    Name that Rigger

    Brad Didn't know you could build them either way. Learn something new every day I guess. I built a 60 and a 90 the same way. Good info. Bill

    Name that Rigger

    That is not a Avenger/Spider. The A/S had the transom recessed which also meant the rudder and strut were also recessed. The plywood sides extended past the transom creating the recess. I am looking at my A/S right now. I think Rick was closer with the Coyote. Bill Hoch

    Battery Testing? NiMH

    Michael I was wrong the way I described it. The resistor should go across the plus and minus leads which would put a load on the battery pack. With the resistor in place you can then check the voltage across the leads and see how much it goes down. This is what a battery checker does. It puts a load across the battery and lets you see the voltage drop. Sorry about the misinformation. Bill

    Battery Testing? NiMH

    Michael If you can get to the leads to test the voltage you can put a 40 ohm resistor in series with the positive lead on the voltmeter to the battery and this will put about a 150 mA load on the battery . This is about the load that a system puts on the battery not including the servos. The resistor should be a 2 watt or more rating. They do get warm. You can buy them at Radio Shack. It may sound complicated but it is straight forward. Bill

    Anyone Know What this is?

    Getting back to the original post about the boat. Could it be a Dumas 21? I think they called it a Hawk. Bill

    Anyone Know What this is?

    The sponsons were solid wood . Not as light as balsa. Now my curiosity has got me and I will research that. Bill

    Anyone Know What this is?

    I have a 90 Avenger Spider and the sides were 5 ply birch plywood. I don't know what the inner layers are but sure looks like regular aircraft birch. Also had a 60 A/S and it had birch sides too. The sponsons were solid lightweight wood. Can't remember the type of wood but it was light. Bill Hoch

    octura twin wing ding

    John I looked all around for a twin Wing-Ding article but I must have confused it with another twin that was built. I do remember the single Wing-Ding that was on the cover of the magazine. Sorry about that. Bill Hch

    octura twin wing ding

    I remember the RC Modeler magazine had an article on a twin Wing Ding. I will try to find out what month and year that was. Bill Hoch
