Electric Flight Technical / Re: 1st electric model
« Last post by Terry Clarke on Today at 00:41:24 »
Don't snip it, just lift the tab in the connector and pull it out and tape it back. You can put it back in then if you need to in the future.

Electric Flight Technical / 1st electric model
« Last post by British Victory on Yesterday at 23:12:56 »
I have a vintage model that I've electrified. It has a really short nose and whipping out the 4 stroke and putting in the electric motor has required loadsa lead.
I want to fit a battery for the rx up front (the flight battery can't intrude because of all the lead and the substantial firewall)
I realise that the in built bec on the speed controller normally supplies the power but I want the useful ballast and also the peace of mind that the extra battery provides.
To stop the esc from providing power is it simply a matter of snipping the positive lead from the esc or is it more complex than that?

I've bought 2 secondhand cars though dealers since the 'new' system was introduced neither have asked for my insurance certificate, prior to the 'new system the dealer needed my insurance details to tax the vehicle.

IC Engines / Can anyone make one of these ‘Widgets’
« Last post by Bustergrunt on Yesterday at 12:31:19 »
Whilst perusing my old RCM&E mags (RCM&E special Autumn 2016) I came across an article by Brian Winch in which he describes a ‘widget’ which is used to convert glow engines to diesel.
This comprises of a copper rod with a thread which is screwed into 2 converted glow plug bodies.
1. Has anyone done this and if so how did it work for you?
2.could anyone make this for me as I have no access to a lathe.

Here is a little game we play at work.

A vehicle pulls up outside. Note the registration.

Then go to https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

 I just had a dig around on Google and put in some older car Numbers, and they don't seem to work, as does my French ones, so
on Holiday in Britain next year i will come over in my French numbered car and F***k the Police !

You may or may not be surprised at the results.

I think I mentioned originally that I used to see community police officers going around council estates I was working on checking tax discs and calling in trucks to remove untaxed vehicles. Now they are relying on ANPR cameras in police cars (who really dont have the time anyway) to pick them up, just avoiding the ANPR in towns means you are unlikely to be caught. I would have though that smart motorways or any average speed camera would spot these and send a fine through the post, but I have not heard of this happening.

Thanks for that. Hopefully those who decide to dodge tax will at least take out insurance. ANPR is fine as far as it goes, but it does depend upon where you are. Up here I could drive for hundreds of miles without any danger of seeing a camera, either fixed or in a police car, and I assume that the same must be true in other rural areas.

Exactly what we said at the time Mike. They don't live in the real world. I think.in an accident third parties would be paid but you can kiss your comprehensive insurance goodbye. You won't get paid.
