    XPerience Pro Ballast

    Nigel, Could any of this be of use to you? Front row; Ballast tube, takes 16mm slugs, snug fit. Second row; 16mm ballast set for Maxa, on a rod, secured with allen screws. Third row; 19mm Ballast set for Explorer? 4th, 5th & 6th rows; 16mm ballast sets for Xpro & Shadow, on nylon cord for easy removal. I've no idea of value, so no sensible offer refused! Mike

    BARCS-ELG 28thApril 2019

    Hi Pete my usual 2m and open please many thanks
  7. Hi all My first post here but just wanted to say what a great event the come and try event was. Thanks for organising Mike Having the world champion tell me my launching was crap was the highlight of my DLG career and as a result it got much better. Thanks to Vincent for a very enjoyable and very informative day, I leave a better DLG flyer than when I arrived. I could only make the saturday but to be honest I think the DLG part of my brain was pretty much full after that anyway, it'll take me while to try and practice the theory I have learnt Here's a few pics of the day.. and there's a short video here which includes Vincent's demonstration of looking for lift in which he slope soars off the BMFA shed roof BARCS F3K 'Come And Try' Event 2019 - a DLG clinic with Vincent Merlijn Chris (the guy with the orange Blaster)
  8. If only I was 1% as cool as he is Great event, great weather. thanks to everyone.....

    Ballasting a Shadow 2.

    Thanks for your replies. My Shadow weighs in at 1500g empty so i'll try 300g of ballast using the self adhesive weights and the s/s bar that i already have. When ballasting is it advisable to move the CoG a few mm forward ?, it's currently set around 117mm.

    Come and try DLG Easter Weekend Sat Sun 20-21 APR

    I also want to say thanks to all that organised the event and those who helped the newcomers like me. I was only there on the Saturday - really enjoyed it and benefitted from the advice. It has encouraged me to persevere with DLG. Working on the half throws that we did with Vincent seems like a really good idea. I've got to learn the short snappy movement (I think that years of cycling has developed a different, slower kind of muscle memory). Justin

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

    And me... thanks Neil, see you there.
  13. For Sale – Amokka 1 Moulded Flying Wing from Peter Wick The Amokka is a fully moulded flying wing designed and produced by Peter Wick. It’s smooth and fast model to fly and tracks well even in strong or blustery conditions. The controls are progressive without needing to use large control throws. The Amokka is aerobatic and will happily withstand long dives and high speed passes without significant flex or twist. This model was made in Peter’s personal moulds and is not a commercial production model. The strength of the airframe is very good (as you will see from the attached links, the model can be used for lightDS). The paint and surface finish of the wing is not the same as commercial production model but this does not effect the flying performance and can’t be noticed if you are more than a few feet away from the model. Specification:- - Wing span: 1.96m - Wing area: 37.83dm2 - Wing section: Peter Wick (4 different sections across the wing) - Aspect ratio: 10.15 - Weight: around 1750g The model comes with:- - 2x MKS 6125 servos on the ailerons - 2x MKS 6100 on the flaps - 1x Jeti 2600mah Li-Ion battery - 1x Zepsus switch and regulator - Custom made bags for the wing and fin - Settings information All you need to do is fit your RX and fly. £400 ONO If you fly Jeti, I will happy send you my transmitter file I used to fly the model and am offering to include a Jeti R9 Receiver with the model for £40. It’s too hard to post. I’d be happy to meet at the Bwlch at a weekend or somewhere on the M4 corridor between London and Bristol during the week. Alternatively it may be possible to get the model to you via the F3F postal service. For more information please visit:- https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?940412-Amokka-Race-Plank/page5

    XPerience Pro Ballast

    Hi Nigel When I used to find my ballast was slightly small, I used to wrap two pieces of electrical tape around each "slug" that usually worked, and cured the rattling at the same time Don't forget you'll probably need a couple of wooden dowels of "slug length" and another couple "half slug length" ones to use to keep the CG where it should be....... I used to measure the length/depth of my ballast tube with 3/8ths wooden dowels a half metre long I've had two Expro's over the years and never found the need to use ballast with either though. odd....... Hope this helps Regards Pete BARCS1702
  15. I did bring my camera but I was too busy basking in the sun, taking all the flying in and left without grabbing any pics. Was a brilliant weekend, gutted I didn't have plane or stayed for both days. Hopefully next year same weather same good times.
  16. What a great weekend! Thanks to MikeF for arranging. Thanks to Vincent and shady for coming and Neil for bringing him over I really enjoyed helping the newer flyers. There were two guys that I spent a fair bit of time with and in both cases the setups were quite a ways off where they should be. They required some fairly major adjustments in cg and launch and flap settings. I would suggest this is something we spend some time having a look at on an individual basis. It can make a world of difference!

    Come and try DLG Easter Weekend Sat Sun 20-21 APR

    Shady is the man, I’m sure he videoed the entire weekend I have asked him for a loaded USB stick.
  19. I'm away for the weekend, back home Wednesday, I'll catch up on challenges then as the internet connection here is dreadful - phone signal too, its wonderful Wylands fishing
  20. It would be great to get some pictures of the action at the weekend up here.

    XPerience Pro Ballast

    Hi Austin, Thanks for the information, stock bar comes as 16mm or 5/8in as I do not have a lathe to size the bar exactly only a Dremel to shape the ends, do you think that buying the 16mm bar would work OK? Can you tell me what length the slugs are when finished and how many the ballast tube will except? Thanks in advance Nigel
