    If it's syrofoam, 31x18 is fine. It won't be very fast even if it is made from foam. My kamikaze is 32x18 and weighs 7lbs and I run a 1.20 4-stroke glow on it. Also a .90 SuperTigre and a .60...

    If the engineer/designer that designed the carburetor actually wrote the manual, it'd be a different story. Sadly most manuals are short a few (a LOT) of details.

    Are you using a washer against the prop for the nut to snug up to? Is the prop nut coming loose on its own or is it loosening from the engine stopping abruptly? The prop nut should not come loose,...

    I think the manual is printed wrong. Try opening the idle needle 3 turns and high speed 5 turns and try starting the engine. If the manual states 6 turns on the idle and the needle is falling out...

    I've never seen a users manual that stated to set the low speed more than 3 turns out and high speed needles rarely more than 5-6. To the OP: it's clearly obvious you have your needles mixed up. ...

    It does, but I almost need sails for rudders. I put 4"x4" plywood rudders on with the bigger engine but it needs more authority. It will turn, but not real controllably. No video of the first run...

    I would bet it ought to run pretty good on smaller props, eh? Those Picco car engines were usually timed pretty hot so I'd be curious to know how well this engine runs.

    Enya 4-strokes do not care for a lot of nitro. Mine run fine on 5-10% but get kinda knocky and finicky on 15% using Enya 3 plugs. But if you're runs okay otherwise, use it. The airbleed screw is...

    This boat ended up not doing much. Lack of thrust is the problem. The blue foam and plywood is a bit heavier than I expected AND my scale lied to me. Originally it said 4# RTR, but it was actually...

    One full turn of the needle is 360*. Turning it 180* is only halfway there.

    Dub Jett instructs to set his engines 800-1000rpm rich of peak for launch. That goes for the sport models anyway - piped or not. His engines will happily chug along at 16,000rpm all day when...

    I might pull the engine mount off my outrigger hydrofoil (TT 46 and Jettstream muffler) and bolt the whole thing to this foamy POS. I could have that setup fairly quickly as the engine, mount, and...

    Man... If I had something I was willing to part with, I might take you up on that. Honestly, I kinda want to keep bushing engines on it if I keep twin engines on it. I don't know why.

    Well, I wouldn't happen to have two of those. The only other pairs I have are K&B .65s and those are WAY too much engine. It's gonna need at least a single .40 just to make it move. I have a...

    The Dawn Power Dissolver is good for the outside but not so much for the inside. Engines seized up from castor residue needs heat to free it up, then soak in some glow fuel for a bit. This should...

    Here is what I tested out today. Turned out to be a flop. Two Enya .15-IVs is not enough power. So I need to figure something else out. Don't have another small pair of identical engines, and I...

    Adding enough oil to 30% nitro 12% oil fuel to bring it up to 20% oil will drop your nitro closer to 20% but will require a second jug. If you run European rngines designed for low nitro, you'll need...

    While I do agree the engine should be tuned to run properly by ear/feel, there is a limit I feel. I run my engines hard, but I try to keep the head temp below 310F. I find getting the engine warmed...
