Thread: ESM Tigercat - powered by Laser engines

I carried my last build on top of my car 3 months ago when i lived in Cyprus, had the police pull alongside and stayed there a couple of miles admiring the model, they waved good by and drove off

Hi Jon, Flite Metal is the best of the foils and it has no affect on the reception, a lot of jets are completely covered in it without any problems


Thread: Best Heating Option For Your Hobby Shed
04/12/2019 02:14:52

Could you use Kerosene in these heaters, i think it would burn cleaner, and be more readily available, i used to buy it for me turbines from the petrol stations when i lived in Cyprus, i suppose its the same here ????

21/11/2019 12:25:50

Well said Gonzo

Gorham and Cragg you jump to the wrong conclusion as usual, its not the fact i have no printer, it is the whole thing of HAVING to take tests and be registered and pay the extra £9, i just added the printer as it might be a problem for other old folk like myself,

19/11/2019 10:02:39

I did the online test and down loaded the certificate

The thing is i dont have a printer, so theres another problem

Im nearly 80 years old and dont like computers, and all this is making me give up the hobbie i started as a 10 year old, ill do something else, where theres none of this bull$€!/

I four and a half rolls of solartex left, i think it should just about be enough to cover mine when im ready to build it, is the plan available without the cnc pack as i like to cut my own parts

im in the same mind as Chris, i started 70 years ago, the last 13 years in Cyprus and iv just returned to this country, i have no A or B or anything else, been flying everything from turbines to gliders, now i have to take a test and answer a load of questions before i can fly

Im in the middle of building a new hanger, maybe ill turn it into a RailRoad station for a new layout

Hi Gary short answer is no, after 2 years building i took it for the maiden, everything checked out, taxied it down wind a 100M and as it turned into wind one of the Castle cremations ESCs @ £250 a pop, let go and by the time my old legs got to it it was well alight, the only thing i could do was to stamp on it with my feet to try to save what i could of all the gear inside her, totally destroyed
