|Thread: Good news thread.|
What a game!!!! England world champions at one day cricket, it was the most tense, thrilling game of anything I've seen. Ever.
|Thread: Tony Nijhuis Harvard - Build Log|
Rotary?!! In a Harvard! Maybe a radial.
|Thread: Laminating film prior to silk and dope|
I have covered a couple of models with tissue over mylar. I can't remember how thick the mylar was but it came from free flight supplies, very cheap. First I put some thinned balsalock on the balsa framework, then attach the mylar all around the edges using a covering iron, shrink the mylar. The tissue was sprayed with water then put over the mylar one panel at a time brushing on water based varnish from B&Q when dry use wet and dry to trim off edges then do next panel. Once coveref give another coat of thinned varnish, job done.
No dope was used only cheap water based varnish, no smells and brushes clean in water. The covering was very easy to do even though you are doing two covering jobs on one model. It's light and puncture proof.
|Thread: Motor pulsing|
As above, probably a bad connection to one of the motor wires. Had it happen a couple of times, the first time it was intermittent, the heat shrink was the only thing holding the connector on the end on the wire.
|Thread: CAA registration consulation|
Boats will have to be registered next, then trains, all dangerous you know.

|Thread: How do you buy your Balsa?|
Percy those saws are very nice, wish I had one but until I do it's a balsa stripper and a Stanley knife for the hard stuff.
I don't keep much wood in stock only buy when I have a plan to build. My local shop (Inwood) don't stock anywhere as much balsa as they used to so if possible I buy from Balsa Cabin or SLEC preferably at the NATS.
Don't buy in bulk or specials.
Very posh. I use this to cut my stripwood......
|Thread: Smiley Problem|
Will it work on a black and white telly?
Anybody seen the test card? It's disappeared from my telly
|Thread: Mini/micro lathe|
Which lathe to buy question is a minefield a bit like the which transmitter is the best one to buy. Sorry I can't answer your question directly as I don't own a mini lathe, but I can recommend a good place to buy one from **LINK**
I have purchased tooling from Arc Euro and they are an excellent company to deal with. Have a search on the Model Engineer forum for Mini lathes, they have been discussed many times before. **LINK**
|Thread: Elan 100 Build|
Good collection of engineers squares you have there Andy, I must get some more. I would like to build an Elan, it looks a nice kit, although I would put a motor in the front.
|Thread: Favourite Non Scale Sport Bipe?|
My MPX Rockstar is a hoot to fly. 4s lipo powered.
|Thread: Modelling Board / Pin Board.|
Plasterboard every time, cheap, cuts to size with a knife, takes pins easily, you can draw on guide lines directly on the the board to build whatever over them. I seal the edges of the board with parcel tape.
|Thread: Half a page ?|
|Thread: Fieseler Storch|
Sadly the owner sold the Storch that lived at Old Warden some years ago....
Lovely airoplane, an it could fly so slow it often looked like it was flying backwards.
|Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Sabre & MiG15 RCM&E 2018 Special|
They're on the plan,..
|Thread: Can a drone fly at 10000ft?|
But what if you could take another look at it to confirm or prove what you saw.
If they they record the "incident" then it could be played back on the the ground to identify what the object was. Not exactly the cutting edge of science to fit cameras, not just to the cockpit but all over the sircraft.
|Thread: My motor has started screaming|
I've had exactly the same, intermittent screach noises and prop rocking backwards and forwards, dodgey connection between esc and motor.
|Thread: Covering Models With Nylon|
I use water based varinish from B an Q for tissue over Mylar, hardly any smell and brushes wash in water. Cheap as chips.
