Dude dave is bang on the money with what he is saying,read it carefully if you run the 300t on 20% it's an animal and well worth the in initial weight in fuel at takeoff,did i mention the fg57 gasser sounds really nice but the glow version barks like your favourite hunting dog does? which reminds me..pope where the hell are you boy..if the answer is not waiting for me at the train station,meaning i have to lug the big suitcase with two back wheels all the way from the station down to your place i'd get purty tired and tired people get grumpy at our age,the 30 mil will huff and puff and blow your house down,naturally i'll shoot all around you cause your a mate

Here is a thorough test of the 2.70 by Clarence Lee. he mentions 2.0 oz per minute turning a 20x10 or 20x12. I could not find a test of the 3.00, I'll keep looking. Pete, maybe you're not using enough of the mellowing juice that comes in pretty bottles.

Thanks Dave, the first picture I had tried to post was from my files of your 130t. Attached is another attempt of sending my Spacewalker II with 130t, and a Clarence Lee review of the 130t. FWIW.

Sounds like the passenger is going to need to learn to fly real fast!

Dave search the net for a brian winch article on the 300t,he wrote a couple of reviews for rcm and airborne a few years back.

ps pope i'm headed home..left you a jumbo can of 'pal' dogfood on the train station platform,you can't miss it it's got a lookalike pair of our ex priminister tony abbots green and gold budgie smugglers draped over the can

That doesn't happen often if you mean you bought it that way.

Okay Pope, you got a deal. The only hangup is that I like animals. Some I like even more than bratty kids. How about this for the challenge- you pick out the snotty kid and we'll go kid vs my gun. We have an excess of suitable college aged brats running the streets of America at the moment. Just find a college campus and pick one. The Bernie ones are probably the best.

I have a cat that looks like that when she's hungry. She can make a Pit Bull docile, roll over and beg for mercy.

SSHHH pope those remarks may offend someone.Indigestion in your pet can be fatal,it's alright for you cause everytime the lab draws a sharp breath i'll bet he sucks up two stray tomcats walking past your driveway and the furballs would pass through instantly but not my ankle biter saito he's struggling just bitin the end off a friendly uggboot and has to be taken to the vet straight after..unless i give him a shot of love potion number 9..he's faster than a bottle rocket after a tomcat then
