A question for you Doug A while back I got a little helicopter and Tx. 40 meg However I don't think the tx is the right one as it was one in a pile.. The problem is although it works up to a point the rotors don't move until the lever is about halfway through the range of movement and the rotors don't reach take off revs. The question is it possible to recalibrate or adjust the pot in some way to sort this? I couldn't test the set when bought as it was a place that sells S/H stuff from house clearances etc so no batteries etc So I took a chance as it was so cheap. I hope you can help as it's quite a cute little thing. Ciao John P.S. Signals come from where Doug?
Doug When you get the circuit sorted for the B/B tester I'd like a copy please. Will it be switchable wavelength wise. I/E one to the other? Re . testing LEDS I use my multimeter set to diode testing Eezy Peezy.🤓👍
No Doug I don't use a dumbphone I'm not clever enough.😊 I've seen Hovercraft plans in some of the on line plans services such as Outerzone Pocket Aeronautics etc . Have a good Google Good luck👍 Oh ! by the way I think a skirt is essential. Some rubberised/plasticised THIN fabric is the best stuff to use or if not👍 oiled silk if you can get it.🤔
Martin can you put up a link to this solder please. I used the original Lumiweld yrs ago (55) to fix the broken off crankcase nose on an Allbon Javelin Worked well and still have it running. Coated the repair with Araldite to ensure airtightness. I still have a bit of it but would like some lower temp stuff. Much obliged if you can do.
Just for the record Sanwa Rx s are reversed too-----------Logically BTW Who makes the best type of crimping pliers for JST type connector terminals? All thoughts considered. Oh yes get a servo tester. Dirt cheap from about £2:50 on the likes of Bang Good, E Bay,Amazon. Really worth Having.👍
Thanks NPJ I wondered if that was the case. Just out of interest will the Civic Centre still be accessible or will there be a ban there? Has anyone said they're attending yet? I hope plenty go. A shame if they don't.👍
It's the crimping part I'm more concerned about. I have those others and then some. In my various tool kits.Saves me getting to a job without the right tools. There is quite a crossover from one to another. I'm not hunting these tools they pop-up. Here's another 4--- https://www.banggood.com/High-Quality-Cable-Wire-Stripper-Cu...

The WoA stones are a very fine abrasive stone which puts a very fine finish on edges etc. My round one snapped when I dropped it.I Araldited it together which lasted years but it got snapped again and I mislaid a half. Must get a new one.---https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=water+of+ayr+stone&oq=Wate... BTW give the flat stones a parrafin/ meths was now and then. See this lot and good luck👍
Funny I usually mention the apron trick and a doggy on a lead????? That's a magnet on a string. I use speaker magnet with the isert. I trap the string in the hole with the insert. Dragged around the floor will pick up any ferrous stuff. Another is a telescopic rod with a magnet incorporating a light for nooks and crannies Where springs or spring loaded stuff fly to. The Apron you can buy or make with eyelets on the hem hooked over little hooks like those used on curtain wire or tiny cup hooks.Screwed under edge of bench. A round Water of Ayr stone (cylinder) is very handy too. Give the stones a clean now and then in detergent rubbed in by hand or meths/paraffin mix but use wet. Good luck.👍
Speranza is a lovely boat and handles nicely but don't undepower it. Vic's Pond Skater is a good flyer and can be converted to leccy and rc. I put a half circle of piano wire across the tips of the front float as a buffer in case of striking an obstacle. My motive power Was 1.5 diesel a prop cut down from a heavy nylon 9" one so just clears the hull/frame . Free running was loads of fun. Air rudder not water. If it is sluggish and won't plane increase the downthrust. The opposite of what you might expect. Regards John Pond Skater can be found on Web Google Vic Smeed Model boat plans. BTW an original thread can be found on here with the title Scudder👍
I don't intend using Lipos when I get back to actually boating and flying as I feel they are too much bother. Lion orABC or similar for me I think.I'll have to think more on it. I have Nimhs and A FEW Nicads .The Nimhs I know for certain are 13 yrs old at least and are showing 11.2v at 82% charge despite not being charged for 4 yrs. The Nicads 9.4v and 42% charge. Not as good; as we might expect but the others really surprised me when I metered them out.8 yrs lying in a blokes planes,boats and boxes and I got them 5 yrs ago.I charged them all and they've not been charged since.We'll have to see what happens under load etc. They might not last 5mins.🤔 John O/T👍 I know some of you won't believe me so tuff.
