  4. Hi Folks, I am hoping to convert a Nan Shadow glider fuselage to electric. I already have the motor/gearbox and necessary hardware, and am at the point of chopping off the nose. I haven't done a conversion before, or even flown F5J but do fly F3J. What is causing me to hesitate is that there is quite a hook on the nose of the Shadow glider fuz, which puts the thrust line quite a bit lower than the wing, as well as giving it a slightly down-ward pointing nose. Has anyone out there any experience with this type of conversion and can you give me any advice on what thrust line to give the motor?

    Radioglide 2015 report and results

    Once again it is my pleasure to collate an overall report for Radioglide, thanks to Alan Morton and Mike Fantham for the 100S and F3K reports. I hope my memory of events is correct, it was certainly a busy three days! Full results are available on the forum in their respective sections. Photos are either mine (F5J/F3J/Multi-launch) or Graham James (100S). Saturday F5J This increasing popular electric glider discipline attracted 12 competitors, I believe it was eight last year. The weather forecast predicted light winds, staying dry with an overcast sky, which was pretty much what we had. Des

    Radioglide 2014 Results and Report

    I was asked if I could collate the results and happenings at Tudor Farm for this year’s Radioglide competition so here’s my attempt! Saturday 24 May Two competitions were held on Saturday, F5J in one field and 100S across the road in the other. The day started with heavy rain and did not initially look promising so I held off at home until lunchtime, on the drive over from Brackley the weather improved greatly. The F5J started around 1:30, very ably directed by Bernie Jones. This was my first F5J competition and I found it very interesting in comparison to F3J, lots of tactics involved, do

  25. I am a big fan of the Xplorer from Nan Models so I was more than interested when I heard that Acemodel had taken delivery of their latest creation. Fortunately for me, I had just sold some unused models to raise cash for another project ( which I quickly binned), and after some negotiations with Austin at Acemodel, I got me one of the first (maybe the first) of this new breed This model is especially made for F5j and is VERY light ! It is delivered with label warning not to attempt winch launching with it Wingspan is 3.8mtrs with the latest X2 airfoil, and the fus. is cross tail with an a
