    I am not as familiar with Tillotson as Walbro, but that sounds right. Pull the fuel line right at the engine and make sure the gas flows freely before you go hunting a diaphragm.

    Somewhere I have seen an emoticon with eyes spinning. I am pretty sure I said that already after a fairly long wait.

    Sorry, you are not quite correct. The real question is how long before we are required to PROVE we have not exceeded the limits. Read that as an altitude reporting telemetry requirement for all...

    The time was about 5 minutes before I posted. I guess they are only going to allow a chosen few be law abiding citizens in their attempt at finding more money to throw away.

    Well, that is an improvement but no one can register because it does not send out the account verification email! LOL So special!

    http://www.faa.gov/uas/registration/

    So, much as I predicted, the website link "Register now" results in a blank page being presented.

    And yes, I reported it via two different methods. I...

    While your point IS valid, I look at $5 being not very much to lose while the AMA gets it all together and that it protects me if they decide to do the court thing since I am sure the FAA will be...

    Oh, I did read it very carefully and concluded it is someone's fantasy that the FAA will not act just because the AMA does not want it to.

    I strongly suggest that you check into the costs of...

    Oddly enough we just shipped our club newsletter today. The newsletter editor asked if we should remove the registration instructions from the newsletter. MY answer is a resounding NO.

    Regardless of who is putting it together, a huge issue will be bandwidth. Lets assume there are around 250,000 modelers/drone operators. How many folks would you estimate will try to get registered...

    I have $ that says it crashes before 0800 CST 21 December 2015. The definition of crash runs from not being available (or even in existence) to freezing up and all the possibilities for corrupt...

    I am not convinced that these results are anything but proof that big city folks tend to rule by the raw numbers of available voters to talk to (modelers tend to vote for folks they have met versus...

    ROFLOL!

    I used to burn through powered pumps on almost a weekly rate and it got expensive. So I tried keeping records and comparing brands of pumps. That lasted one season where I determined...

    Thanks Andy.

    I am pretty sure I knew, know, and agree about bind but am not sure I agree totally about all the non-power related bind failures. Everything you have said is software related and...

    The only "taking it easy because of the weight" I know that means anything is the guy on the stick's comfort level. If the airframe is weak, it will fail when you least expect it and probably...

    Sorry, but you are not exactly correct. A bind is NOT FOREVER rather it is as good as the equipment and lasts until the electronics in the circuit fail. If there is a weak capacitor on the RX side,...
