Default I have a problem

I have more engines than kits. This is worrisome.

The problem is not so much that I have too many engines. No, the problem is that they are not on airframes and flying.

I think I need to build... (diabolical laugh)

You guys are always willing to help. What a group...

Gizmo, I'm tempted to send you one of my engines for the price of shipping. I've got a K&B .40 that is charred black on the inside, locked up, has stripped glow plug threads, broken cooling fins, cracked crank case, and the carburetor is broken off. It's also missing the drive plate and the threads on the crankshaft don't look right. It makes a fine paper weight if you don't mind the grease marks it leaves.

2000 engines........in individual boxes would probably fill up the entire bed of a full size pickup truck.....up even with the top of the cab?
[figure the boxes are 6" x 6" x 4".]

If each engine averaged 3/4 pound, that would max out a 3/4 ton pick up truck's [legal] load capacity....right..?
That engine collection weighs about as much as a 3 fully assembled small block V-8 engines.

No doubt about it...!
I had a small amount of model plane engines in a cabinet in my barn. Rats or mice found their way into the cabinet. They chewed up the cardboard boxes and their urine ruined some of the cast aluminum.

I see you got your Head Banger back...!
He probably just needed a vacation, maybe even a neck operation..?
We are coming up on the 70th anniversary of the break through at St Lo this year.
It would be interesting to speak with some 80+ years olds to hear what they remember about life back then.

And the 70th anniversary of the sinking of the St. Lo, also marking the 70th anniversary of the first major vessel sunk via kamikaze attack.

I put a .32SX on a Dynaflite Butterfly. That helped to clear a small spot on the shelf that I quickly filled with another OS .20FS

I'm also working on a home for the Jett FIRE .56LX, but it's coming along slowly.

I know what I'd have put in the Butterfly ,that OS 20 FS is perfect up front . I do use a 26 in mine which is in the shop for a regeneration. Yours Paul T

I agree with you that the .20FS would have been a better match for that airframe. I have an old OS .19 steel fin with an articulating baffle that I wanted to use, but this thing built out way too tail heavy. with the .19 or .20 on the front and the battery pack up against the firewall, I still needed a ton of lead to make it balance right.

The .32SX is not an ideal match to the airframe, but it helped me get the CG right without any lead and it idles really well, so it works out okay. Hand launches are a joke with this setup. I'm running a 10x4 prop and I can just about point it straight up and let it go.

The next one I build will probably get a 2" extension to the nose.

Just read your post regarding the 2 inch in the nose I use about 1&3/4'' with about 15 degrees down thrust, this works fine on my butterfly's. Still on the rebuilds with a new Kit in stock.
