Default RE: OS 1.20 Go Boom....!!!

Wow, totally impressive too. Sort of a which came first the chicken or the egg in that situation. Either the piston skirt came off or the rod let go or both maybe at the same time. I would probably bet on the piston skirt coming off first though.

Is it repairable if you replaced the rod and piston?

Thanks for sharing the pics of the failure. It is something worth thinking about.

What size prop were you using and what fuel were you using too? Just curious.
