    I have never tried oil based polyurethane on my airplanes because we when we had our floors done with it we had to do it in the summer with a lot of ventilation and we were warned it was not safe to...

    Great tests and information, GN, thank you. I've wondered about Modge Podge, which came out well in your tests too, but have not tried it

    Painting a single unbraced sheet is a severe test, which...

    Beautiful models! But I think oil base will not solve my problem of keeping fumes out of the house.

    Very interesting thread for me. thanks to everyone for the informative posts. I want to phase out dope, which is what I've used for most of my planes all my life. I don't like the fumes, and now I...

    Pulse the power occasionally until it either comes down or runs out of juice. If that doesn't work, check after windy periods to see if it fell. If you can get hold of some kind of tubing that can...

    Have you gone on any Saito threads to get help with your 82? So many people love those engines, plus it should be more powerful and lighter than a K&B 65. I would do everything possible to fix what...

    Given your wood working tools and experience I would get some wood and some plans and start building. That gives you infinitely more choices than kits (almost gone in that size) plus it's really fun...

    The Enya V and VI, OS Max 20 and 25, ASP 21 can all be bought cheaply, they are light weight, easy to start, good runners. The older engines should have a good amount of castor in the fuel. Don't...

    I went back and looked at my tests and the Enya 19 V (I don't have a VI) got 12,000 on a TF wood and 11,200 on a TF nylon. The OS surprisingly got only 10,600 on the wood, but 11,250 on the nylon. ...

    As an instructor I flew a beginner's Eagle with an OS 40 FP and thought it was just right. The Saito 45 will be about the same power and a little heavier, but the Eagle is built for that. Excellent...

    Not trying to be picky, but it's worth knowing that the screw you found is not an air bleed, it is a low speed needle. The low speed needle adjusts like the main needle; screwing it in leans it out,...

    Two things changed:

    1. The extra wing increases the total wing area, but the stab area and tail moment arm are the same. That means the stabilizing force has decreased compared with the...

    The OS 19 was really mediocre, but the 20 and then 25 that replaced it were excellent; I still have a couple bought on ebay, the kind with the strap on muffler. That's another possibility besides...

    I have found that the pitch of the prop really affects landing. A fine pitch gives lower speeds, better control and a shorter approach. I like a 14x4 on my OS 70 pulling a Four Star 60. If going...

    I always wondered about that 20TV; you never hear about them. I assume it's a newer version of the old 19s, but with muffler bolt holes. It's lighter, smaller and less powerful than the 25SS. And...

    Oh, I didn't notice the "low cost and RTF" part; I agree with Tom C. You can enjoy either of those models for years, not just for initial training. Cheap ARFs can be trouble.

    But since it's...

    I bet it's quite a sight to see. What hp? The one at Golden Age has an 80 hp LeRhone, which of course is under sized, but it flies beautifully with it. Turns are unbelievably tight.

    That's true, it's really a gasket, so I see your point. The SAE ones I found seemed too far off to me, but it doesn't cost much to try it and see if it will stretch enough.

    Thank you! I finally figured out where the parts list is on the site and you're right. So it's $2.09, next time I order from Tower.
