    Kim, my 80" Bronco had a slight nose down attitude with roughly 30 degrees flaps. That worked for me, so I didn't add any elevator mixing.

    Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. I'm hoping to stir up a little motivation for other slow builders like myself! If all goes well, the maiden flight will be in the next couple of days.

    BTW, I've never needed on board glow or twin sync with OS engines. It's not just the carb; the machining, the design, the metallurgy and quality control also come into play with some cheaper engines....

    Congratulations on the maiden flight! Thanks especially for the information about the power performance. I had a glow powered Hog years ago and was wondering how it would fly with electric power.

    Jtec may have a muffler for you. Check out the "in cowl" and "wrap around" style mufflers. They can also make custom mufflers for just about anything.
