I'll show some old pics here that you may have seen already. It take me a half hour to load new pics and then I can't always find them again on the computer. There are three blanks. I made a .100"...

Funny, Mr. Cox coaxed me to copy the T Tiger bowl shape when I asked at the time, so it is just the same as the T Tiger. I made about a dozen blanks with that ball end mill with some varying ODs. I...

There is a necro bump to a long thread. Haven't heard from Jeffie or Combatpigg for a long time. I made a few turbo heads for the TT .07. They helped a fair bit. One of the three motors I got...

Magnum and ASP are the same engine with different lettering for the Magnum I presume for exclusivity to the US and warranty work. It is too bad Mike started a business and right away they slow...

Magnum parts are getting hard to find now too. ASP/Magnum/Sanye the factory has reportedly moved and some size motors are not available at least for a while. They are kind of my new motor choice now....

I think in most cases where the head slides down into the sleeve, that any brand shim will work. You can research the bore with manufacturers specs to find one that matches. There are not many...

I don't want to be quoted as spreading rumours but wonder if they are being made by Sanye. They have supposedly moved and have moving pains. I wonder if HH can't get them for that reason, or...

Yes it is good to get in the shop and play a bit. It is a bit cool and windy to fly now, but the shop is a good temperature to work. We can't get on the field because of the moisture/standing water...

Yes that is as measured. I used a #5 centre drill which was broken before, and handy. It is 7/16" diameter, so 7/32" rad or so which is what I copied from the TTiger .07. As mentioned, I have been...

Just thought I would mention that I made up a turbo head for my newly acquired G Mark.061. I don't think I put it here yet. 15% fuel and a 4 1/4-4 APC was 18,300 stock head. Turbo head 24,000. ...

My LA and FP .15s are on hand launch planes and the motors work flawlessly. I guess I don't tilt them up like a taildragger. I have to cut the motors at the last minute with the trim so the props...

I am not sure any glue can be trusted after 30 years. I had one plane with Ambroid that went soft and rubbery and had to be thrown out. I guess the temperature and humidity conditions would affect...

G Mark .06

Tried out this one that I picked up. Cool spring day. Used 15% Ritches brew, not my usual 10%. A 4 1/4" - 4" APC prop give me 18,300 rpm. A MA 6-4" prop gave me 14,400. Nothing special. Huge...

I am not quite so negative, You will need the normal amount of oil, which is the biggest cost of fuel anyway. You can try E 85 gas if available in your area too. Maybe try running your motor at...

You could mix just a bit of methanol just so the change is not so drastic. Use the corresponding amount of oil. Maybe 1/3 glow fuel to 2/3 gas mixed fuel. There was a gas/glow thread on one of the...
