if you are going to take up flying electric models, get a wattmeter too. Important.... You will then be able to check the state of each cell, view the power output of your set-up, decide what propeller to use etc. etc.

Well, BEB certainly stirred-up some responses here. What type of stick did he use?

There is no such thing as a grammar Nazi, that's a terrible word to use in this context, just people who were taught, many years ago, correct English grammar as it existed in those days. Now, like everything else, the language is becoming influenced by America and going downhill (evolving???). 'Me and John went to the pictures' really - John and I went to the pictures. surely... There is a horrible habit these days of always putting 'Me' first but then most people put themselves first in most things now don't they...... I must conclude my rant now or I'll be here all day.

Answers on a pre-paid post card please.

It's and expensive workshop tool though and in it's infancy. Better and cheaper machines will come along in a few years time. I'll wait.

Thread: Warps. How Do You Get Rid Of Them?
17/10/2016 08:12:47

I think that to be sure to avoid a total loss of the model one day, it'd be best to strip the wings use a little, fine water spray and then weight the wings on a flat table until dry. I know that you said that you didn't want to strip the wings but it might be worth it in the long run. Using heat to rectify covered warped wings are often ok at first but then revert to the warped state when the sun gets to the wing. I have had this experience.....

Thread: Hole cutting in Liteply

I completely agree with John Timmis and others who emphasise the need to securely hold material being machined. Common sense I would have thought anyway.

Flat bits will need to be very sharp to avoid tearing plywood. I have always been disappointed with the spring steel sets too.

Have a look at a set of Forstner bits they are very useful and will cut a perfectly clean hole even in plywood and they will last for years and they are not expensive. Do a Google search to see what they look like.

Thread: ammo box

If you store your lipo batteries all together, in a box for example, and one 'goes whoof'' don't you think that that may set the others off too?? Seems logical to me....

Thread: Playboy Senior build

Now that really is a classic Peter.

05/09/2016 08:21:33

Thank you Gonzo and Darryl. It looks very tempting..............

04/09/2016 09:13:09

A good old timer Darryl and your build looks very good and nice to see. The old pylon models were like a cross between a power model and a glider (quite unlike the modern powered gliders). I remember the Mallard fondly. From where did you download the plan of the Playboy?

Thread: 1;2,3 Ka6 cr
03/09/2016 08:46:56

I use to own a full-size K.6. It's a lovely glider and climbed like a eagle. However, the cross-country performance was of course not up to glass machines. A bit of a classic favorite.....

Thread: Crossover EP glider/sailplane

Whilst a good foamie, the Heron is more liable to tip stall if flown too slowly in the turn (in a landing approach for instance). Phoenix 2000 better for a beginner.
