    I don΄t. :-)

    I guess you could rig something up so you could pressurize the tank in the model and thereby empty it into your gas can. That being said I have never seen the need to empty the tank...

    I use a bicycle pump to pressurize my gas can. It only requires two fittings in the gas can, on for the clunk pickup and one for the pump.

    Nice looking twin you have there.
    I do not own any milling equipment, so making a crankcase myself is out of the question. Also, I have no idea how it should be constructed anyway.

    Nope, not yet. The Yak 50 it΄s intended for is still under construction.
    Due to the fact that the engine is quite heavy, more or less the same as a Moki radial, and that the whole plane will be...

    Thanks a lot.
    I΄m quite pleased with it myself. Moki 250 power (almost) in a significantly cheaper package, and more fun than just buying the real thing. I also do not have the money to buy a Moki...

    @Chad.
    I see that you are considering using a Reeves reduction drive. I have tested a few props and exhaust systems on mine, and with the right silencer you will have a very powerful setup.

    The deflection happens no matter which order I turn on the RX and TX. But the deflection is rather small, maybe 20% movement, so maybe it΄s not enough to activate the retract valve.

    I΄m using a Micro 12 in my 1:3 scale Super Cub, and I΄m only using twisted wire for the servos in the wings. So far no problems, even though the wires are quite long.

    Servo deflection at start-up

    Looking for advice here.... When I turn on the model, all servos deflect a bit, and stays there for a second or two before acquiring a signal from the RX. This has never bothered me...

    My Q35 would idle all day at about 1200 rpm, but that was using a rather heavy APC 20x8 prop. I guess a lighter prop would result in a higher idle.

    I might try the hammer procedure if all else fails. Sounds like fun. :-)
    It΄s not an option to cut the shaft though as I need the rear shaft intact.
