Hi All, these pictures are from 1995. The Diabolo is from an original pilot wood kit. The cowl and spats I molded from glass fibre because the original parts were made from ABS. The wing spars and vertical Web were reinforced with UD carbon. I also strengthened the plywood engine mounting. Engine was a 3W60 and was fitted with a smoke system. I flew this aircraft for about 10 years till a radio/ failsafe condition destroyed it. The Diabolo was a great flying aircraft.
The other picture is of my old Safir Plus pattern aircraft. The Plus was because I lengthened the fuselage. The Safir was powered by a Hanno special with an OS pipe. Propellors used were APC 12 X 12 and 12 X 11.

That is Table Mountain in the background.

Does anyone know where I can download the manual for a JR PROPO PCM 12x?

Many thanks

When you have to solder thin wire to a deans plug drill 1.5mm holes in the solder tag to improve solder and mechanical connection.

I have scanned the Antic Bipe construction manual. It is too big to load here.

If you want it mailed to you just send me your email address.

Fly safe.

I've just completed the repairs to my kmx after damage to the undercarriage mounting. All came out great.
