If you don't mind my asking Spoonwasher, who is the maker of these particular Chinese batteries that your referring to? I'd like to know also if it was a recent shipment or have you had the batteries for awhile? Oh, and my batteries smell like smoked sausage!! Steve

That's really cool Marty!!!!:)

Happy New Year Steve.... and no I don't mind you asking about the batteries. I bought then late august, imported by Parker Models here in Canada, red shrink wrap package but no brand name. They were 2000mah, 15c 3 cell lipo's.I sometimes fly indoors with the guy who imports this stuff and he also has a web site so I'm going to contact him directly and maybe I can get more info as who actually manufactured his stock.

I'd like to know Don. I bought a couple of packs from United Hobbies but no problems so far. I parallel them in my .25 size DR1. Martin that camoed DR1 looks kinda like a candy cane! But it's cool!! Steve

Looks like food for my Sopwith.

Spoonwasher 01-02-2008 04:04 AM

I've got a response from Parker and he's asked me to bring the batteries back to the hobby shop so I'll drop them off thursday and find out what Chinese manufacturer made these.

Oh yeah, Nice colour scheme on the Dr1, there seems to be so many choices for the DR1 that I might have to build one, just to have a little colour around....and that's almost like switching from GM to Ford for me...LoL...Don

WWI Ace 01-02-2008 07:03 PM

Glad to hear you might get your battery problem fixed Don!! Steve

You guys building or flying this weekend? I'll probably piddle with something. The wind is supposed to be 20-30mph today so no flying for me! Martin's probably going to put his SE5a together if I were guessing! Steve

Lots of wind here too. Temps are headed for record highs so if wind drops and not raining it should be nice flying, will have to put up a Sopwith and look for those black crosses. Till then I am working on a Morane Saulnier L.

Cool Degreen60!! Are you going to post pics of the plane when finished? We'd like to see them!! Steve

Ill post some bones pictures soon. Someone else started this plane and I think I am at least the 3rd owner now. The wing was about an inch too short and someone had started to install alerons. I have made the wing longer and finished the alerons. I have silk soaking in tea for the covering.

VERY NICE Degreen60!! Looks like a great start!! My wife sometimes has silk soaked in tea too when she gets clumsy with her sweet tea glass!! Haha!! Steve

WWI Ace 01-05-2008 07:42 PM

You don't have to soak the silk, just need sharp knife and plane to cover.

This was designed by Peter Rake Bengtson Company.

Well Boys I had to work late today (Saturday) and didn't get to the HS. :mad: However, they're holding it for me. :) Being the curious person that I am, I decided to try something. I called all of the HS's in my area inquiring about the kit. Most didn't have it. So I asked each of them if they could do better on the price. :rolleyes: Not one of them budged! :eek: All said the price was $49.99 + tax. Oh well it's only airplane money!!!! :rolleyes: LOL!!!! :D Tomorrow I will have kit in hand. :cool: Martin

WWI Ace 01-06-2008 03:15 AM

Are ya gonna paint it red Martin? Steve
