Re: IS THIS CHOCKEY BOOTH IN DISGUISE ?

Hi Andy, that makes sense now. I'm also not very keen on heights and wont stand near the edge in tall buildings etc but dont have a problem in a plane/helicopter. Was nice to see LLundy from a different view, we can see it nicely if the weather is nice whilst at Belle Vue, one of our gliding friends...

Re: IS THIS CHOCKEY BOOTH IN DISGUISE ?

Well I watched the programme and found it quite entertaining, and if you think about it thats what the programme is, entertainment. Ok, I found it a little belittling to have the gliders described as toys but there you go. When you consider that most of the audience probably are not as informed abou...

Re: buyer/seller beware

Cheques are also good for me as a sole trader, most of my customers pay by cheque and a lot of them are elderly so dont do electronic payment. I dont want a credit/debit card machine as it adds to my costs, costs I then would pass onto the customer. Vince, try the Co-op bank, as a sole trader I can ...

Re: Which Charger

John I have the Quad 4 charger as does Ivan and I use mine on either 12v or 240v with an external power supply, I find it great for what I do, often charging 2 x 3 or 4s lipos of around 4000mah and a couple of 6v 4100mah nimhs at the same time. If just charging nimhs the 12v supply is fine even wuth...

Re: Electric Concorde

Andy I doubt you will see Concorde at any shows in the near future as Ivan created it mainly for his own enjoyment and as a technical challenge and it is still undergoing upgrades and more testing. It does need a concrete/tarmac runway which rules out a lot of sites and as the committee have scrappe...

Re: Greenley wing balsa or foam?

Have to put you right here Peter, the Greenley was originally designed as a trainer for Johns wife but over the years it has got progressively bigger. The Greenley/Lowley evolved as a large model trainer and flies very well on a Z38 without the need for much church roof if built carefully, the SD Gr...

Re: Greenley wing balsa or foam?

Gary

Last time I spoke to Sid he could not make anymore wings due to problems getting the veneer so I made the built up Greenley wing, its a piece of cake to make and I am sure you wont have any problems. Have you downloaded the free plan from the Scale Soaring website?

Re: 1/2 scale Tiger Moth

Dennis, I have recently fitted a Glens Models conversion to my Z62 and its easier to start than the...

Re: Building A Mosquito?

Phil The builder just likes to build light aircraft I suppose and being electric I believe there are only a limited amount of motors out there that would power a heavy version without serious amounts of money being involved. He has built several large electric aircraft around the 30 to 40lb weight a...

I do know of someone building a 1/4 scale Mozzy from his own design, ribs/formers etc are all cad designed and cut out and its designed for electric, still in the build stage but hoping to have it finished by Xmas.

Z62 Cutting Out Problem

I have an old Z62 which was secondhand when I got it around 20yrs ago. It was fitted to a Super Duper Greenley used for glider towing and on a tow with the engine flat out it would suddenly stop after around a minute and a half, back on the ground it would start ok but do the same next time round.

Re: Engine import from Hong Kong.

Tony I bought a 100cc twin from China and did pay some duty etc, only saved around £70. Then came the downer.......didnt run well which was traced to a faulty carb, the motor didnt come with a warranty as I bought it direct from the supplier and it cost me another £80 for a carb. So, after that it w...

Re: Giant Models at Public Shows

The reasons behind solo slots, I think, is straight forward to understand. One of the other points the original letter highlighted was the amount of slots some pilots get regardless of solo slots or flying with others. Now, if you take one aircraft you would probably expect to get two slots per day ...
