Thread: Concorde, 10 years
05/10/2013 11:19:53

Hi CSB, I live near/work at RNAS Yeovilton and so have been to see 002 a few times. She certainly is a pretty old girl face 1

I think I'm going to enjoy these posts of yours.

Thread: Anyone near Glastonbury?
05/10/2013 11:05:52

Hi Jon, I'm in Ilchester so not far at all.

I fly at the Sedgemoor model flying club in Westonzoyland. We are a friendly bunch who are always happy to meet/help new members. If you fancy joining a club (the best way to learn in my opinion) then why not pop along. Sunday mornings from about 09:30 are usually the busiest/most popular time.

I'm fairly new myself (about 18 months) and I really enjoyed learning to fly on a buddy box (great for newbie confidence) and passed my 'A' test within about 6 months. I'm now whizzing around with my plan built Clean Sweep and my Fusion fun fly.

Thread: Tony Nijhuis' new Vulcan
23/09/2013 09:36:20

WOW!

I have been watching keenly since you first said you were designing Vulcans and I must say that it certainly doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to see the other two designs (really interested in the larger EDF one wink). There is nothing I want to build more (Except maybe a Fairchild A10.....)

I imagine you are going to have a major hit on your hands with these.

Hi John and welcome smiley.

There was a really interesting thread here on landing. Some really useful stuff from some very experienced guys (and me!).

Thread: What glue
28/07/2013 17:34:39

I'm pretty certain you need the zap foam safe for that. You have to use the foam safe 'kicker' too according to the bottle.

Thread: Landing is the hardest thing? !
22/07/2013 08:53:33

Jez,

As a relative novice myself, this is something I've been trying to work on recently. One mistake I was making was using the elevator too much. This tends to result in pitching the nose up/down too sharply on approach which is a bit un-nerving! I am now trying to have a longer, shallower descent using the throttle to control altitude and just keeping the wings level.

Admittidly, my touch and go's are still a bit 'bounce and go' but slowly they are improving.

Thread: BMFA Proficiency Scheme A & B Certs, which model did you use?
16/07/2013 21:28:37

I passed my 'A' last year with my TN Sky 40 trainer. Not yet thinking about my 'B' but I think my Clean Sweep would be idealsmiley

Thread: Changing from 4s to 5s setup
09/07/2013 21:17:34

Not sure if it's any use to you but I find this website really useful for getting an idea of what any given electric setup is going to give me. I can usually find something very similar if not exactly what i'm using and so far it's given me very accurate results when compared to the real thing with my watt meter. I have bought my last 3 electric setups based on the results I got from this tool.

I haven't noticed any need to cut grass on our tarmac ex-airfieldwink

Thread: Learning to fly
04/07/2013 09:29:25

I never fly with a neck strap or tray. Why is that a safety issue?

Really nice to see the video I had a similar experience with my club when I was first thinking about model flying.

Thread: Concorde or TSR2
01/07/2013 20:34:26

What sort of propusion are you thinking? I imagine an 8' TSR 2 would need a serious EDF setup!

Thread: Woodspring Wings 2013
30/06/2013 18:15:04

I'll be there on whichever day looks like the best weather smiley. Taking my 7 & 5 year olds. 3 guys from my club are doing a formation aerobatics display with their twins too. Should be good.

Thread: How many build projects (ARTF and trad') do you have running?
21/06/2013 17:02:37
