Re: Carbon wing tube and sleeve

Thanks Ken. I know Easy Composites well. They do plenty of suitable carbon tube for the actual joiner. Its the outer tube thats the problem. It only needs to be a thin walled fibreglass material. The carbon tubes from Easy composites will nest OK, but using another carbon tube for the outer is overk...

Carbon wing tube and sleeve

Does anyone know where to buy a carbon wing tube and matched sleeve in the UK? I want one around 35 - 40mm diameter but I cannot find a UK supplier on the web. Plenty of aluminium and phenolic ones but not carbon. I could make my own outer but would rather buy one.

cheers Dave.

Re: M2 Left hand thread screws

Thanks for the offer. I have managed to make the threaded rod, I got my LH die from RDG tools as well!! The nuts would be useful though. Perhaps you can make me 6 or so (if its worth your while). Let me know. Material is not too important, whatever you are going to use yourself would be ok as its fo...

Re: M2 Left hand thread screws

Thanks.

Nothing on Mick Reeves's site that fits the bill unfortunately. Ordered a die to try and cut it myself but if anyone knows would still be interested!!

M2 Left hand thread screws

Does anyone know where to buy M2 left hand threaded screws / bolts / rod? I want to make a turnbuckle but cannot find one long enough in M2. I have a centre of the turnbuckle that will do the job and I can make the right hand threaded part OK from some normal threaded rod but the left hand thread pa...

Re: 1/5th OV 10 Bronco

Chris. I used to have a YT bronco of similar size, converted to electric, weighing in at around 38 lb flying weight. I used electron retracts, the er50 versions. I also use these on my current 1/5 scale tucano (er50) and my long time owned YT thunderbolt (er40). The thunderbolt in particular has bee...

Re: Various Spinners For sale

Have to say though that its no where near scale for a P-51. I think that why I originally bought it and never used it.

OK

I have given it a clean with acetone to remove the mold release but suggest you do it again before painting for your own piece of mind.

Send me an email or PM and we can discuss terms!! :)
