Thanks Bill!

Not sure what RCG issues you are talking about, but everything there works perfectly for me. This place is still a train wreck! I can't even stay logged in, even after following all the "delete cookies" instructions! I do hope they get it straightened out at some point!

Ralph,
That extension really looks good,
This piece of art made me think of something crazy, Infact I'm thinking of possiblity of making a header and a tuned pipe out of aluminium or heat resistant epoxy for my tiny curare.
I will be very pleased to know more about calculating the true dimensions of the header and the pipe in this size. I haven't ever heared of using pipe on a .07 size engine, If it will be a working machine or at least does not down regulate the engine performance, I think it worths to try my chance.

Thanks Ehsan!

A carbon fiber tuned pipe would be very cool on your Tiny Curare! Very light as well!

Hi Ralph,

i really enjoyed your build. You did a fabulous job and your attention to detail is amazing. I flew Dirty Birdies and UFO's in the 70's and early 80's in competition. Like you were inspired by Mike's Blue Angel build I'm inspired by yours. I need a break from giant scale to build something from my roots. Even though I have glass kits of both I've been hoarding through the years I'd like to do an all wood version.

How did the maiden go? I'm sure it was fine but I was hoping for a flight report.

Thanks for taking the time to do a thread on a great build.

Bill
