    I have used shrink tubing and even tied them together with dental floss. But the clips are best if you will need to take the connections apart often.

    Ah yes, glow fuel on ice with a little vermouth and a lemon peel, shaken not stirred.

    Thanks everyone. Yes, I did check the plans to be sure that the main gear was in the forward position. Good thought though.

    I will try to bend the main gear further forward. Maybe I can clamp...

    I went to a swap meet in March. I picked up a new OS 15 LA and a used 25LA for a total of $40. I already have more than enough glow engines for my lifetime, but I keep buying more.

    I'll add that 72 MHz is actually a much better frequency to use than 2.4 GHz for communications between omni-directional antennas. This is because the path loss at 72 MHz is much lower than at 2.4...
