Re: Lavochkin LA7

Its at the back of the workshop Stuart. I really must get it finished. Its a long story but owing to the P47 getting passed around, it has suffered bits missing/broken etc. I cant muster the enthusiasm for it just at the mo . . . The ridiculously large Gee Bee has had a flight tho !!

This is a long shot, but does anyone have, or know of the whereabouts of a Scalewings LA7 ? This is a discontinued composite kit to nearly 1/3rd scale . . . I'm on the lookout for either new/unstarted, crash-damaged, or retired airframe ? anything considered . . would be interested in any other mode...

Re: Evolution 260cc radial problems.

Sorry to hear this Barry . . Heard it running at Winterton and it sounded so sweet . . . I have dealt with UMS in India directly and found them to be very helpful. My enquiry was with regards to a hydraulic conversion set to pneumatic retract set up, but I think they will be equally helpful regardin...

Re: Walbro Fuel Inlet. Removeable?

its a tricky job stuart but can be done. the plastic nipple is pressed onto a splined brass spindle. dont try to twist it as it will probably split open. grip well and pull upward, reposition and press down until it clicks into position. Hope it helps . .

Re: new registration rebellion

As I see it, the biggest headache from this is that the *authorities* or whoever is responsible for nuisance unmanned drones, or otherwise, will not seperate them from our model aircraft operation, either within a club or otherwise. As we have all been classed as one group, then real problems for us...

Re: new registration rebellion

Hang on a minute Paul - don't reach for the rope just yet ! I think that we need to convince the powers that be to positively seperating drone aircraft (particularly FPV types) from ordinary model flying type aircraft. From my experience, it can be noted that club members who have had a dabble with ...

Re: advice please Walbro carb choke lever

No problem if the choke is servo operated, but swapping the spindle will result in the machined groove not engaging with the spring loaded ball that keeps the choke open whilst the engine is running I think . . . .

Speaking as a large model !! . . I have always felt the need to change my attire before calling in the pub on the way home from a days flying !!
