  2. Hi Toto I have been reading all your threads and have enjoyed doing so. I shall follow this one with much interest and am sure you will do a splendid job. Good luck with the stick time and keep at it, as said by others it is a great hobby. Regards Tony J
  3. I too mostly stand behind the model, but have begun to do a few take offs from the piolts box recently, though not for any reason than thought i would give it a go .
  4. Thank you both Andy and Jonathan much appriciated.Those picutures you put up thankyou so much for that will help a lot. This really is a great bunch of people on here ?
  5. Hi all Can anyone please point me in the right direction , I want to know how to go about building a wing when the bottom of the ribs are not flat .if any one can suggest a build that would be worth looking at or a brief discription i would be most grateful many thanks in advance Tony J
  6. Hi all Happy new year to you. Over the christmas period i have been recovering a model that was long over due to be recovered, but it got me thinking as to what people are now using instead of the solar trim. I know that solar film alternatives are out there but are there any trim alterantives. I am also aware that there is still solar trim available but its choice is limited in colours so what do you use ? Kind regards Tony J
  7. Hi Tony H I too prefer IC over electric and agree with some of what you say though I think price increases are just a sign of the times at the moment ,all things seem to be on a upward trend. I worry that the noise issue maybe the eventual end of IC over electric but hopefully not for some time yet. I do love the sound of 4 strokes(but only have two in my small collection of planes), 3 two strokes and one electric .Will soon be adding another 2 stroke to my collection. Kind Regards Tony J
  8. Down the patch on a summers evening everything just so, then you do that (rare in my case) Perfect landing Kind Regards Tony S
  9. Yes please, and a Merry Christmas to all Kind regards Tony J
  10. Hi Nigel Second paragraph I bought an adaptor that allowed you to fit the socket from a three wire switch into it so it effectively became a charge socket on the air frame but as i said never got on with it . Cheers Tony J
  11. Hi all I was wondering if many people use these switches that have the inbuilt charge socket and if you find them useful . I was thinking of fitting one because i do like to test my battery before a flight (that just me ). I did fit one of those sockets on its own but could not get on with it kept pushing the plug back out must have done something wrong when i set it up anyway that's long since gone with the airframe kind regards Tony J
  12. HI Thank you for your comments both You have a good point there Cuban 8 about reinforcing the under cart section. I will look at that. Richard when you say you put it next to the tank did you mean at the side of the tank in the same section because that is about where I reckon I need it to get balance . Many thanks Tony J
  13. Hi all Hopefully a nice simple one. I have just completed an acro wot artf IC version plane . I need to fit the rx battery I am wondering where others have positioned their battery in this model . Many thanks. Tony J

  16. Hi all Oh dear is all I can say I have just ordered some of this only yesterday as other outlets were out of stock of the colour I was after. this does not bode well guess I can only try and see how it goes . Will let you know how I get on.
  17. Hello Mike thank you for your reply I am using metal screws through a wooden side screwing into a steel captive nut Kind Regards Tony J
  18. Hi Thank you all for your replies lots of interesting ways of dealing with the issue , its good to know that I am not alone with the problem. Kind regards Tony J
  19. Good morning All I have a canopy that is located with two peg at the front and then two M3 screws screw into the sides . Now I was flying the other day and returned with one screw missing. So is there away that I can stop them from coming loose in flight. I thought about thread loc but thought this may not suit as they need to go in and out on a regular basis so any suggestions please . Many thanks in advance. Kind regards. Tony J
  20. Hi last year my wife and I were walking up Snowdon in wind and damp when we decided we were getting quite wet on the leg area so stopped to put our waterproof trousers on . The warmth that then came to me I was amazed at . Now to be fair I have not tried this yet when down the patch but may give it a go . otherwise for me its a wool hat finger less gloves . Had a sort of neck thing for xmas dont know what they are called but you put it over your head and its sits around you neck but it can stretch up around face etc also set to give a go at the patch. Regards Tony J
  21. Hi all I have a fancy to build a war bird . Now I am looking to build from a plan so my preference is that of balsa also that of I.C . I believe that these type of models can be difficult to fly which is why I am asking if anybody out there has one that they might like to recommend as a good one to start with . many thanks in advance Tony J
  22. Merry Christmas to all hope you have a good one All the best Tony J
  23. Thanks Chris I truly do not know but will have a look through the manuals I don't recall seeing anything in the past but will re look Regards Tony J
  24. Hi all I have recently hooked up a plane in a buddy system so that I can take my first flight with it with a more experience flyer. However I found that all surfaces were swapping over nicely except the ailerons which seem to have a mass of movement when switched to the trainer tx . I have had to use all my sub trim on the trainer tx to equal them out. now have read in the instructions that it does not recommend that you use too much sub trim to do with overiding the servos can anyone throw any light on why I have had so much movement. all is fine on the master tx and the plane has been flown master tx is JR slave is Spektrum Dx6i hope this makes sense Thanks in advance for your time Kind Regards Tony J
