M1.7 Fu-Fix Bearing Kits

Such a simple product is fast becoming very important in getting the best out of your servos. Here's the latest addition to the range, M1.7 for those tiny Hyperion DS09AMDs. Perhaps we'll see some on a DLG! Not that that was the intention, DS09AMD are sub 9g servos used in the tail and ailerons of many e-soarers and not necessarily small ones, as they are one of the recommended choices for a couple of 4m Vladimir Models' planes!

Even, the plastic geared Hyperion DS09SCD can use the same shaft as it is close enough to recut  the thread using just the M1.7 shaft. They add approx 2 g but the benefits in reducing head rock can mean your surfaces can feel much more rigid and of course your servo can experience less wear.
The shafts are all with the lastest design with flats next to the arm and at the end giving greater versatility in how you mount the servo and bearing housing. So now, anywhere you can fit the servo, you can fit the bearing kit!

Here’s the updated range before I put it up on the main website:     

Hyperion DS09AMD,
Hyperion DS11AMB.
(Also Hyperion DS09SCD using M1.7 shaft to re-cut thread).
Savox 255.
Hitec 65, 81, 85,125 (and all Digi versions),
Hyperion DS095FMD,
All MKS 6125 variants Incl DS6100 and DS6188,
Hyperion DS13 range.
Futaba 3150/3155,
Sanwa 762 (Airtronics 94761Z), JR/Graupner wing servos,
Turnigy aluminium A55H,
Hyperion DS16 range.

Fu-Fix bearing kits are now sponsoring Team Haley for F3B and F3J in the UK. T

Schwing- James Hammond's new classic

Today has been a big day for Sloperacer. After a long and protracted period, James Hammond's 2.25m new X tail is finally 'born'- the Schwing 88! Sloperacer is the exclusive Worldwide distributor and aims to bring in this model at around the £400-450 mark at launch. Prototype testing and graphic design are in progress and the first production models are just an agonising few months 
Improvements over James's previous designs include a thinned section towards the tips and elevator instead of all moving tail. The joiner and spar is huge and like all his designs it just looks so right!

Out of the Workshop to support UK F3F

Have I really been in the workshop for that long? My apologies for the lack of news but I hope you understand that making sure I get your models posted on time or built to the standard you expect has been my top priority.

Sloperacer has an un-rivalled record of supporting UK slope racing and I’m delighted to both be supporting the UK F3F team’s assault on the worlds championships and the winter league climax Champion of Champions race at the HoH this year.

Working with Ian at Willow, both prizes from Sloperacer will be a Willow F3F but I know others are also supporting UK F3F so keep checking for up-dates. Now I’ve started again there will be regular up-dates to the Blog, including news of in-coming model shipments.
