We survived :)

Found on the cliffs...

Found on the Minster Cliffs - Perhaps a club member who braved the elements... Can’t be Paul as he was making his plane... Beware of the wind chill - it’s a killer for your little pinky!

Help, chaps. I have acquired an almost brand new OS 46FX-H. Having dismantled it to replace bearings and seals, etc. I removed the carb only to find that the threads had been stripped. Question 1, where can I get a replacement 40C carb body? I've had a look on the internet and they are as rare as hen's teeth. Question 2. Do any of you good people have one which I can purchase? Help!

Just arrived this afternoon as Paul was leaving but he kindly came back and video'd a couple of my new toys. The first one is a Schloiderding DLG,  a 1.2m all wood kit I built (rudder & elevator) and the second one is a Hawk, a 1.0m all carbon DLG (ailerons, flaps, rudder & elevator). Still to perfect launching!

Finally EFXTRA flies :)

Finding the cg for Extreme wot 4

Hi folks
Needed to find approx cg position for ni-cads in the model, set it up on the dining room table (I have a special license for cg setup on the table). Looks like it is ok to place the two main nicads  in the front compartment behind the engine and the other 4.8v ignition nicad to be re-positioned some were else to optimize the cg. Also got a reading on how much it weighs. The cg measurement is measured from the front of the sensor to the inbuilt laser pointer at 175mm which equates to approx 115mm from the L.E.

Nearly there, Extreme Wot 4

Hi folks
Nearly finished now, fitted the silencer and U/C and the cowl. Modified the front wing dowels thought they were a bit to short to carbon rod all glued in place. Next job tonight is to determine roughly were the batteries need to be in relation to the CG.
