There are 18 pages on torque meters so I'll jump the queue and ask - has any info been published on a torque meter suitable for UK BMFA mini vintage (30g rubber in 12 strands)
thanks

Hi Bill, whatever torque meter you use for your 12 strand coupes will work equally well for your 12 strand MV motors. You do use a torque meter on your coupes?....

Yes I do. Thanks Gavin. It's Trish who wants it - she's unhappy that she isn't piling on the turns every time.

Ah, well, same answer as before but you'll (sorry she'll) have to use a short winding rod as well because a coupe torque meter isn't long enough. That's how I manage on the odd occasion these days that I fly MV. Otherwise Trish will need to make a long enough meter with the same (ish) torque response. The CD Forum report of a few years ago has a good article by Joe Flynn covering various wire/length/torque combinations and its from there that I built my meter. You need to get up to 40+inch ounces of torque for 12 of 1/8th. Unless making a new meter appeals then just make up a simple winding rod extension, it works fine.
