    What I have read is the 50 HP radial performed almost as well as the 65 but the 65 was smoother.

    I have read nothing about the cost of the engines. Maybe price was an attraction for the radial.

    RE: Versapulse Transmitter Build Log

    How would it work to tune the antenna by simply shorting out turns? That way you don't have to remove them and you can unshort them when you go past the optimum point.

    RE: Vintage Center Loaded Antennas

    The ones I know of off hand are Controlaire, Orbit, Minx and Airtrol.

    EDIT:

    Ignore what I said, I didn't see the word RECEIVER. I assumed he mean't transmitter.

    RE: RCM Issue Publication Dates

    Mike, the last time I saw the first issue at Toledo, the asking price was $75.
    I have all of the RCM 1960's issues here someplace, but I have hid them from myself.

    Controlaire/World Engines had a nice center loaded antenna for 27 MHz. They will be more plentiful than any other manufacturer.

    RE: Early RC?

    Start a Vintage meet in CA. There is one up in Oregon IIRC. CA is a long state with a lot of people. You could have at least three fly ins in its length.

    RE: Unidentified Yellow Bipe!

    It looks like a Lazy Ace. However, 62" is the smallest Lazy ACE. This could be one that has been reduced. See this site:
