RE: Webra .35 Speed

How's it going Ernie. I still visit RCU now and then, but I haven't been doing much flying. The .35 is not in a plane. One of these days I'll get fired up on flying again and find a plane for it. I...

RE: OS 55ax

Same here. I tried this a few years back. I even downloaded the software and still couldn't get it to work. I blamed it on my lack of computer savvy.

RE: Bill Evans Simitar

This has to be one of the most senior threads here at RCU. I was given mine by a friend of Bill Evans. Bill lives just north of here and I think he might have built my plane. I didn't have any idea...

RE: K&B .61 engine?

Dar, do you have a link to show that both Boca and RC-Bearings use the same vendor. As far as I know, those Communist Chinese bearings have no markings.
