    The plywood fuselage is nice because it saves interior space like fiberglass fuselages do.
    The V-Tail needs space in the aft end for a lengthy control horn and for the torque rods to converge.

    300 sqs makes it more of a "Pilot's Event" and it deters "engine cheating" because the extra drag penalizes attempts to go faster than the guys who fly legit.
    An arbitrary figure..? Maybe they tried...

    I get extremely jealous watching not just the great racing, but the 360 degree panoramic view of no buildings, no power lines, just wide open country.

    Those are very slick looking..!
    I'm glad to see that they've continued to have their fun with engines by moving up to .15s.

    There have been a lot of naysayers who claim that .018" steel flying cable would simply vaporize.....but none of them were standing right there at the Lincoln Nats.

    That's really a pretty job..!
    Based on what I know about what it takes to do 123 mph with a .061 engine...[without the extra drag of an exposed pipe]..he must have been getting unreal boost from...

    Thanks for the offer..! I'll keep it in mind if I ever want to do a Caliente type project.

    Oh yes, I remember something now about planes that could take off from thick grass.
    Those 4 stroke engines do deserve to get some playing time, too. The only one I had demanded daily playing time or...

    Running Coxes like this is it's own separate hobby that I might try someday.
    I'm still waiting for the sponsorship deal from COX to be finalized.

    If you just adjust the EPA, you are not improving the servo's mechanical advantage...plus the servo spends more time rubbing against fewer teeth.
    Restricting the EPA makes the servo's job more...

    The short answer is to get in touch with Performance Specialties to place an order for props, plugs, a spare head, spare needle, etc....and ask Dave to steer you in the right direction.

    That is some very good looking porting...!
    I've been afraid to "face off" the top of the liner and break through the plating...but it is something I'll try now.

    Anyone with an electric drill can lighten a TD piston.
    If you look at a KillerBee's piston skirt thickness and compare it to a TD's you will see one of Cox's speed secrets.

    I don't know if he did any mods...[but he is a machinist]. He wanted me to continue raising the liner, but that would have made it necessary to make a custom head. These are things he could easily do.

    It played back the best for me at 480....could be because of limitations at my end. The screen freezes every couple seconds with HD selected.

    It's pretty hard to beat that simple layout.
    I ought to try a ASP.12 powered Quickee with a 1/4" slab wing, too.

    I've never been able to visualize how a .049 engine could do a F4 Phantom justice.
