RE: HERE INFOS ABOUT OS 75 AX

Dave, I don't own a 75AX. What would I put it in? I'm about to be buried by .40 sized profiles here...all of which have their own engines.

I suppose if "Max RPM" with a smallish prop were...

RE: OS 120 ax "F" plug?

I'm with Jim.

The 120AX is a real fine running engine as is....doesn't seem to need any improving.

RE: Futaba 7C vs Spektrum DX7

RE: Futaba 7C vs Spektrum DX7

Well I guess when we start wiring AC buffer motors to our ailerons we can all come back to this. <GGGG>

It ain't a Spektrum thing....

we used "Stutter Stoppers" 20yrs ago on our 1/10th electric cars to keep the radio from going nuts when you slammed the throttle to it.

RE: OS Engines

OS does what a lot of companies do when they wish to remain viable in a price driven market. Hobbyists by nature are CHEAP *****ES and won't drop the coin for quality. If OS took everyone's...

RE: What plug are you using in your 4 stroke ??

Ed have you ever noticed the size of the wrench people use to install plugs?

I'm amazed they don't bust the firewall.

And that's the whole thing.....

Given that an OS "F" (or similar) will last an inordinate amount of time in a mechanically sound engine....who cares if it cost 7 or 8 bucks?

You don't...

RE: New Saito 62 initial run w/o oiling?

Don't punish yourself....you did fine. By following the INSTRUCTIONS, and keeping it fat and slow for the first few runs, you gave the moving parts plenty of oil.

It's a good plan however...

RE: Muffler for McCoy .35

I'll keep an eye out Doug....if I see something, I'll shoot you a PM.

Most likely...there's a muffler from another engine brand that'll "cobble together" with the McCoy. It'll add to the...

RE: What plug are you using in your 4 stroke ??

Fox, OS "F", or the Saito plug. 4Cs don't go through plugs very often.

If those don't work....you've got some other problem.

RE: Muffler for McCoy .35

The Davis mufflers are too expensive, and probably weigh more than the motor as well.

The McCoy .35RC (I'm assuming this is a Testors-McCoy Series 21 .35?) isn't really a bad motor at all if...
