  1. Wellington (part deux)

    It started off ok going clockwise - the main reason to do it was the late afternoon sun that was in the way from the other side. It was not as smooth going in that way though, so although it was probably safer I didn't try it for very long. I'd give it a try again another day though.
  2. Wellington (part deux)

    I just ordered a fuse and a backup Moth from Matin.
  3. Wellington (part deux)

    that was my first successful (yet terminal) attempt at DS and jesus god now I can see why you guys like it. Once you get up to speed its like flying a different plane. My next stop is NCFM to order another moth! BTW the the wing came out of it intact, I only need to put a new fuse on it.
  4. Wellington (part deux)

    thats not quite the full story... thankfully the circuits tightened up and it was going great.. and the commentary at the start of the next clip forewarns the inevitable..

    what receiver did you use pete. I've had my miniblade in the box the past month and need to get it in the air soon.
  6. What has happened to Foamworks

    likewise, that is great news. I'll also take one when you are ready. Any plans to do any other epp models?
  7. Wellington (part deux)

  9. Wellington (part deux)

    Me too, I have a bee to maiden.
  11. Simons Wee Bee Build

    It was a late one! I also got my new bee finished so will maiden that on the next outing too. Would be good to get all 4 weebees in the air before one of us wrecks one.
  12. Simons Wee Bee Build

  13. Simons Wee Bee Build

  14. Rags, Sun 13th March

    Its some of this stuff: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-styling-127cm-x30cm-3D-Carbon-Fiber-Vinyl-Wrap-Film-Motorcycle-Car-Vehicle-Stickers-And-Decals/32370234200.html i just put it on over the filament tape - a bit of f2 on each side. I put some white stuff on my moth and it seems to be holding out well. It goes on really easily but if ironing it must not be the slightest bit hot or it will melt.
  15. M60 build

    I found the Moth equal with the M60 in terms of penetration and speed - which i didn't expect in that wind. And yes it is the aerobatic's that the 48" wing has over the 60" that I prefer. Jono - i'll sell you the 68" fusion :P.
