    RE: Are the new Thunder Tiger 40s actually 46s?

    I'm not sure why they need so much time. They email they sent seemed rather generic and some of the corespondence I've had seemed geared more towards actual warranty repairs than the very specific...

    Hi John,
    I cant say about the use of premeasured amounts of fuel as it would have to be brought before the rules commitee, I can however tell you that your old K&B 40 is NOT allowed for use in...

    RE: Are the new Thunder Tiger 40s actually 46s?

    The larger case/head gap clearance is what gave my plane away. Once you see it you will actually be able to easily spot one even from quite a distance.
    I still have the original box in which my...

    And I would think Hobbico should be aware of this by now and was a little surprised to find the tech I was dealing with knew little of the problem. As I said above, I'm unsure if the tech was...

    RE: Are the new Thunder Tiger 40s actually 46s?

    Bozarth,
    Good question. The answer is both yes and no. My plane is faster than most of the others but I believe in fairness so is my ST.40 powered back-up plane. On the other hand, the TT.40/46...
