    RE: Reducing weight 4*60 tail

    I stick built the tail pieces once on 4-star .40. The result was a nose-heavy airplane that needed the battery placed way back in the fuselage to get a good CG. I would leave it alone.

    I usually use the Rx battery as ballast and put it in a convenient place that helps achieve the proper CG. If that happens to be right next to the RX, it isn't an issue at all.I would run 6 cells...

    RE: Interference Engines

    I have never had to find out. Even if there was a chance of valve to piston contact, the camshaft would have to be installed way out of time for it to happen or a cam gear would have to break while...

    RE: What's the name of the airplane ?

    At one time Henry Ford was very interested in aviation. From what I understand the Fliver was an attempt to bring flying to the average citizen just like Ford had done with the Model-T car. They...

    RE: Zip Ties in Gas tank

    I use the solder barbs too. They are easy to install and work great.
