    I have the 91 of the same vintage, which I believe has the same carb. Had a hard time with it till someone recommended a head shim. At the time, Horizon still carried them. Turned it into an...

    Everyone at the field who saw my OS 26 FS running thought it was the cat's meow. I don't know why these little four strokes are not popular here. I just love 'em.

    Oh, I guess I got that backwards. Yes, stuck down, spring in compression.

    Just ran it on the test stand; started instantly. Ran at the prescribed 4000 rpm for 10 minutes on a 10x5 Zinger, then...

    That sounds about right, except the intake valve was stuck closed. While I had the lids off I did lube everything with a mix of Mobil One and an anti-oxidant oil (Rislone?), and used the heat gun...

    Yeah, I think that's even more than I had. I think in the 1950s when this was designed the 15s and 19s of the day did not have much power. With low power, the stab was fine. Add power and you have...

    I never had trouble with take-off despite having only a .15 for power, but I do remember that the elevator had to be trimmed down somewhat and that's the way I kept it. For takeoff, I started...

    What you are describing would be improved by a bit of stab enlargement, which would give the balance point more leeway. Of course, being a scale model you would have to decide if you wanted to live...

    Interesting photos...I've never seen a PAW like that. The production ones you get now are quite long from prop drive to back plate. I'm sure that's useful in some applications, but for scale models...

    Thanks Hobbsy. Your rpm on that prop is fantastic...if mine comes even close I will be extremely happy.

    Too bad they don't make those Bolly props anymore. I picked up some 9.5x5s and 8.5x4s when...
  10. Saito 30 catches when turned over...damage?

    I picked up a Saito 30 that looks like it has never been run, but it had been sitting on someone's shelf for many years. When I turned it over it would stick momentarily. I couldn't quite get the...

    Steve, you say it wasn't a good flying airplane...can you describe the symptoms? Do you know the incidences on the two wings? I'm curious as to what was wrong. A fellow in our club built a GLT...

    I love my small size engines and do not understand why anyone would have a problem with them. Yes, they are old tech, but so is the Livewire Champ!

    Modern engines are more powerful per cu. in.,...

    I do exactly the same thing; I always weigh the kit wood provided for any parts aft of the CG and replace them from my own stock if they are heavy material. Sometimes I make balsa 2-ply and...

    What's the bolt spacing on the exhaust? If it''s 32 mm, which it might be, then you're in luck...just get the OS 25 FP/LA muffler. It's very good and reasonably light. If it's 27.5 mm there are...

    I thought of the Lenape Cub right away too! Probably wouldn't scale out very well though. Either the engine would be too big and heavy for the plane, or the cylinders would look too small on the...

    It sounds like you've done some good experiments and learned a lot from the plane. But I still think all the washout comments you got were right on target. Full scale Cubs were manufactured with...

    I have enjoyed mine on an OS 70 FS for many years; I might re-engine for more power next year. But no regrets at all for powering it with the OS 70 all those years. It really just depends on what...

    Yes, the cheapest radios probably won't do it, but I did this about 20 years ago with my old Hitec Flash 5 (which had a two plane memory) back when computer radios were the new thing. Any computer...

    No, it doesn't give aileron function on the rudder (left) stick. It gives rudder on the rudder stick. You plug the rudder in where it is supposed to go, in the rudder port on the rx. That part of...

    Ha! Ya got me. Yes, I owned it, and I hope you enjoy it. I found it very easy to start and run. It vibrated like crazy on the first run, but smoothed out as I broke it in.

    I wouldn't mess with the compression screw on the first try. It's probably close. Same with the needle. On the test stand, just put three drops of fuel into the carb (open) and give it a sharp...

    I like your solution for the wing construction; good tips on the laser cutting too. Very clear photos.

    Without going back to my radio manual, here's how I think I did it: You plug the rudder servo into the rudder port on the rx. That gives you control on the left stick. Then you go to AIL-RUD...

    Think of it as roll and pitch on the right stick. A rudder plane, with no ailerons, has a lot of dihedral and it will turn much like an aileron plane using rudder. Don't try to fly with just rudder...

    Is that an HB 15? Looks like it could be. Perry carb, no fins on the top of the head, small bolt-on muffler. If so, some love them (see Ed Cregger on RCU) and others not so much. I never did get...
