  1. yes please it will fit a gap in the hanger nicely
  2. Peter, Thanks for the tip i shall have a look thanks,
  3. Doug,  funny you should say that about the post office thats exactly how i found out what they weigh. Your problem with the UC wire i used to have a home made pipe bender although it was a pipe bender it would bend anything round down to 1mm dia, very simple to make costs about 3-4 pound in parts and will last your life time have the plan somewhere on a PDF could dig it out if you were interested? Hope you get it covered soon looking forward to seeing it complete, and no i haven't seen this months mag yet you must subscribe and get it earl as its not in my local till 29th unfortunaley will be interested to see it though as i want to tackle a acrobatic model at soon time soon at the mo its a CAP also by Peter but a second wouldn't hurt! or a third or forth lol. Regards Alex.
  4. a penny weighs an 1/8th of an ounce 3.5 grams cant help with the pounds though althought 2p pieces weigh 7grams so you could recalculate using these two coin configurations hope it helps lovely model by the way when funds allow i WILL finish mine!
  5. will be watching keenly the same kit is on my wish list so will be joining you quite soon i hope good luck Alex
  6. well that was short and sweet lol
  7. Yorkman, Guess its just personal choice i would rather use the spare reciver packs i have take them with me mainly fcause i could lose my head if it wasnt attached so loads of dry cells floating about i know it would happen. And its very easy to do. Regards Alex
  8. hi, i know it might sound a little silly but my friend had a "park Fly" and had similar problems in the end it was the prop it was on backwards hence there was no power to climb /recover from anything just a thought for you. Alex
  9. Shaun, Very pleased for you mate you must be made up with how they turned out unfortunately i c ant watch the footage on my prehistoric pc but sure its good smiles all round. lol Just been looking at these beauties on the link you gave see what you mean they really are good value for what you get wish there were more manufacturers/retailers that would follow suit. Regards Alex
  10. Craig, There is a excellent thread on batteries on here written by Timbo have a look it will answer your questions, Alex
  11. Craig, Glad you found it help full let me know how you get on when the time comes ill be doing mine once warranty expires and will posts some pics if others will benifit from it. Regards, Alex.
  12. Craig, Your spot on with that but like you say it is how the set is designed so the BMFA would be unfair in my opinion to say the set couldn't be used. And i think the issue with dry cells is more orientated towars flight packs for rx and alike. Its also an issue that with the dry cells if you think about it theres 8 contact points for 4 batterys thats 8 possible problems as opposed to 1 if fitted with a pack. Its down to personal choice personally at the min im leaving as is after the warranty has run out then i will go to packs as it might sound alot but is very simple to do and its takes any chance of mixing charged not charged dry cells together. But as i say thats just my opinion you must do as you feel All the best Alex
  13. Craig, I have thought of doing the same at some stage myself, i havent any pics that will help at the minute but when i come up with some thing i will post them on for you. When you say remove the clips what do you mean? If you are refering to the two battery connection strips inside the bat cover then yes these have to come out so a pack can fit in. So what you would need to do is take out the exsiting batterys then unscrew the transmitter case shows you how in the instructions if your not sure. Disconnect the red and black wires from the contact strips the strips now need to come out. Once they have been removed you will need a FEMALE plug for the battery pack to plug into (if you have a spare switch harness you can use the one off that) and connect that to the wires observing polarity of course. You can now put it back together poke the new plug through into the battery bay. connect your new pack and off you go. In terms of pacck selection thats really up to you and depends how much you want to spend would suggest some thing around 2000 mah to give decent duration between charges remember the only real benifits of doing this job as i see it is charging and changing the bats is easier and it is slightly better asd theres less conection points for there to be any problems with. Now lipo, you need a 2s pack and a 6v regulator. Its a nice idea but given the size of the batt bay without major modification it just wont fit and thats just the bat you would have to house the regulator internally as well!!!!
