    I have reviewed many (sorry not all) of the forgoing thread pages and seen numerous issues with controlling idle and a stepped ignition timing. For all of you recently purchasing this engine, have...

    You assume too much Mike. There are many ways to contribute to club and field operations without being an officer, and with being a complainer. If you are satisfied that your risk is mitigated,...

    Ira, you bring up good points. My concern about the insurance backing of the AMA is if the claim includes a lack of following club and AMA safety standards, will the AMA stay in the fight. My...

    I did not say, "I know it doesn't." That would have implied knowledge of the law. "I don't believe ..." expresses my layman's opinion. If EVERYONE is getting sued (by name), I don't see the...

    I question whether it protects the club officers from liability, and to be clear, I am no lawyer. If only the club is sued, yes, I expect they are protected. If the suit names the club AND officers...

    I used rattle can Rustoleum on Solartex with great result. Giant gasser with no compatibility issues. Big plusses: very good color density (good single coat cover); and very hard to make it run. ...

    Great thread ... since I have two birds returned from long-term storage that are in GROSS need of cleanup. I will try the Mr. Clean, and a few other thoughts I have and let you know of my results.

    dasintex,

    One point that has not yet been mentioned, the closer to the CG (or thereabouts) the gyro is, the less vibration it will likely experience. Or, is this point going to start yet another...

    Consider this alternative: tape a black plastic bag somewhere in the fuselage. It won't same your plane in a crash (as said above, a parachute usually won't either), but it will make the walk back...

    Most of my causes have been covered, including reversed ailerons. Another cause leading to pilot error is distraction. It is too cold, you got kids hanging around, worse yet - you step in a fire...

    I like it! But, I think the cost is going to be just a bit north of my hobby budget.

    Hoss,

    Sorry been off-line a couple of days. Man, a lot of conversation since your message. As a matter of fact, I am returning a week from Sunday, assuming the mountain of paperwork is done in...

    Robin,

    I have not flown near as long as Horrace, but my experience is the same. If I may offer anecdotally, I witnessed a large scale aerobat with a gas twin crash land hard enough into a paved...

    Guys,

    No, I am not on here in the mid-night hours. The RCU clock is on 1:00 am when I am at lunch and enjoying these pages.

    Sorry, I was away for a few minutes. I had to go pop some corn. My reasoning may be case for some controversy.

    No argument from me! Think about sitting in and flying the 1:1 version for the first time. That would be scary.

    I saw the real thing at the EAA Museum in Oshkosh and it is small!

    I have been here longer yet and it has happened to me. I can't even blame my Rx/Tx. It was all me. First flight of a new air frame. Sometime you just get distracted. We all do stupid things...

    Jim,

    I like your engine choice too, and the weight should not be an issue considering how tail-heavy the airframe tends to be. I suspect you are going to run into prop diameter limit pretty...
