RE: Identify this plane!

Larry,

That was going to be my first guess too. But look at the top of the "fuse" there does seem to be a couple of pegs sticking out the side of it. Looks like they could be wing hold downs...

RE: replacement for a Norvel

Jaspur,

Understand that you can NOT use a turbo plug or Nelson plug(both are bottom sealing plugs) in place of a regular short glow plug. They are completely different in threading and how...

RE: I would like opinions on going reverse rotation

Robert,

Running a Medallion crank in a TeeDee makes for a nice handling engine. The mild intake timing of the Medallion crank with the venturi and bypass porting of the TeeDee works well...

RE: Want to restore a Cox RR1? A new provder is making the scene.

Robert,

I used to have a couple of good pictures of that engine that Leo sent to me after he built it. But sadly they were on my old computer that died. But if you go to Leo's website and at...

RE: Want to restore a Cox RR1? A new provder is making the scene.

Robert,

That is my friend Leo's website. When it comes to RR1 restorations he is the man. I have only restored 3 RR1's myself(just to risky to me) but I believe Leo has done 20 or 30 of them...

RE: The Christmas Cox!

Gene,

That myth has been going around for a long time. The plain aluminum Cox crankcases are not clear(type1) anodized. After having anodized 1,000's of Cox engine parts I have never come...

RE: Cox Norvel .049 glow heads

Guys,
The Merlin 1/2a Drop In plugs work very good in our Cox engines. So good I have become a dealer of them. And at less than $5 a plug you just can't beat it. I was asking about the new Merlin...

What a great looking little plane! Great job on the finish. I have seen most of Bob's planes fly in person..the ones that he used for the pictures on the kit boxes. He did such a great...

RE: Are we really this bad?

It's a throw away world these days. With the current cost of ARF's it is just silly to go out and build a model from a kit. By the time you add up the cost of the kit, glue, covering, tools etc you...

RE: 1/2A Size Boat Club

Sure a diesel converted Cox engine would be great in a boat. With the added torque of the diesel you could turn a prop with higher pitch. It's just the DD head has issues the RJL head does not .
