Hi Cymaz

Do you need support at the front of the prop driver to help the bearing. Thrust from the pulleys and belt will not be in the same direction as with a normal prop loading. May cause the bearing and case to fail?

Following your build with interestyes

Hi Timo

Been following your build since you started. Impressed by your design and build. Mine has had a lot of planking

(fuselage/nacelles). Modifying someone else's design can be a right head ache. U/c doors sprung with elastic bands

Just an observation, please be careful about advertising the quality of your equipment, there are those out there who will be willing to releave you of it, when inadvertently advertised and traceable on the wide web.

Given that its a fine investment Martin. thumbs up

Should be ok on canopies, as vac formed ones are used in plastic models. Check out the Hyperscale and aeroscale website forums for method/application tips.

Don Fry is correct leave Jon to get on with the job, jumping on his back with suggestions that have possibly already been considered will only result in a small business side line being abandoned as too much aggravation for the returns. Then we shall all be the poorer.

Thread: SC52 2stroke issue.

As the exhaust is above the engine, could it just be a case that any residue in the exhaust is flowing back into the ports and choking the engine at tick over as the pressure is insufficient to clear it at idle revs?

Items of anatomy much lower down need removing as well!!!

As Andy said they do have an engine(all one ton of it) saw it last year inside the boult bee academy hanger at Goodwood. One of the principle members was my pilot in a Harvard ride, he showed me round and said they hope to get it to the states for refurb to zero timed. They are also in possession of all drawing specs and mods one of which eliminates Co2 in the cockpit. Good Luck to them.

Thread: Build versus flying time

Enjoyment is both in the building and flying, as to the ratio that is down to the individual. Sorting the problems is what keeps the grey matter active. And benches in the pits are for having a good natter.laugh

Sorry John nothing to do with communication, its the fact the terms and conditions are ambiguous and put all responsibility on club administrators, you don't give your time freely to club to stand at the wrong end of a firing butt.

I will let others pass comment now that's my lot.
