    As a “lapsed” long time and early founding member of the RCME forum, I am saddened to have just stumbled upon the sad news that my old flying friend and general lovely rascal Phil Wood has passed away. ? RIP my friend
  5. Well done Pete on being so quick on the build, first on the build, and doing a maiden in 60 mph wind on the big rock!  I did venture outside my office and look over, but even at 1.5 plan size didn’t spot ya 😀. Look forward to getting going on mine sometime👏👏 Edited By Tim Mackey on 03/01/2020 05:11:23
  6. I’m not proposing that you use a nimh pack in your glider - just use it to prove / disprove the the functionality of the BEC. A servo has a voltage critical circuit within it - it’s not comparable to a simple dc brushed motor in a slot car Yes the BEC usually is a regulated 5v
  7. Incidentally most receivers are happy on high voltages 6v + but it’s the SERVOS that in many cases will not be happy - unless specified otherwise your common or garden servo is only rated at 6v and fully charged LiPo is 7v+
  8. Posted by Tim Mackey on 05/08/2019 17:58:38: Well before you try a new esc can I just suggest that you try to bind using a simple battery rather than the BEC on the ESC. If that does prove to work correctly, then it would suggest, or confirm that the voltage output from the ESC BEC is duff. Try this link to a U Tube tutorial” that I did years ago 😉 **LINK**

  10. Nice work so far Martin 👍🏻 PS: Anyone thinking of this one, I assure you she flew a treat when I had five minutes on the sticks at the Lleyn.
  11. Yes Tony - I have used the same make fan ( also got mine from bangood ) but 70mm in my Windrider Bede. Cracking unit for very little money, pretty sure Jeremy has this one in the Mig.
  12. Posted by Steven Shaw on 30/04/2019 13:55:21: Both links work fine on my PC - Thanks for posting, by the way. 👍🏻
  13. Couldn’t see an embed / resize option on the U Tube “Share” button ? Perhaps the forum system has improved since I last used it - or is it the IPhone limitation etc? Seems to work ok for me, but apologies if I’ve screwed the thread up 🤷🏼‍♂️

  15. Here’s a mate demo-ing his Mig this evening **LINK** Edited By Tim Mackey on 29/04/2019 21:33:29 Edited By Tim Mackey on 29/04/2019 21:34:50
  16. Only recently returned to UK after lengthy time at sea with little of no internet. Steve Hargreaves kindly informed me of this sad news, and my condolences go out to all Dave’s family. 😢
  17. Posted by Nigel R on 22/11/2018 10:40:40: Their search engine is beyond hopeless. Google works better at searching their website. Awful! Can't beat them for anything small, foam, or motor/ESC/battery related. Anything large, wood, IC, or where I want a "quality item" (surprisingly often) and I'm shopping elsewhere. AMEN
  18. You’re progressing well there Dave - she’s looking nice at that size too 👍🏻
  19. Yes sadly the weather could not have been much worse, for Saturday especially. A last minute slight increase of wind speed saw five of us have a nice few hours on the Easterly slope late evening Sunday. Thanks for the company and usual laughs to - from L to R...... Chris Barlow, Bob Jennings, Myself, Mark Kettle, and Steve Kemp on the camera phone 👍🏻
  20. Im in for NYD 👍🏻 A few new models to maiden too😀
  21. If North Wales is anything to go by, and I know it isnt......... Its flippin torrential rain and wind here - definately flippers, goggles, and lead boots weather
