    Sorry, I meant overspeeding the plane, not the engine. It is a 3D plane that is prone to flutter if run too fast.

    I always loved cars and airplanes. When I worked on airplanes, my hobby was cars. When I switched to work on cars, my hobby became (model) airplanes.

    Hi OF. I love that 82, mine is on a U Can Do 46. The plane has no limits. I have to be careful with applying too much power while the plane is not vertically up. Maybe I will switch props from a...

    I love those Turboheaders. If you have a Saito, you don't need the 90 degree bend unless you need the extra degree of freedom. My Saito 91 didn't have a muffler when I bought it used, so I bought a...

    That's similar to the pictures of Enya 4-strokes (never owned one). They also have the cam and pushrods in the rear and the glowplug is angled forward.

    Ok, I see a couple of needles, but where's the flaw? Is it the upper one a little bent?

    BTW, you always use just nice wood in the background. My scrap wood is a lot "scrapier".
