Sorry but did know I was going flying until I had a phone call at 9.15 this morning so I knew I was not staying long. Try and catch up either in the week or next weekend.

Hey All.
Eyeboy had a bit of a fly up at Perran this lunchtime, and seen as how he's working soo hard this afternoon, I though I would upload the pictures up for him. I only took about 20 pictures, but here's the link to see 10 of them -

I think that was aimed at me. There was a thread on it before the forum crashed.

I'll post on your thread. Basically I was looking at a possible cottage industry for my mother-in-law who's a prfessional seamstress with an industrial machine. My Prototype got pretty carried away. I'll post on your thread.

Hope to beat you to it. I've got a 15:00 meeting at threemilestone. So with a bit of luck I'll be up there for 16:30. Looks like the top slope by the hump.

Forecast was looking great last time I looked. Could even be sunny, with that NW'ly keeping the sun out of our eyes all being well.

Hopefully catch some of you later.

As in.........

Refer to the top site, by the hump, known as Bawden, or man and his man as the main site? :study:

Or do you mean that the main site, that I know as Coastguards, works just as well in a NW????  ::)

Tubby's and Coastgaurd are clear.......I think. What are we calling the hump?

Help, building my kulbutin, the wings are white foam with very neat cut outs for the servos, however best way to secure servos, heavy duty double sided tape or epoxy. Oh by the way servos are digital 225 mini servos

the bee2 is a new version of the old bee using some updated moulds.
the beevo is good but some of the yanks feel the bee has better combat agility, where as the beevo is more of a go fast toy.

Hi Sean, Danny here.

I have been flying one of these for a couple of years now and barry had one that he sold to Andrew, Steve woods still has his i think.

We bought ours at the Thames Valley Airshow, and i think we payed about 25 quid each! So yes they are very cheap.

They DO require mini servos unless you want to fit a fuz (like i did in its first incarnation, it now has minis and no fuz after a recover).

They are fast, quick to build and take a bashing as well as any other wings.

You can have a go on mine next time i see you on the slope and then you can decide if you want one!

Thats basically it.

The designer had a poll going on rcgroups asking what was the best wing. Some clever dick pointed out that it would be a mix of the two, keep the agility but make it as fast as possible. I've got high hopes for the new one being as fast as a bevo but with really good agility. :xx

what do you all think
rumble is selling a mini blade performance with 6 servos+battery for 225
its had a mid air and broken the fuzz behind the wing he sounds confident that it has been repaired to a high standard.to fly this plane i would have to get a nother transmiter i think as mine is 4ch could i run it on 4ch I'm thinking y leads

and if i can how can i make a secure payment

Hi Ryan

If you're going to get into more sloping and more planes I'd bite the bullet and get a transmitter that'll do all the glider type mixes you need... it'll give you a much better flying experience.

As for the Mini Blade, I'd always be dubious about buying a mouldy that has been damaged and repaired... I'd only buy it if I knew the person well and could fly it before buying.

I reckon if you keep your eyes peel on here and bmfa you'll get something better or cheaper. I wouldnt be fixed on the MB either... theres loads of choice.

Steve
