I've had bad luck with APCs being balanced. Not complaining about the chore. I also sand the leading edges smooth and check runout.

That Brian Winch is an abrasive sort of guy.

A great dog is a great dog and once youve had at least one you get pretty biased . One thing I cant stand is pitbulls and I do like all dogs unless they bite . Theres no place on the planet for them . They maybe ok for the owners but how could you fully trust them . All they have to is escape or little Johnny jumps your fence to retrieve a ball or granny is walking past and they chew threw the anchor chain and blinged out $ sign from fifty cent and it hits the fan . I know that this may bring down the wrath of god from the oil threads but so be it ! Cheers

Hey Pete, I'd bet that if Dan and I were neighbors we'd be good friends. Although I'd have to tell him to get rid of his Dodge and get a Ford.

Wow, where did that come from? You mean with a Vibra Plex? You're always full of surprises, OF.

How about Konrad, Bruce Loughbaum, and TexasSkyPilot locked in a phone booth trying to convince each other the OS is better than a Saito?

When crunchy mentioned blade tracking i was making a joke about heli's,can't stand to fly a good saito with them.Be about as bad as say my dog saito breaking in to the bar fridge and drinking his whole months worth of love potion number 9 in a single session.Next day the whole population of neighbourhood cats would have the smirk wiped off their faces and walking around like a used pair of roy rodgers saddlebags.

Dave when i was growing up they used to say 'if you can't afford a dodge,dodge a ford' but that was a long time ago.They reckon D.O.T motorcycles stood for 'don't order two'

I was just commenting on the accuracy of when BLW balances is propellers if he also checked blade tracking to be dead on balls accurate. O myself balance down to the hub. Never thought about run out.

And besides who doesn't fly helicopters? It really helps my airplane flying especially with the use of the left stick.

What do you do when a prop is off track a little at idle but tracks true above idle, I personally let em be.

Pete, I have endured all those jockular insults over the years, of course there's always, "I'd rather have Nopar than Mopar. I owned two Dodges over the years, a slant six powered 68 long wheelbase van with double doors on both sides and a 71 Coronet wagon with an early small 318, both great vehicles. The surprise a few years later was 1973 Chevy Vega Kamback wagon with the two barrel 110 hp engine, it went just under 200,000 and only blew one little puff of smoke when hot started. I built my own 2.25" exhaust system for it with a Thrush Turbo muffler.

Hi Dave. Was the Vega with the original aluminum bore (Nikasil?), or had it been sleeved?

I have had one Ford (a 1974 Pinto station wagon), one Chrysler (a 1974 Gold Duster with the 318), and one Chevy (a 1984 Celebrity with the four cylinder). The only one I would have again is the Pinto. Since the Chevy, I have only had 2 Audi, 2 BMW, 2 Fiat, and 3 Toyota. Loved 'em all.

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Flight. * (Santa laying down)

Sincerely, Richard

.
I use both MAS and APC. I have seen the MAS flex both blades (flatten) with application of power, kinda unsettling. The APC do not seem to flex at all. I balance all and check tip track, but have not had tracking issues or prop hole not centered or not perpendicular to the prop path.

Vbr, Richard

I always heard it as Dodge can dodge anything but a gasoline station and a repair garage!

In the spirit of granting equal time:

Ford = Found On the Road Dead

My favorite old truck was my 1964 International Harvester with the big block 345 V8, T98 transmission, and Positrac differential! It had been a wrecker when newly purchased and was back to being a regular pickup.

1964 International Harvester, AKA a Binder, you could hear the fan running for a mile or two. I owned two different Pintos, a 71 with the German 2000 cc, (100 hp)engine and a 73 with the 1600 cc, (70 hp) Kent engine.

Richard the Vega was all original, the only thing I ever did to it was replace the water pump and of course the belt. I ran Arco Graphite oil in it.

My best friend dubbed it the International House of Pancakes because of the "I" "H" symbol on the front of the hood. Darn thing got the same mileage empty as overloaded 11 mpg! It was my first automobile I think I paid a whole $135 for it in 1975. I then spent another $200 to get it into shape as reliable transportation.

I had a friend that owned a 1973 Vega Hatchback, great little car. He only had one chronic problem with it. He liked to hot rod it and the steel ring in the cylinder head holding the spark plug on one cylinder kept blowing out. He considered putting a V8 in ithe Vega but the idea of needing to add a of adding a subframe talked him out of it. He built a hot rod Nova instead.

A pic of my favorite "Binder", locally owned by a pub named Moxie. Mine was last seen in a field with a fallen tree embracing it's fender and windscreen.

Those old Scouts sure could take a licking! I almost bought a 1973 International pickup to replce my 64 but my Dad talked me out of it. It was setup to run on gasoline or LP gas.
