    The ignition has a little to do with that, but that's not the main thing. Do to the chemistry involved, gas has to be mixed a lot leaner than alcohol for max power. I don't recall the exact numbers,...

    I have serious doubts that there is any genuinely new technology in this engine. The only really new thing to hit model engines since the 70's is the CDI ignition, and this one doesn't even have...

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned the venerable old Ugly Stick yet. Pick any Stick from any maker, the biggest size you can afford and/or transport. Put the biggest engine recommended by the...

    Yeah, that doesn't sound so out of the ordinary at all. These old farmers and ranchers are a crotchety lot to begin with, so you probably caught some flak that had been building up for a few weeks...

    I like OS engines in general. I'm not one to bash them for being OS, and I'm not one to normally say that all OS stuff is overpriced. The .46 AX is toward the top of the market price wise for .40...

    My only point with comparing them to the cost of the bigger engines was that in general, engines cost more as they get bigger. So given that these are so much smaller, they should be cheaper. Yet...

    On the club topic, what's exactly wrong with the property owner? Is it that he cursed at you the second you walked up and asked about the club, or it is that he didn't do everything in his power to...

    Agreed on the prop suggestions, and I'll add that you should consider bigger wheels. 2.75 -3 inch wheels will handle the grass better.

    The .46 FX is ported to do well at higher RPM. A 10x7 is too much prop to let it unwind like it wants to. A 10x6 or 11x5 will give you more power. I fly a Kaos with a TT .46 Pro, which is very...

    What is it that you feel you're getting from the DX6i that other makers don't give you? The AS3X is a waste on a 3 channel glider. It's helpful on the micro planes to smooth out the flying a bit, but...

    No.
    Actually, the no load voltage is not a reliable indicator for any kind of battery.

    With it not having an ignition, it should sell for less, not more. Agreed, OS makes a good engine, but this is only about 10% cheaper than a DA 35 and about 25% more than a DLE 30. What are we...

    Rustoleum is gasoline proof, and sometimes it's glow proof and sometimes not (according to the threads I've read from people who tried it). It's another question though whether it's compatible with...

    Most engines, pumped or not, will need some servicing after sitting for a year. If the fuel you use has any natural castor in it, it will harden over time. When engines are run regularly, castor...

    Do check the MSDS and the manufacturer's recommendation on ventilation and safety equipment. Many of these urethanes are very harmful to your lungs and/or central nervous system.

    If none of the manufacturers have done it before it's probably been tried and rejected as an idea that didn't work.

    I just reread your original post and see you were talking about making a tradeoff between diameter and pitch. When I first read it, I thought you asked about the difference between a 16x6 and a 15x6....

    You're begging for trouble by not using a BEC for the ignition if you truly feel you must run the whole plane on one battery. I think a better route is redundant receiver batteries that go to both...

    Every internal combustion engine ever made has a particular RPM range where it makes the most power. The torque peak with be at an RPM a bit lower than the horsepower peak in every case I've ever...

    I meant the hull is angled from the sides into the sponsons by a bumpy 45. The three steps on the bottom of the sponsons are rounded 90 degree angles. I guess I need to go ahead and blueprint these,...

    I'm glad you found it. I'd still worry about vibration causing that issue though. Your receiver definitely shouldn't cause twitching like that, even with heavy vibration. I'd suspect the servo pots...

    Yes, everything I see says that a straight up and down pickup should be fine too, but it wasn't on this boat. Maybe the angle of the opening in the tube was wrong, or maybe it was too high in the...

    I believe you. From searching around, water flow just doesn't seem to be a big issue in most of these electric boats. But it certainly was in both versions of this one. It's using 1/8 brass tubing...
