Thank you Mike
that make sence and is a simple way but effective way of working out
im running my ESX-52 on a 52 Leo Engine, I Think its power is about right - with your equation I'm wanting it as a sports model.. but dont want it over powered..
Thank you again Adrian

thank you Tom and Martin for your comments: very simple when you put the motor value ... i wish i was good with the figures for exchange to IC will have to look that onne up ? less someone can do the maths on the motor / ic exchange ... motors are a liitle more simple in figures i should go with them really but i crave the smell / sound and addiction of engines

Does anyone know if there is a maths equation for power to weight of rc builds ?
I know there is when it comes to motors but i need one for engines?
i need this to see if i have over powered my latest build - and an idea so i know how to work it out for my next one too..

this is the plane i need the canopy for

thanks Richard some very useful websites and threads perfect for what i need all help and ideas for someone like me to take in
i agree Andy have found finding parts that fit my designs are few and far between maybe i should build them around the parts im looking for rather than the other way round..?
i think its a skill thats worth learning have made moldings before its not to hard its just getting the right plastic for the canopy where to find vac forming plastic.. thanks for the advice its all to true..
thank you Marko didnt think about trying them will have a look just hope that i can find something without having to go the long route
.....I will add some pitures of the models i have made not sure what people will think of them but its a start.....

thanks steve:
does it really work? and how easy ? I was told by a friend to use a coke bottle but wasnt sure on how to shape it?
20/01/2011 12:51:55
thank you Richard:
i have looked on some sites but all i seem to find are of a war style,
So any sites would be a great help - being new to this, i have found these parts to be the hardest to come by - it may just be me - thanks again
