probally right,never even had a glitch,surpose its a cheap v expensive mind set type of thing.and why futaba cant do them for the same price.

12/08/2020 07:57:43

ive got six or seven and never had a problem but i dont think i would use them in a expensive model though.

dscf2408.jpgi didnt know what to get up to today,but when tidying up sitting in the corner was my RM Trainer so i got it out and started to cover it,when checking posts my last photos on here was 2017(time flies) and im only just started on it again.ive put it in with the ballerina bipe because it will probally be another couple of years before i cover the fuselage.dscf2409.jpg

acrowot xl is fun even up to 20-25 mph,just hovering surfing the wind even backward and with vertical landings ,even depron foamy jets are good for 15-20 mph doing the same and they can really fly backwards.

just done a quick weigh in and it looks like its going to be 6 1/2 pound,i could loose a bit with a smaller battery but I don't thick I would get any real benefit.

dscf2350.jpgdscf2351.jpgdscf2352.jpgdscf2353.jpgwell ive got about as far as I can go until I get some new batterys but ive just spent the money on a new tranny so it might be a while, ive come to the conclusion that my covering skills havent got any better in 40 years,if any thing they have got worse as when I first started I was using my mums house hold iron,eventually she gave it to me as I was always leaving in a bit of a state.dscf2355.jpg

11/06/2020 12:51:53

11/06/2020 09:44:07

that's a nice jig,i must really get one as it must make life so much easier.

Thread: Ballerina Bi-plane

not what I intended for the bottom but came across half a sheet of solar trim plus it was a quick and easy scheme to do,a careful measure of the white as I only just had enough to finish it then on the last aileron top I messed up so had to patch it but hopefully I can hide it a bit more when I sort the top scheme although you have to look for the patch.dscf2349.jpg

i shall have to try this HK film as ive heard a lot of good things about it,this easycoat even on a very low heat seems to go crinkley and brittle but once on don't seem to bad.

06/06/2020 17:46:31

a change of scenery to day,so far it looks ok,its the first time I used iron film for years and it might be me but easycoat is not as nice to use as solarfilm, well as I remember it.dscf2346.jpg

04/06/2020 21:22:34

just sent my email thx Peter.

04/06/2020 19:13:25

a nice scheme,i got plenty of white but might have to go for green or blue as ive not got enough red,but its definitely what im looking for.

04/06/2020 17:37:55

dscf2344.jpgI surpose I had better start thinking of covering and colour schemes,well I have finally fitted the motor and radial and its fits quite good,also managed to dredge the bottom of the barrel and find and fit control horns and wing servos.the elevator and rudder servos will have to wait a while until I work out the balance as on my normal ballerina I fitted the servos under the tail as it was very nose heavy.dscf2343.jpg
