    Quick V racing

    I've been thinking hard about doing a little Q500 racing but so far have resisted. A couple of days ago one of my flying buddies unloaded a squadron of Quick V's on me for not much money. Two are...

    Billy I'm sorry to hear that. Bill was a neat guy and while I didn't get to see him often he always brightened the place up. Have you let the SPA guys know? I know Bruce would want to hear about it....

    RE: OS FP engines v.s LA engines??

    Steve having run many of both, they are both pretty good engines. The FP's are built using some older mfg. methods and they seem more 'solid' if you know what I mean. Still, the LA's seem to run just...

    RE: Completed Magician !!

    Nosen 310

    The other night I was caught in a weak moment at the hobby shop. There was a Nosen 310 stuck off in the corner. It had some wintip damage, no cowls and was missing a window. It has been primed but...

    ST3000 problem

    I'm having an ST3000 problem and just can't find a solution. The engine goes just fine early in the run but after 4 or 5 minutes if I throttle back at all the engine will flame out. It does it...

    RE: What of the American made engine?

    Bob I stand well and truly corrected. I had no idea your product line has gotten this extensive. You can bet I'll be looking into it further. I really need to get out more.

    RE: Home and Hobby Primus

    Skip some people will probably disagree with me on this but I don't think the Saito .72 will be enough. Try the .91. If I recall their .91 is a bit lighter than the OS. Personally I have an OS .61FX...

    RE: What of the American made engine?

    I admit to being an OS nut. When flying pattern seriously I found that the OS 2 and 4 stroke motors made sense to me while I couldn't get a YS to run more than three times in a row without an...

    You know what they say, there are two kinds of r/c pilots, those who have crashed an airplane and those who will. Welcome to the club and you can count on crashing another one someday.

    RE: OS engines forum
