Quote from: Phil_G on April 20, 2010, 11:44:02 amWhilst Single-Channel is ideal for 'radio assisted free-flight' I'd agree theres no real advantage over a single servo propo set, but surely some would enjoy the added element of nostalgia? This hobby is for enjoyment, right? CheersPhil
Quote from: enginetorque on May 18, 2010, 17:33:55 pmWell I'm just fresh home from a weekend at Macrihanish fun fly meet - the best fun of the weekend was the DB novice sessions - everyone and his dog up and flying with rudder elevator Diesel powered (MUST be Diesels - no glows - no electricky allowed) stuff!Flying formation aeros without throttle control or ailerons and not knowing how long before your motor cuts hugely ups the fun factor - no good planning a landing as one found out when his motor run went on for a good 20 minutes compared with everyone elses 5 or 10what a hoot
Quote from: Phil_G on May 18, 2010, 18:52:34 pmBear in mind the original would be pretty unreliable, was prone to interference, they were super-regen so you could only fly one-at-a-time, no escapement or actuator was included, range wasnt fantastic and the airborne pack (rx/esc/batteries) weighed anything up to 6 ounces.
Quote from: 2.4G Shaun on August 17, 2010, 20:46:18 pm You may notice my new form of motive power..The Balsa Diesel In one of the Pics, you'll see the Buddy Box for my Futaba set.. This was developed for people, not wanting to go the whole hog and build a dedicated set. One other advantage is you can have full propo control again on releasing the trainer switch if it gets hectic or you bottle it. Cheers, Shaun
