    I have found the Fox Mirical plug to be a very good plug for most engines. I use them exclusivly in my 4 strokes (Satoe's, OS's, Webra's) with excellent results. They work well in my 2 strokes as...

    Even the so called fuel proof Rustoleum needs to cure (it cures, not dries) for at least 20 to 30 days to be reasonably fuel resistant.

    You may have to increase the size of the V=tail surfaces to about 130% of the original elevator/stab area to get the same pitch control that you had with the original stab/elevator surface area.

    John
    Buckner has given you some very good advice. The one place that may now have some exceptions is the use of the low self discharge NiMh designs such as the Eneloop's. They do seem to hold a...

    I have also witnessed where a 2.4GHz system was interfered with by an electronic ignition system. While 2.4 is more tolerant of RF interference than the old 72, 75 and 6 meter frequencies, it is not...

    It may be that the LVC (low voltage cut off) is doing that. If your battery is not in good shape or has inadequate C rating, the voltage may be dropping below LVC when the current exceed the...

    While I have no valid data to substantiate this, I'd recommend that you do not do this. Now, some of the engines do route this vent back to the intake venture but I've never been a fan of that...

    Note that different brands of servos operate in different directions with the same transmitter command. Just change out the one servo you want to reverse with a different brand. You will have to...

    Calvinman, if you are having problems with all your engines it is not the fuel or the glow plugs. Most probably it is something that is getting into your engine which causes a coating over the...

    The laquer thinner works okay but, when done with that, use some hot soapy water to wash the thinner out of the brush. It is surprising how well hot soapy water works to clean most things.

    I hope the batteries were removed from that radio before it was put on the shelf. It probably used carbon/zinc dry cells which can make quite a mess if they leak. If the batteries were NiCad...

    Here is the way I do mine and it seems to work out well. First have the trim control as low as it will go on the transmitter and the throttle at low. Set the servo arm so that it just closes the...

    It is very important to have very good connections between the battery (voltage source ) and the starter. Those small alligator clips or similar just do not cut the mustard as you lose a lot of...

    Sand would be my last choice for anything in the vicinity of a running engine out alone one with a prop blasting air over it. A starting table is by far a better and safer choice.

    First, make sure you have some down thrust in the engine. Second, start out with the CG set at about 25% of the distance between the leading edge of the upper wing and trailing edge of the lower...

    Your comments do not seem logical. In the first place, you should be charging at 0.1C; your 0.1ma charge and 0.2ma discharge is meaningless. You should charge the first charge at about 165...
