RE: Zenoah G-45 Performance Specs

I have this engine on a Stinger 120 arf. I use a bambula 20-8, and can accelerate going straight up from takeoff, snap and then keep pulling straight up. I'd guess the plane weighs about 13-14...

RE: Non-Lozenge Scheme for Fokker DVII

Got this one from Dan-San in CA. Documented scheme, of which there are a handful from the Raben Jasta mid to late 1918.

RE: BUSA Fokker DVII

With the way I fly, I'd be the dummy if I used that engine on the front of an airplane I flew!
Cool though.

RE: BUSA Fokker DVII

RP, the Gary Allen system for installing the L/G wing is really quite nice, and I think it could be easily retrofitted to your gear. There are pictures of it in the RCSB thread I posted the link to...

RE: BUSA Fokker DVII

Vertical Grimance, that sounds like it is going to be a beauty. How about a couple of pictures? My LG is modeled after the Gary Allen design, and definitely does help with my higher all up weight,...

RE: TF FW-190 spring air retracts

I have a set of 1/5 scale FW retracts made by Spring air. Excellent product. They didn't offer the struts at the time I got these. One plus with the Spring Air product is that you can buy a...

RE: BUSA Fokker DVII

I did some mods to the kit, mainly using a more scale L/G setup. If you look at post #101, you'll see my comments about the design. Here is a flight shot and some engine mounting shots.

RE: BUSA Fokker DVII

This is the best choice of engine if you keep the tail light. My BUSA D7 weighs over 25 pounds, and the old style G-38 does the job in a scale like fashion. It flies very nice. Enjoy.

RE: Source for thin wall steel tubing 2 make cannisters?

RE: Source for thin wall steel tubing 2 make cannisters?

Sorry but I'm not familiar with a Budwiser metal bottle? Do you mean a beer can? That thin aluminum would be tough to braze. Can you fill a tee-totaler in?
Thanks.

I know fellows who fly Fugi and have been very pleased. The biggest drawback to that line seems to be parts costs. While I have no personal experience, I've read horror stories about replacement...

RE: Found a nice radial powered fw-190 on google

I think that is the Airworld plane? It has the longish nose and odd vertical fin. Still, It looks and sounds great. FWs are my favorite plane. Great design.

RE: Tuned pipe/canister for G-62?

I recall someone, perhaps in the Southern Hemisphere manufactures a 100" wingspan Chippy kit. Anyone know a source?

RE: Here's a question for Walbro experts...

RCBILL, The tygon can't handle the heat where it comes out of the engine. It will get soft, and eventually start to leak. I found that out on my Poulan 46.

I changed the carb today. It would...

Thanks Ralph and Jim. That makes sense. Those are the spots where a pressure leak can't be seen when running. The engine has a suspect lineage. I bought it from a guy who bought it from a guy who...
