With crossed well beloved hammers.

Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions
14/08/2018 19:26:08

Can I point out that the thread title is Technical Questions. That to me is how to run the things. If in future I have to wade through the irrelevant garbage to find a kernel of knowledge, I will be annoyed.

I have pre-cons for extracting vengeance.

Arrrrrrrrr, but the spring does the up.

A micro servo, 9 grams, is 50 grams of lead on the nose.

Having a think, you don't need an UP cable on the closed loop for the elevator if you fly it as stated. A spring would do the job. To be fair, once trimmed you would not touch the elevator in flight, rudder and throttle only, with a bit of trim on the elevator depending on how much speed you want that day, to suit the wind.

Save weight at the back.

I would stick to the Laser 70. In power output it's in the same region as an open rocker 90. So you won't lack oooph with the 70.

Thread: Domed Prop nut help

When I was a lad, I used to flick start motors. 30 hours of physiotherapy, to start the cure , of the resulting engine staters elbow, cured me of the use of the stick.

Thread: ASP 120 or Saito 125 four stroke

The Saito 125 is one of the very best Saito engines and when properly tuned is remarkably economic on fuel, to the point that the nitro content required is a trivial issue.

Except if is the only motor using the fuel.

Bigger prop nuts exist. Just engines supply. Other suppliers exist.

Accepted the Saito is a better motor, but,

The ASP is 2/3 the price. Is a workhorse. Runs on very ordinary fuel.

I'm not knocking your desire to acquire a Saito.

Thread: 35mhz; 40mhz; or 72mhz best for electric model
12/08/2018 06:41:44

I think 35 meg is best. It's an aircraft frequency in France, look up allowed channels. The others are shared frequencies and there are a lot of bait boats and things in France .

You are wrong. Nice motor.

Thread: Some advice required please :)

Chris, don't love the trainer. Break it, rebuild it. Keep going.

06/08/2018 12:56:46

I'm old school, but, I reckon, something electric, with some auto stabilisation to start you off, sounds like a good idea. But if you are planning the club route, see them before laying out cash

Thread: Sheep and black cars!

Nah, black car drivers don't reverse without looking, and a need for mint gelly.

Thread: Help with building a depron plane from a balsa plan.
04/08/2018 21:23:29

First question, you plan to replace balsa with depron. Are you happy with balsa? Because, if not happy with the structural behaviour of balsa, you are stretching your knowledge base to put depron in the mix.

Thread: Well, I never thought that would never happen !
04/08/2018 21:17:42

Nah, the God is playing with you. Don't you think you are on a purple patch.

Thread: Thin foam sheet

Cheers Percy, my sister lives in Brixham, only half an hour away. I had totally forgotten the name, and will pay them a visit when I see her next.
