Hi, Does anyone know where I can buy/get a Multiplex's MultiLock wing joiner for my Pilatus B4 which was shot down by Master Leung last Tuesday. The plastic wing joiner was broken and needs replacement. I knew there are metal joiners for Multiplex's wings but where I can buy this in Hong Kong. You help is very much appreciated.

Hi Kelvin,

There is an egroup for the RC soaring community, here is its address http://www.egroups.com.hk/group/soaring This is a worldwide group with many top RC pilots, you may get lots of soaring information from them.

If you want to be more extreme, you may also like to join the F3F group at http://www.egroups.com.hk/group/F3F This group is for top soaring pilots doing F3F slope racing.

If you want to be more relex and have interest in scale gliders, you may like to join the Internation Scale Soarring Association Forum at http://www.soaringissa.org/forum2/Default.htm

Hope you'll find a group suitable for you

無錯,一般來說發泡膠機是比較平,是適合初學者。可是發泡膠機也有很多種不同的堅硬和耐用程度,還有不同機種有不同的性能,所以選擇時也因人而異。現時比較耐用的發泡膠機是用EPP材料做,可以低受較大的衝撞。一個值得介紹的EPP機是Dave's Aircraft Work的ME163 http://www.rcsail.com/me163epp.htm 價錢也很合理,不防買隻玩玩!

玩遙控滑翔機並不需要太貴的遙控設備和飛機,由於初學習時飛機容易損壞,初學者最好選擇比較耐用和容易操控的訓練機,例如AeroTechHK的JuniorStar, 請參看http://www.geocities.com/aerotechnichk/index.html。至於遙控器可用簡單的 4 Channels 如 Futaba 的 Skyport 4, HK$700 有交易!你可到賣飛機的模型商店買,請參看 http://www.rcsail.com/hkrcshopsC.html 或你可親身到清水灣的飛行場地,那埵陪茈s陳伯的飛機師有各類的遙控裝備和飛機賣,價錢也很合理而且他可以教你滑翔飛行的技巧。

Yes, Baby powder works well. The major different is the weight, microballon weighted 1/5 as baby powder with the same voulme.

Hi there, recently I got some Micro Balloon from Chester and used it to repair my wings. It works well. Before that I did use white powder 生粉 to mix with epoxy (Master Leung told me that, thanks), it also works. The difference of these two powder agents is that the bonding using Micro balloon seems to be a bit stronger but otherwise looks similar. I also found that CA super glue can also be used to mix with micro balloon and the bond is even harder and quicker, but of course we can't use it on foam. Thanks

Stanley, you are right! Mirco ballon is the best fillet, but try out this option : mix certain amount of baby powder with slow set epoxy. See if you can get good results.

I am looking for Northeast Sailplane Products such as Dominator or Victor. But I found that the shipping charge I quote from the supplier is too expensive. Are there any buddies here preparing to buy something from Northeast Sailplane Products? I want to see if we can order together, then we can get cheaper offer or save more $$ on shipping. Any suggestion is most welcome! Thank you !!!!

P.S. Any other gliders which prefroms and looks like Dominator or Victors I should consider?? Please advise me. thank you!

Hello, due to the limitation of living space and the constant pressure from my wife, I have to reluctantly give away some of my used gliders. Here is the state of these gliders:

1. Big Dragonfly 72", the wing is ok, the fuse is minor damaged and flyable. 2. SailLady 48", the wing is ok, the fuse is damaged but flyable. 3. VStar 60", the wing is perfect, the fuse is damaged but repairable. 4. MiniI 26", in good condition. 5. Tristar 60", a canard model, in good condition. 6. Ninja 60", in mild condition and flyable 7. Samura 60", left wing is damaged and may be repairable, the fuse is difficult to repair. 8. Condor 68", wing only, fuse is beyond repair

Also, I have some RCM magazine from 1991 to 1995.

I would like to give them all free! If you are interested, please give me an email at mailto:stanley@rcsail.com Happy flying!

Hi, our fellow pilots. It seems that, recently, we have a high midair collision rate in our flying sites and some
causalties involved brand new gliders. We all do understand the feeling of those innocent pilots who fly in well
behaved manor but got hit by cowboy flyers. Because of the clowded airspace in weekend, please be considerate
when you fly close to the slope, observe the rule and fly in clockwise pattern if possible, that will make our
slope safer and we'll all benefit from it. Happy flying!

I fly the powered scale plane and helicopter in Foshan City. And I really want try sailplane.
But I can not find a good one in China. There is not a suitable place for slope in Foshan,
so I want to begin with a motor sailplane. Any getleman can tell me if it is ok to begin with
something like nimbus4d(m), and what the price is in HK and
How can I find it.

Hello, everybody. Will anyone tell me where I can buy some micro baloon in Hong Kong or oversea. I have a few sailplane wings to repair. Somebody told me that micro baloon is the best filling agent for repairing those cracked wings. Is that true? Thanks in advance.

spot landing competition
6/24/00
11:57:48 PM

I'M HAPPY THERE'S SOMEONE WILLING TO ORGANISE SOME SORT OF ACTIVITY FOR OUR SOARING GUYS.
I THINK SPOT LANDING IS THE MOST EASY WAY OF COMPETING CAUSE YOU DON'T NEED ANY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT
SUCH AS A LASER GUN OR A JUDGE.

Spot Landing
6/24/00
11:25:07 PM

Hello, this afternoon in Fei Ngo Shan, I had a discussion with
some pilots about organizing a spot landing competition.
The response is very positive. They are willing to participate.

Our initial thinking is:
We will lay down some competition rules and
then choose a day and site for the competition.
We will have a trophy each for the champion, the 1st and 2nd runner up.

We are now inviting comments from our fellow pilots. All views
are welcome.

Hello, our fellows R/C sailplane pilots. Are you interested in

希望給我們模型滑翔機愛好者有一個地方可以買賣和交換退役了的飛機或配件。
請盡量提供你們的意見,你有沒有須要這個溝通渠道?這個交易廣場以什麼方式運作?請緊記我們是以非謀利為原則。
