Good glue is evil
hello all
i plan to make this model in next few weeks.
question on the j250, what voltage is this motor designed for ?
it seems from reading here it will run ok at 7 volts.

the "j250" motor that the hobby shops sell here in australia are ROUND.
what i see here your motors are square,
seems the shops here are selling the wrong motor

Also can FFF be cut with a hotwire cutter ?

Here is a link to "the" j250 with specs, compare the specs for the round one!

And yes they run fine on 7 volts, or 11V if you you have a bunch of them!

Yes FFF can be hotwired! Just watch the smoke, and don't inhale,,,,

Thanks. Just what I needed to know. It's kinda hard for us newbies to get a clear understanding sometimes.

By the way, I left work yesterday afternoon, picked up my son from his piano lesson at 3:30, got home at 4 and there was still some light...so we went into the backyard and took turns flying the T1 around the place. There was a very light wind coming off Narragansett Bay...just enough to make "downwind" seem fast, and "upwind" mean "come almost to a stop"... and we just traded back and forth, flying figure eights, trying to do nice high-altitude circles that didn't get too oval, doing touch-n-gos, and eventually, as the light faded, just trying to avoid the neighbor's magnetic (grin) flagpole. So I owe you a debt of gratitude for a great father-son experience...

I've been corresponding with a guy in Vancouver who is starting to get into RC aircraft. He'd bought a GWS beaver to teach himself to fly with....I think I've convinced him to start with GPW's trainer one instead and save the Beaver for later. He just posted some of his RC ship modeling in the scale boat forum. Check it out. If you appreciate serious scale modeling, (and I do mean serious) you will not be disappointed...you might even be amazed.

Yup....if his other skills match his modeling skills he could learn to fly using a pattern plane as a trainer....but I hadn't seen his RC ship models when I first met him.

Isn't it obvious? It's a real 'floater'.
