    I will take the pump apart and see what I can find. I haven't tried flushing it yet - maybe that will help. Unfortunately, it would not suck up a single drop of fuel. The previous time it failed, it...

    Use a Fox long plug with idle bar. The problem you are describing sounds alot like the problem I had with a new OS 95AX. The Fox plug with idle bar solved the problem.

  16. RE: Is 1/16

    Thanks for the tip about 3/32 basswood ply, Sensei. I will have to use that for the next build.
  17. RE: Is 1/16

    Now, is...

    RE: GP Giant Big Stik Aileron Measurements

    I've thought about making the ailerons bigger on the green stik. Unfortunately, I had to re-hinge the ailerons because the CA hinges failed (as I had mentioned). When I repaired the hinges, I cut new...

    RE: GP Giant Big Stik Aileron Measurements

    Thanks for all of your help. That is a nice looking stik.

    Below are pictures of my original size (60) stick I built a couple years ago. The ailerons are too small and the plane is heavy (since...
