Thanks i...

Alex,another thing that you should be praised for ,is the quality of the photographs,please dont say they are taken on a mobile phone.I suspect that a lot of our members saw the 'Spitfire factory',what surprised me was the fact that when the Greek owners came to view their £2.5 million Spitfire,they...

Re: Impending balsa shortage.

It was used to line the inside of fuel tanks on aircraft in WW2 and to line liqued gas tankers.So I think our toys have always been way down the list of preferd users.

prop rotation electric twin

I am looking at the front of the model,does the left motor rotate clockwise or anti clockwise.I want to use the ability of an electric motor to run in either direction, to avoid swing at take off,also less effect if power setups are not identical.Thank you in antisipation,as they say.
