    RE: New 35% Edge

    RE: RCGF Engines

    Not all that difficult. Read it a time or two more. It's harder with a full size wing than with plans but it works the same.

    RE: RCGF Engines

    Start with about 30% of MAC and adjust to suit the way you fly. Most manufacturers set the c/g much too far forward.

    RE: which oil for dl50?

    The Lawnboy gernerates fast ring and cylinder wear along with heavy sludge buildup so it would not be used at all on my engines. The Redline can be used up to 100-1 per the manufacturer if you had...

    I can think of some Bill Hemple planes that could handle them, plus the monsters that the Europeans do on their own. 400cc engines are for those that think "outside the box". Meaning the planes...

    RE: RCGF Engines

    A 17cc engine would barely replace a .60 (10cc) glow engine once the weight was factored in. Not worth the effort.

    RE: Post crash "what if?.."

    Take the Smartfly swicth apart and inspect the wiring. There have been a few with faulty solder joints. It a wire failed in the switch it cut the power to everything.

    Best to replace the entire top end to better match everything up. You can change just the cylinder but the ring seal will never be as good as it should be. So a loss of power is likely.
