|Thread: Reduction Drive|
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 interest
|Thread: I.H. Brown|
There is also the Edgley Optica in Sarick's list.
|Thread: Boeing 737 Max 8|
tragic for the families concerned.
Concorde one crash and scrapped
Boeing 737 lost count still flying!!!
|Thread: 1/6 Westland Whirlwind|
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
Pictures of my whirlwind from modified 1970's plan. Now 2 part wing and homemade oleo retracts. Covered with light weight glass and water based resin. Waiting for warm weather to paint. asp 32 two stoke power. More sport scale than actual scale, 65 inch span.

|Thread: Field mower question|
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.
|Thread: Liquid Masking|
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.
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
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?
|Thread: Gatwick drone incident|
Items of anatomy much lower down need removing as well!!!
This item of idiocy will hit us all now, possibly registration and licencing for all people using rc equipment mandatory.
|Thread: Laser Appreciation Society|
Shame you aren't in the midlands, lots of retired toolroom craftsmen wouldn't mind a little part time job to keep occupied.Probably all modellers wanting a Laser Engine!!!
|Thread: If you love the Typhoon|
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.

If he had 7 lives, he just used up 6 of them! That's one lucky man

|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|

|Thread: Solartex alternative?|
Simple question does oratex need a separate application of adhesive to the airframe, or is it already coated to the covering and just needs heat activation. Missing solartex already
|Thread: workbench design?|
Obtained my worktop from a kitchen supplier, offcuts usually available various widths/lengths/thickness normally very flat an distortion free, smooth finishes available and easily cleaned. Fixed on top of a set of ikea draws for storage space one end and supported at other end by fixed trestle . Gives knee space or storage underneath.
|Thread: Making brass 'P' clamps|
Needs to make some brass clamps for cabane fixing. Seem to remember an article on "how to" sometime ago. Any body with a better memory to point the way would be appreciated. Would prefer not to use plastic
|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.
|Thread: BMFA membership Platform training for Club Administrators|
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.
