Re: Spanners and other stuff you could put in the tool boxes

Found some new dragon figures with era kit at this site Machinegun at www.machinegun-figures.com, at relatively reasonable prices. Kit bashing has become very expensive when a 58 webbiing and a Stirling on the ebay costs more than these whole kits being offered with tax and postage from France. I do...

That's one ugly looking Chieftain.

I'll be the first say Chieftain is by far the best looking MTB ever, but Vickers did their very best to spoil the classic lines with their Marksman effort. Still the clip does show off the asthmatic chain smoking sounding L60 at it very best. Turn it up and enjoy! :lol: https://youtu.be/0CWeino-wu0 ...

Re: Modified steering brakes

Like it. Looks good. :D :idea: 8) What are the chances of adding a transverse drive rod to control the other brake from the single servo? I saw a chap on YouTube cut a model race car brake pad from a grinder slitting disk. I thought super idea to make a thin grippy pad to attach to the brake disk.. ...

Re: Totem Pole and the Sundance kid

Hi Graham I struggled to find M15 ID wave washers. I did have some ordered from the USA, but they canceled. So I brought 10 x M14 for just over £1.00. Guessing there'd be a little bit of clearance on M14, gently grinding out enough material with a dremel type tool to clear 15mm. Try this on ebay Wav...

Re: show your Warrooms and workshop 1/6

As I see it, no place is off limits for a war room until told otherwise.
It did say "For better or worse" in the verbal contract :lol:

Re: One FrSky way of braking the UC

I cannot under stand why two servo's are needed on the UC braking system? both brakes working together accidentally could have a disastrous stalling effect the main drive. Why not use just one servo with a simple slide. The only torque required is from one servo, All it needs to do is to over come t...

This might be a sticky wicket.
I don't know about an Arabic symbol, the symbol orientation seems wrong to me, it looks like a Hebrew symbol.(cheth=8)?
I've seen the picture, but not the actual photo, it might be just made up. (A Leonardo)

They can be setup as a latched output or momentary output on either relay. Because its a relay you can use any voltage with in reason up t...
