PM me your address and I will get the wingtips in the mail soon. I need to send a carbon pipe to Germany, so I will get the enjoyment of filling out customs paperwork anyway.... I will certainly let Shawn know that there will be a large bill coming his way.....

Did earlier today. I ran up the OS .91 again today, but now with the shortened Rossi header bonded to that 15cc open pipe I ran last. I may have inadvertently shortened the tuning length slightly when I put it together, but it turned out well actually. It shouldn't pipe up too easily on a 10" pitch prop, so I knew I was not too radical before. This flight setup now jumps a little more skittishly and the mixture is a bit more touchy. It peaked at 17,370 on the 10x10, but running hotter now - predictable if it is working hard. It will richen up to 16k or so static before falling off, and throttles well down to that point, so it ought to launch fine there and pipe up when the prop unloads a bit - which is fine with me.

It may not be running at ducted fan RPM. nonetheless it is evidently not "overtimed" for this RPM range & is putting out some pretty respectable hp. The Sceptreflight tests suggest between 3.7- 4.2hp depending on pipe. The exhaust timing is actually moderate. Easy chicken stick start, once you get it wet. The audio is a bit bodacious, sure sounds like it has some attitude.

Amazing how that works....
I will try to get them in the mail today. I need to send a pipe to Germany, so I get to play the customs game anyway.

Scott

Mike, I sent your wingtips yesterday. The post office does not offer tracking to the land of Polar Bears and Igloos for some reason. They should be there in about a week I guess??? I will text Shawn today and give him an extra ration of crap for not sending you wingtips in 5 years... That right there makes it worth the trouble. Let me know when you get them.

LOL, thanks so much. Since I am the worst mailer/shipper in the world, as proven last time I made up a bunch of Demon kits, I can empathize.. but do enjoy giving him doo-doo.

Canada has not evolved to the point where shipments can be tracked yet, it's all random and half the s--t gets lost in snowstorms or eaten by predators.

Mike, Your wingtips have made it to customs in Canada. I am pretty sure that tracking isn't going to follow it much past that.
