Re: Different Epoxy for Different purpose??

I figure it's worth chiming in as it seems everyone has their own preferred epoxy systems. For me, I routinely use 4 different types of adhesives for my builds. This has recently changed as well so it's good to document when changes occur. 1. JB Weld - for Motor Retainers/bonding metal to a motor mo...

Re: Who bought Gorilla Motors?

...I found it rich that Tripoli TMT... I'm not sure he was acting on behalf of the TMT. His words read, to me, as though he felt he was now in a privileged position and could use that to get the information he wanted to satisfy his own curiosity. It was full of 'I' and 'Me', not 'us' or 'we'. Then ...

Re: Who bought Gorilla Motors?

I checked the wayback machine and it wasn't there. I also had a look at Google Cache and they didn't have the aforementioned comments cached. Apologies Dave, I should have screenshotted it when I had the chance. As per regulations and motors, I found it rich that Tripoli TMT was trying to extract th...

Re: Who bought Gorilla Motors?

There might be a requirement in the regulations to that requires those changes be reported, but it was handled in a very peremptory way. Who's regulations? Most motor manufacturers do hobby stuff as a pittance of a side business when compared to their core business of selling big motors to the like...

Re: Who bought Gorilla Motors?

Yeah it was the self-entitled demand that he attempted to hide under a veil of officialdom that got my back up. Admitting he'd done wrong was a step in the right direction(I suspect he was advised to do so), but I didn't see any apology to Jim, not publicly anyway. I didn't see any admission of wro...

Re: Who bought Gorilla Motors?

Did you catch that thread before it got 'cleaned up'? Wow. Wow indeed. I found it pretty comical the demands people were making of Jim, especially when he's sold his wholly owned private business and explicitly stated in the OP that he was not at liberty to announce the new owners. And yet like mot...

Re: Airframe choices (or why you should consider rolling your own airframes)

Nice job. Rolling your own airframe is a great thing to do to optimise it for your application. I have made the decision to just buy airframes as I have so little time to do the projects I want to do anyway. It is the only thing that makes sense to me in my situation. That's very prudent. I'm not l...
