RC Flight Chatter / The last Mag Standing
« Last post by Dai Hedral on Today at 14:00:50 »
With the demise of Traplett Publications and the sad loss of Radio Control Model World, RCM&E is the last magazine available in the newsagents. Having said that, I'm not sure what the status of Aeromodeller  magazine is at the moment, but I don't see it about very often.
My problem is that I don't find much to interest me in RCM&E, and several times recently I've picked it up in our local Tesco, flipped through it and put it back on the shelf especially so since the price increase to 5.25. Why is this a problem? Well, I sort of feel guilty every time I do it because if many more like me refuse to spend their hard earned on the magazine, then it will go the way of RCMW and others before it. Yes I could get it a bit cheaper if I took out a subscription, but there is still an issue with the content and most of the information I need, I can find on line anyway.

Bob, I'm using a Hobbywing Pentium 40 in the Unlimited. The name had to be changed for copyright reasons but I'm pretty certain this Turnigy Plush 40 is the same with a different badge. Although the spec says it's linear BEC I'm sure all Hobbywing 40A & over ESCs are switch mode & one of the reviews mentions that it is. So long as you don't load the motor over about 35A a 40A ESC gives plenty of leeway.

Re shopping from HK, if you only intend to get a motor & ESC it's worth comparing the postage from UK against EU warehouse. It does take longer from EU but is usualy much cheaper for low weight packages, except lipos.
Ordered these Pat, thanks. Looking at spinners and props now-https://hobbyking.com/en_us/50mm-alloy-folding-propeller-spinner-with-4mm-5mm-6mm-shaft-adapters.html What do you think?

RC Flight Chatter / Ultimate slim plans
« Last post by Wayne downunder on Today at 10:35:06 »
Need help!

I recently got back into the hobby and decided to complete my Ultimate Slim biplane build but alas the plans cannot be found!! I have completed both wings but need a refrence for the fuselage for the instructions to make sense.

Is there anybody out there who still has the plans, or can take a photo, as I believe the kit is no longer in production.

Regards
Wayne

Slope / Re: What Balsa build
« Last post by Rusty on Yesterday at 16:11:57 »
Great build log Slope Flyer, I should have read this before I started my own Omega.
It has taken me 7 months so far, but the end is in sight.
I've kept to the original outline, but added spruce spars to the wings and glass fibre reinforcement to the fuselage.

Back in 1956 the RAF Regiment tested Marham's security - and it wasn't good. They came at night and the next morning aircraft were found to have been adorned with labels stating 'This asset has been destroyed, courtesy of the RAF Regiment' That was bad enough - but they had also attached a label to the door of the A-bomb store, a store permanently under floodlights with a double fence surrounding it with the space between the two fences
 patrolled by RAF Police dog handlers!
The CO was posted away soon afterwards - wonder why!
Mike (hopefully security is better nowadays)
apparently not....

RC Model Flying Events / Re: Warbirds over RAF Shawbury 2-3 September 2017

Good Afternoon Guys,

We still have a few places left for this event but it seems that some are being put off by the rumour that it is for RAFMAA members only. Nothing could be further from the truth this event is being organised by RAFMAA not only for their members but also to enable us to offer you the unique opportunity of flying from one of the best sites in the country.

So if you fancy a day or two at Shawbury then please go to the RAFMAA webpage www.rafmaa.co.uk and register with Gaz Hughes, or just PM me and I will get you sorted.

Well, (Devils Advocate Mode) He was flying across open water and I cant see he did anything dangerous, and he has shown up the vulnerability of the warship. He gave his name and address to the guards who seemed uninterested. My anger is at the so called security here. I bet Al Qaeda are kicking themselves for not doing it first. Why is Britain so complacent? Back in the 80s I was working at RAF Coningsby and used to drive in waving my pass at the guards. Never a problem, even when one day I went in the Missus car. I used to park my van in a hangar next to a Phantom under repair. One of the personnel shelters we were working on was raided by thieves who tore out all the copper piping for scrap- this in a Tornado base with a nuclear armaments store. Nothing was ever reported in the papers.
