    2nd hand market, in general

    Hi Tony Yes, a Cassiopea, I had one years ago, sported little winglets on the tip panels.....I think Chris Foss had a hand in them before he started importing Starlights......enough history? I've got a couple of similar projects in the loft.....a Muller Escape and another Pike come to mind......how did the chap finally come to the price of £40.00 though, I wonder.....questions questions........ Not worried in the slightest what it is? I'll stop bothering you about it then Regards Pete BARCS1702

    The fuselage is very much like that of my Vega TS, which I believe was a Neville Mattingly design. However, my wings are 100” and foam core veneered.

    There's a busted glider on the BMFA site going very very cheap for a Winter project

    Longshot1 setup advice

    To be completely honest just use the J Frickman program, it saves hours of time and is far better than any program I have used before. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2578134-F3K-program-for-Taranis-QX7-and-X9D-with-scripts-for-score-keeping-and-graphing

    I'm not worried in the slightest what it is. I like the idea of finding about it's history it's gives it a bit of character

    Hi SP This particular investigation was undertaken at Tony's request, as you'll see from re-reading Tony's posts .finding out what it is is "literally driving him nuts" he says I agree it's a "bitsa" but, as has happened in this case the search has been quite fruitful for people who know their Algebras For myself earlier this year I've turned three heaps of wreckage that used to be Pike Superior airframes into one I have yet to fly this year, it has given me a lot of pleasure in doing this and I'll be very happy to do a write up on the maiden flight later this year......I like doing stuff like this, it's not doing anyone else any harm and it's giving me a lot of pleasure It doesn't need much in the way of skill but I personally find doing it quite fulfilling Regards Pete BARCS1702

    I don't think you understand his psyche if you are telling him not to get worked up over it, he wants to know ...... because he wants to know

    I wouldn't get too worked up over what model it is... It could be anything. It could have started as something then morphed into something else, be it following damage repairs or just plain (plane ) old trying to improve performance. The ability to customise an airframe is a skill I wish I had. Don't you think that it's all part of the beauty of kit building (or even scratch building)? Tony

    Another good DLG setup video from Maat, very precise build/work which really helps to make things clear:

    Looking for sd100 servos

    Another good place to get servos and other stuff from - Phoenix Model Products Stan has no SD100s at the moment thought as Ripmax don't have stock - he suggests Blue Birds as an alternative.

    Hi Tony Great to meet you at Buckminster today, and thanks for the book and the plan. Hope you enjoy the Eliminator 100" as much as I did As you say, great chinwag, good to see "Murky" Knights as well, I hope he didn't tell you too much about me and my career in BARCS comps, that might have been really embarrassing! and YES I did manage to get home without incident - but only just(!) as my eyelids were starting to droop a bit as I drove past Old Warden Keep well, and do take a close-up shot of that fin/rudder tip for us....I'm almost as irritated as you that we can't identify the what the b*gg*r is! Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Looking for sd100 servos

    No rush Tony... seriously take your time, I appreciate the effort.
  18. Just flown an Explorer BF with the recommended DYS 70A esc fitted and a separate sbec. All day session with lots of launches with absolutely no problems. Bench testing the setup showed an increase in esc temperature of just 6 degrees C for a 30 sec motor run drawing around 40 amps. Even with the esc inside a very tight fuselage with little air flow the esc stayed cooler than other large ESC's I have used. Throttle response was very smooth and linear. Saved around 30 grams of nose weight with the new setup. Thanks for sharing the information on these ESC's Thermalboy - I really think this is a major step forward. All the best Steve

    Sorry, my internet connection has been down until now and I've been at the BMFA centre all day. I'll get back to you in the next couple of hours. Cheers, Tony
  20. What an absolute cracker Ben! Good luck with her and please keep us posted on your progress. Tally Ho! Cool site as well m8 Marc

    Kindness begets Kindness. I was at the BMFA/SAMs swap meet today really trying to sell off all my Free Flight models and paraphernalia as my health won't let me play anymore. It's funny what you think will sell well, then doesn't. So I ended up at the end of the day with two F1G Competition models designed and built by myself that were my absolute pride and joy and nobody wanted them apart from a slight interest from a chap whom I've already forgotten his name unfortunately. I ended up practically giving them to him with a stooge, F1B winder, a pound of rubber, a tracker, a scanner and God knows what else. I knew that he would fly them and more importantly enjoy them as much as I have. Then a young Mr Beadle turns up after driving for two hours to solely to give me an Eliminator 100". Hopefully you'll read this when you're safely home. Really appreciated what you did today Pete and I really enjoyed our chin wag having never met before. Hopefully I'll see you up at the Beacon with her. All in all a bl**dy good day and it's always nice having a chat with like minded people. And I'm still no closer to identifying the model above! Tony
  22. Thanks for all the great advice guys, and I will take on board the idea of measuring three times before cutting! Top tip oipigface! Mikeb52 - Great recommendation. I've watched that LDS install on flightcomp's YT channel a couple of times now and kitted myself out with Microballons as well as a few other bits to complete the install. I'm going to use the LDS that Baudis supplied (I went with the double LDS option) and go carefully. The finish is so perfect right now I'm definitely going to take it steady. I'll add some more pics as I go - as long as thesis the right forum for that of course. Ah also the elevator is a HBL6625, not a 6125 Cheers

    Wizard Compact BPV X-Tail + Glider Bag

    I've received some messages asking for additional images, including of the underside. So, here they are! This is in very good nick! A few scuff marks un on the underside of the nose from landings, but otherwise very clean and free of dings/hanger rash....
  24. Indeed, what a beauty! Look for a great how-to on YouTube. It’s called flightcomp, and it shows a LDS install on a Infinity F5J model. I used that as a basis for the install on my Jedi lift, and pitbull 2. But there are vastly more experienced guys than me on here if you need any advise.
  25. And what a first moulded model it is too All the best with the build. What a stunner.
  26. Nice colour scheme. The fuselage looks a bit slimmer than pictures I've seen before.

    New arrival - Baudis Skywalker 3.8m

    You’re just trying to make us all envious, but welcome to the forum anyway! Pierre Rondel has a number of build logs on his Planet Soaring site. I’m pretty sure you will find tips how to do it there somewhere. The only advice I would give you is not to cut or glue anything until you’ve checked at least three times that it is what you want. In particular, make sure that servos are operating the right way round and that they are offset (or centred) correctly. The voice of experience speaks.
