I did look at the price but its out of reach at the moment. i have the sea fury showing up soon and i need to pay for that. also my P40 was damaged today as the heap of junk robart retracts gave out again. this time it was halfway through a takeoff roll! anyway it needs new retracts.

Caraosel, You had one of those days as well[&o] We had 3 planes go down today. A PZ habou lost all radio (spectum), My Bixler with its maiden FPV run. Lost RX just after take off, and she went in to some sort of fail-safe. Its not set up for it. She circled going over the water untill she went swimming. rescued 3 hours later about 800m off shore. Then My MX2 after 3 batteries of hard flying I lost her in the sun. she hit the deck flat and broke its back.....
Should have stayed in bed..[:@]

I had a similar experience. to begin with i forgot a part of my jayracer and had to go get it, then one of the wing mount nuts fell out of the P40 and that needed fixing, then the jayracer engine was very unhappy as there was crap in the carb so the left cylinder wouldnt run, then i got that sorted but the P40 then had its wheels fall off, another guy pulled an elevator off his 3d thing bt managed to get it down. so no fatalities but the repair bench will be busy for sure!

Yup, I know what you guys mean. Fouled a spark plug last week and my flight box battery went south. This week my gas pump went south so I couldn't fuel my plane. Nothing major but frustrating anyway. I am wait for my Keleo exhaust ring for my ASP 400 radial engine. It is time to go back to work on the CMP Zero and the ASP 400 so she will be ready to fly this spring. Best wishes and good safe flying.

My airplane project has been cleaned up, put away, and is on indefinite hold until further notice, due to a family situation.

Tom, those types of sentences never sound good. [] Wish you all the best, whatever the cause is.

I am currently only working on the Stearman, getting it ready for our annual "season opening" in may. Sounds so far away but at my pace I will barely make it.

oh, and thanks to those vultures for those nice "if youre desperate, I will give you 300 cash for the radial" emails. I do not HAVE to sell the radial, I would like to.

Thanks fella's. What's happening is the family matriarch is about to pass. Relatives will be arriving and I had to clear everything out of the living room where I have been assembling the model. Don't know if it will be a week or six.

I ordered the Microsens glow system today for my ASP 400 radial engine. That should be the last item needed to finish my CMP Zero powered by the ASP 400 radial. I will post pictures when the exhaust and glow system arrive and I resume work on the plane.

How well does your engine fit in the cowl ?

I have seen pictures of it fitting fine, but on my own, I had to widen the cowl to fit the engine.
Even now, I think it will rub slightly, as the tolorence is very small. Will see how it turns out.

My cowl may also have to be widened it is very tight and touches the cowl. Great pictures SJN, thanks for sharing. How long are the standoffs that you used to mount the engine?

Really nice job, SJN.

Are you running any offsets on the motor (right prop, down prop etc.) or is it setup dead-square?

Dead square. No room for side thrust.
Rudder and throttle management will be needed during take-off

Ok - thanks

Just another Q, if I may - where is the best location for the height of the fuel tank?

As in, whereabouts are you running your fuel outlet pipe in relation to the input barb on the carburettor? i.e. is the pipe where the fuel comes out of the fuel tank higher, lower, or level to the input pipe?

Or do you go by where the 'clunk' sits in the fuel tank?

I have my tank such that the centerline of thetank is about 10mm above the center of the carb. This is because my engine really has poor suction on startup and gravity can assist in these matters! when in flight i have no issues with the tank position

When the snow melts, and my fingers stop freezing
Still need to do a few things to the zero to get it finished. Just strengthened the retact bays, and installed the landing gear.
Im not too sure if it will hold on this heavy plane....will see how it goes.

Also have to find an inspecter jo get it approved, as it is over the 7kg weight limit.


Saw this video of another cmpro Zero.
It sure seems to fly well with a 22x10 prop.
I wonder what fuel he is useing.
I thought the 20/8 was a good prop ?

I purchased a 20 x 10 Xoar prop for my engine but I have not run it yet. I may also have to change to a 20 x 8 but we will see when I get to the engine break in runs.

SJN, is that high noon in Norway?

We have a club member here in Florida who resides in Aasen, Norway. He's here for an extended period of time, so he joined our club and spends his days at our field.

SJN,

depends on the prop make. I find the 20x10 APC is THE best Prop for my altitude. With 7050 rpm the 400 turns this prop really well.

I had that zeros small sister some years ago.. loved that plane. Good match for my FT-160..

I have found the 21x8 menz @ 6600 rpm works well on the 400. the problem is there are so many props and so many models getting a good combo is not always easy!
