For extra security, we often use these horns with M2 stainless cap screws and nyloc nuts.
The cap screws will self-tap into the back plate pilot holes and the addition of the nyloc makes a completely positive vibration resistant connection to the controlled surface.
The cap screw should be minimum length of 8mm plus the thickness of the control surface.

Hatch Magnets
High strength Neodymium permanent magnets

We stock three sizes of small but powerful permanent magnets that are particularly suitable for securing hatches and canopies (glue the magnet in place using  epoxy adhesive and use steel headed screw on the mating part). For extra* pull force magnets can be used on both parts but test the adjoining faces for opposite polarity before securing in place.
*The attraction force will increase using two magnets but will not be double the force from a single magnet and a steel target.

We also stock a larger (10mm dia) size of countersunk magnet which can be
secured with a countersunk screw.
The pull figures are the approx values stated by the manufacturer of each magnet against a steel target
(we know that Kg is not technically a unit of force but this is the term used by the manufacturer!)
Magnets can be dangerous, especially if ingested so please ensure they are kept well away from small children.
We highly recommend that you read and print off the Health & Safety information we have provided by clicking  here .

The 10mm diameter magnets have a central 3mm dia hole and are countersunk to make them easy to mount using either an M3 countersunk screw, or a No 4 gauge countersunk wood screw or self tapper.
If you are using the magnet to attract to a steel target (such as a screw head etc) then either North or South magnets can be used.
If you intend to use two of these magnets for maximum attraction to each other, then you will need
to use one 'North' and one 'South' polarity magnet.
MAG4N is North polarity on the countersunk side, MAG4S is South polarity on the countersunk side

Fuel Filters
For Glow, Diesel and Petrol fuels

We stock filters for glow , diesel and petrol fuels, both with internal filters gauzes that are removable for periodic cleaning. Filters should be fitted between your tank and engine carburettor - and it's a good idea to also use one between your fuel container and filler.
You cannot over-filter your fuel!

Refueling Valve
For Glow and Petrol fuels

by Dubro

Suitable for both glow fuels and petrol, these refuelling valves are great for fully cowled models where fuelling and particularly draining fuel can be a problem. Installed between the tank and carburettor, the valve is installed through a fuselage or cowl wall. Remove the cap, connect your fuelling tube to the inlet nipple, pull the nipple out and this isolates the carburettor and allows direct filling or draining of the fuel tank. Pushing the nipple in re-connects the tank to the carburettor. Also serves as an engine cut-off should you be unable to stop your engine.

*Due to the stiffer material of TygonTM compared to silicon tubing, it may be necessary to stretch the end
 portion of 2.4mm bore TygonTM prior to first fitting of the plug. This can be achieved by immersing the
 end of the tubing in hot water for a short period to soften the tubing before fitting the plug.

 

Glo Starter
Twist and Lock design with 1.2V 1800mAh Nimh battery.

We can highly recommend these small but powerful Glo Starters as we use them ourselves. Many glow starters have a large battery on the end of a long probe which can be a problem particularly where the engine is sideways or inverted mounted - the vibration coupled with the long length and heavy battery makes them difficult to keep in place and its not unknown for the starter to fall into the propeller.
Just push this starter onto the glow plug and with a small clockwise twist the starter grips the glow plug so it will not fall off during starting.
Please note that a mains charger is not included but the starter can be re-charged from the glow plug terminal included with most multi-chargers, from the charging station on many flight-box power panels, or from a charger from an other 1.2v glow starter.
