Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Steve, I have tried calling you on home phone number and it is not recognised. Tried your mobile and could not get a reply. Received call from you on mobile but all quiet when I answered.

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Yes, I do have the manual Pete but thanks for the link. I always found the manual rather confusing when I was a lot younger

Cheers Tony.

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Thanks a lot Steve, that's very kind of you. I Want to be able to operate the aileron plus flap as one aileron and then select flap when I need it. I have just rebuilt my twenty year old Stik and aim aiming to modify it to have ailerons split for flaps as it comes in too quickly for me. I need it to...

Re: Which battery type

Thanks for that lads. I once saw a model sitting all by itself suddenly go up in flames. This was at Baldock North London club and some on here may remember it. My model is the Ultrafly Outrage which is from way back although the kit is untouched. It is a 3D model , not that I am going to be able to...

Re: Convair YF2Y-1 Sea Dart

Hi Alex. There are loads of adds on ebay for different types and sizes of sleeving/tubing. Most to suit you are 3mm ID so can you go to a 3mm rod? If not I have found one with 2mm ID and here is the link. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2mm-ID-4mm-Tube-OD-PTFE-Tube-1M-for-3D-Printer-1-75mm-Filament-J2U6/...

Re: Warped wings

What are the wings covered with Bob . How was the.covering shrunk. I left an eight foot model in small pop up tent once and it was a roasting day. They warped quite a lot but I devised a system which got them straight again. Cut a piece of wood about 3/8 to1/2" thick and twice the length of the...
