operable engine for zero

Postby snapdragon » Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:36 am

On the deag forum website for this model (UK) there has been a posting saying that if there is sufficient interest then there will be a limited number of "working engines" for the model complete with engine sound. Cost is £100

Here is a Youtube link showing the engine and sound

Showing it actually working on the model

I believe condolences are in order Snap . My dancing girl tells me your zero has come a cropper at the hands of your nephew again .

She says you should banish your nephew from your house . As you have now lost a Stuka , one of your zeros. You really do have bad luck never quite finish any of your models do you . Terribly awful bad luck you have . She passes on her heart felt sorrow .

Also just to say please keep your nephew away from my stash

Pity, mind you something could be cobbled together as I'm sure a suitably sized brushless motor would swing the metal prop and there ARE plenty of sound modules out there, hmmmmm :think: .

Official Despatch from Hobby Room

Zero 001 is overdue and MIA!

Not to worry.

Yes indeed. Zero trashed by nephew! Aparantly the flight test from the hobby room window was a disaster when the motor failed to start and the glide path was wrong!

Very little could be recovered from twisted and bent remains and debris trail and scatter! Any small screws etc will be recovered and put in a box along with any remains etc.

Pilot is missing a leg and head is at a very curious angle. there are also two unsightly lumps in his neck. Medics say that he is unlikley to recover or be much use anymore to anyone!

Pack 1 will be re-ordered on Thursday.

Nephew is now stuck to a chair when visiting and only released when parents come home. :angry-banghead: :violin:

I am now looking at a different glue to put this together and have emailed loctite to ask them if their 326 glue is suitable!

Failing that, I will need a very small TIG welder or really small rivets!

Do you want a motor set Morrigan? You could pay me through PAYPAL and I could put an extra order in

FOR SALE


1 Nephew.

Small, cheap to feed easy to please but has destructive tendencies. Has strange imagination.

Any reasonable offer.

Will despatch with sandwiches, fizzy drink and road map.

was that the nephews guinea pig flying the (not yet skinned) model??,
no thanks, not buying any more children, we managed to get the last 3 without any money involved and won't start paying now...
try advertizing in china, as demand has grown rapidly with partworks aeroplanes (notably stuka and zero) they surely need new workforce :mrgreen:
