I have a fascination for lifting bodies, especially the stability issues. I shall watch your build thread with great interest.

Now then, not really sure...... a pretty little thing, but their only other product has a similarly nostalgic quality. Do you think I could build both in a weekend? Hmmm?

I've got 3m of pure silk knocking about, should I use this for my next one?

Well done on the investigation anyway, could have got expensive with no results. I use one of these little things, they're cheap enough and great for all sorts of soldering and other jobs when another hand is needed.(and they're really cute)

What a super looking aeroplane! It really looks the business.

That's grand. I'll persuade the grandchildren that a belated Christmas present would be most welcome.

When's all this going to kick off anyway? There must be others like me who require notice for expence and convenience purposes.

Personally if some kind philanthropist donated an Eflite Hurricane 25e to my cause I would be very happy.(details here) **LINK**

Thread: Just an idea

Oooh! That's clever! Does it have to come with the baseball cap and goatee beard though?

Thread: Ugly Plane, Great Price. Need a club trainer?

They normally inflate the UK price to cover shipping, so if it does arrive at Lucky Stuff it'll probably be about £50 to £60 ish.

Well done Tony! You're nowt but prolific!

Thread: weston mini hype

It recommends 25 to 45 two stroke Assuming the weight balance issue is ok and it'll fit, then fly with a smaller prop, why not?

Thread: Workshop insulation and set-up
23/09/2012 10:29:27

This is a subject close to my heart. I'm at the stage now when I get my 'glue box' (a tool box), gather up everything likely to be affected by cold weather and bring it indoors. I'm not too bothered about the wood as it is 'wood' and I think central heating will cause more problems than letting it breathe. How many nice antique furniture pieces are cracked and ruined by central heating? But paints, glues etc can and will be damaged by the cold.

Thread: Feels like autumn is approaching, what have you been flying?
22/09/2012 23:06:16

Booming with thermals today, couldn't fail to get my Bixlers wing in to one. Over 1 1/2 hours soaring on one 1300 mah lipo, only landed because my neck was becoming really sore. Bargain.

Thread: Join a club or learn by yourself? (my experience)
21/09/2012 21:01:40

My daily pain and medication cycles are extremely prohibitive when it comes to attending venues and my nearest club is extraordinaly expensive to join, combined with the attitudinal horror stories I have read about on this forum I have decided to self teach. OK, I have the advantage that prior to my illness I was a flying and gliding instructor with over 7000 hrs combined experience, so flight principles aren't a problem, but what IS, is this sitting in the middle of a park surrounded by trees, watching a model very quickly and in the time it takes to do one 360, become very small and undefinable indeed, this is followed by a period of anxiety until it becomes recognisable again. The answer is obviously to keep it close in, but then you're dodging trees and every approach has everything dangling with left stick and right rudder side slipping to get it down safely. Haven't had so much fun since the school dance! Sounds great when it's written down, but YOU go and try it every time you want to land and not have a repair job in the offing. However, the park is always available, I make sure that one of my planes is always ready, and I have only my own self determined(and quite strict) rules to adhere to. So just like me there must be many reading this who are quite happy to do their own thing, although not experiencing the benefits of club membership we are similarly not being hindered either. Apologies for the rant.

Hi Ian, Check out this instruction link **LINK** The crystal seems to be on the bottom left and replacing seems simple enough. Hope this helps.


Thread: Own Design Low Winger
20/09/2012 18:05:25

Thank you Peter, sorry did I mention that I always keep my 'Bible' close to hand, a certain Traplet publication called Designing Model Aircraft. Excellent book!

I really am having fun with this build, trying out different techniques etc. and this is probably reinventing the wheel but I thought of using this simple technique I thought of for the motor mount.

2 x 3mm ply 'firewalls' and 2 hardwood wedges, left one smaller than the right.


Place the wedges on the dummy firewall and move them about until happy with the down and side trust angles.


Once happy pack out and fix the actual firewall into place.
