    What did you answer? That they discussed the possibility of protecting the material in the safety handbook? So what? It is free for all to use so obviously nothing has yet changed. Or perhaps...

    I don't recall the AMA selling copies of their rules, or dissallowing others to copy them, so his accusation is vague to say the least.

    That is a good plug, but I am not sure that is hot enough for low nitro with a high nitro head. Did you check the stamping on the side to be sure it is a #3?

    What plug are you using? With that head you may be serverly retarded, (the timing LOL). So a hotter plug may pick up some revs.

    True, but the difference is only .,05 cubic inches. So not really a factor. I think it more a matter of break in in this case. But the 50 is supposed to be timed for lower RPM, but should turn a...

    I don't think I have ever run the .50 on a 10x6. But it does more RPM than that on a larger prop. It's a bit low on compression with a noticeable ridge at the top of the cylinder. Maybe yours...

    My .50 does more RPM than that, (about 13,700 or so) on an 11x5 and unloads pretty well using 5% nitro. It seems more powerful than a TT .46 with 15% nitro. But the TT pulls more RPM on the ground....

    I think it started with Howard Hughes. I am not just refering to the tax's and landing fees paid by the airliners and manufactures, but that is a big part of it. GA is almost dead thanks to the FAA.

    No one is friends with the FAA, except the airlines and other commercial interests that pay their salary. The AMA can never compete with that and the courts are the only real solution.

    Naw. It will stay with the FAA. If they receive to much revenue they will just have a hot tub and wine party, oh sorry, I meant a convention.

    Most were on the bottom under the crankshaft port. The port would be open only when the crankcase was under pressure. This produced a lot more pressure than muffler pressure. Most were used for...

    Writing regulations IS an "enforcement action".

    Looks like a guy flying control line with a large finger pointing at him. I guess the AMA thinks we will have to fly only control line to satisfy the FAA.

    That statement starts with "Nothing in this section". That means ignore what was said before when it comes to the safety of the NAS.

    Then they would be promulgating the use of part 91 for uses it was not used for, never mind that it says it applies to all on board the aircraft. So they would still be promulgating a regulation.

    Great Planes

    All make kits made in the USA and have demonstration video's. The video's themselves could be considered competition.

    Section 336 also said that the FAA has the power to protect the NAS so regulations for that purpose could still apply to models. So it is important what they think is required to protect the NAS.

    The large manufactures do not do that and if they did would not get much testing done. If not employee's then you would see people flame the company here and on other forums when it crash's. That...

    The service provided is testing of aircraft, the compensation is the model they are flying. If you take the model then the compensation is the free use of the model while testing it.

    The FAA would not accept that they are testing for free. Aircraft companies have tried to say that private pilots transporting people on weekends were exempt. The FAA would have none of that. They...

    Here is the paragraph from FAA interpretation,that would make it illegal for a paid employee to test a model airplane without a commercial license. Testing would be incidental to operation of the...

    The person testing the model is paid by the manufacture. No different than a test pilot for a company that must have a commercial rating. They do not have to charge the customer for the test...

    Since the FAA is making asurd claims I and other will assume they will make asurd regulations based on those claims. They are now saying that model airplains are unsafe to full scale aircraft if...

    The FAA said that test flights were commercial flights. And if they bother to read them they have my opinion as I sent them. Did you? Still time left.

    Manufactures will not be able to test their product. So the customer will test them and they may fall apart and crash. Then people will not buy them.
