RE: Norvel 25, 40 long term reviews

It will probably help. Getting more air has got to increase the power but how much is very dependent on the port timing. I would sure give it a try though. It is a very nice motor, just a bit too...

A good hardware store . Of course they don't exist anymore. There used to be several in the LA area. Try the net. You should be able to get one that way for about 9 bucks. 5 cents for the roll pin...

RE: Thunder Tiger saved

They held the price of the TT40 at $99 because of the 424 rule on the price of the engine. I would imagine they would like to get out from under that rule or change the price with out loosing sales....

RE: MUBU II F5D Build

Always an issue. I used Hitec digital wing servos (5125s I think) in a couple of quickies. I don't think I made 40 flights before I had to replace the gears. But the metal gears in my mini...

RE: MUBU II F5D Build

those really look pretty good. 30inoz, titanium gears, .23oz, 59 bucks. I would put them in a Vtail quickie with a nelson without much hesitation. With 30inoz I would like to see 2 on the elevators....

RE: Norvel 25, 40 long term reviews

I have the 40AX. I flew quite a lot on a fun fly. It runs very well with good throttle response. The power is on the low end of the scale for sport 40s. The reason I believe is because it is...

RE: Telling difference between Nelson Q40 LS & Q40 SS

Run it on 15% nitro. What looks to you like a carburetor is not. It is a choke only. It does not have a low speed needle. The engine will not run below 12000 rpm and probably not below 15000. It...

RE: Telling difference between Nelson Q40 LS & Q40 SS

It's an SS. The throttle (choke) indicates it is a Q500 motor not a Q40. The casting intake is short and would indicate it may be a very old ABC.

I have had it happen a couple of times even here in California but I never tried waxing the sticker. I'll do that at the next damp race.
