Yesterday , cleaning a spray gun, I accidentally blocked the nozzle and got a shot of cellulose thinner straight into my right eye. Agony. A short blockage of the nozzle resulted in the bottle being pressurised and a powerful shot of fluid from the paint tube. Very quick reaction by Wilma prevented ...

Re: Spektrum power safe power box combo

The original question was about the Powerbox sensor switch. With 9 models equipped with these units I know the switch can easily cope . The F4 , Reaction, 2 Sabres, 2 Bobcats, Paritech DG 303, Big Blanik, and Revision all fly with sensor switches and Weatronic receivers which measure voltage, never ...

Re: Spektrum power safe power box combo

I was very surprised to hear that a Sensor is considered marginal for a Hunter. I use the sensor on several models, some bigger than a Hunter, with more servos, even on my BVM F 4. My Weatronic receivers monitor and record voltage, some receivers record currents . Never seen a voltage drop of more t...

Silver soldering.

Some advice please. For silver soldering I had a superb device in Australia, just right for small silver soldering using a propane and oxygen mix. I can’t get the oxygen bottles in U.K so could I ask what you guys use in the U.K. for silver soldering jobs. Propane torches just don’t seem to work for...

Jr 28x users, a heads up!

I lost a jet today, my PST Panther on its first flight, total loss. C of G and control throws were meticulously checked, all good. After take off I retracted the flaps, the model became uncontrollable, I thought I reselected t/ o flap but MAY have selected full flap. On preflight independent control...

RIAT 2018

Not long to go now before RIAT 2018.

Should be the best ever, celebrating the RAF 100 anniversary.

This year there is a FULL flying display on the FRIDAY, quieter for traffic.

The REDS gained their PDA this week, so it’s all go.

Don’t miss it!
