Hi
I have read in forums about an RCM&E add on pulser, can anyone guide me to an issue where i can locate it.
Also I'm happy to pay a finders fee if anyone can locate me a copy of "low cost proportional" by W.P Holland.

I had one but it developed tailplane flutter and bit the dust about 5 seconds from take off so i would suggest using 3/8" instead of 1/4" balsa. :)

Funny you should say that, I had a Chili Breeze that lasted a similar amount of time, took off and then no elevator control, culprit was a failed nylon clevice of the same type that Chris Foss puts in his kits, since that day I've never used those clevices on anything other than small low performance models.  I didn't build the model by the way, I bought it secondhand but unflown, it had never even seen and engine or servos

The area that's damaged even further now is the repair that I hid with the fake solar panel. So I'll have to bit the bullet and get inside and do a proper repair this time, luckily it's only just past the T/E of the wing.
As the graphics were getting worn out around the cockpit canopy, I bought a set of the updated 26 graphics from Andy intending to take the old set off and just replace them, but now it will need a proper repair and respray to do the graphics justice.  :af

Oh no Eric I'm sorry sorry to hear that - it must have happened just as Charlie, Pete and myself were leaving.  I remember seeing you flying when I looked back from the car park as I was leaving and it looked like all was well.  Hope the repair won't be too difficult

Another excellent scratching session today in light winds and in good company.
First flight with the my venerable ASH26 was great with a spot-on landing, but on the second I struggled to gain enough height to get into the landing circuit. I could have done with another 10 feet, and ran out of lift on the final turn from base into approach and landed heavily. The sideways force ripped off the tailplane and opened up an area on the fuselage which had been previously repaired.  :'(
So the '26' will be out of action while I completely strip the fuselage (which I have been meaning to do for a sometime), repair, repaint and apply some bright new modern Finnish '26' livery which I obtained from Andy Schafer.

Had a pleasant few hours up Mill Hill with the alula and guppy micro sloper just wished I had had the BOT ready as conditions would have been perfect to give it a first flight, few others up there as well, always nice to have a chat

Trader easily found for aspen fuels and a gallon was purchased for 18.50, so will be interested to see how the engine performs on this fuel.
I gather the benifit is lack of smell. If that's a problem  (living in a flat maybe) then it's worth it. Otherwise stick to Morrisons at 1.14 a litre.
