I have too much to do as of now, but maybe next year, I still have the TeleSport (Spark-O-Matic) to build LOL

ummmmm,,,,, the TeleSport would be a true monster with the 82 in it LOL

Jimbo nice vid of the corsair and fg90 cubes really do rule in the sound department eh? remember saito's old fa325 five cylinder radial? very small pots and sounded like a sewing machine when you gave it some throttle.Same with the OS inline four although they both sound good at idle.He reefs the corsair about a bit but it fairly hammers along and you need to do that at those speeds sometimes plus the engine/airframe combo looks and sounds so good that the adrenaline level would be peaking too,least that's been my experience flying fast tail draggers and showing off.Nice to see that flown so well.

That corsair looks just like andy's (barracuda hockey) although the vid he posted was very short.

ps there was a guy in the UK who had a better part made so the fuel was distributed to all three cylinders better in the earlier fg84??

My very old, silk and doped Hog went in for the last time in 2017. I let a friend fly it. He used those 2.4 GiggleHurts radios and forgot to extend the antenna on my old 50mHz ham band transmitter.
I think next Hog will be Hog Bipe. We had a fellow at the Fraser Field who flew his Hog Bipe for years on an early Saito 65. An excellent combo.
My Hog had a Saito 65 at first but wound up with a well used .72. Sure hated to lose it like that.https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...76201486F1E09E

yup
thatís a Beautiful hog bipe. Mine has the 125 on it. But I like how they fly with the 91 better. I have second bipe I think I will try the 100 in that one.

That one isn't mine. I had a regular Hog. Next one will be the Bipe. Probably should pick up a kit while they are still being made.
Think I will put a 65 on it just like old Jack had on his.

Last week I had some plans printed out. One is a 1/4 scale Corsair. I also have a Hellcat and I think a 1/7th B-25, the older version with the top turret in the rear, and will probably be modeled as a Doolittle Raider. Now if I can only get my current B-25 finished, and Corsair, and P-51, then I can start on my Liberty Sport Bipe that will get a Gemini 120. I also have the Ziroli P-61 Widow kit and have all the glass for it. No Saitos for this one though, got a pair of NGH 38CC for it. The B-25 I am building got the Saitos.

Graupner 10 x 5


Graupner 10 x 5


Graupner G-Sonic 10 x 6

The Graupner 10 x 5 will jerk an LT 25 out grass in about 4 feet, the 10 x 5.5 will do same if grass is short..

PS, this is with the added nose gear.

Gary, that Hog Bipe is super nice !!

as for the videos, the Hogs really go with only an 80 in them, I can see I better be on my toes for the Mustang's first flight. BTW, the Mustangs wings are glued, and for some crazy and unimaginable reason I just happen to apply just the perfect about of Epoxy cause I only had 3 or 4 drops squeeze out, other than that you can see the epoxy stopped right at the edges of the root ribs, I used Gorilla glue in the holes for the wing Joiner. it worked slick and I feel smarter than the average bear

Here are some more Saito 30 numbers, turning a Bolly Clubman 10.5 x 5. Wildcat 10% full synthetic and ? plug. I should get some using a Xoar 10 x 6.

Well, now I have to go look at my Cub because I think that is a GK 100 in it. Now that is a gret running engine. Funny thing, the guy I bought it from, AND HH, could not get it to run. I knew right away what the issue was when I tried to start it, and a minor adjustment to the LSN, and it purred like a kitten, and idled so low I didn't think it would ever stop.

LOL I went to fit the Mustang's wing to the fuselage
1) and it's a no-go of course LOL,
2) the wing wont fit in the fuselage cutouts as it should, of course,
3) I have a lot of sanding to do > of course.
4) I will have to get an Incident Meter, of course,
5) LOL and I don't know the Incident, of course..
I Emailed AirBorne, hopefully they have the Incident numbers, LOL and hopefully my friend will let me use his meter.

my best thoughts here on this are to never-never-ever buy another Wolds Models plane again,,, and with that you don't want to know my worst thoughts on this

what a bunch of junk these 2 planes have been
