    It is nice to have landing gear on those. Much better than a dolly, with shaft runs.

    The Turbo thread is an M8 x .75. The place I went to had it in stock for about $12 I think. I have a few 1/4"-32 taps. Ace used to carry them at one time. I don't think I will use it much any...

    I don't think an 11 foot glider will need to be 'eased off'. A wire made into a hook can be run through the fuselage, and pull the fuel line through the hole to kink the line for a shutoff. That...

    Looks like we all have them, and no one flies the piped ones. I have flown the combat one about ten times. It really is pretty good so far. My box on the one looks like yours Mr. Cox, and it is...

    Here is a pic of the earlier combat one. Much cruder casting. It is only about 500 rpm less than a real Rossi which it was copied from. I use it whenever a field doesn't require a muffler. I...

    Wow, I go to sleep, and there are 13 posts. I have a couple of these. Sad to hear they need new rods, I likely won't bother getting them, although I need another one that is probably the same for...

    I can't find a reasonably priced 11/32 - 32 tap, and I already have a tap for the turbo plugs. I get the plugs for $5 from Merlin. They are the same price as his Nelsons and even the regular ones. ...

    Ya, it would be better to get a suitable head. A hacksaw and belt sander may work too. I thought I would use that method, to get the worst of it off, and then put it on the lathe to finish it up. ...

    I have had most rust on bearing cages, not the balls or races. The K&B bearings had some kind of plastic that always seems to gum up in a few days, but loosens when you use it. I guess the plastic...

    I only used 80% nitro for a record attempt type flight. I would never use it in a 4 stroke. The rules are now 10% fuel in all the speed classes so it doesn't matter. A good rule IMHO, the .049's...

    We used to run 50 to 80% nitro in our motors. If we did not use after run oil, it would rust the piston cyl. in a few hours. That was of course before ABC came along. We normally used...

    You could just get a friend with a lathe to turn the fins mostly off. I just got a .32F at a swap meet on the weekend too. I will have to make a head, or plug and rethread the glow plug thread hole...

    That is the famous FSR. It is a classic that goes forever. Fairly fast too, as ringed motors go. I am not a historian, but would guess the mid 1980's.

    Keep everything stiff as has been said like the other things. Also make the horn long and the servo hole as close to the middle as you can. Lots of people put in high and low rates, but the...
