Gentlemen

The bushes are pretty tight fit. The most important thing is to ensure that you you have really solid support. An alternative is to use a large nut, bolt and washers to pull the bushes into place.

Hi Matthijs and Jeff

Interesting suggestion, we were discussing something along these lines just a week ago. Leave it with us and we will see what we can come up with.

Gentlemen

Gill and I have reviewed the progress of this thread and considered its tone and content very carefully. Unfortunately we do not consider that Kent will ever be happy with this product. We have, therefore decided to write to him directly in order to reach an understanding.

Kent Thank you for your observations. I don't agree that there is something wrong with your turret. Your turret will be exactly the same as all the others. It can be very misleading to take such measurements from illustrations in books, and scale them up. I have checked our programming and our stock...

Due a technical problem at our internet service provider we are not currently able to send e-mails. We are still receiving your messages and Gill is dealing with the current exceptionally high load as quick as she can. Hopefully the situation will be rectified very soon.

Hello Kent. Following your critical comments, I have just checked the CNC programme for the turret wrap. I find that the two pistol ports are not symmetrically machined as you claim. The left had port is 39.3mm in front of the turret axis and the right hand port is 25.6mm in front. They appear at fi...

Mike Here in the UK the design approval of the firing unit specifically requires that the gun barrel is fixed rigidly to the firing unit. This is in order to prevent any failure of a recoil mechanism result in the barrel being ejected at high speed. We tested the argument by firing the unit in a Pan...

Stefan The bearing fit you describe is for a press fit. In our kits we assume that our builders do not have a bearing press. The bores are sized for bearing fitting using Loctite (or a similar industrial adhesive). These types of adhesive require a small gap in order to give best results. The cleara...

Lawrence From what you say your transmitter and receiver aerial set up sound fine. I would start looking for loose connections, but not in the transmitter at first. Check all the plugs and sockets on your receiver and check the xtals. We have had several cases where the xtal connection to the receiv...

Ad A 700mAh battery is perfectly capable of running the digital servo. Our demonstrator uses precisely this size of battery. Changing to a larger size of battery extends the running time, nothing else. The problems that Lawrence is experiencing are not be caused by too small a battery capacity, nor ...
