Re: Face Masks

Builders nightmare. I would imagine you need a jet of fresh air pumped in to keep them clear. I used to get in to all sorts of trouble at work for just wearing glasses and no mask. I figure it is more dangerous when you cant see.

Re: Prop size on a Zenoah 26 in a WW1 bipe?

After almost being killed by a plastic prop on a King 60 breaking in flight and sticking like a thrown knife in the ground behind me, I would urge caution with plastic props and nose overs. Look for cracks around the boss. I only ever use wood.

Re: Prop size on a Zenoah 26 in a WW1 bipe?

For a WW1 you dont need high pitch. A wooden 19x6 or 18x8 would be better. Always 50-1 oil mix, I use Rock synthetic as it is very clean. Nothing wrong with using a starter, there is a definite knack to starting a mag engine. Check the gap as Alan says, I use two pieces of computer printer paper. A ...

Most injuries ARE cuts, but for those who still use glow, have bottled water handy. Glow fuel can destroy eyeballs!

And of course please dont fly alone. We had one guy who cut himself and fainted. If a passer by had not spotted him he could have bled out.

Re: Carry a First Aid Kit.. And check its contents...

We keep one in the club pegboard box and another in the toilet. If you have nowhere to store one then everyone should keep one in their car. Its worth printing out the postcode and co-ordinates of your field in case you need ambulance or air ambulance, and directions and postcode of the nearest A&am...

Re: Flair 1/4 scale DR1 control throws?

Think I would try it before messing. I could never get enough aileron for a decent roll. The rudder mix is a good idea. Not sure about 50% though. Sounds a lot. Mine had a Z26 and it was not overpowered so I think you will need to fly it using height and diving for manouvres.

Re: Flair 1/4 scale DR1 control throws?

Always in to wind and its a pussycat. Landings are best with a bit of power on, although mine used to dead stick fine keeping the speed up. Cant remember the other stuff but it was sluggish on ailerons and sensitive to elevator.

Re: Zenoah 38 fuel mix and recomended oil.

I used to use Stihl but have now gone to Rok oil, fully synthetic. But you dont need 32-1. I have three Z38s two over ten years old and flown regularly that have always been run on 50-1. I put 100mill of oil in to a can, go to Morrissons and put 5 litres in the can.

Thanks to Andrew for hosting the fly in- finally got some decent weather Saturday and Sunday. Here is John Braithwaites huge Little Toot gracing the evening skies. John got to his 500th flight with this model on Sunday!
