RE: Pitts muffler for Saito 220

Try Bob Davis at Davis Diesel, he'll have one/make one. His mufflers are very nice, they actually muffle... as opposed to only diverting burnt oil like BCM's!

Hey you know that that rivet detail work on the Aero A-102 Gold edition is beyond belief.

RE: Everything Radial Engines

I'd say a great deal of this is just rumors. Sure big engines, any engines for that matter will seriously hurt you, but the 215 Moki radials I've seen have been absolute PU$$Y CATS to operate.

Hey don't get me wrong, I'm interested in your choice!
