Thread: RCM&E 2019 Fly-In - pics etc,,
14/09/2019 08:24:50

Slightly off topic that picture of the short Seamew hanging from the ceiling,reminds me of a 9/10 year olds ambitious attempt at scale modeling back in the 1950's. Definitely a nostalgic reception.

Thread: E-Hawk 1500

Anyone with a E-Hawk 1500 will find it a brilliant flyer, But as I have had two failiures at the boom/pod join at the ABS blow mould joint. Last one on a decent(for me) landing.

Would be advisable to strengthen the joint with a wrap of glass cloth and resin/epoxy at that point. will now be using some ali tube to reinforce the existing repair internally as well as glass cloth externally.

Thread: Hitec Flash 8 Battery Life

Hi Glenn

Just charged tx battery on multi charger after discharging, showed full charge 7.0. back in tx screen showed 6.9.

Mine usually shows min 6.8 using supplied charger, and holds charge well, just make sure if it needs a top up if required.

Leaks in the fuel supply chain, has the tubing developed pin hole leak in the tank , tipping nose down could be exposing it to pulling in air?

Try the Vallejo Range of acrylic spray paint for plastic models, good coverage for little weight. A small bottle goes a long wayyes

Thread: CAA registration consulation
02/05/2019 10:33:29

Has the CAA just dropped a stone in the pond to see the how large a ripple it produces. then modify their approach according to the strength of the response/outrage. Not happy about it but definitely not affecting the blood pressure.

Is anyone aware if the Flash 8 supports the use of an earphone plug.

😱Gatwick declares drone alert, outside their zone. Day after consultation launch( Am I cynical)

Its probably the same aircrew who landed in Edinborough when they should have been in Dusseldorf!!!, should have gone to spec savers

Our committee is already considering the help some of our elderly members may need for registration/test ie computer literacy. We do suspect that insurance validity will require registration and test. Though most CAA exams are open book type.

27/04/2019 14:20:11

Perhaps the weight of people replying to the consultation will achieve something.

Peter and Percy the Forlorn Hope were a company of soldiers sent into a breach to seal or open it in battle, they inevitably all died. Feels like we are being sacrificed to fill the drone gap due the ineptitude on the part of government/civil service.

All forum members need to answer the consultation

Nothing more certain in life than death and taxes, not sure which is the worse these daysdont know

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
