  1. Sounds like an ideal setup. Hope your club finds some new members. Tim
  2. Jon, There’s a coincidence. I’ve just finished the same build. Just had its maiden test glide which went well. Waiting for a quiet warmer day on the hill now. tim
  3. In the end I had to choose between Weston & the LMA show at Marcle. No brainier for me as it is my local club . Entrance was £10 for non members . Trade stands while reduced were better than expected I even managed to find a 4S LiPo I needed. The flying display put on by the LMA was as ever superb , just love those big planes and , for me, the Vulcan is still the most magnificent site at a model show. Helped by the perfect weather. Think I made the right choice but I would have done both if the dates had not clashed…. Tim
  4. Try 4-maxStand-offs . Anything up to 15 cm by the look of it. Tim
  5. Personally I now prefer to use Sbus for wing connections. Only ever 1 lead to connect. Tim
  6. No backup Tx for my Horus X10 but model memories saved to my Mac. Really hoping the X20 is eventually able to import those files then I might think about buying one. Tim
  7. Chris , real model pilots print them for you at 1/16 scale. That’s where most of the gnat builders went. Check out the provost and gnat builders thread where there’s some discussion over choice. Tim
  8. Interesting Neil, I was fairly convinced about that characteristic as well so I follow the same practice. Tim
  9. Used to fly with Pete Litley , the founder of Penn models back in the 70s . Top man and glad the service is continuing. Tim
  10. I have, in the past, thought of cutting the excess rear motor shaft but decided to live with it as after enquiring of the manufacturer I was told it would invalidate the warranty. If it’s an expensive new motor something to consider. Tim
  11. Indeed Horus OS always required a trigger for each model. I always use Rx volts as a trigger. Tim
  12. Bob, interesting re the neuron parameters . On the Horus OS it only ever recorded ESC values( correctly) and never the BEC values . (They were there because I know you got them ok on OpenTx). Plus none of the neuron TM values appeared in the TM log which was very annoying. Are they there now ? Tim
  13. I just print an A4 page full of the pesky things onto vinyl and peal one off whenever required. Non faded yet and easy to peel off and replace. Tim
