More videos


During our recent trip on our canal boat I managed to doaerial videos of some of the Iconic places on the English canal system

Here's one of Braunston which is at the heart of the system. As you will see there are an awful lot of boats tied up there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpcTl...4&feature=plcp

Next is Stoke Bruerne a very pretty canal village that is home to the canals museum. It looks quiet in this video but on a sunny summer Sunday the top lock is ringed by Gongoozzlers ( canal term for audience).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnf_FbjMnms

More to follow tracking our journey down the Grand union canal

Enjoy ( oh and please click on the ads)

They were sure warped and nearly unflyable- I gave him a set i had from my old EZ but he misses the blue color of the old ones

What Mike Then said. I don't know enough about the chemistry to speculate as to why, and I believe Elapor is a proprietary formula, but every Multiplex kit that I've assembled so far as carried a warning against the use of epoxy.

The only debate that I've seen centres on whether the kicker is an optional extra which simply makes life easier - because you don't have to wait so long - or whether it actually causes the bond to be stronger. Some have suggested that CA requirement for moisture as a "hydrating" agent cannot be entirely met by foams like Elapor, and that the kicker hence strengthens the overall bond.

One read of the health warnings on the kicker bottle was enough to put me off

On one hand, I'm awed by the videos you guys post, but on the other (like Terry) I end up looking at sky for half the video. I would love to fit my camera at a 45 degree down angle right into the nose; seeing the height/horizon and landscape gives me goose pimples (that's why I'm nervous of FPV for now) - with my landing ability (minimal and bumpy), is this such a good idea?

Edit: this year I will mostly be dribbling over this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1080p-Spor...item3a72925089
Make sure you read up on the thread for the #16 as there are some sd cards that don't work with it.

I might give one a try someday as you never have enough cams.

I think my major issue with CA is that it's brittle - are there more plastic varieties out there?

There are "flexible" CA varieties, like this one for example:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...n_CA_1_oz.html

Personally, I'm very fond of Uhu Por. It's sufficiently flexible to resist shattering during crashes, and it's easy to apply and store. Another alternative is the "Jiao Shui" stuff from HK, which is actually very flexible and therefore excellent for relatively large expanses of EPP or Elapor:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...rge_100ml.html

CA's firmness makes it the glue of choice for control horns IMHO. Flexibility is unwanted in that area.

Cheers - I think I'll order some of both

I've never used Kicker, some say it can make the joint brittle. I've found medium CA gives plenty of strength and normally holds within 10 seconds giving just enough time to make adjustments but left undisturbed for a few minutes is plenty strong enough to handle. I've also found hot glue is great for fixing servos - easy enough to cut away if you're not to liberal with it.

I've been getting fairly liberal with the hot glue this week - securing weak connections on an LED setup (tiny wires and plugs, easily pulled out)


Just purchased some Loctite 'Flexible' CA - says it's "infused with rubber"

Thanks. Every Friday is a Good Friday. It's Mondays that need improvement.
