    RE: G38 won't pull/draw fuel

    I also have a G-38, runs okay but I'm at 6600 feet here in Colorado Springs, and I'm wondering if there is another Walbro carburetor that would provide better performance than the stock (old) WTA-6A...
  2. RE: Byron Mustang w/Original Byron 50--Will it Fly?

    Alan,
    I am finishing (single aileron servo and torque rods already in) the single piece wing P-51. Are you aware of anyone using individual servos in the single piece wing for the ailerons? ...
  3. RE: Byron Mustang w/Original Byron 50--Will it Fly?

    John,
    Thanks for the pictures and the information. One question; where did you get the kill markings on the canopy? I used some pics of the full scale P-51 Detroit Miss in Norway (Sweden?) for...
  4. RE: Byron Mustang w/Original Byron 50--Will it Fly?

    51-D guy,
    Looks great! And, I'm envious of your grass field. It looks like you have three red and white kill markings under the canopy on the left side; if so, can you tell me where you got...

  7. RE: Byron Mustang w/Original Byron 50--Will it Fly?

    Alan,
    I intend to finish my Byron Mustang this winter. It too is the older single wing design. I have built it as the plans dictated, with the single servo aileron system. You said it is...

    RE: High altitude Raptor 50

    I'm not an expert, but I fly my Raptor 50 on the Air Force Academy (6600 feet MSL) and at our flying field that is slightly lower with no problems. Have the standard OS-50 (not Hyper) and everything...
  10. RE: Reccomendation for Rap 50 throttle governor?

    Thanks to all for the inputs. I now realize I should have asked another question: I'm currently using a Futaba S148 servo on the throttle--I assume I will need something faster with a governor? ...
  11. Reccomendation for Rap 50 throttle governor?

    I am getting ready to program the Idle 1 curves in my transmitter (Futaba 8U Super) for my Raptor 50 and am thinking of putting a throttle governor on at that time. Any recommendations as to brand? ...

    RE: Fuel Contamination question

    Like gamerboy, I too pump what is left in the header tank back into the jug. It's hard for me to believe that fueling from the jug, flying a couple minutes later for 10-15 minutes, then pumping the...

    RE: raptor paddles

    BH,

    I started flying my Raptor 50 last winter and found the best technique for me was to hover tail in with the nose about 30 degrees right, get comfortable, move the nose 30 degrees more to the right,...

    RE: R60 Stock wooden blades question

    I am not an 'old hand' on the helis, but on my 50 I melted a small (1/2 inch by 1 inch) hole in the shrink covering on the bottom of one blade. I just rubbed in some thin CA to the bare wood at the...

    RE: JR XP6102 throttle ratchet

    I don't know exactly how the JR throttle ratchet is designed, but on my Futaba, I took the back off and slipped a short (~1/2 inch) piece of fuel tubing over the tension bar so the ratchet wheel rubs...

    RE: What Raptor to buy?

    I noticed you have the 60 V2 and 90 SE; I have a standard Raptor 50. Can you address the performance difference between the 50 (not Hyper) and the 60? I'm trying to decide whether a 60 would be...

    RE: Poorly Finished wood blades

    I agree with everything you said. My earlier post was just to ensure that epoxy was used between the grip and blade. Happy flying!

    RE: What Raptor to buy?

    I went from a Blade CX to the standard Raptor 50 (not Hyper) and have been very happy with the ease to fly in learning and performance (at 6500 feet here in Colorado). The 50 is obviously cheaper to...
