    Dave, I've seen quite a few monowheel models with ply tip skids (never bothered myself), but never a tall wire arrangement like that. I'd be a bit worried that enough force could be exerted on it...

    Nice one Dave, looks good!

    If you end up doing basic aerobatics with it, you might want to move the tank up closer to the centreline of the engine.

    The one we ran had a venturi - dunno how much difference a carb would make. Crankcase pressure worked fine. You should be able to put a muffler on it if you want - they're just held on by a wire...

    The accepted wisdom on the 049 AME is that it needs to run on pressure (at least as a glow). That was definitely the case with the only one I've experienced. How that translates to diesel, I'm not...

    I dunno, I've found that a good 1cc diesel (MP Jet, PAW, or converted Norvel) does really with an APC 7x3, running in the 16000-17500 range. Agreed about the Teflon discs, though - what might work...

    Hi Derek, that was a 12x6. RPM was in the 8000-9000 range, although I didn't get a really decent reading. Sorry I can't be more definitive, but it gives you an idea, anyway.

    Yes, they fire simultaneously, so it feels much like a normal big diesel to flick over, and sounds much like one. Very much smoother, though. Not really sure why it'd be better as an inline twin.

    Paw twin

    Here's the new PAW .38 twin, one of only 15. Nicely made, and a very smooth runner. Quite an achievement by the blokes at PAW.

    I don't really agree that the lines need to be shorter - after all, this is a Norvel 061 with about 3 times the power of a traditional 1/2a trainer. Even in a decent breeze, 42' lines should be fine....

    I used to run mine with a 12x6 or 11x7 - it was a bugger for vibration, but not prone to overheating/going hard.

    Didn't PAW once try one with an18x6, just to see how long it would take to fail?...

    Actually, on the 12x5 it seemed to go a bit hard (and/or hot) towards the end, and on all the props the revs were a little unsteady. I wonder if it could do with a bit more running-in, even though...

    This engine should be quite happy with an 11x6, 11x7 or 12x6. If you have any of these, I'd be interested to hear how it goes on them with your newer fuel.

    My friend's would turn an APC 7x3 (a really good prop for it) in the mid-16000s, from memory. By comparison, my PAW 06 does about 16200, and my MP Jet 061BB manages mid-17000s, all on the same prop. ...

    No worries mate. My experience, for what little it's worth, is that the big ones don't flood as easily anyway. A drop too much prime in a big PAW is hardly noticed, whereas in a Schlosser it makes...
