Thanks RagwingFan!
Yeah....I'll just have to play with it to figure it out.

My early G-38s don't have a choke, either..

With the ignition off, I put a finger over the carb and flip the prop to draw fuel. Once my finger is wet, I turn on the mag and the engine starts easily.

I would think that the G-62 would be similar.

Thanks Tom. This carb has holes on the sides of the case like it was designed for or may have had a choke at one time. I don't know....gonna search out the numbers in a bit. If I place my thumb over the intake, it doesn't do any good due to the other two holes.

sure looks like choke has been pulled. you would have to close up the 2 side holes in order to close off end with thumb and draw suction.

few options

either find choke pieces, shaft and butterfly
or JB weld holes or an RTV sealant
or change carb out completely

Yep.....gonna shop around tomorrow and see if I can get the parts. The engine fires right up with a shot of fuel in the carb.

The Cessna flies! Got in two flights this weekend....no surprises thank goodness. I'm used to aerobatic planes....could definitely feel the weight of this thing. Flew very scale...the power to weight felt scale also. Slowed up well for landings at half flap....didn't try no flaps or full flaps. I'll slowly work the flaps down as I fly it more. Test flew it with a zinger 22x10 two blade. I'll try the 3 blade at the Nall.
Thanks to those who offered tips and suggestions! I'll add some finished pics soon. Researching today to see if I can find a choke assembly for the carb.

Glad to hear she flew successfully. can't wait for some pics

hope you have good luck in finding parts. I went rabbit trail chasing on topic. it appears the carb is an HDA-48 at least what I could find. I could find choke shaft. seems the choke valve is hard to come by. I would think there would be some crossover with all the Walbro carbs made.

good luck with her

Hannah. Can you share the flying weight of your Cessna?

Took a couple pics at Triple Tree after last nights flights.....plane flies great on the 20x10 3 blade. At just above half throttle it has a nice sound and scale speed. I'll try to get it weighed next week and hope to post a video soon.

Not bad at all for a Cessna that size. My Hangar 9 Cessna 182 with a 97 inch wingspan weighs in just shy of 30lbs and is powered by an OS FT-160. It's able to fly scale-like and doesn't tear up the skies. I just ordered a 120 inch version from Tmmy and I'm curious to know how heavy that will come up to.

RonTins,
Good to hear. Early on I weighed what I had minus covering and all the little things which obviously add weight. At that time I figured it would be 30-32 lbs. I would have been more worried knowing it would come out at 34+, but it flies very scale. I didn't want a plane that flew so fast it didn't look scale. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is just right.....it all worked out.
Thanks for your comments throughout this thread. Hopefully you'll do a build thread for your TMMY. Looking forward to seeing pics when you get it!

Man you inspired me a simply had to pull the trigger on the tmmy 120 version generation 2 which comes with opening doors and hatches on the cowl as well, just like her bigger version. I'll continue posting to the existing thread for the tmmy 120 version. It should be ready in 3 months.

Congrats once again.

Awesome!

So the 206 was finished enough to fly, but there are still some scale things I'd like to add. When starting this project I toyed around with the idea of adding nav lights, but decided it wasn't worth the effort. However, while at the Joe Nall, I noticed numerous models that had super bright lights that were very visible in the daytime....even with the sun shining. I spoke with one gentleman who had a C130.....his lights were by a company called braincube. Website is braincube Americas for US distribution. I might give these a try......his C130 looked great. They have a setup for a Cessna.
I'll have to add a pilot/seating at least in the front also. Sort of taking a break from this thing right now, but I'll post when I add some things.
