Re: Reciever switches

A question.
If the multiplex safety switch continues to supply battery power to the rx if the mechanical switch fails, how does it sense the difference between being switched off, and switch failure?
Cheers

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

The whole document issued by the CAA is full of contradictions and mistakes. If they can't get this right, I don't trust them to hold my details secure.

Gigaset, Medion, TechniSat, are the only makes that affect the Spitfire (they are all German manufacturers) :D

You must be chuffed as punch! I think trying to work out the 3d geometry would have sent me to the funny farm.

Re: DB 1/4 scale Sopwiyh Pup & SE5

Rob, I love flying ww1 types and use aileron differential on all of my bipes. I also mix ail/rudder, but that's because I've got a lazy rudder thumb!

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Tony, I'm picking my daughter up from Stansted airport Monday evening. I'd be happy to pop in Monday afternoon and give you a hand with your transmitter. It's probably easier to show you rather than trying to write it down, and it'll only cost you a cup of tea! Cheers Steve 01698 811446 home 07802 4...

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Tony, if you can wait till next week, I'll see if I can write an easy to read guide for you. It's not too difficult, and the 9c has a pre-programmed flaperon function. This will need to be activated, and a flap to elevator p-mix set. As far as I remember, ailerons should be on Channels 1 & 5. Ch...

Re: new registration rebellion

Could the combined offices of the LMA and BMFA mount a legal challenge, citing the onerous burden and cost of running a duplicated system for no benefit, and the disregarding of the government's own (and E U) published guidance. There may also be a case that these regulations remove a freedom, and r...

Re: Electronics whizz needed, Oxfordshire area

Tim, I'm not sure how much room you have, but it may be an idea to look at linear servos operating as the rams.
I'm sure you'll get it sorted somehow, can't wait to see the finished article!

Re: 118 inch wingspan Lysander

Michael, I've used Savox SG-0211MG in flying surfaces with good results.

I have one on each aileron on a large Albatros C.iii, and I'm going to do the same on the Pfalz D.xii I'm building at the moment.

Re: Pfalz d.xii rib stitching

Thanks Tim, their forum is an Aladdin's cave of information. They even have a forum dedicated to the Pfalz d.xii
Following some of the links on their site I have got the info that's good enough for my purpose. Rib tapes on main ribs, nothing on riblets.

Pfalz d.xii rib stitching

Hi, the wings on my latest build have ribs, half ribs, and riblets. On these WW1 German types was stitching applied to all ribs, or just main and half ribs? I've got fairly good documentation, but no good pictures of the leading edge that resolve the fabric stitching.
Cheers
