    I wouldn't put twin 55's on a Kougar. It's way too much engine and as the gentleman said - it won't fly all that great with the extra weight. Twin .30's would be the most I'd put on a Kougar.

    It...

    I probably should have mentioned that but finding a Duellist shoiuldn't be too difficult depending on what you're willing to pay. A lot of Pica's kits were Dave Platt designs.

    Another vote for Dave Platt's Duellist. I personally think it's one of the sexiest model aircraft ever designed.

    Just go to your shop and start cutting wood. An Ugly Stik takes a couple weeks to scratch build. it's the simplest plane there is as far as traditional wood planes go. Just make up an airfoil that...

    049flyer - you take off 1/2A planes from the ground? Throttle or not I hand launch mine.

    Extra hammy for their video. It got to be a bit much so I just muted it. The language didn't bother me, but I've spent more than my share of time around guys who overplay their "enthusiasm" and it...

    I almost always run new engines on a stand before committing them to a plane. Back in the day I would break in the engine on the stand but that's not really necessary with modern engines. Probably...

    I did read through that but I guess I didn't put 2+2 together regarding the thunder tiger engine. Thanks.

    Don't lean on my about the Norvel though. I haven't run mine. I have some Benol in my...

    Years ago someone told me the OS .40 conrod would fit the Royal but I didn't get one then and now that engine is out of production too. Not a huge big deal. I just don't like having things that...

    I haven't taken the Norvel apart but I can tell you that it looks like quality everywhere I look at it. I think it's a very nice looking engine. Not having run it or even disassembled it I can't...

    After all the advanced mathematics I did, it turns out that fitting an 8 ounce tank is going to be a problem. So all this gas sipping you folks are talking about is good news. Looks like a 6 ounce...

    From the photos it looks like everything. The skin is delaminating, the spars are failing, the ribs are coming apart. Normally ribs don't have to do much but shape things, but the spars are...

    It went down on the second flight? So sorry man. I've lost a lot of planes but nothing with that kind of money in it. But some with tons of time. I know what that feels like. I wish people...

    Yeah, that's pretty much how I work it out as well too. But this is a whole different kind of engine so I don't have a baseline.

    Thanks Pope. I just have to take the info you've given me and do some simple math.

    mumbles..... err.... this is a word problem.

    Given miscellaneous size tank filled to some capacity.

    I have one last question and I think I'm good unless I start having problems running this engine.

    What kind of run times are you getting from what size tanks? I'd like to go as small as possible...

    Honestly, I don't buy lottery tickets. The best description I've ever heard on them is they're a tax on people who can't do math.

    However, a co-worker gave me one a couple years ago of the...

    Woo Hoo! And I found the instructions. They are one of the maybe 10 items that actually made it into the binders when I got started organizing.

    Ok, I figured it out. There was a piece of junk in there. Now it works right. It was in the slot the throttle stop screw rides in.

    If I back out the throttle stop the carb will turn in all the way. The barrel isn't jamming.

    You know how a normal throttle stop screw works. You can turn it in and stop the barrel from closing...

    Looking at the engine again, I exaggerated. The throttle is open about 1/32" at it's widest and that's as much as I can close it AND have the throttle stop screw in far enough to keep the barrel...
