Guys hoping you can help me. The next door neighbours 1500 dollar ragdoll cat likes sleeping on my car. I'd like to polish the car but that would make it to slippery for the cat to climb up, it would extend it's claws further and then maybe i got to repaint parts of my car. Should i just shoot it ?


Jim thats a nice ryan and it's got plywood in it i'd skip the fa150 and go straight to an fa220 like i did.

Here's a shot of that dang ragdoll cat after it's had a haircut, makes it harder to hit them when they are smaller ...

Has anyone tried Turnigy props? They have the large props that I would use on my 100CC DA for a really good price, but that old saying, you get what you pay for comes up.

Repeated well aimed high pressure hose or a light spraying of Scat? Or you could plant some Catnip close by and keep him too high to climb on the car.

I used a very precise fitting pair of these to fit the .25" pilot on the B&B to the weird sized hole in the Xoar.

I haven't tried Turnigy's but received this Xoar yesterday in 16 x 8 for my Saito 150 and have an 18 x 6 coming for the 182 twin

In case none of you ever purchased these K&S tubing scraps, they come in mighty handy when a B&B prop reamer pilot is the wrong size for a prop hole.

Dave, are the glo-devil plugs marked in any way? I won't buy unmarked plugs anymore, too easy to get confused.

The Xoar is purdy

I still have a few NIP Merlin plugs I snagged in Toledo for $4 each. I think I have switched out a total of 2 bad plugs since 2011.

I would have to look at the package. Since the owner passed, the site has been down to one page so no information is available. He passed almost a year ago and no mention on if they will sell or fold completely.

Sad, Merlins are the plugs of choice by many performance 2 stroke enthusiasts.

K&S , the people who sell the brass tubing at hobby shops used to sell those bags. Haven't seen them around lately but you could check their website.

I bought a huge lot of the Merlin plugs at the Toledo show the last time they were there. Great guy.

Thanks on the Xoar prop, the Glo-Devils are not marked but are distinctive by their extra wide hex. You would have liked the Taipans, they are marked by the color of

You might say they are well marked.


The one with the silver ring is the 4c plug.
the post seal.

Amazon still carries the K&S scraps, Tower no longer carries them.

Looks like the TH mufflers produce a peak gains of over 200rpm vs. stock mufflers on every engine you've run lately. Very nice.

How are you liking the H9 tacho? Is that the one where you have to flip through 8 or 9 different prop types to get to the 2-blade setting?

Xoar WWII prop on Saito 150
Thanks, I only have to do all that flipping if I change it to three blade, it stays on two blade between uses. The rpm range I've experienced is 160 to 310 for various engines. The 125 did not respond at all. I should qualify that by saying that was the old style 125. I have the new style now.

Falcon has some great looking old time and WWII wood props as well. I run the old timer prop on my big Waco and the WWII 3 blade on my Saito radial in my Corsair

My only issue with Falcon are the holes are too big. Going to look for those K & S scraps.

It looks like they have some accessories for just that:To ensure you are able to get the fit you need we sell Propeller Insert trees. These inserts will allow you to reduce the center hole from 10mm in increments; these can be used to convert any 8 mm or 10 mm to the following sizes : –
8mm
6mm
5mm
4mm
3mm

Yeah, both props came with those. The issue is their "10MM" hole in the hub is closer to 11MM and is sloppy on the 10MM shaft of the FG-30.

I like the color coding on those glow plugs.
