    John,

    I did mentioned you earlier to use better engines and also to mount them side ways vs inverted!, you could have been flying by now. Oh well

    Take your time as season has officially ended already, no rush....

    OS la engines won't run upside down for very long, I think it's the air bleed carb, the engines are great otherwise. (I tried for half a season the went to a magnum 46 inverted and it worked fine)

    RE: scratch built c130

    My OS46la that I bought six or so years ago gave me many reliable flights (and I think I only used one or two OS#8 plugs) until I put it on my PT19 and tried to make it run inverted. Other than that I had no plane for it and wanted some smaller engines, so I traded it.

    RE: scratch built c130

    It's better to stay away from these LA's on twin and multi engined air crafts, it's greater risk factor and double or quad times financial loss if airplane goes down due to inferior quality engines!

    All carbs suck, that's what they are supposed to do! Suck fuel, suck air...

    Many people have had problems with Saito 72's as I did, and maybe the same solution would work with OS air bleed carbs: add a velocity stack.
    Unfortunately OS doesn't make velocity stacks (luckily Saito does).

    RE: scratch built c130

    Here's my 2 cents worth. I have an OS 46LA mounted inverted.Had a lot of problems keeping it running, flooding and dying and such. 2 things that really helped me is,I quit trying to choke it. Just turn it over with the starter till fuel is flowing. And the best thing i did for it is is to make a loop in the fuel line.I came off from the fuel tank with a 90 degree fitting, pointing straight up,then looped it back down to the carb and haven't had a problem since.It's cheep and easy and worth a try.

    RE: scratch built c130

    I tried extending 2 stroke mufflers with tubing on previous models & it lead to trouble. No problems with 4 strokes. Perhaps if you are redesigning the nacelles & mounting the engines sideways you can go back to the standard muffler set up & just tuck them into the side of the nacelle like this. This uses OS FP 40's & OS RC 20's, yes, with air bleed carbs. - John.

    RE: scratch built c130

    Well the bad news.. I have got the OS91fx mounted and ready to go and now because of money problems.. no work to be exact...
    i have to sell the C13o before i get to fly it.
    I am asking 2500 or best offer at this point
    So if are looking for a 1/10 scale plane to have fun with. this it it.
    SO MAKE A REASONABLE OFFER AND THEN I MAKE THE HOUSE PAYMENT.. AND START ALL OVER FOR THE NEXT C 130.

    well guys finnally thru bankruptucy and just about losing my house...
    i have 4 new os 91 on the plane now. scrapped the syncro.
    changed to os 91's horz mounted....
    had to add two news pods for the fuel.. the 91's on first tanks only gave me 6 minutes run time.
    now i have 32 oz per engine. should keep it in the air 15 min or so....any questions holler at me.
