    I used the OS #8 in all of mine. It's a high compression engine and designed for zero or low nitro fuel. I used 15% but they ran better with 5%. Where on earth did you find a new one?? H-9 only...

    As one of my old instructors told me, it's your plane, you can do anything you want to it.;) I agree with Jester about the muffler but the last one I built was the CG Cub and the fellow I built it...

    Just easier. It helps keep the fuel tank and needle valve set correctly and places the needle valve on the top of the cowl. Cubs have the cylinder heads sticking out on both sides so having a model...

    This or any graduated oil mixing cup from a motor cycle shop is a must have item. They are idiot proof. Use the brand and Mix DLE advises at least for break in then you can find a favorite. I use...

    A few pages back there is a complete and still going thread on the CG Extra. Te plane is still highly sought after. Several of us have templates we made of every part in the kit, please do the same....

    If all you are doing is setting up a two or three channel plane there isn't a lot of point in it at all. If you are setting up a plane with ailerons you want then both at the same center and moving...

    They still sell them but did you notice the price. They take no time at all to make. I have never measured the rudder throw on a plane, I set them for as much as I can get but it works great for...

    Yes, I have noticed them being warm after charging but it usually happens when the pack was almost at a full charge. Been a while sense I have charged a pack so I don't recall where I have my...

    Rain??? Moisture???? I never gave that a thought but it is a good point. I used a wood dowel on a 33% Extra and it worked out well but moisture is not a problem most the time here. Something to think...

    I take my old packs to batteries plus and they just build me new packs. If you don't have a store close to you then call Horizon. Flight packs you can get at any hobby shop. The TX pack too. I have...

    It's the weight. If you haven't cut the holes in the ribs you can also use PVC. I made one last year with aluminum and made the outer from fiberglass. PVC doesn't come in 1.5 OD. Not that I could...

    In those days where I am bored but don't feel like jumping into a build I often make up degree meters from scrap wood I have around the shop. I mnake them in left and right so I can set up both...

    Yep, that's what his photo showed. Just getting in another 1/8 piece would do the trick. When I'm building a plane I always add in extra wood so the hinges have something to hang onto but ARFs are...

    Yes, that is a Du-Bro flat hinge and they come in many different sizes. I do find it odd {even for an ARF} that they have such a small TE and LE. There is also a very small, about a 1/16 hinge pin by...

    No, a hinge pin is just a barbed two piece point. The flat hinges look a bit like a CA hinge cut in half with a brass pin holding them together. They come in several sizes. I just used the last of...

    At most swap meets you will find tons of older radios for sale for next to nothing. Great source of parts. If all else fails then just give Radio South a call and they will have exactly what you need...

    Du-Bro makes the flat hinges in several sizes and they work great. I have used the ones they make for 1/2-A planes on several of my builds where they only have a shallow depth and narrow width. These...

    I agree with John but another good one is the Sr. Telemaster. Like the Kadet it will fly well with a lot of different engines and a .51 would work well in one. The only down side to either one is...
