    I don't think Dave still sells anything for the Nelsons, it's all handled by Mike Langlois at aero precision machine now.
    Also, I don't think you can still get stuff for the SS engines (I'm not 100%...

    Weather can have a huge impact on these engines, as does altitude. Since you're not racing, I suppose you always fly at the same site? That simplifies things. Get a 1cc syringe to measure the head...

    The Dave Brown spinners are spun aluminium sheet metal ...not even close to being in the same league as a spinner machined from solid barstock.

    I think a Tru Turn will probably handle 30K just fine. If you look at the Jett or Nelson Q40 spinners: they are basically the same construction (the parts that matter anyway) ...at they're not that...

    I can't think if any F3D plane that runs a 2" spinner...so you'd have to have one custom made.

    The endgame will be several videos of SD's powered with a variety of engines and motors, all with decent low passes in front of the camera, so we can all doppler the results! :D

    And the Nelson: it looks like a late F3D FIRE case, with a Q40 muffler can and a carb. If the carb is big enough and the liner is timed in the 190 degree plus area, it should haul.

    If it is what I...

    The bottom intake looks like a major headache on todays planes...

    Or is this engine built solely for the planes with inverted mounted engines? Like Dago Red's from Wolf and such?

    I still fly Rossi 40's in our Q500 sport class... I think they are fine engines.
    With a Nelson Q500 muffler, a 9mm venturi, FAI fuel and an APC 8.75x7.00N prop I'm turning 85-86 second race times.

    5000 props? Makes sense.
    Figure they make 1$ or less on a 3-4$ prop (handling, packing and shipping and other operational costs aside), and lets say 5000+$ for the tooling for a prop...it would take...

    Yes you can still get them.

    The APC Q40 props are pretty stout. Not like a continuous strand CF prop of course, but still, they stand up to some pretty heavy abuse.

    PM's still don't seem to work.

    So put me down for 2 kits when you get everything sorted.
