    RE: Copperhead Venom 45

    I have a nearly brand new V45 from back in the day when Copperhead was supporting them. I've run about a gallon of fuel through this thing but it was not quite enough to pull my 16 lb 28% Edge 540T...

    RE: MLD-28 gasoline engine

    I thought that was pretty damn nice. The video was good and the flying was good. This says a lot for the engine and the plane. Nice job!

    RE: MLD-28 gasoline engine

    I'm at 5300' and am running an OS 120AX getting 9000 RPMs with an APC 17x6. Is this engine comparable in performance? I'm curious to hear what kinds of numbers you guys get with this prop so I can...

    RE: MLD-28 gasoline engine

    I strap this one to my square metal gas can and it works great. The one mentioned above costs more but it is easier to crank.

    RE: XYZ ENGINES

    I just took a look at the new XYZ 50-HP at this site and although the engine looks pretty sweet in general, the mounting "ears" seem thin, as in the first release of the DL-50. With the DL, there...

    AJT,

    Any word on your Dietrick/MT57 combo? I'm interested in the same combo and would really like to hear how yours is doing.

    RE: XYZ ENGINES

    Thanks for the info. BTW, I like my V45, it is a very nice running engine, I've got a lot of time on it with no problems. I just need a little more power for the plane it's on. I will keep my V45...

    I ran my engine today for the first time since May 2007. After I primed it (about 10 flips with the choke closed) and got it to pop, I opened the choke and it fired up on the 5th flip. I have to...

    Albuquerque fliers - where to fly?

    Are there places to fly glow other than Maloof Airpark? I've heard of people that fly at Balloon Fiesta Park but I've never seen anyone fly there. Is there anywhere to fly in the NE part of town?

    RE: Peak Models 84" edge

    I would not be afraid of a 5" CG. Is that with or without your cowl? If it is without your cowl, you'll be fine. Your elevators will be a little more sensitive at 5". Even at...

    Many people are flying the US Lite with the OS160. That is a 26cc engine, but it is glow. It would be much more comparable to a 40cc gas, as opposed to a 26cc gas as far as power goes. My 160 will...
