EXCELENT had other things to do but could not put it down. Andy's AVA review is spot on.

Only complaint with this issue is that it seems to focus almost entirely on i.c

Yes, I don't know how "Young Ashers" does it, but from what I've been told he does seem to have quite a following of "nice ladies" - all right for some.

Pity the Airspeed Courier is designed for electric. I wonder if an inverted 30 size 4st would be up to it?

I haven't read much of it yet, but enjoyed the proxxon circular saw review - and on that note can we have more tool reviews? I don't know about other people, but I have always considered buying tools, but have been put off by the price and wondering how much they would actually improve the quality of the models I build.
 
Ian, perhaps that's your god(s) (for PC ) telling you should try electric...

I find reading the i.c bits interesting, but I do get naffed off with reading about nothing else. The mag should reflect a wide range of interests and normally does. That's my only real gripe. I've probably found an hour's worth of reading this month

Hi Birdy,
 
I've got three, no four electrics and have flown many more. They are okay but there's no reason not use IC as well. (Balanced argument )

I still fancy the Courier with a 4st though.

Ian,
 
Go for it - the prop doesn't really care what form of power spins it, does it?

Obviously you'd have to re-structure the nose somewhat (no biggie), but I'm wondering what size prop you'd use on a 30 4-stroke? The prototype uses a 9" one, and has adequate ground clearance for our grass strip. You might have to look at lengthening the undercart a tad if you wanted to fit a bigger one, so you'd have to take a look at whether a longer leg will retract into the wing easily!

Good issue.
 
I don't agree that it "seems to focus almost entirely on i.c"
 
There's Nigel Hawes column. The free plan is electric powered, and so are three out of the four kit reviews. Pretty strong electric representation, I'd say.
 
Plus, virtually all of the entire content of many of the remaining articles ("What Goes Up", "Make it Scale", "A Cut Above", "Totally Trad") is equally applicable to all disciplines

Hi Tim,
 
Thanks for that info. Yes 9"x6" would be hitting around 11000 revs which the SC30 is claimed to cope with but in practical terms I'd go for something bigger - 9"x7" might be a simple solution I think.

Once again we have some ex-pat from Spain, whingeing about wanting metric equivalents. Last such letter was from someone in France. What is it that makes these people go native once they leave dear old Blighty? I've looked back through umpteen issues of RCM&E and it seems that almost everything is quoted in both Imperial and Metric, so I don't understand the gripe. I was taught both at school, and continued to use both in 40 years in engineering. I can easily work in metric, but my mind's eye judges much better in Imperial. Why is it so hard for some people to do the simple arithmetic to convert either way?

I use a 9X6 on my SC 30 FS engines. They seem to like that prop best.

Re metric and imperial, I am young enough to have been bought up with only metric, but to be honest, even if it isn't quoted in metric, I am fine, since it isn't hard to convert, and you get used to the imperial - I now think of most things in inches not cm (upsets DT teachers too. )
