    By the way, antifreeze is considered moderately toxic. The problem is that it tastes sweet, so animals and children may drink enough to kill them. By comparison, methanol - the main ingredient in...

    I'm replacing the spray bar in the carb of my Saito 72. Can anyone tell me if the orientation of the little slot is important? Should it be pointed in a particular direction? Or can I just...

    I suspect that OS has already stopped producing the 15LA and Tower is just selling off stock. I don't have any inside information, just my guess. I suspect OS builds many thousands of engines in a...

    Aspeed, how do you make the acorn nut? I guess that you start out with aluminum hex stock and turn a ball on the end, but how do you turn the shape? Do have a ball turning attachment on your lathe?

    Electric starter for OS 15LA

    I find my 15LA difficult to hand start. My electric starter cone is way too large for the engine's little prop nut. I tried a plastic spinner but the starter chews it up in just a few starts.

    Ok... Now that I look closer I see that the drive shaft is too short for a propeller. Forget it. Even if a proper drive shaft were available it would make the conversion too expensive.

    You might do better on the classified section of RC Universe or on ebay. Buyers at swap meets usually expect bargains.
