  • Reman: I just half woke up, opened my eyes to check the time. and while doing this I subconsciously noticed something wrong with the shape of shadows on the other side of the room. That woke me up with a jolt!!!  It seems I've got so used to seeing my camera hex perched up on the set of draws in the corner of my bedroom that the area now looks strangely empty without it (I took it apart on Sunday to begin the rebuild into its new Y6 frame)...... And now I'm wide awake at bloody half one in the morning....... And feeling like a paranoid pillock. :(

It catches the back of my throat when sanding it so i tend to wear a dust mask now. I find the biggest irritant is cyano fumes now.

I also wear glasses, so I won't be buying any box style large single screen goggles. I've had some before and couldn't use them.

I've got the Quanum V2 box goggles, And I can wear them over my glasses without any problems........ And this is from someone who's optician once absentmindedly told him that he didn't have a particularly wide range of frames in stock "That would suit someone with such a large head" !!!!! (He did go on to add that as I'm tall with broad shoulders, my head's in proportion to my body, It was just larger than the average). :)

Bad Raven, as always a very informative and helpful post, the JP wont be set up for speed, and to begin with i will be using it on nursery slopes, though feel i will progress quite rapidly, as sloping feels right, it feels good, i am coming home with undamaged planes and a cheery grin, and funny thing here, when i fly powered planes i am a bag of nerves, when i launch a slope i have no nerves. This is bringing back feelings from the 80`s when i was flying thermal .
Me out with Z84 today<br /><br /><br />where to host images<br />

General Discussion / Are you allergic to balsa wood dust?
« Last post by Two-Six on Today at 13:20:07 »
I have been suffering from getting extra wheezy and asthmatic with knobs on recently. 
I used to get wheezy and asthmatic many years ago but haven't been bothered by it for a long time.   The on-set of the asthma seems to co-inside with me doing quite a lot of balsa bashing when building my Highside glider.

I am just wondering if anybody else gets asthmatic and irritated by balsa wood dust?

AFAIK the JP-Si came about as a deal between JP and Avicraft who didn't want to continue the legacy Zagi, on which it is based, and which originally had a hand cut EPP leading edge glued to a poly white foam main section. It's an old school design chevron in terms of aero profile, as is the Mamba.

(Another deal with JP was the Avicraft "Panic" Biplane which was ARTF by JP long before Mr Foss went all Oriental with the WOT4!)

Having piloted and flown with/against all of them, I'll still stick with my Slipstreams, but that does not mean you won't have a good time with it.

With both properly set up and tuned, I think you will find only small differences in flight envelope/wind range twixt it and the Wild Thing as neither are speed machines.  The Zagi is the quicker of the two however and does however get onto the Dynamic Soaring Speed charts at the bottom of the second page with 70mph (against a first place by the JW 60 of 244mph in 60mph winds, a plane I own, though mine in the UK has done far FAR less than 244, not having a handy Whelton Mountain to throw it off!!!).

Not sure if the foam will take the heat required for laminate.  As the weight won't  be a problem i would go for fibre with a covering of coloured. ::)

Stick some ballast in  and fly the ar$e off it.. :evil :evil
I guess you mean fly the ar$e of the JP-SI slope wing.........i intend to do just that, need to decide if i laminate it, fibre tape it or use all weather clear tape, and of course nice colour tape

Highly recommend these batteries for their cheap price. Not sure if they are actually graphene or not but they do recover well from high discharge.

Lol, thought I was the only one that felt a little bit dirty for not pulling the power chord from my tv the second that sprang into my screen.
