A drone strike on the white house could solve all this!

Buy, Sell, Trade or Give Away / A10 Warthog

This is a scratchbuilt plane, looks like its made with Depron, very sturdy, good finish.. 42" WS. Comes complete, all it needs is a battery. It may never have flown, at least not by me. I bought, but I've got too many planes, cutting back to slow movers. Clearing the hanger
Asking $45

Float Flying at Deseronto / Re: Float Flying Basics

Are you sure that stuff is rigid enough? The EPP foam in ARF's is more rigid, and is stronger in 'tear-away" resistance. I suppose you could use a thin coat of fibreglass.

I need practice. So far I have made 5 water take-offs, and only one successful landing!

Members should know that Deseronto Club hosted a float fly last Saturday, and because of the wind there was no flying. However we all had a great time, a terrific barbecue, a swap shop, and lots of talk. The next one should be fun! Thans Walter!
Gary - your idea of a Deseronto Club Events category on our site is great.


General Discussion / Re: Spektrum SD Cards, Backup
« on: July 18, 2018, 09:19:14 AM »
I have been quite happy to just backup my models to the SD card without any further manipulation, it's simple, and once I did need to restore.
Where is Airware? Is that the software built into the Tranmitter? I'm not sure how you access it except throught the model import/export function.
Is there any way to easily sort the model locations (say alphabetically) using it? I've used model copy function, but you have to rebind at the new location.
Over to you, DS

I have been using Corrosion-x for about 20 years. I first discovered it while sailing, and used it widely, especially on the radar connectors which hate salt. It is incredible as you say. One outstanding feature, it is the best nut and bolt release agent. no matter how rusty or jammed, this stuff will get in there overnight and Bob's your uncle!
The last time I bought it was at Westmarine, but they have now closed. You don't need much. They sold it in 2 ounce bottles, and I've still got a bit left after years.

Hi Guys:
I have as complete sheet of FunCub decals if someone wants to refresh their ship!
These sell for $22 USD, make me an offer.

This is the beginning of the big Reg Watts online swap meet. Buy or swap, and many free items to come.
But first:

Four 28-size Cheetah electric motors:

•   2814 – 6, 1400 KV, 40 A
•   2814 – 8, 1400 KV, 35A
•   2814 – 12, 1000 KV, 35 A (two motors)

These motors are used but in excellent condition. They are now selling for 29$ US at BP Hobbies
Make an offer to buy or swap

Thanks for all that - I think I'm on my way with Versa #3

I use hot glue, it works well, especially on the balance charge leads.
As for connectors, I bought those little plastic servo lead locks from HK, they cost a few pennies and are great!

New subject: have you been able to find PolyCrylic in small cans? They want $23 for a quart here. Do you wipe both sides of a sheet at the same time? (remember my warping problem)

Yes, the HXT kits are peanuts, and after a try or two, easy to fix the 900's. I still haven't figured out how to open the 500's.
It's always the second gear from the top so I have quite a collection of the others. Sometimes I change the whole set, others, I just change the #2.
But as yet, I haven't found any kits for the other brands, especially Turnigy metal gear. Any ideas?

Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Re: The Wonder of Drywall Tape

Very interesting idea about using parchment paper.
 I'm still thinking there's a better hinge idea to come. I do like a mechanical hinge because sooner or later my DW tape hinges shear off, even with the hotglue line.
Because we use foam to build, pin hinges only work for me if you reinforce them top and bottom. The flat mini hinges eventually pop off.
I'm working on it, maybe we can patent it .

Thanks, Dwayne, Gary has a good hand on the camera.
I didn't know he had also done one on Terry the pterodactyl on the club roof for YouTube.  My wife was in stitches over it.
Sadly, Terry has gone to the great boneyard in the sky (except for his body in the garage , so I might recreate him this winter with a better wing design.)
As for Eddie, he continues to amuse everybody that sees him. I'm just trying to figure out a camera location on him.

Fabulous video, thanks so much,
Reg and Eddie
