Moses Magnets
These tiny to miniscule size magnets are nickel plated rare earth magnets used by model builders for securing removable wings, nose blocks, or other plane parts that will survive a hard landing because they simply detach from the fuselage upon impact. Although very small and light, these magnets are extremely powerful. Click on each image to see larger view. Read Dave's how-to for choosing and installing Moses Magnets.

Winders for Rubber Powered Planes

Choose from 3 gear ratios.

Winder
The yellow winders are made by KP in the United Kingdom. You can choose from 15:1 or 10:1 gearing. They look the same on the outside but the gearing on the inside determines the number of winds on the rubber motor for each turn of the crank.

15:1 winder ($24.00)


10:1 winder ($24.00)



Winders This blue and white winder is a 5:1 winder. One turn of the crank results in 5 winds on the rubber motor.

Easy HingesEasy Hinges Easy Hinges
Easy Hinges solve the problem of hinging control surfaces. They are made of incredibly strong material that will hold up to the most severe punishment that an avid R/C flyer can give to his aircraft. These hinges are more than adequate in both size and strength for all aircraft through quarter scale. Do not let the small size fool you. The word “easy” in Easy Hinges means just that, simple to install!
