I wouldn't hesitate to use it. Normal CP is 17% synthetic oil. CP MV-4 is 18% multi-viscosity oil.

Agree with Hydro Junkie. I cut my parts with a scroll saw close to the line and finish them off with a 6" Dremel belt/disk sander. Quick and precise.

The most best match will be by taking a piece of the plane to an automotive paint store. They can match the colors exactly in a 2-part paint that will look great, wear like iron, and be fuel proof. ...

You can do the same thing with just a servo alone. Simply remove the toggle and insert a servo in its place. One end of the wire to the toggle gets soldered to an inverted "U"-shaped brass plate...

I would use Balsarite for Film (not Balsarite for Fabric). Hairspray is not going to give you the desired result.

Williams Brothers has dummy radial engines from 4.25" did up to over 11". They will be the lightest. Robert's dummy engines will probably be much too heavy for your use.

Depending on the brand of engine, you may be able to buy an after market pitts-style muffler that will fit better. Try SlimlineProducts.com, BennettBuilt.com, or JTECRC.com.

At 15 lbs or so, I would definitely opt for the 30CC. 20CC would probably fly it but not have much oomph.

Sounds like the piece(s) you are looking for are similar to Great Planes part GPMQ1900. You may be able to use as is or just steal the bracket.

I'm sure they don't. But why the 14SG gyro set up is so far removed from how the 9CAP handled it, and is so unintelligible, is a mystery.

I use 3M 77 spray to adhere the plan to the wood. Wiping a paper towel dampened with Mineral Spirits over the paper dissolves the glue. I think mineral spirits may dissolve most contact sprays.

I use 3M fine line vinyl tape. 1/8" for tighter curves and 1/4" for straight lines and gentle curves. Automotive paint shop is probably the best place to find it.
