It all works. It depends how much you fly. I found that Benol does not gum things up as much as virgin medicinal castor. I've had to clean the inside of the back plate and crankcase as there was some...

Thanks @GallopingGhostler I was laser focused on getting lowest weigh on the plane / max thrust to accomplish the torque roll. To accomplish the max vertical power I I needed both high(ish) RPM's and...

The .09's got some Gusto :-)

Agreed. The .09 is light and it definitely punches above its weight. Here's a video of a IV modified with an SNV carb and single ball race (From the car version) Torque Rolling..

I still have mine, after over 300 flights and a few boo-boo's including an aileron servo failure it's ready for a re-cover. The engine is strong. I found the Enya .09 car version case with a single...

After seeing your video I went out and found the Jetstream on a UK website (JustEngines) It's on its way. We'll see how it does. Thanks for the tip :D

RE: Best sounding R/C Plane ever..

Yeah, I had seen that video before and I have seen an OS 5 Cylinder run live at the club a long time ago.

OK, so it's totally off topic and really belongs in a giant scale forum but.. If that does not send chills down your spine, you're probably in the wrong hobby.

RE: Cox 049 Tee Dee & Medallion Starter Springs now available

RE: Dang, broke my Extra

Mine does climb straight-up (Very slowly) / hovers / and Torque Rolls with the Enya .09

RE: Where does one obtain Cox fuel in Canada?

RE: Where does one obtain Cox fuel in Canada?

Sorry I'm a little late to the party, I was traveling on business..

RE: Large PAW diesels?

I had mine on a smaller plane that needed some speed to fly and the 12 X 10 Zinger was the best prop for it. I was getting 8200 rpms which would translate to 77 mph theoretical speed.

RE: Cox 010 RC plane?

I see, so there was no beam going along the spar from 2nd or so rib to the other side connecting the wing roots together. Instead, it was a "Butt join" to the center section shown on the prior...

RE: Cox 010 RC plane?

Too bad about "structural issue" it was flying beautifully.

What did you use as covering? Do you have some pics of the breakage ? The fuselage looked pretty well triangulated from the earlier...

RE: Cox 049 RPM ???

WIth a Cox 049, low nitro will give you low power at any temperature. In fact, low temps (Up to a point) should give you more power as the air is denser and engine cooling is improved (You can get...
