon ( Along with an IC ) and did some more testing

I found take off different in that it needed a longer run to get lift, once in the sky all was okay but was a little docile, timer buzzing at 4.5 mins and it was still flying with power and so round for a landing. This time I had to ensure I had low throttle on to keep the nose up. Capacity check when taking out a very cool battery showed 45%. Second similar battery fitted and away we go, take off a little better and flight okay and full power again for 4.5 mins, landing was same as above. Battery capacity still another 45% and cool. Passing model shop tomorrow so will pick up a 10 x 6 and see how we go. May put a 2700 battery on the Xmas wanted list

Happy Flying to all

Thread: NEW POLL - do you use a throttle kill switch?

I like the Hitec Tx option which is push button more than a switch.

Just done a quick check tonight before I start with watt meter tomorrow

The motor is a Ripmax Quantum 25 S ( 1200kV rated ) which advise a 10 x 7 and equivalant to a `25 ic on 3 s

it advise a 9 x 7.5 on 4 S. Maybe the 10 x 7 is a little course and have to see what props I have in the hanger

I am a predominantly an IC flyer and can have long stint in the sky as our patch is usually quiet when I can get there in mid week but busy on weekends, I have a Sarik Tracer E on a 1700mAh and easily get 8 mins which is enough.

Appreciate the Easy Street 2 is a heavier model but I can see at 4.5 mins it time to get it down and was only looking to see what others may get on 2200 or 2900 capacity batteries

29/10/2019 12:34:07

Thanks for replys Wattmeter was used when first set up and all as should be. Will get watt meter out again and go for different props

Thread: speed 400 x 3!
29/10/2019 12:31:38

Did I read somewhere that brushed motors and lipo batterys not that good 7.4 V 2 cell too low 11.9V 3 cell bit to much and brushgear wears out quickly ??

Thread: LIPO Battery Duration Query

One for the Electric Flyers. I have an Easy Street with recommended Quantum motor and fly on three new 3S 2200 batteries, but seem to be low on duration ( 5 mins ) and looking at two options

Do I upgrade to a 3 cell 2900 or 4 cell 2200 ?? both around the same price

Appreciate the 4 cell will increase speed but then I can throttle back

Thread: NEW POLL - do you use a throttle kill switch?
26/10/2019 09:34:41

Definitely when bending down to pick up the model to remove battery and 90% chance catching throttle stick better safe than sorry

I am still on with the build and having a little problem with the rear wings and tips. Have got some enquiries out and over the weekend having put it to one side I think I have resolved my issue along with some help from a previous builder
