General rumblings

Hi everyone!

So, what do you guys and girls (do we have any female members?) think of the new forum?

Cheers!
Rafa

I don't currently have a plane that I'd use it on, but may in the next few months when I get into 3D flying.
Cheers!

After a month of rebuilding and taking foam from the old FW-190 and using clear bra I finally have my Mustang back together. Hope to have it back at the field soon.

Just got the ISS news letter. Just to clear up what happened to the P-51 my battery dumped after 2 mins of flying and even though I have a second battery for the rx the plane was too far away to make it back. The battery was smoking hot and still won't take a charge. Hitting the trees was not due to flying too low.

That's interesting. I've had a few batteries fail recently where they read full charge under the X4 charger and the meter. But they would lose power a minute or two under load in the air.
I tried balancing, draining to safe level and rebalancing those batteries but they still would lose power in flight. They were all about 1 year old and I've since recycled them to avoid losing a plain to a bad battery.

Cheers!

Are we having a club meeting Sat before the Fun Fly? This would be the last chance to get the details worked out for the Warbird meet. I have a feeling that pushing it back a month or two may be best.

Something to think about now that its getting warmer is your foam planes with dark paint. The sun will make black, dark brown & green...etc. Puff up and this does not go away. When not flying your plane think about sitting it in the shade or covering it with a towel. I saw one guys Warbird puff up like alligator skin because he left his plane in the direct sun for only a few mins, thats all it takes.

Just something to think about

Bob

Getting a new sound unit for the P-51. This unit is completely different than my old one and had true digital recorded sound from a RR Merlin including startup & shutdown. The sample I heard is just amazing and nothing like the old unit. I should have it at the field the next weekend I hope to test it.
