RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

You are correct, dont ever use paper gaskets on any Rc muffler!! Clean both engine and muffler with alcohol. Spread a very thin amount on both sides of red permatex (high temp silicone from any...

RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

Does this engine have enough power to Hover your 7 pound Katana? Did you weight come out exactly at 7 pounds box stock with this engine on?

RE: Hangar 9 30cc P-47 Build Thread

Curt,

Just curious on your thoughts of using auxiliary power instead of powering the retracts through the Rx? Robart says you can do either in the instructions, but I was wondering the...

RE: RotoFlow Fuel Tanks

Its a gimmick. Its heavy with all that brass. The seals wont last and when one fails, you will suck air and leak fuel in your plane. Could result in a dead stick. Proven tank is dubro or sullivan...

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 125 Balance point

The pulse 125 floats well. Mine is toward the back of the range they show in the manual, more AFT but still in the manual range. Dont make it nose heavy you dont need it. Also, consider moving...

RE: Hangar 9 30cc P-47 Build Thread

Spridal,

Your question above I don't understand how is it holding up with a DLE 55. It should really be turned around, how does it hold up with the Evo 40, which is heavier. The DLE 55 is...

RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

I think you can get that 3 ounces of weight back by carrying 3 ounces less fuel....don't forget about the fuel difference, its not really a weight issue. As a matter of fact, you now have ability to...

RE: DLE-85 85cc Gas Engine at troybuiltmodels.com

I like the carb they have a long throw arm in the picture, nicer looking throttle hookup, but I don't see an integrated choke lever hole?

RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

I have been doing some calculation on weight vs. the Evolution 60NX engine.

Evolution 10cc Gas is 23 ounces all in. (book says 22 but I used the guy that weighed it on a scale in this forum)...

RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

I expect this to be a top quality engine. I have an Evolution 80GX and an Evolution 26GX gas engines. I also have some other DLE and an OS and a Zenoah. I have to say that the two Evolution...

RE: HANGAR 9 PULSE 125 XT

I would not say the Revolver is more aerobatic, they are both basic beginner to intermediate airobatic planes. The Pulse 125 is much larger than the revolver 70. I have one and yes it does float in...

RE: NEW DLE 20cc Gasser! (Data & Links 1st Post)

I agree fully, the seam means nothing and may not work in all instances. You have to do it the right way with a TDC gauge, dial indicator, and degree wheel. Mine was definately at 38 BTDC and I flew...

RE: NEW DLE 20cc Gasser! (Data & Links 1st Post)

My DLE 20 has not been running as perfect as I like, so I checked a few things over and one of them was ignition timing. The book says 28-30 degrees BTDC for the Rxcel ignition. So I made up my...

RE: New Hangar 9 1/4 Scale P 18 Super Cub

Would it be stupid to put smoke on this unit? Would there be room for the tank and the pump?

RE: NEW DLE 20cc Gasser! (Data & Links 1st Post)

This is not a DLE 20 problem, but a geometry problem. Use a long arm on your carb and a small one on your servo. Set your travel to 100% on high and low and adjust the angle and the lenght of the...

RE: makeing smoke oil

Does super dri smoke oil eat up covering and foam, or is it safe on covering. Maybe it never forms oil on your covering in the first place to eat it up...hence the term super dri?

RE: New Hangar 9 1/4 Scale P 18 Super Cub

I think based on what was said above, they have it set up for a G26 magneto. G26 EI will be lighter and need lead, but even this is very heavy compared to a DLE30. So I do not agree with above...
