Did you change out the fuel lines when you got the plane? Fuel lines will get hard over time when sitting that long and you may have a leak under pressure. It will cause spraying and lack of power.

RE: My experience with the Goldberg Falcon 56

Sure - if you are now using an 11x6 for your .46, you could go to a 10x6 3-blade. But that will only really give you about 1/2" more clearance. Bigger wheels might help too... The 3-blade a bit...

RE: My experience with the Goldberg Falcon 56

Man I loved the Falcon 56. I bought the kit when I was 15 after several rounds of caddying at the golf course - that was in 1975. As I built the kit, I learned a LOT. All summer long I saved my...

RE: Best engine for Byron staggerwing

I built a Byron Staggerwing in 1990 - and still have it in flyable storage. I built it as the orignal full-kit-concept from Byron, with the (then very popular, and probably only available large...

RE: Transmitter programming for onboard glow

It's not supposed to glow when the radio is off. But, would like to have a way to switch it off while flying after takeoff, and switch it on for final approach when the glow system is critical.

I have a NIB .91 Surpass (1997 vintage). This is my first 4C engine - what is the pressure tap on the bottom of the engine for? Will it leak oily residue, and can I put a piece of fuel tubing on it...

RE: E2 Hawkeye Question

I watched the video. It certainly appears at first glance like it was a CG problem, but, if it were really that tail heavy, it most likely would have snap rolled into the ground right after liftoff,...

RE: The Original Falcon 56 Is Back Again!

Oh the memories! I built a Falcon 56 as my very first R/C back in 1975 at the age of 15. I remember saving up for that kit from the local hobby shop, and when I finally got it, I began in earnest...

RE: E2 Hawkeye Question

Just for technical accuracy, the nose cap is not a radome. There is no radar in the nose of the E2. It is painted black to basically to absorb heat and minimize icing on it.
