  3. Now that winter testing is fully underway, I can see the benefit of a telemetry receiver in gauging practice launch heights. I recall at last April's try it day at Buckminster that someone was using a Lemon telemetry receiver. I assume it was a Lemon LM0051. Question is will it work safely on a single Lipo? 3.7v-4.02v. Literature for an LM0051 suggests not - 4.5v min. I currently use a Lemon RX6 which runs fine for over an hour on a 1s lipo.

    Radioglide 2017 F3K Report and Results

    Entries were well up this time on the past few years at 18 - we only had 8 in 2016. This trend has been there for all of the first three F3K events this season and is a very welcome sign. Not just more entries but an improving standard of flying across the board with several new names coming in and already flying at a good standard. We were all keen to see and try the new BMFA National Centre field and we were not disappointed. Driving up from London I met increasingly overcast conditions and a fair breeze from the west. The sky cleared during the day and the wind dropped off giving idea
  14. Hi guys, Bit of a long shot but anyone in the Midlands/Worcestershire area up for having a fly with me? I have my new Snipe together but my flying is terrible, i thought i was getting there when i had my Blaster 3.5 but since switching to the Snipe i'm really having a difficult time and feeling like quitting dlg. I read you have to keep the speed up with these models, but since i always fly alone i have no idea what the optimal speed looks like. I'm also losing a lot of height in turns. And then there is my launch height, i don't know if it's not accurate as i can't get it to z
  15. It's Radioglide time again and this year we get our first taste of the field at the BMFA National Flying Centre! Please get your entries in ASAP.

As usual, new entrants are very welcome and we will do our best to take care of you.

    KST 08 servos

    So, over on RC Groups they are discussing the quality and life of the KST 08 servos and they seem really hit and miss. But there are a lot more USA dlg fliers than there are UK fliers so naturally problems may show up with more of them being used over there. You guys here in the UK using them, how are you finding them? i had 4 in Blaster 3 but i didn't own that for very long and have 4 for my Vortex. But, if they are becoming a bit hit or miss, i would rather not finish the build with them and use something else, i'd rather go to something not as well spec'd but that's going to last, rath
  17. Its snowing outside so what better way to spend the evening than sorting out stuff for May :-) Weekend of 13th & 14th May 2017 We had a great event last year, let's see if we can encourage a few more entries and make 2017 a fantastic one! Location for the event - Little Bentley, Colchester, Essex, CO7 8SN. I have created the event on the F3XVault website - pre-payment is a requirement for registration.

    Swiss travel

    Planning a trip to Switzerland next year to visit family. Anyone know if they have any restrictions or requirements to flying there? Don't want to get on the wrong side of the Swiss! I'll be mostly flying DLG & hopefully some sloping from the hillsides.

  23. Hey everyone! A question most likely for F3x competitors, what type of boxes do you use to get your models on a plane, or what have you seen in use? I've been trying to find something big enough to take a few F3K size planes, but not dramatically expensive neither. I looked at the type of transport box Hyperflight is selling, though it doesn't fill me with confidence as to the strength of one (selling a damaged box at half price now). I thought of adapting one of the Ski plastic boxes that can accommodate up to 4/5 sets of skis, but getting one big enough in UK, not to mention the pr
