|Thread: Amazon flying warehouses|
Just read yesterday that La Poste in France has been given permission to use Drones to deliver within a 15km corridor in a rural part of the Vars district....after 2 years of trials..
It's started in France....
|Thread: Destiny, My new design.|
Crackin' Peter...you do have a way of producing really lovely looking models that fly beautifully..love it.
|Thread: Dismantling a Thunder Tiger 91FS.|
When you re-assemble pop the bearings in the freezer for 20 mins beforehand....it does work...or it did for me...as well as cooking the engine in the oven..
|Thread: Vertical storage - which way up?|
This is how I store mine:
|Thread: Petition EASA Regulations.|
I seem to recall that a little while ago new rules in the USA required model aircraft to be registered...the forums over there were full of similar discussions to this one... Has anybody an insight into how that has been implemented / taken up?
|Thread: French Legislative Response to the Drone/UAV problem|
|Kevin b...I am one of those expats in France...believe me it might be a better lifestyle but it certainly isn't cheaper, or less tax..the opposite in fact. |
Anyway this will affect me.. I'm presently on holiday in the Dordogne and have been flying in the field opposite our campsite..getting thermal flights to 350 mtrs + with my Bixler...so already breaking the rules here. But hey! this is France...they only make rules to allow you to ignore them..
Difficult to imagine how this sort of legislature will be policed..but if it is implemented (and that's a big if) I will register and continue as I do...it's a big country..
|Thread: MFs Chipmunk|
Well done Martin, nice to see another one flying - looks a corker.
|Thread: i want one|
I've been flying a Balsa USA (BUSA) 1/4 scale cub for 5 seasons now, and can recommend it...very nice model.
They also do a 1/3 scale kit....12ft span...
SIG do a 1/4 scale kit as well.
Google 'the cub den'...lots of excellent info on there..
|Thread: Danny's "poor mans Spitty"|
Great to see it fly Danny....l must get mine finished.....ready for next season.
Well done..and thanks for the inspiration..
|Thread: Skyways Percival Mew Gull|
I've got one - it's been retired for a while now - just weighed it..covered airframe and wings with undercart, but no motor or any radio gear and it is 3.1 kgs....
It is a nice flyer, very scale flying low tight turns.. and i did not find it tip stalled, but I was aware of the tendency of that shape wing so kept my speed up in turns. Other than that I enjoyed it...but.... you'd better pay attention to the undercart fixing into the wing, it really does suffer from tearing out from the foam no matter how gentle the landing..I had a piano wire set up...the 'boots' also get some damage..
I had a Supre Tigre 90 in it...way overpowered, but i had it so used it, throttled back it was just fine..
ps the canopy from the Seagull kit fits fine....otherwise it's a bit of a messy job....
|Thread: Is Halfords clear lacquer fuel proof|
I've used Poly C and it does not work...10% nitro just turns it tacky and very difficult to get off... might work with 5% or straight but i'll not be using it again...
|Thread: Model for Field next to House|
Hobbyking Bixler...handlaunch, land on grass any length any time of the year..fit altimeter find those thermals in the summer, leave rigged, fit fpv gear..have fun...best bang for the buck I've had in years.
|Thread: MR RF4 1/4 scale electric power setup|
Looking good Martin....more photos?
Have you gone with Mick's airbrake configuration or put in electric units?
|Thread: What's flying over your house|
Well, not really over the house, but the caravan on holiday at Biscarrosse in Sw France, float plane fly in and airshow:
|Thread: Model Workshop Stand|
Nice looking Chippy Jim. Nice colour scheme. What span is it? Powerplant?
I've done next to nowt on mine for over a year - funny how some builds just come to a halt. Construction is virtually finished and it's all glassed, but a lot of detail to go on and then painting...
I'll make a determined effort to finish it this coming winter......when we do, sometimes, get snow...
Jim - you're correct it's a Chipmunk, but it's the Dennis Bryant 1/6th scale.
I see the North East is getting snow today! I'm from Darlington, but been in France 11 years now....cold here, but no snow!
|Thread: Workbench model stand|
I use a banana box, easily customised with a stanley knife...
When it's knackered pick up a new one from your prefered supermarket...
Cheap as banana boxes...
|Thread: Servo input lead position|
What a good idea from emax.....I have always 'snook' the servos in at an angle or notched the rail....but so much easier with that arrangement..not that is has really ever been a problem..but when you see that alternative... i think that's the way to do it....
|Thread: Colin Leighfield's Chipmunk build.|
Colin - the photo is on Danny's thread posted 19th February 2015...only a very slight convex curve as Nev points out...
Colin - just remembered that on Danny's thread he posted a photo he had taken with a straight edge against the fairing of 'his' aircraft and it did show a convex curve....
