All I can say is Watch out poor people of Padstow. If you want some peace Richard there is a bike hire place just down in the carpark next to Steinland. Hire them a bike and send them down the Camel trail, tell them not to come back until they spot a camel. All that sea air should clear the dope out of their little heads.

So what are we saying. I'm sure that for us who are venturing into our 1st twin especially electric would like to know and how to prevent it.

I thought that we were almost guaranteed to be problem free. Was it a possible battery power problem? To me it looked like a classic stall . Is it a case for telemetry monitoring of both batteries outputs?

Thread: 250gm Outdoor

A limit of 250gm, before State regulation kicks in, seems to be gathering traction, worldwide. For me, at least, making and flying stuff without additional bureaucracy would be very attractive, but just what can be done with 250gm?

I am aware of the indoor stuff (and particularly impressed by indoor scale) but for the average UK power and slope flier? Would unregulated outdoor flight just get blown away?

Ideas and pictures would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

John

I'm not sure where you got this info from, I think this was all delt with months ago. Read info supplied by BMFA.

Hi Michael

There are 2 leads coming off the lipo. The one with multiple wires (jst-xh is the balance lead (used when charging)

The 2 heavy wires are the + and- power leads. These will plug into the esc and also the charger ( so plugs will need to be compatable. The thin 3wire lead coming from the esc plugs into the receiver and supplies the power for rx and servos .Hope this helps.

You two guys are leading the way for the rest of us, and doing a great job.

The kit is a work of art, a lot of thought has obviously gone into the design. Well done Richard -Proper Job!

I also only got 2 threaded Rods 1long,1 short. I have got my retracts but will need some guidance when the time comes as this will be my 1st installation. 1st twin, 1st retracts, only taken 40+ years.

DD - impressed by your speed of construction, looking good.

Looks amazing Nigel. Must have taken a fair time. Nice work

31/03/2017 15:02:29

I agree, masks would be very useful.

DD

Making good progress.

Graham, although I haven't started mine yet,like you finishing another project, I've been trying to figure out / thinking about the same rear end linkage set up.I have been looking at other plans with the same set up to see how they tackled it.so your not on your own.
Certainly wouldn't put a servo down the back end as you would need a lot of weight up front to counteract this.
Cheers Graham

I'm pleased it's not just me. I like to sort problems before starting a build incase mods need to made. Paul's idea looks an easy solution.

30/03/2017 10:18:26

Hi Paul,

Hard luck! perhaps you ought to build a jerry can to go with your jerry plane.

I guess a snake will be much easier to link up than a multi bent push rod. I seem to forget the simple solutions these days.

30/03/2017 09:58:03

I have, just got the t/p framework glued up. not going full out yet as I am putting the finishing touches to an old long term project.

I have spent a long time looking at the linkage to the rudders, how to get access etc also whether you can put the servo down the back end. I assume all connections will need to be made prior to glueing on the tailplane.

I seem to spend enormous amount of time thinking and just going round in circles.If I can get round what is now for me a big hurdle I'll be happy.(Think it's one of the problems of getting old)  It's called procrastination.

Hi Bob, it's good to know what things to look out for when in the design process. At present I don't have a printer to experiment with. Thought it better to get to grips with a CAD program first.

It doesn't, matter what servo it is. It's the development and tools that we are trying to learn to use.

Hi Bob,

Have enjoyed working through your 1st 2 designs. I've been wondering how does the printer cope with the small overhang when printing the groove on the bottom of the saddle clamp?

A couple of designs worth looking at -

Servo wing frames

A receiver holder with external mounting lugs and arial guides.

I understand, thanks. i was just checking that I was using the correct part. Yours is coming along well, trust your pleased with it.

28/03/2017 20:09:52

Just started to dry fit the tailplane together. Found it quite difficult trying to line it all up whilst putting it together. One thing i have noticed is the bell crank plate is too long to fit between the ribs. Anybody else found this?

My Galaxy Twin scorpion had a similar tail and it lived though many a beating so i wouldnt be too worried.

And lets be honest, why give yourself another part of the model to forget when loading the car? Remembering the wing and tx seems to be hard enough for some so having to remember the tail as well will be a disaster!

Iv'e done that a few times over the years.. I would agree that it would add complications to the build..It's just that the fins and rudders are stuck on the outside with little support. Guess I need to ensure packing the car carefully.
