    ARUP, I can't open the attachment...and I want to see that Vampyr.

    Great thread, wonderful photos, and really great to see your Snipe once again, Abu.

    Wow, what a story! Looks like a great club with a really nice website. What's Manfred doing flying an SE-5A? Just kidding.

    In 1958 I was nine years old and could not take my eyes off my friend's older brother's silk covered glider. This was in England, and the glider had a box frame fuselage with a compartment for lead...

    Also, it may be coming in for a landing!

    The stab is huge, the tail arm is long, and the wing chord is very narrow. All those things suggest you'll be fine with a balance point very far aft of...

    As long as the wing, stab, and fuselage proportions are correct the neutral point will be proportionally the same regardless of scale, so a chuck glider should provide a safe CG for the larger model....

    I usually don't seal it. There is a bit of spray from the carb, but I haven't found any detectable amount getting into small holes in the firewall around the fuel tubing. The exhaust goop is all...

    I agree with Dave H. Once you've done a successful maiden (congrats!), flight testing is the way to decide the balance point. The down trim is not an indication something is amiss.

    My 4 Star 60 is not a 3D plane, but I like the 14x4 and do not get "floating" on landing that many complain about with that model.

    The 13x6 and 14x4 put very similar loads on the engine in the...

    I don't have exactly that, but I do have a Sig 4 Star 60 with an OS 70. I like it with an APC 14x4. It's not fast with that prop, but fast enough for me, and the vertical is very good; landings are...

    A K&B 61 with its stock muffler will wake the dead. That's one reason I'd like to be able to run a larger prop on it. A Bisson muffler might help too.

    The 65 Sportster muffler will fit; I...

    I don't understand why the old K&b 61 could not be ported for 13x5 props too, that's a good prop for the HP 61 PDP which is based on it. Maybe it's just that Mr. Lee only does porting for high rpm...

    Thank you. I am more interested in larger props, like a 13x5, so maybe the Lee mods are not for me. Sounds like he's going for high rpm with a pipe.
