Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

Interesting point guys. Exemption 1331 states in para 3 that you must carry a copy of the exemption along with proof of competency. "A copy of this exemption, along with a copy of the relevant documents (membership and award certificate)referred to in paragraph 2 above must be carried by the re...

Re: Bucker Student

Dougie Diatex 1000 is what you need. As stated in my previous post I use heat active glue to apply it as it is much easier than using the "cement" they recommend. On my vintage gliders I use Epifanes varnish on the sheeted (ply) parts and doped Diatex on the open structures but if the shee...

Re: Bucker Student

Dougie Rather than doped nylon I suggest you use Diatex, available from Skycraft Ltd, Spalding. We use Diatex 1000 on all our fabric covered models. It is a heat shrink fabric that we attach to the structure with a heat activatable glue (Balsloc or similar). Once covered and tightened with gentle he...

Re: Bucker Student

Thanks for that John, the servo is programmable so I can set everything up exactly as I need to prevent bind or slop. :D Doug A programmable servo will not help with binding or slop. It is important that the geometry of the horns is correct. The easiest way to do this is make a copy of the rudder h...

Re: quietest canisters

Elliot Whilst at the glider fair in Germany earlier this year I was very impressed with 2 tugs that were very quiet. One was fitted with a DLE 111 and the other with a DLE 222. Both were fitted with MJM silencer cans and headers. I had not come across this company before but it is worth investigatio...

Re: Bucker Student

Doug

Close loop direct to the servo is the way to go. Just make sure the geometery of the arm on the servo and the rudder are the same to avoid binding or slop in the cables as the servo moves.
