    BMFA F3K Event #1 - 27th April 2019 - Twywell

    I will be working that Saturday unfortunately. I work one in three Saturdays and I can't make this one. See you on the next one.
  3. No real hard programme is possible I'm afraid because we need to stay flexible. The above post stands and I want to have a lunch break with a presentation session and an afternoon tea break with another sit-down session. Check in at the hangar for the latest news and timings. If you're not getting the info you want - tell us in good time and we'll do our best to get you what you need.
  4. I booked in with Manny ages ago, I'll be there both days. Weather's looking great, especially for some evening free flight. Got a new scale model to trim...

    Ballasting a Shadow 2.

    Flew my new Shadow 2 in the wind today for the first time and I’m thinking that some ballast would really help. My original idea was to use a 12mm x 3mm stainless steel bar with some self-adhesive lead weight strips attached, then slid down the fuselage and fastened in place by a bolt at the rear of the canopy. This would work but things are going to start to get bulky and messy at around 300g of ballast using the self adhesive lead weights, I’m wanting to keep the form factor of the ballast bar as slim as possible to aid it's installation in the gap between the Rx and fuse. Just wondering what you guys are using as a denser alternative to lead for ballasting ?. Thanks.
  11. Hi All, I have a small dlg. I want to fly with it. Do you know any place where can I fly near to Wolverhampton? Thanks Csaba

    Been having trouble posting, Austin is looking into it. More wing sanding, there is no end! Is it me or does the former look like a surprised cat in this diagram?!

    Well, I'm really glad that I decided to remove the servo tray and battery mounts, they fell out without a fight. A sheet of lead under the motor came out just using a fingernail. Surplus blobs of epoxy were removed from other places so now I have a totally blank canvas. The ply plate for the receiver seems fairly well attached, it only has to carry 10 g, left well alone.
