Thread: Warbird Replicas Bf 110 club.
14/01/2018 10:08:55

Morning Paul,

I have re read the thread but I thought that I would see if there were any other ideas. I to have a wonderful set of resin stacks, which I seem to think you had something to do with.

With mine I have even opened out the pipes with a dremel. Took a while but the effect is good. Just got to find a way of giving them a scale colouring.

Ps. Now that I have paid for my 109 I can now start to have a look at the 109 while I am waiting for the weather to improve so the I can start spraying.

I expect that I will be asking you a few questions on that thread also.

I am pretty much decided that a more fashionable airfoil will be used. Principally just because these older kits I have built seem to be more a one speed affair, without a lot of power being used.

You are absolutely correct with the flying characteristics. The one in our club as mentioned before is some 120%(wingspan is around 78" 3 channel. Flies on a 2820/10 with very little throttle. Perhaps that is the charm of this great model.

Hi all,

Just thought I would dust the cobwebs off this thread.

Any conclusions as to the best way of dealing with the exhaust stacks on the bf110?

We have one flying in our club. It has been enlarged to around 120%. It flies very well with a small brushless motor. I’m very interested in your build especially the fitting of aeilerons as I have the plan sitting on my todo list.

Hi Paul, have I missed something? Just wondering why you're showing how to reverse a servo?

27/12/2017 21:11:57

Hi Paul,

I have had a good look inside the box. looks good and looking forward to starting it. reading through the instruction book, just a little concerned with the comments about it's behaviour on takeoff i.e it's inability to track straight, still thats for the future.

Thread: Changing connectors on my Lipo batteries

Out of interest what do you find unsafe about xt60’s. I changed over to them from 4mm bullet connectors as I found them to be unsafe (male pins only protected by fuel tubing).

Potatoes and an orange - you were lucky, all we had were potato peelings and cold water! And they were raw. (I feel a sketch coming on here)

My 109 had just arrived, thank you Richard. Not allowed to look at it yet.

20/12/2017 12:12:46

Hi Nigel, glad to hear that you are making good progress. Trust that your doing those exercises, they do make a big difference with your recovery. I guess that once your ready to start building there will be no stopping you. The 109 should be an interesting build. I’m looking forward to receiving mine (hint hint Richard).

19/12/2017 19:41:09

Ah, Now I understand. Are they expensive?

I would suggest that you make the actual unit removable (velcro is fine) . That way you can have sound in you 109 one week and Spitfire the next !

 

What. Spitfire with a Daimler Benz V12.whatever next? A bf109 with a Merlin.🙄

I thought that ‘Little ‘Richard’ liked ‘Tutti Fruiti with his friend Long Tall Sally.

Perhaps it’s something to shout abuse at when when one makes a mistake during the build. (Not that you will need it). laugh

Richard

Hell I forgot to order me a Richard.....what choice of size and colour does it come in.....?

What would you use one of these for?

You’re making good progress on the 109 Paul. It looks a lot less work than the 110. I am enjoying your build thread and I guess that you will the fountain of knowledge on the WR 109. What a responsibility 🤗 👏

I haven’t heard anything more about the other 109’s fledging their Essex nest. I guess that it won’t be long now.

My 110 has ground to a halt as its awaiting a paint job. It’s A bit cold to spray outside at the moment.

I have often struggled cutting strip on my FET saw. Now going to implement your mod onto mine. Thanks for sharing your idea.
