Yes it will clean it. But I don't think I would heat the antifreeze inside an apartment. I don't know if the fumes would be hazardous but it would smell bad.

Nice looking design. But the coat hanger wire is not stiff enough for the landing gear. It will bend too easily and not spring back to it's original shape. You will need music wire for that.

Rowdog, I would want bigger battery on ignition. I had a 50cc engine that would not start using a 700mah battery. It would be bad to have the engine die in the air because of the ignition battery.

They did that to me last year. I was blocked out of the buy and sell part of the site. I couldn't even look at the ads. After I paid $10 by PayPal I was no longer blocked. It might have taken a day...

I like my GGT 15. I am flying it on a Revolver 70 and I think it has the perfect amount of power for it. And there is much less clean up compared to most glow planes and no ignition system and...

I have a O.S. GGT 15 and it is a little more powerful than a O.S. 75 glow engine. You might want to look at the DLE 20cc gas engine. I think it would be closer to the power of a 1.20 four stroke.

I don't think the GT15 is big enough for the Giant Stik. The manual on the plane calls for a 1.20 to 1.60 2-stroke glow or a 25cc to 35cc gas engine. The GT15cc is about a .91 that has a little less...

If the needle is closed all the way no fuel should be passing through it. Because the engine had not been used in 10 years my guess would be that dried fuel/oil is preventing the needle from closing....

If the wing loading comes out to 16oz/sq ft I wouldn't worry about it being too heavy. 16oz is a good loading for a trainer. I can't answer your other questions.
