|Hey All |
Sorry not been about things been a little hectic this way so not been able to get online, what with running a new business and other commitments
Well now I’m back for a few days.
Ok time for the replies to everyone again my apologies for the lateness in doing this …
You really are a man of wisdom. But that was a quote I had seen before from my school days.
I think your model looks good but I have to say that the model you first made looks much better but then that’s me being a traditionalist
I will add some more pictures of my work over the last few days in the next few days.
|Well been waiting for more parts to finish this model.. now i have them all i think.. just waiting for the slow fly prop..|
not got much done today seems that even though i have had some time to myself its not gotten anything done.
but least now i have the wheels sorted and the landing gear looking a little better.
and a kind friend ((((Steve)))) has sent me some shrink for doing the wiring so thank you there kind Sir..
oh and i have made a small battery holder not sure if its going to work well but .. its a trial and error work in progress .
so i got something done how ever little but as they say little each day the model will get finished ... and she will
Just seen this post it was further up the post and I didn't know it was there.. really sorry.
thank you for looking into that for me.. how do you get closest to the 0.5mm that's not going to be easy with out a micrometer I would guess that's going to be the only way it could be done that's something I don't have..
The motor that your using is still the same one as I'm using..? or you going with a different one..when you say that the 40mm is from mount to the prop driver, do you mean the back of the prop driver or the tip.. so I can measure my one just to be sure.. ..then i can get my model spot on Too..
laughing @ this comment never heard this one before..
Ian i thank you in advance for your testing very grateful ..am wondering if its going to be more than what i have got in..
Steve / Pete
thank you for all that info .. well i do think this plane business is more complicated than if first looks ... but with people such as yourselves giving the info does make some of it a little more digestible .. still i think its gong to take some time to work this little lot out..
but from what you have put has giving me a good insight into what i needed to know
its good having people all clued up on the ideas at hand ..
thank you all
sorry for the multi post dont know why it did that only clicked send once odd
well i have to say i really like the idea of the full sides may do that to not on this model but on another ..i see you have nearly or if not the same motor as me .. what esc did you use im using 18A some say a 20A would be better.. but got it now..thank you for the picture i like to see whats happening rather than just explanations .. for some reason things sink in better 40 mm wheels they look well suited to this model like it.. will look online for some
|Pete B |
thank you that put in perfect terms understood that one perfectly.. something's just need explaining and then when you do things next time it make life easier .. and gaining know how is always a plus..
Aerodynamicists will pull that one apart i guess .. they have terms i would only be able to guess what they would mean or how it would work..
again well put
thank you guys
looks like its going to be fun putting this into the plane .. not done this style before.. everything i have done is engine power and cowling not built up....
I have flown about 5 times but some time ago.. So thinking about getting someone who knows what they are doing to test it .. not sure who yet though..
may have a word with Mr C Bliss
think there is a lot gone into it from all three sides here both of you and myself.. I know I couldn't have done it on my own..
Very grateful for everyone's kindness in here .. its like a model building family sometimes
sound stupid but why do we of set like this ? i have my ideas but im not going to air them as dont want look stupid if I'm wrong
|Hi Ian glad to have you aboard the post|
thank you for you kind comments i like the look of your model seems the blue and white look is a good idea ... have gone and bought blue servos too so it all blends in. .
was hoping to test fly this one myself is she a dream to fly ??
may have a word around and see if there is someone close to me that can test it for me as I'm a little new to this..
Do you mind me asking what size wheels you have on your model they look like they're smaller than said on the plant that I have .. 1" or 2"
cant wait to fly this one Have to say that pictures don't do this model justice. she is better in person.
|thats Ok Steve didnt take it as you was taking a pop its cool np|
I personally dont think maths is my strongest point im a hands on worker.. and my skills are computers and radio's 19 grade A's and a distinction diploma ACITP. but as i have yet to use it thats near worthless.
And the speed at which things are changing in the world of laptops n pc its about as good as a chocolate fireguard ..
wow thats some maths there will read that a few times then get back to you if you dont mind??
according to the drawing the is a motor of set of 1mm to the right hand side of F1
|you sure you wasn't a maths teacher in a past life |
well when i was a school life wasn't great and the teacher i had didnt give a hoot as long as the students turned up didnt really set any work .
so working out things like this will never be my strong point but it does get in there in the end.. just not as fast as everyone else
so in short then the difference in distance back from the left hand side front to the mount and the right hand side front to the mount ??? in deg or mm
ENGLISH MR ENGLISH ?? TANGENT??Sorry Steve you have lost me a little .. not 100% knowing .. Im not sure yet will have to have a read up on the offset sorry
yes they was fast very happy cant get better than that
as soon as i find out will msg back
Well that's an odd one . door bell just went and 3 guesses WOOOHOOO its all here .. motor, ESC, servos, battery WELL HAPPY looks like I can get on with things now.
Thank you i thought that you was going to say that but had to make sure there.. the more surface you can get is always best.
I have used metal inside metal so would that be the reason? as its all I had can i do the same as you said maybe rough it up a little ??
well now comes the hard part the motor mount angle / degree how do i work that out so its right??
always something to ask .. but by end of this i should know for the next one.. thats already planned>>>>
|now you have brightened up my day i can just picture how you found out the hard way and how fast you moved in the process .. sorry shouldn't be laughing .|
thanks for that info .. I hope they do I have plans for the weekend and some building is in there .. I want to get the top of the cowling in place to make it look more plane like .. and to work out the engine mounting that's one to think about .. ... Nodding in agreement to the confusion part too..but its all worth it when I see it fly ..
well at the moment I'm working on the tx + rx . as I only have a Sanwa set at the moment old style not 2.4 .. so I think that will be my next payment buy a new one .. money not on my side
Wish I could pick up a little second hand one for this model but that's going to have to wait. just so much i need ....charger, watt meter, radio gear.. its never ending
thanks for the info on the G.C Was thinking it would get here in 3 days but with the hold ups on payments then its looking 4-5 its all build time wasted
|Thread: We"ve WON Whoopee|
great news guys the flying patches are getting less now, we need all we can get ..good to see council doing their job right
|Thread: Pix-e major (christmas winner build)|
Thank you guys ...
I think that's the best way to do it got to have a good contact don't really want the glazing taking its own flying lesson..
On the covering to acetate front would you do it the you only contact it to half the balsa edge so that you have the other half for the covering to stick to .. or does it look better with it slightly covering the acetate to give a clean edge??
was thinking of using it on the top and sides but use acetate on rear and front not sure.. my pet-hate is glazing it never goes perfect.. for some reason..
last thing Tim .. some reason I'm having a problem with the wings staying in place.. its fine till I add the struts under the wing then it pushes them out or off centre..
I have cut a set shorter and its still not doing what i think it should ,
anything you would recommend?
Thanks for the links they will come in very useful I need both for sure.. I have some canopy glue its not great but its not failed me just yet .. but when I run out I think may have to get your suggestion if it has proven useful to others then its got to be worth a try at that price.
how did you know i have a no'3 scalpel perfect looking tooling its hard to find handy item's like that
Well on the build front seems that things have hit a stop for a day.. just got email from G.C as I'm a new member and using a new debit card its taken a day to process my payment so they are sending out my order today ... hope it gets here before weekend
Has anyone ordered from G.C and done the standard postal delivery...if so how long has it taken for yours to arrive
want to work on the wings being held before i do much more? if anyone else knows a way?? I would be interested in your comments
|Thread: 'Windy Ain't It'|
Alan build coming along very well, its looking good tip top work
will be watching now i know what the build is.. i watch most builds in the hope i may get some tips from what others are doing..
dont worry about people not commenting i have a Pix-e build going at the moment i have 4 people commenting but there must be other people watching ..
I hope there is anyway
Keep up the good work
|Thread: Pix-e major (christmas winner build)|
i have 4 planes on the build board i just love getting hands on with building.. and seeing the finished product. stand back and say i would do that different of that different .. then build another one
i just love wood work.. and making something from nothing.
Thank you Steve
its taking time longer than i wanted but time taken is time well spent i always say
Thank you Tim
i was a little lost where to start next i was going to ask you ..if you hadnt put something in here
just a odd idea you say to do the glazing next i have some plastic for that but was thinking would clear covering be anygood or would that look a little tacky ???
and would you have any suggestions on the body and wing colouring still blue and white but any thing stand out design wise
Im still working out how to do the wording yet too.
