CAA Operator I.D...what did we pay for

All The CAA have today issued ORS4 1345 which superseeds 1332 which required us to all have an operator I.D to make our models legal from 23rd Feb 2020. This new ORS4 has now put the date back to 30th June, which is the proposed date for the new EASA regulations to come into play. With no requiremen...

Operator ID

Hi All I have received my Operator ID (Thank you LMA) and in reading all the supporting documentation it does seem to imply that I only need to put my ID on all my models that weigh between 250g and 20kg. It does not seem that I need to put the number on any of my models that weigh over 20kg. Is thi...

Re: Twin receivers

Hi Ian I have to disagree that you have "true redundancy" With all 4 batteries connected to just one positive and 1 negative "rail" if you have a servo go short (see previous comments) it will pull the power from all 4 batteries and you will still have a problem. It would be bett...

Re: R35 Cup

Hi Steve

Interesting idea but can you provide more info on the R35 Frenzy aircraft. A quick Google search did not reveal anything so I do not know what sort of model it is?

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.
