Luke's threads have always been my favorites. Before seeing his work, I would just follow the build instructions. It never occured to me to study real planes and try to improve our models. Imagine my surprise when I first signed up on RCU and found this thread. I miss his pressence on this site.

Luke,

Just in case you check in on occasion, I just wanted to express my grattitude and best wishes. I tried to respond to your email from Sept, but it would not work.

Keith

You guys should give this guy (Luke) a break. He was kind enough to pass on some of his techniques. Just get over it and move on.
Realize he might be too busy earning a living or moved house. Life is too short.

Luke where ever you are "Best Wishes" mate.

I'm not here to bash him at all, Luke's a friend of mine and I need to get in touch with him.

I agree with all the positive comments in this and other threads.

Cheers

Hello Goose.................I tried myself too. I checked out "The Source", which used to be called Radio Shack. The only PCB they have has the perforations with copper. I bought a piece but it was useless. I wanted to use the stuff for my H9 horns. I asked friends who fly jets because I've seen it in Jet turbines, but it always comes as a kit. You might want to check it out at the Toledo show if you decide to go. I also was wandering if the TV repairing guys carry it. I looked all over for it especially electronic stores where they sell electronic parts. Comes perforated as a board.

Hey Garth...

I have a bear of a time finding stuff in Canada, guess I was somewhat spoilt back home.[:@]

Then this great resource called RCU is available and people like Kelsey come along and all is good.

Cheers!

Hi Goose ,
I got some of the PC board from a electronics equipment &supply store out of the yellow pages. The stuff I got was made by MG chemicals ,and it was called copper clad board out of Toronto, Ontario And the phone number on the pack is 1-800-201-8822.
If you can't get it directly from them they may know of a store they sell to that is near you.

Make sure it is Double sided copper clad board. The two packs I have are 6" x6" 1/16th thick and the Cat# 550

But check the electronic equipment & supplies- Whol & Mfrs in your yellow pages ,the store I got it from was a whole sale and distributor place .

Hope that helps

Joe

Goose..........I have the same problem up here in Canada. It took two to three weeks (from Great Hobbies) to get me a prop Hub for my H9 Corsair. At least four of my ordered items were not stocked. I ordered an extra H9 cowl for my Corsair, I received damaged and of poor quality (Chinese crap). It cost me $14.00 to ship it back. I might have to start dealing direct instead with this yoyos.


Kelsey...............thanks for the info.

Hmmmmm buddy wont ship to Canada...

Back to square one []

Garth... I have been dealing with GH since I got here, and apart from a couple of screwups, they have been my main source of stuff for 3 years.

Weird that you are having trouble.

Anyone got any of this PCB they wanna sell?

Cheers

Cool, thanks Dave...

That stuff is single sided, is there a need for double sided to build this tailwheel unit?

Goose...............I'm not having big trouble with GH but nowadays certain items don't get stocked. My H9 corsair cowl had to be ordered and it's not up to snuff and also my tru-turn hub had to be ordered. These back orders causes delays.
On top of that, the cowl had to be returned.

Goose,

You will need the double sided as it is necessary to solder to both sides of a part in some cases.

Hey Chad...

Thought as much, needed the confirmation.

I have to wonder if Canada opted out the Google thing, but I wont get into that long and heated discussion.

Joe, you the man.

Called them, found a local supplier, he has some in stock and I can afford it!

Picking it up tonight.

Cheers man

Hey Goose,
glad I could help. I have built a tailwheel for my GSTF corsair kit ,and I have to build another one for when I get the Corsair parts from Chad and build that one. I used a pencil torch when I made mine and had to make sure I didn't burn the board. But it worked out good.
Make sure you show your tailwheel install for the hanger 9 corsair in your thread,will help to take out the guess work for other if they want to try to do it too.

Joey............Thanks......a very good suggestion to Goose to show pictures of the making and installation of the tailwheel for the Hangar 9 F4U Corsair.

Goose.............please take pictures while you are at it. Making of the tail wheel and installation. Do you have a different thread for the H9 Corsair ?

Thanks guys, appreciate the info...

I do have a thread for my bash if you are interested, its [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8454945/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm]here...[/link]

The scale of the H9 is different between wing and fuse, so I am scaling my info to fit rather than squeeze or stretch to work.

Cheers

Dionysus,

Quick update: My tailwheel is 90% complete using my own design and Luke's techniques.

There is a short video [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlOEFtDUrxI]here...[/link]

Only change since then is to make it steerable.

Cheers

Quinoa, Dionysus (aka Luke), hasn't been updating here to my knowledge. We began a project with a blow up of the Royal Corsair here (Luke's idea)...and somehow it didn't work out as a group. He then started a build (on a different platform than RCU) with some hand picked fellas (unfortunately not me), and I'd tell ya if I knew, or if he communicated with me. If you want to find him and try to go that route on the Royal Corsair blow-up, by all means do it. If that doesn't work out, you are welcome to check out our thread on the 1/6th Royal Corsair project. It has in fact moved beyond the Royal plan in some areas, and continues to be a place to enjoy creative input design-wise (some guys are well ahead just using stock blown up Royal plans..and have framed). Feel free, as I say, to join us. If Luke is somehow lurking...than I say "hats off"! Best wishes

"1/6 Scale F4U Corsair Group Build " is the name of our project thread on RCU. I copied a link also..see if it works. Best 'o luck either way!

The 'other' project didn't survive for various reasons either.

Best you can do is walk through the threads saving out all the good stuff and go for it yourself.

Hopefully Luke shows up at some stage and shares some more modelling gems, but either way, it would be good just to have him around.

Best of luck

Goose
