|Thread: Keep away from hobbyking NTM prop drive motors|
I read somewhere that the E-Power motors at Giant Shark are actually unbranded E-Max ones. No idea if that's true but the ones I've had have been cheap as chips and worked brilliantly. Definately recomended. I must admit, I've not bought from H K yet.
|Thread: servo choice|
I've found Hitec HS325HB servos to be really reliable in a number of models and they're only about a tender too.
|Thread: Friday free stuff|
Happy days, didn't realise I'd won until my servo arrived in the post today.
Thank you very much
I'd love some free stuff
|Thread: WolstonFlyer's Tucano|
Don't know if you've seen this Motor/Prop calculator but it's very good. The figures it gave me are almost identical to those I measured with my watt meter. Means you can 'test' different prop sizes for a given motor/lipo combo before actually having to buy them
|Thread: New Poll - what first got you started in aeromodelling?|
For the last 17 years I've worked on helicopters and never really had any 'interest' in aircraft. About 18 months ago I moved into a desk job and soon felt the need to do something more practical. I saw a model flying display and thought 'I could build one of those'. I built a TN Sky 40 trainer last winter. Joined a local club in about April. Passed my A in July and am nearing completion of a Clean Sweep . I've got a list of 'must build' models as long as my arm and am enjoying flying too.
|Thread: Phoenix Online Session|
|For the phoenix sim to work you need their adaptor cable plugged into your computer. It won't work with the reality craft controller. The good news is that updates are free for life so you can buy an old version off eBay and it'll update to the latest automatically.|
|Thread: Flying today?|
Got in a few good hours in the beautiful Somerset November sun, including my first ever IC flights. Good times
|Thread: 2 or 4 stroke|
Finally got a chance to fly the hog today. It was great! Maybe a bit overpowered ( flies great at 1/3 throttle!) but certainly nice to have more than a five minute flight. And no hour long wait between not a huge fan of the oil all over the model afterwards but I suppose nothing's perfect.
once again, cheers for all of the great advice
I love it Really hope you can get that published. Nearly finished my clean sweep so I could do with something else to get stuck into. Of course, the upcoming Tony Nijhuis Vulcan will keep me going for a while......
|Thread: Building boards|
I bought a sundeala board. It's what notice boards are made of, Designed for drawing pins etc. You can get it from places that sell model trains. I think they use it to pin their tracks to?
|Thread: 2 or 4 stroke|
Well, after digesting all of the great advice given, I went and bought an SC .61 2 stroke. Got an Astro Hog off ebay to put it in too Can't wait to give it a go now. Once again, cheers.
|Thread: Tucano Signing Up Thread|
Looks fun, why not
|Thread: 2 or 4 stroke|
Once again, cheers for all the advice. They way the weather is I can't see the club being an option today.
I have looked at Just Engines and they seem really good. Anyone have any experience of their JEN range? They seem very reasonably priced and I like the black/purple too
Cheers for all the responses I'll be back up at the field in the morning and will have a chat with the guys there too.
I'm leaning towards an Evolution models Fusion or maybe an Enigma bipe. Sounds like a good 2 stroke might suit better......
I definately wont be ditching electric altogether, especially as my Clean Sweep is nearly finished Maybe I should just get a few more batteries.
Although, If they look as good as that Saito C.S. I may go 4 stroke lol.

Cheers Greybeard. I've noticed the noise is less with a 4, and also nicer I think. They do seem a fair bit more expensive though.
Are there any differences, say with setup and operation?
i am usually an electric only flyer but I'm getting really frustrated by lipo charge vs flight time. The ic guys in the club get 3 or 4 flights to each of mine and longer duration too! I am very seriously considering getting something ic and am wondering about the pros and cons of 2/4 stroke motors. If I can get my head round that ill only have to worry about which plane.......
|Thread: Giant Shark|
I'm just about to order some covering for my Clean Sweep build so I guess I'll find out
Blimey, it's almost unusable!
