Got my order of metals for the mill. Looks like I should be good for playing with it for now.

Great day at the field today with the P51. I finally got everything right enough to fly. Replacing the 6V NiMh pack with a 6.6V 26650 A123 LiFe pack made a big difference. The FG21 ran better than ever. A lot of positive comments from the old fogey peanut gallery crew on how smooth the engine sounded at all rpm.

Nice bundle of materials acdii. Lots of fun coming up. Once you get some balls you can bend your pipe.

I would like to commend all those who were sorely tested but resisted making any off color remarks about the discuss of the items mention in the post above. There I just planted every possible remark I may or may not have just been thinking in your collective heads without earning the wrath of the mods!

The engine would of course have to be installed in secret or any Saitos present that might witness it would need to be blindfolded. I can call the airplane a stand off scale to keep any other fliers from looking too close.
As usual mike you are far too modest...everyone left this alone, i was staggered.

Wish me luck, have to go up and replace a square of shingles before the weather turns. Supposed to get rain and strong winds, AGAIN! Same freaking direction as Tuesday when 70 MPH winds ripped part of my roof up.

I have safety meetings with the crew before going up high on roofs, scaffolds etc. That way they all know if they fall they're fired before they hit the ground.

I had a friend right out of high school who got a job on a roofing crew. He was on a 3 story apartment building when he slid off and landed on concrete. He got lucky he only broke one ankle and sprained the other one.

Roof patched where I could not tack down for now, still have a few places I need to pull the shingles and replace them. 2 hours on the roof and I ache all over. Getting too old for this schiznit. Going to go replace the tubes with LED now in my shop and play with my Saitos.

Mike. when I read that post I had a grin on my face, wondering what the other guys would say. then my thoughts turned to Pete .

I'm glad you are feeling better

oops, my OS 70SZ Heli engine set up for a plane, it's going in a GP Shoestring. that is if I ever can figure out how to fit a muffler in it.

Jim, I'll bet J'Tec could make you something if they don't have a stock pits muffler.

Thanks Gary, I look forward to playing some more.
Mike C. I'm going to run the 120-s one more time, but on the S&W 15% just to limber it up some more.
I see a Urologist tomorrow am for a high PSA count.
We still have lakes everywhere where there aren't supposed to be any, pine trees falling over all over the place.
I managed to keep dry and build the left half of the Robin Hood 25 wing and 75% of the right half. It's a great kit, so precise.

JIm, what is the hole spacing on that OS engine? Thanks

Good fitting parts makes kit building waaaay more fun. Wish they were all like that. You made a lot of progress in a short order.

OS 70SZ mounting dims: 52mm wide X 25mm

Thanks Dave! The Robin Hood's assembly system is top of the line, very well thought out, I'm not surprised you are so far along. From what I saw of the Robin Hood 80 it was equally impressive.
I emailed the Old School about their version of the Ken Willard Bristol Spadport Sunday Fighter to see if the plan on making the German version. Mark answered my emails pronto and is really nice guy. I plan on ordering the Heinschmitt when it is released if I'm working again.
Mike
