Re: Small electric flight

Suart, Dave, Simon, Many thanks gentlemen for your collective response. The aeroplane is a CenturyUK Cessna 182, which, when I bought it, some time ago used a smaller battery with 7 cells. This model is now quoted as using a 9.6 volt 8 cell battery. The [u]liklihood is that the speed controller is t...

Small electric flight

Can anyone help with the diagnosis of a small electric flight problem. With a brand new fully charged battery the prop spins at a slower speed than required for flight and then packs up altogether after a few moments. It will restart, then does the same thing.

Re: OS 40

Hi Tony, Im trying to tune an older moodel OS40, ( before the FS max series,) and I dont think it is delivering enough Rpm / power. This is the engine you flew for me at Binham, which was since set up by an `expert` The two screw adjustments on the carb are difficult to set up in sympathy. I dont ha...

Re: Engine Capability

Thank you Mr Cantwell for your good intentions, I welcome any help I can get. I have had a 25% J3, but severly bent it and am in the process of perhaps acquiring another somewhat smaller. What specifically are the problems with Cubs that you had in mind for this learner. :)

Re: Protecting your plans during Building

4001:- Advised by Rymans that they no longer do the self adhesive transparent Book covering ( Plan covering ) materiel, as mentioned recently by Barry. Anyone know anywhere else that still does it to cover a Plan 80 inches by 30 inches
