    New Product Dancing Wings 30cc Savage Bobber

    I have built one of their small kits for something to do during our lockdown last year it was their 1 meter span Tiger Moth, a very well made and fitting laser cut kit, but with some unconventional building techniques, it to my surprise flew like a dream. This kind of thing is what they were...

    New Product Dancing Wings 30cc Savage Bobber

    Paolo Severin made a 1/4 scale storch kit with a welded stainless steel fuse and it was fine. Also the Zlin company in the Czech Republic builders of the full scale Bobber also make a steel framed model in both 1/3 scale and 1/2.5 scale which are super slow flyers, so it is possible to make a...

    Different version, the one I pictured is a Chinese manufacturer. Dancing wings. Waiting to see the specs and price, will not compare to the Zlin version of course, but it does have a tubular welded fuselage and welded gear. Might be worth it for a lot less money. DW has been upping there game...

    110" TIMBER Assembly Thread

    Sounds like a lame excuse, but nothing is out of the question these days. Hey, After watching your video, I am puzzled by something. You added a ton of weight to the back of your Timber. I have the exact same set up now, but my batteries are located just behind the left side hatch opening and...

    Ready to rock and roll again finally. Here is my take on installing the cub gear. a lot of finesse work left to the builder, but i like a challenge. pics show that I used "beer can" technology to fabricate needed shims to remove slop (both on axles and the main gear legs pivot ). added small...

    gear came today, did a trial fit, all the brackets bolt right on, no mis alignment, but there needs to be some adjusting and additional engineering of the pivots. loose as Nick mentioned and the brackets are spread some, no big deal but I will bush the holes in the triangle piece and use...
