    Maybe seize the lapped piston? :)
    Within reason, oil content as no effect on revs.

    Definitely made in Russia, in fact it's even cast into the side of the RH mount lug :). Yours is the same as mine with the first type head button that a Cox spanner fits.

    This may or may not work but you've got nothing to lose :) so try running the engine with about 3-5% acetone added to the fuel. You may have to use an electric finger at first but take note of how...

    Those shavings probably aren't going to cause too many problems (if any) because it obviously uses a cast iron piston in a steel liner and there's no ball races to worry about. What intrigues me...

    Probably the best reason is by looking at the comparison between the Cox Olympic 15 and the Tee Dee 15. Both are virtually identical except the Olympic uses a reed valve with the Tee Dee being...

    Ordinarily I keep away from arguments especially when it's over something as minor as a bit of oil leaking from a bearing but when some AH talks about crickets and sends a PM saying "maybe stick to...

    This is incorrect. I generally run engines in a 4 stroke (which I suspect you'd call pig rich) and, when running in some engines, have them so rich they'll barely keep running yet they don't lose...

    I'm guessing it's a II because mine has a III stamped on the edge of the LH mount. I'm a bit hazy on internal changes but the original 60X had a 15mm crankshaft and a different front end casting.

    All of the RC 60-II and III had the holes for the exhaust baffle. These were dropped with the introduction of the 60-IIIB but there's a trap. Some of the early 60-IIIB's were built using the RC...

    That's my take on it too seeing he's removed the backplate and could see the side of the big end touching the crankcase. It's obviously not touching hard enough to stop the engine from being turned...

    That's the first time I've seen a model gas turbine with a proper afterburner. Colour me impressed :). It's proper because it's got a variable area outlet but I was also impressed by the simple way...

    I'm also going for the Radian but just the basic PNP version because the DX6 Tx comes with the AR610 Rx so I'll use that in the Radian. The Adagio 280 that I'll also be getting comes fitted with an...

    Kept totally air tight and stored in a cupboard then just about indefinitely. Being air tight is the key though because,if not, then it'll slowly absorb moisture from the air.
