    Huskavarna Conversions

    Just a little tidbit.

    A good number of the Husky engines are rated for 1,000 hours of use prior to rebuild. You probably would not have to rebuild one in this lifetime if you treated it well...

    Prop confusion for Saito 1.50

    I was referring to R/C aircraft racing. Scale type. Big difference.

    Bottom line, go with what you can afford, and what the tach tells you. Performance in the air tells it all.

    Prop confusion for Saito 1.50

    Meet everything halfway. Start with 15% nitro and a 16-6 prop. I'm betting for all aroung flying you end up with a 16-5 prop and 10 to 15% fuel.

    Higher nitro fuel also costs a lot more. You...

    Prop confusion for Saito 1.50

    The higher the nitro content, the more power available. One thing the fuel and engine sellers don't tell you is that it also significantly shortens the lifespan of the engine. Really a good deal...

    Prop confusion for Saito 1.50

    Try the 16/4 before you buy the 18" props. It all depends aon what you are trying to do. If you want to 3D with a light plane, the 16-4 will spin lots of rpm and not develop a lot of speed. This...

    Whats the Difference? 6.0v vs. 4.8v

    I doubt if you have damaged the 6v pack in any way. I can't see how a 70 mah charger could even try to cause damage. Unless... If there is a possibility that you may have inserted the receiver...

    Brison 5.8 Prop?

    Thanks Captn. My local hobby dealer suspects that Tower shipped me an "O" ring kit for the wrong BGX engine. 1.08 instead of 2.18. I recall that the parts/engines description on the seal kit did...

    Prop confusion for Saito 1.50

    Personally, I rather liked using a 16/5 on my S 1.50. Steady speed on the down lines, great hover, and good to excellent take off pull. This is on a 10 lb. Ultimate.

    OS 120 Surpass II

    Just for the sake of mentioning it, you're not presurizing the tank with muffler pressure, are you?

    BTW, I had one of the old Surpass II 120's. One of the worst engines I ever had. I hope yours'...

    Motor size reccomendation?

    The Nosen 51 is not a small and light airplane. I would consider the largest Moki you can get your hands on. I think that would be the 2.10.

    The OS 61SF is an older version of the OS 61FX. The last of the 61SFs' ended about 1997. The price for one then was about $135.00. They were not cheap, but they were better than anything currently...

    Tower 75?

    From personal experience. The Tower 75 is on a par with the MDS 78. Neither one of the two equals a fair running OS 61SF.

    How Good Is A Mds 68 Two Stroke

    MDS 68 is better than the MDS 78. More torque. Great running engines in either size, but limit you nitro to 15% or less. My 78 spit the wrist pin keeper while going for more rpm with high nitro.
