RE: How are ARF's made?

I went to China twice last year and visited 7 ARTF factories in 3 different regions of China.

The quality standard of all but one was surprisingly high. All had CNC Laser cutting equipment and...

RE: NEEDED assembly manual Lancair Legacy

Hi Bob,

I have the manuals on pdf and will e-mail them to you. I have also included our "additional instructions" that may help a bit. But rest assured, this is a very easy plane to build and...

RE: Arf production question

Danny,

From what I saw during my visits they assemble the laser-cut parts dry first in the jig and THEN apply the glue. So you may not have seen glue in some of those pictures.

I have sold...

RE: ULTIMATE 40 - THE WORLD MODELS

Hi,

I have the WM Ultimate flying on a Saito 45 and it's overpowered with that so a 0.70 is waaaay too much power and too heavy.

RE: CMP F4U Corsair question

Hi Trubrit,

I have the CMP Corsair and Spitfire - standard servos (3001 or JR591) all round are fine. Obviously, if you are using mechanical retracts, you'll need a proper 180º retract servo...

RE: GSP Giles 202

Hi mnrcaerobat,

I made my servo arm from a scrap of 16g aluminium sheet. I used the original as a template and extended it about 3/8" either side.

I have some photos at work of my rudder...

RE: GSP Giles 202

I guess it goes without saying that you need a decent servo for the rudder. I'm using a JR 8401 Digital (11kg) which gives me loads of power. One reason I did this also was because I had to make a...

RE: GSP Giles 202

I've always pronounced it with a soft G as in the British "Upper Class Twit" type name (i.e. Giles Brandreth), so it actually sounds like Jiles.

No flying today on the UK south coast - too wet...

RE: GSP Giles 202

Hi mnrcaerobat,

I've been away for a while so couldn't reply to you, sorry.

Looks like you're doing all the right things though. I fly off tarmac, so the wheelpants (spats) are OK. Just...

So much choice - thanks for all the advice chaps. I've got to let this all sink in a bit first.

RE: Newbie advice please

Hi Kiwipaul,

So looking at your comments, I could build a combat plane and I guess just reduce the elevator throw and prop pitch to tame it down until I get some experience - is that correct?

Hi Chaps,

I have been flying R/C for years but have very little experience of Control Line (flew a simple profile model with a Cox .049 about 35 years ago).

RE: Anyone knows or owns the new GILES 202 -140 Jamara??

The plane weighs in at 11.5lbs so I doubt if a 1.08 2c or a 1.20 4c would pull it vertical. The 1.60 is perfectly suited and if you do a search on here for the CMPro Giles 202 1.40 you'll see that...

RE: Anyone knows or owns the new GILES 202 -140 Jamara??

I have the same one in Green from Flair in the UK - flies great with an MVVS 1.60 2-str and an 18x6 wood prop. Lands real slow. Mine has no tendancy to snap.

RE: OS52 On WILDCARD 3D FUNFLY ?

You'll be pushing it with a 52 four stroke I think, yes the Irvine was a 2-str.

If you want to go 4-str a 70 may be better albeit a bit heavier.
