    ORIGINAL: Don B.H.

    Wll in the first photo you see my old Enya .19VIΒ*and it fit then a I pulled out the Magnum .15XLS and refit the smaller engine now I am waiting for the new OS.10LA engines to getΒ* here. That is holding up 2 planes now this one and the Ringmaster Jr and now I need smaller lines,Β* So I ordered some .12 cable 7 strand.
    I have .15 byΒ*55 ft. but they will be to large I think....
    Β*
    I am doing all this because I want the stellar performance.....
    The ton
    Don,

    This is a picture of an La 10 set up for C/L.
    The venturi is from Jim Lee Machine shop and the Needled valve assembly is the now unobtainable assembly that OS used to make for the FP 10. The muffler is a custom unit by Scott Reise that also fits the LA and FP10/15 engines. The venturis are easy to obtain, the NVA's are unobtanium.

    RE: Starting a P-40 By Brodak

    I wasn't following this thread but the AP .09 and .15 which is just an overbored .09 are still being made. They are much cheaper than OS stuff and almost as good.  I just flew my AP .15 with a homemade venturi/needle valve and it went pretty good. I got dizzy anyway.  A carb and needle need to be scrounged.  I have seen an .09 with a control line carb and needle, but don't know if they are still available.  A pressure fitting can be screwed in the top of an insert and a remote needle or whatever.  They are a BB rear exhaust which is kind of kool, and $35.

    RE: Starting a P-40 By Brodak

    The one with the black head is the .15 and the c/l needle and carb. The other one is the .09 with the muffler hole enlarged and a new stinger to allow it. I also made an exh. extension for a pipe or? They are kind of the new chinese Cox replacement IMHO.

    Hi Aspeed, I believe the AP .09 and .15 are 4 1/2 oz and 5 oz engines. If that's true,

    then they are way too heavy for the wing area of the Sterling repros and Ringmaster Jr.

    Their performance would be seriously compromised by the heavy resulting wing loadings.

    I think The AP .09 would work okay in a Flite Streak Jr or an Ackromaster and the AP .15

    would do very well powering a Profile Peacemaker.

    RE: Starting a P-40 By Brodak

    Yes, I just weighed the .09 and it is 5.0 oz. without the muffler but with the rc carb.  The .15 would not weigh any more than the .09.  I like the Norvel .074 too. Just waiting for a project to put mine in.

    That doesn't look like any of the mufflers my OS .10's have.  they are smaller dia. and about the same length with the little extention that comes with them.

    RE: Starting a P-40 By Brodak

    I built a Ringmaster Jr. in the mid-fifties and it flew OK with an OK Cub. 099 and McCoy .098.

    It flew even better with a McCoy .09 diesel and a K&B Greenhead .09. A Cox TD .09 would be another great choice.

    Later engines such as the OS, Magnum and Thundertiger .10 engines are much heavier and when you add the muffler it makes a small model like a Ringmaster Jr. a bit nose heavy.

    Muffler, we don't need no stinking muffler.
    I know we need to be responsible now days and act like adults. I fly in the country just south of Mason Dixon line and the closest farm is 3/4 miles away. This one will make some noise...

    So how is that Me-109 coming I know youhave been building ringmasters and P-40s and akromaserts but come on I want to see theMe-109.
    I ordered one but they were out of stock so I got the Brodak Ringmaster Si and another ring Jr. You see I have 5 Grandsons and they will be
    the right age soon.

    Well! as it just so happens, the ME-109 is ready to go except for breaking the engine in ...The tail wheel area has been repainted to cover the off color fabric reinforcement and the spinner is going to be the correct size. Thanks for asking!

    I'm thinking for this 27.5 inch (700 mm) span P-40 airplane would be well suited for a Gilbert .11 Thunderhead engine. To keep the nose light, one could leave the twin muffler stacks off.

    I've got a Midwest P-40 Warhawk 33" CL kit, targeting my McCoy .19 Red Head for it. Clearing my plate of other projects, it will be a future build.

    RE: Starting a P-40 By Brodak

    I have those needle valves and i got them from the same person in FL but I don't know if they work on the 10LA.
    The spray bar may be to long and the enya 15 is larger but the .09 may work.
    If any one is looking for an old Veco or Perfect tank let me know.

    A friend of mine had a hobby shop and closed it up about 20 years agoso I got a big box of stuff like wheels,tanks,and hundreds of little bags of parts like bell cranks, lead out wires, eyelets, blind nuts and on and on. I will never use it all. I will never use theJetex fuel pellets.
