...... or you could use these!
Not always, lots of different brakes & situations. Suck it & see!
M3 is right, alignment chews them as well, I has a UC leg twist on a crappy landing & by the
time the model had stopped the...
Asphalt eats tyres!
Your tyres will soon let you know if they are not up to the task.
Wheel alignment is more critical too but trike gear models are usually fine although the amount
I'm an aeroplane fan first & an engine fan second.
Although I do have a Wren 44, with the advancement in electric technology the 44 size engine
is right at the point where now I wouldn't know...
All this trim this, adjust that rubbish.
Using this flawed theory a taildragger will not land without bouncing at all. But they do!
learn to slow down & land at the correct speed.
I'd much rather change some broken retract parts than knife/saw/glue/patch/paint the alternative.
Very few problems with Robart or Spring Air retracts.
Yep, me too.
Retract servos (for mechanical retracts) & electric brakes run off my turbine battery on my BVM Sabre.
My next model will use the turbine battery for landing lights as well. It's...
A friend built this for his trailer, you could easily make one for your van.
Rolls in on wheels & has 2 retractable legs to support it when it pulls out.
I have to make new arrangements to...
I've just replaced the bearings in my 120 Surpass 3.
The piston pin removal was the most difficult part. I used a long self tapping screw that was just SLIGHTLY
larger than the hole in the...
I have had this happen on a couple of occasions with a Wren SS, usually on the ground after idling for some time.
This only began since the engine came back from Wren after a rebuild. I suspect...
I have noticed a lot of guys wearing the red tint, haven't used them myself so I cannot comment.
I don't think that colour tint is available for prescriptions & you would look like a bit of a...
Polarised prescription sun glasses were recommended to me by my optometrist for model flying.
Like David I couldn't see my radio screen or the instruments properly in my car.
I felt quite...
Yep, o.k. then.
I won't be attending the event!
Won't be bringing my FEJ F-14 with Jet Joe turbines either!
What an unbelievable thread! Any guesses on how many pages a thread banning
Is your trailer dual or single axle?
A single will turn in it's own length, drive it in forward, unhitch & then wheel it where you want it to live.
Back in to drag it out next day. Dual axle,...
People comment about me using my 'old' 36 MHz radio at the field and how you can be 'shot down' by someone on my frequency.
The only one on my frequency slot on the keyboard now is a spider!
Clearance around the engine?
As close as possible to nil. The air has to go THROUGH the engine, not round it.
The critical issue will be getting the warm air out. To do this you may have to...
A larger engine working easy will sound better & last longer anyway.
As an example I had a Gypsy Moth designed for a 40 4 stroke engine but I fitted an 80 size 4 stroke
because I had one...
Tom, I'd just email Wren in the UK, or Wren USA.
Not sure what's up, Wren USA are usually quite responsive via this forum.
Is this engine for Noel's new Reaction?
Two stroke, glow engines are the easiest & cheapest way to get a lot of power in the most compact, lightest package.
As a result any 4 stroke engine, particularly multi cylinder 4 strokes, would...
I'm sure his commander was impressed.
That's a lot of paint to remove with your toothbrush!
I spoke to Mark Frankel at Top Gun & he has built a Gulfstream & showed me a video of it flying.
He commented that it has a few bugs to sort out before/if he competes with it.
Kit or plans status...
Yes, I use 2000 mAh Eneloops in my 9X2 (same as the 9303) & have done so for many years since they were first released.
I use a peak detecting Sky RC Ultimate 200W X2 charger on the ni-mh setting...
One tip I found on a forum somewhere is to let the rattle
cans sit for a while in hot water prior to spraying.
The warm paint is a little thinner & goes on easier with a better finish.
Thanks Ricko, am I correct in assuming the airflow, along with the slight amount of friction on the front
plate hold the canopy back & secure?
That's it in a nutshell Dave, one tool too...
