Re: red led on esc

Think I've sorted it out. Reprogrammed throttle range using the prog card, now led stays on all the time. :roll:

Re: Kalt 22 cc anyone recommend a Sport biplane for this?

Jabbawock, https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/ja ... cba1185463

I've built 2 larger ones (giant jabbawock). Great fun. The larger ones had zenoah 38 power, but a 22 would be great in the original size.

Try Halfords, they do puncture repair kits, and they also do plastic etch primer (for car bumpers).

Re: esc extension

Many thanks all. It's just a pipe dream at the moment, but my experience with large electric so far has been encouraging, and I do love the ww1 planes!
So far: 1/4 scale Albatros C.iii, 1/4 scale Pfalz D.Xii, and DH 9a on the building board. :D

esc extension

I'm aware battery cables to the esc shouldn't be extended without a capacitor bank, but is it ok to extend esc to motor cables. Looking forward a long way I'd like to build either a hp 0400 or a vickers vimy. The weight of the batteries would need to be as far forward as possible, in the fuselage no...

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

As I understand it, pilot a would be prosecuted for allowing the flight, and pilot b for carrying out the flight. It may be that both are charged with one offence as "joint enterprise". If the video of the illegal flight was posted on YouTube, and the FTC thought it might appeal to childre...
