I received several Taipan plugs from a gent in Australia, (Fiery), I think I traded him a PAW .19 or 60 for some stuff.

I like the way you think outside the box bruce, so i'll take this opportunity to apologize for my crude remarks years ago about your no good for rabbit shootin 9mm.

Nice wooden prop dave it sort of reminds you of the old sopwith camel props from ww1.

Thank you mike i took your advice about the cat. She trusts me because i never did anything bad to her before, so sneaking up on her while she was sleeping on the bonnet was kids play. Pulled the trigger on the high pressure hose and the cat near hit the carport ceiling then landed on my cars sunroof and skedaddled for freedom, sadly the carport roller door was shut, hell of a booming sound, I think it would be kinder to shoot it

Here in the Great Lakes area, surplus cats are highly sought as bait.
Sure , shooting is kinder ( the 9mm works well) but using them as fishing bait is far more productive. Of course, you can carry it in to the corner Chinese restaurant and have them make something tasty.

Hey now. I happen to like cats, have one sitting on my lap now snoozing and purring. I have dogs too, would rather shoot those stupid things than a cat.

I like cats too, mine, outside only and no one else's. He's a great mouser, moler and such-er. I'm allergic to pet dander in a big kind of way but he's perfectly happy outside year round. Well, he's allowed in the garage when the temp dips below 15.

A 9mm is not nearly as merciful as a 22-250.

Good day at the field today. This morning we extended our fabric runway. Everyone was best so by noon they all went home. Plenty hot and a good stiff wind so I stayed until 4:00 and put a gallon of homebrew 14%?with castor through the Saito 125. It hauls the Dragonlady 120 very nicely. Turned out to be a great flying plane. Took of and flew with no trim correction needed. The slow rolls are very nicely axial with minimal elevator and a bit of rudder.

I like cats too, if they are cooked right


Really, nothing against cats, but I would never have another one. (Without Soy Sauce)

Gary, you're one sick puppy......I love it!

Hey, how long do those fabric runway systems last?

Thanks,

I think

From what I hear, about 10 years. I was club VP when it was first proposed. I initially had been opposed for several reasons. Yet, it became obvious that a growing number really wanted the fabric runway.
I proposed a shorter, trial runway at one end of the field.and we brought it to a vote. They loved it, very soon we were doubling the width. First thing this spring the club decided to double the length. That we did today.

I must say, for the general membership, the fabric runway is a runaway success. I still prefer all grass but hey, the other 99 members seem very happy

Now need to relearn my touch and go low level, low speed figure eight tactic as the grass area I used is now a lot smaller, but the field is indeed seeing a lot more use. That is good for the hobby, even if it is a bunch of foamy fliers wearing their pink sweat pants, talking about their winter homes in Arizona, their new SUV and their stock portfolios.

I can still find my own satisfaction by firing up a big Saito front and center, running very rich and the fuel laden propwash making them go home smelling like icky Klotz and castor oil.

Subtle, sweet revenge.....

It is a weatherproof fabric used for an underlay for paving as in roads and parking lots. Heavy duty stuff but relatively inexpensive. Held down with large wire staples, it has held up very well so far with minimal maintenance.

Not really jim flat cats (roadkill) protect road asphalt really well, and when you hit one inside 300 yards with a 22-250 it spreads them evenly over a large area of ground and fertilizes it evenly. Just two things cats are good for.

I remember the first time i ran the fa220 at a busy and slightly windy club day. Concentrating on running the fa220 in right, and failed to notice where all castor laden smoke was being blown. Over all the armchair wannabe be experts was the answer. Since they mostly flew smelly two strokes or heli's i never lost any sleep over it

ps gary i don't know how much you have experimented with oil ratios on our saito's, but personally i've got down to 12% total oil, 10% syn and 2 castor, started doing bearings sooner at that level.

Now this part I can agree with, especially the castor part. Those electric wee babies go home smelling like glow fuel when never touching the stuff and then the effects of the castor kick in. LOL

I'm curious as to the attraction to running less and less oil content in glow engines. Running less castor in 4 strokes I can understand but why reduce the overall oil package %? Are there legimate reasons other than short term cost savings? I clean my planes at the end of each flying day anyway, doesn't matter if it's 22% bushed 2 stroke goo or 18% 4 stroke goo.

first off, you clean your planes?
Well anyway the bigger the engine the less oil it needs something to do with oil displacement other then that some of the older guys say I have been running this for 50 years and its ok. But Science has proven otherwise. Also the synthetic oils have got much better then the old days were all you had was caster.

Longer run times for one. With less oil content there is room for more actual fuel in the tank. The FG series uses a 20:1 ratio of oil to fuel, which is only 5% oil content. Because of the variables between different size engines, and different manufacturers, fuel companies have found a happy medium for all engines to be content. Mixing your own fuel, then gives you the option to adjust down the amount of oil for your particular engines. With lower oil content, it also gives finer needle adjustments for tuning since you are now tuning for a higher fuel to oil content and can get a few more RPM's out.
