  1. And yes Jon, it's second hand and it smokes more at high power
  2. It's not a surpass. The oil content is 15% synthetic. 2% castor. And my other engines use this without clouds of smoke.
  3. Running late surpass O.S. 70 four stroker. Southern model craft 5% synthetic, 2 % castor. Doesn't matter how lean I tune it, smoky as anything. Knackered??. Compression is still good.
  4. Right.so my annual subscription says family version, Office 365. Word, Excel etc. Do I need to keep paying this ?? Albert
  5. So I have windows 10 on a HP laptop, and pay a Windows annual subscription. Will that have inbuilt anti virus ??. Trying to ditch Kaspersky: up to £40 now. Albert
  6. Before I start this next build, how can I cover the Scale section undercambered wings. ? I'm a fan of food and nylon; not I was going to try Diacov heat attached covering for this one. But, unsure of the wings ?? All help appreciated. Albert
  7. Thanks boys. Found it, silly me.😁
  8. Bought a couple of rolls for the next model. Never used this before. There didn't appear to be a backing film on this. Looked on their website, no info on how to use it at all. Temperature of iron or any thing. Not used film much before. Any help please ? F Albert
  9. You know my happiest time at shows.??.1970/80s Sandown and Plumpton with good old Dave Bishop.......
  10. Some translation of real Doctors notes. D B, S, B. D. don't bbother soon be dead N F N normal for Norfolk
  11. My sincere regrets. I've been flying at our field for 40 off years. Heartbroken if we lost ours....
  12. I take it that as the LMA are advertising Sleap for next July, Cosford is a no go again ??. Anybody know why ?? Loved Gosford weekend........ Albert
  13. Thanks Kevin, I don't know how it flew (deceased club mate). Maybe a 64mm can would be enough. Never flown edf before.
  14. That's much like I did on mine. 1/16th ply rad shutters over litho plate front. I cut holes under the shutters to aid cooling. Albert
  15. If I was told; 'you have one more build left before the grim deal's it would be the Flair SE5a. My own ( number two ) is still flying. . I have one kit left.
  16. Thanks Simon. I was thinking of 6mm Depron replacing 3/32 inch ribs. 62 inch scale twin. Fully sheeted wing. ??
  17. Guys Not into foam for building. Still balsa/ply. But can see the cost advantage of say, using foam for ribs. Anybody else done/doing this. And what type of foam would work best. Regards Albert
  18. Thank you, never had much luck downloading from here, even though I have an account. Any clues ????
  19. Anywhere I can get a plan for an electric version. ? Albert
  20. Anyone built one of the above ?. It's meant for two i.c. two strokes. Plan/Pack available from Sarik. I'm going to electrify it. ?? Or ?? Albert
  21. Chaps As above. But never built one, and its going to be Glow powered. Choice of OS 70 surpass, (fitting in looks difficult) or OS 56 alpha, again four stroke, but easier to fit (i think) I know they need a forge in the nose to get the balance right, so maybe the 70 but ?? Thoughts, suggestions, all help appreciated. Albert
  22. Gary, you have made my day. The voice of reason. Thanks Mate. Albert
  23. Gary, thanks. I have the exact same charger which came with my old FF9, about twenty years ago. The radio came with Nicads, will this charger be OK for Nimhs.??. Albert, the paranoid, Ace
  24. People will think I'm paranoid: I wouldn't be but everyone keeps picking on me...... NIMH CHARGERS. Overlander RC6 VSR. Tried fast charging 6 volt 2500 nimh. My checker was showing red light, so 're charge. Plugged in, charging at .5 mah as per. After 25 minutes, RC6 says full.....No way jose. False peak. Cannot changer setting from default in delta peak setting on RC6. This week nimhs and charging have done my head in. It seems everybody else can do it.... See, paranoid....... Going back to my standard Futaba 300 mah wall charger..... Albert
