Wren Gas Start Parts

I've picked myself up a neat little Wren 54 Turbine with only a small number of hours on it. A little problem is that it did not come with the gas starting solenoid, or the external gas cannister...

RE: Australian BBQ and Beers (All Welcome) - Part IV

Mostly scale stuff, it's my most favourite leaning. So I have a P40, Cessna 310 (the superb topflite ARF), AT6 Texan, Bearcat and a Hurricane. There's a P47 on the building board, it's a Topflite kit...

RE: Walkera 60B collective pitch problem

Ooops, can that request, I just managed to press the ball off the shaft. When the walkera assembly chimpanzee mounted the rotor head, they applied a little loctite to the fixing. They also managed to...

RE: Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

I've got a plentiful supply of 20 percent nitro fuel from my YS 110 engine I use in my RC aircraft. I like how the little 'uns go with a fair drink of nitro too....

I ran her in today by running...

RE: Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

It is pretty simple, better with two people however.

The new engine is a real bear, usually quitting after putting the top on, doing up the clips and then rushing to the water's edge hopefully...

RE: Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

I was a little confused by your location.... :)

Enjoy your time in UnZud, look out for the rogue kiwis too!

I love that country and it's people, real salt of the earth.

RE: Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

Ahh the learning curve, she's steep!
Cheers to all, that's great advice, I'll give it a go today.

I'll have a dig around and see if I can get a good picture of the underhand toss technique,...

RE: Nitro Fuel - Newbie Query ?

That's a good example of the old school thought processes you still get from time to time. I can remember people getting all hot under the collar at the thought of castor oil making way for modern...

RE: Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

The shaft measurement (taken across a non threaded part of the shaft) is 4mm. The rear face of the shaft support tapers down to 10mm, the propeller diameter is 1.5 inches exactly, the pitch I cannot...

Proud noob to the nitro boat scene would like to learn about trimming a boat!

G'day Guys,

I'm actually a drop in from the RC Aircraft side of the hobby (20 years this year in fact!), but thought I may like to dabble with my son in a fast RC boat.

I trawled around the...

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

Adding a spring from a retractable ball point pen seemed to be an essential addition to the air valve, it stopped a leaking (yet brand new) seal rather nicely.

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

I sure did. It was a juggernaut however.

Plenty of time to build up speed, but nothing that you couldn't predict. Kinda like a real one I suspect.

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

Yeah well, I bit hte bullet and picked up an SPE 26cc as my first gas engine...

Shame to leave the lovely sounding 4 stroke behind on this one, but that 1.25 kg (2.75 lb's) of lead has to go!

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

I believe I will make a move towards my first gas engine to try and give this girl a bit more motivation.

It flies fine if a little conservatively with the Saito 125 and that lump of lead, but...

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

Yep, sure is nose weight, and that's what it will take to get the CofG correct with a Saito 125 (or similar 120). That's what you get with a short nose moment fiberglass aircraft.

Yeah some of...

Yeah you know that is as I remembered it as well. Exactly as you described. I've got the four cross bars, two of which have a drilled hole. Now from what I can see there is a shoulder machined onto...

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

Did I read something somewhere about the gear being adjustable for side to side movement? ie. the backlash between rotating mechanism and the side rails?
