  1. Nick, look out for an SH (South Herts) twin intelligent onboard glow.. Both plugs will stay lit so no chance of flameout.. Plus, it only comes on when it detects low plug voltage ie. when cold fuel comes in on an aboarded landing.
  2. Hangar 9 pro-lite wheels are low bounce and much lighter than Dubro. I think these wheels have an inner foam core. The Slec / Radio Active wheels are good too.
  3. Maxlock connectors seem like a good solution, but, does it require cutting the plug off servo lead and crimping ?
  4. The PZ Wildcat is a lovely little flyer.. The thin plastic cowl cracks easily so best to reinforce with F/G inside.
  5. I have the same problem.. cannot view.. No withdrawals but would like to have access same as everyone else..!
  6. Yes, it's the Rx battery voltage using LiFe. The audio warning came on - "low battery" and straight after it crashed. Rx battery was showing 6.4V so I presume it 'fell off the cliff'. Should the alarm be set at 6.5V ? Or, is anything below 6.6 in danger territory.
  7. A club member's model crashed due to total loss of control due to Rx battery. He was using a small 2s LiFe and had not charged it since previous flying session. The Rx voltage showed 6.4V on Tx. So, my question is - What is the lowest voltage one should go down to with a LiFe to be safe?
  8. The Pup looks lovely in the air.. Nice pics!
  9. Timing is important in a stall turn. Use the momentum on the upline just before the model comes to a complete stand still. It also matters which way you turn.
  10. I had problems logging on to RCM&E to view magazines. I had to request a new password because they are two different sites. I use Firefox on my laptop and it works perfectly.
  11. Amazing build Tim.. coming along in leaps and bound! Never knew a Spitfire build would require hand stitching, except maybe perhaps the pilot's attire. Good flying tomorrow chaps.
  12. It's the Subscriber ID I need.. to crack the code. Can one of the mod's advise. Thanks David, will that mean changing the password on the Forums site?
  13. I have tried that but keep getting.. Sorry, unrecognized username or password. Have you forgotten your password?
  14. I have a problem.. I cannot log into the RCM&E Main page. I am trying to open a new account with same password but do not know my Subscriber ID. Can someone help please.
  15. The Mylar fibre hinges I normally use are quality ones - made by Great Planes. And I can get a tighter gap than with the other type.
  16. Which hinge type is best for rudder on 60 size, 4kg+ aerobatic sports model.. Mylar or nylon/plastic? Thanks.
  17. Seagull make excellent models and at a good price too, however they have gone up in recent years. They have good fit & finish.. The wood selection is good, all covered with quality Oracover (except for a basic trainer). I had their ic version Pilatus PC-9 Roulette. It's a beautiful 40 size sports model. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a low wing aerobatic scale model which has no vices. I will get another one someday.
  18. There was a couple of Perry pumps for sale on BMFA Classifieds recently. Put a wanted ad up on there.
  19. This site is great.. I can now brush up on my punctuation and grammar..
  20. Tesco Anti+Bac lemon multi-suface wipes. Works wonders. Try it.
  21. Congrats Tim, I'm glad you're enjoying it.. Can't wait to fly mine now! Good to hear your positive thoughts on this model. Edited By ASH. on 19/05/2020 15:54:26
  22. As Jon says, Thunderbolt P-47 fly very well. No nasty vices! Seagull do one in 20cc size, it's a manageable size. Fit a good 120 4st or Laser 100. There is an excellent thread on here by Tim Flyer. A Chipmunk is classed as a warbird and was a trainer in full- size.
  23. If you are an avid sports fan then these cancellations such as Rugby, football etc. is sure going to disappoint, upset and anger some. Same as the other difficulties threatening financial security etc. Well, this is "life & death" stuff and we need to get our priorities right! I have found my anger is up there when I go out there. Don't know why.
  24. Dai, it's because we don't like to be controlled. I pay my subs and I will fly when I want. There's been just too much dithering with the gov. No containment whatsoever! They were so many flights from Italy last Sunday with Italians escaping, no checks, they all just disappeared in the crowd. This is a cull now, only the fittest will survive! They want more people to catch it and recover so we have 'herd immunity'. Edited By ASH. on 13/03/2020 16:43:10
