Here are some basic tips to help you understand how to use it before you have your first go. (not nice to break it on your first go.)
With RC it is a good idea to be in a large area, so you can work out how fast it is. ( if there is a tree or gutter, in the area, yes, good guest you will hit it.)
Do not run on a public street or highway.
Do not run in water or sand.
If you keep pulling the throttle trigger on the transmitter, the vehicle will keep accelerating and run very fast. It is difficult to steer the vehicle running at high speed until you become used to driving. Drive the vehicle slowly by pulling the throttle trigger to the fullest and quickly releasing it.
You can turn the vehicle right or left while running.
When the vehicle is running towards you, you need to operate the steering wheel in the opposite direction to the operation when the vehicle is running away from you.
Practice turning the vehicle, referring to the following.
Rather than just paying attention to the direction of the steering wheel, imagine that you are at the centre of the steering wheel, looking ahead of the vehicle, to turn in the direction you like.
Once you become conformable driving the vehicle, practice driving on a track with cones.
Keep practising until you feel comfortable with steering, throttle and brake at low speeds
next try using reverse.
When you have mastered the basics you will be able to drive at higher speeds in a more controlled fashion.
Nearly everyone thinks they can drive a RC, It is sad when they return for parts for there RC, the same day or next day. Take it slow, learn about your RC.
Did you know you should never leave your batteries connected in your RC, Always disconnect, your batteries when you are not using your RC.
In this firing there was only five pieces of pottery.
The pottery plate below.
This plate had stain colours mixed with a base glaze. Some colours burnt out.
I should of put a clear glaze over the top of the colours. To run your fingers over the colours on the plate, it is very rough.
Out side was a blue glaze painted on. the kiln was to hot the glaze burnt off in places.
Great test plate. With what the colours did.
Nice colours over all.
The two pictures below is rutile blue glaze , love the different colours this glaze shows.. It is all to do with the different way you apply the glaze. Retile Recipe I use. Where you place your pottery in the kiln, also shows different colours in the glaze.
In the last picture the kiln was to hot on one side, that is when the brown colour comes out.
This bowl, with the dragon fly, is a transfer picture in the middle . Clear glaze over the top.
Outside Tenmoku glaze, the colour did burn out a bit. Nice bowl. The bowl is patchy brown colour. It is nice.
The pot below , This planter had a green glaze and a blue glaze. One side was good, to hot for other side the glaze burnt off in places. The pot it self is very rough on the outside. Nice colours.
This is my master piece. I made it by joining three small pots together. It has a lot of different colour glazer painted on. On some parts of the pot the glaze did get a bit hot, so some places it is a bit rough to handle.
This piece will be reglazed. This pieces will go back for a second firing.
That is it for on of my the second shelf gas kiln firing , learning something every time firing I Fire.
Making every thing from Small Plates to Large Plates, Cup, Bowl, Planters and more.
Hand building clay pottery or wheel pottery.
Making a clay plate take a while to get to the end product. First thing you have to make something. then before it dries, you trim it to make it nice and smooth, some of my pottery is not even, I am not compressing/ smoothing out, taking the excess water away. After that you have to wait about a week for it to dry. If you put wet pottery in the kiln, it will brake, Shatter in to pieces. Broken pottery only good for the bin.
If you can not build your own pottery, have not got time. you can buy bisque wear pottery. You can paint it, or get it glazed. buy Bisque wear pottery
The large plate in the picture above, it has been put in the kiln and fired once. So it has been bisque fired, then it goes in for it’s glazing stage. Glazing pottery you have special mixers of coloured glazes that you cover on you pottery, the plate below I brushed painted lots of different colours. Lastly the pottery is put in a kiln (very hot oven) and fired to 1280 or more. Take about 8 hours to fire glazed pottery. Below the picture of the plate after glazing. I like colour.
Weight of this plate is 1200g
High 50mm, Width 210mm.
Before the pot was put in kiln, for glaze firing. You can see the glaze on it.
The pottery after the glaze firing.
It had a rutile white in the middle, then a brush on glaze on the out side and a glaze put on the top.
