That Blue Head is ringed. They had ABC versions in the late 70's, but this is not one of those.

I agree, I have seen NIB Fox and Enya stuck because they test run them with 100% castor oil fuel. Just soak it in some fuel overnight. Or pull the glow plug, and fill it up with fuel. If the...

Serious accident is probably over billion to one. With some education. No need to ground RC aircraft.

Not luck at all. Most drones are just too small to cause any serious damage. In fact I told everybody it would be a long time coming and it will cause very little damage.

I would agree with using ADS-B. But not with ID. Why? Because nobody would use that and very few would have it.

OK but horseshoes are also not allowed. What's with that? Or maybe that is a magnet? BTW a sophisticated gas engine can look just like a glow engine. Are they allowed? And what is the problem...

I believe the HP .40 is the same bolt size as the OS FSR .40 if that helps. Not sure if the Webra was the same. Though the internals are mostly the same.
