Congrats on your purchase again. For the onboard glow, I went with the unt that is being sold here on rcu. it is less expensive than the McDaniels on board glow system and simpler to setup. McDaniels was $130 the anderson unit I got was $75 including the batteries.I am using standard four stroke glow plugs OS #7 I think but I cant be sure from here. Realize I havent run my motor yet so take it for what its worth.

It worked at 10PM eastern

But apparently they don't want you to link to a search?

Just go to www.hobbypeople.net and do a search for magnum 400

It will come right up.

Seb: I started out using five brand new OS "F" four stroke plugs and proceeded to immediately blow them due to an ignorant move on my part. So, after that I installed Tower Hobbies two stroke plugs and the engine has been running beautifully on them. However, I need to keep glow power applied at all times or the lower cylinder glow plugs flame out. Understand though, I am only breaking in the engine and only have one hour on it so far.

For a glow driver, I started out using two 1.5V dry cells in parallel. I have since switched to a nicad pack of 1.2V cells all paralleled together.

Kmot, I had the problem with "flame out" of cylinders on several engines and it seems to be caused by uncontrolled combustion due to too much load by a too big prop. In every case the problem disappeared after using a prop with une or two inch less diameter or inclination. The rpm rise was only 200 or 300 rpm, but the engines ran more freely and smothly, and had no more flame out with the glow plugs switched off.

Was this during the break-in or after the engine was fully run in?

It was during the break in and afterwards. I only run the engine at 2000 to 3000 rpm for the first one hour with the plugs switched on all the time. When I then try max rpm the first time, the phenomenon occured. I normally, if everything goes right, go flying the engine after two hours and I always could reproduce the effect even after break in. You can check if the engine has this, when You try colder plugs, if You can get higher rpm with the cold plug compared to OS "F", for example, then it's the point for sure. Once I could even eliminate the effect with colder plugs, it was with my Seidel ST 540. But I also use a smallr prop on this engine now, just not to torture it that much. I think it will occur on most engines which have high power output due tu high compression ratio.

I think it's worth to try, if Your engine has enough rpm safety to the recommended max rpm (for safty a minimum of 1000 rpm).

ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

There is a SMOKING HOT Seidel ST996 for sale on ebay. This one is one of the few that actually matches the claims of the seller and has never been run! It looks like it's been stored in a hermetically sealed chamber!

IF YOU GOT IT, THIS IS THE ONE TO SPEND IT ON...

Chasrb,

My forecast is that the 4-stroke gas radial will dominate the market. It has and will continue to be the source of inspiration for many great 1/3rd scale airplanes yet to come. The RCS 150 is the one to watch.

PS,
I will send you one of the new DVD's.

I'm thinking about holding out for a gasser radial. I just bought the Saito R3 1.70. What a magnificent work of art. I get off just by looking at it.

Has anyone flown the R3 .90 as yet? Is it strong enough to fly a .60 two-stroke designed model with aplomb?

Late last night I finally made the decision to buy a five cylinder radial glow engine. While I was thinking of buying the ASP/Magnum engine for a while, I finally settled on buying an OS or Saito, both serviced here in the USA.

I went to the Tower site to look at the OS R5 again and what to my chagrin should I see? An over night $500 increase in the price. Go see for yourself.

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBY70&P=0

This is similar to what happened many years ago when the Tower Bunch obtained the OS distributorship here in the US. Over night too.

The Saito 90R3 has about the same power as a Saito 65. Approximately 10,000 with a 13-6 APC

holy cow with the OS price increase. Maybe it is worth it but in my opinion you can get 3 magnums for the price of 1 os.......who needs to service theengine when you can just replace it.....

No, it is not "worth it". This is disgusting. I'm really disappointed in Tower. They must be down to their last couple of engines and know that it will be a while before they are going to replaced. Or maybe they know that they won't be replaced.

You don't have to buy them from Tower. I found one for $1494.99 at southeastrc.com. Chief Aircraft doesn't carry the radial.

This shop in Hong Kong is selling the Magnum. I was going to buy from them but found a NIB from Jamaica. About $60 for 3 - 5 days Shipping.
