Well, it looks as though your younger brother has excellent taste in motorcycles, bass guitars and brothers. Tell him we said hello.

I played bass guitar and second guitar professionally throughout most of the Seventies. I now have over forty guitars and basses and I have collected a lot of the old bass amps that I played way back when (acoustic 371).

Thanks Ed. that's not all he has good taste in, this is his 1962 Ford Galaxie Convertible, 390 powered. I rebuilt the carb, put an electronic ignition system and an electric radiator fan on it last summer. He is allowed to do that by the antique car club because the car is in so many parades. He loses no points for the fan etc.

Several years ago he was going to try RC, bought a Goldberg plane and a K&B 40, kept them for a couple of years then sent them to me. I can't remember that name of the plane but my Saito 50 was perfect for it.

Thanks OF and Richard, incidently that building he and his bike are in would make one heck of a model airplane shop, it would hold thousands of Saitos and model airplanes. It is 30 x50 feet with a 10 foot ceiling.

I think you need to post some more pics along the lines of the Hooter's one. Jim and I will have to scrutinize them.

Or even some of the inside photos from RCM Mag. Some of the other old RC mags had some nice pictures also. Remember the wife of one of the radio mfrs that used to pose for his ads? And the ads for some of the small plane kit producers caught your attention also. I don't remember the products, but I do remember the models.

Will we get in trouble if we post some more of these pictures?

Sincerely, Richard

Just how DID they get the curves on that model?



(I am of course talking about the eliptical wing "polyhedral" on the Hobie Hawk)

N1EDM- that is one of the best.

I like posting the old covers but I don't know how others feel about it. It is very rare for anyone to get out of line in this thread. And, look at how many posts there are!

Hey guys, tellya what. For more RCM covers, you can peruse this other thread that has scads of covers already scanned in.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=9909998

Now you can have the best of both worlds. Maybe put a Saito on a RCM plane like the Crusader II spoken about in the last post of that other thread???

OK BTW, I'm back to square one with the 1.70R. Turn low speed needle back to manuals recommended 3 turns out. I prime it, it burns out the primer and quits. I guess I will keep opening the low speed until it sustains. It always ran before at 6 turns, but now won't transition at that setting. It keeps dropping cylinders. Be back later.

I have a Saito FA 65 that is new to me. What is a good starting point for turns of the low speed needle?

Everything is new. New carb, all new gaskets, all new o-Rings on the intakes and on the carb insert. New crank, new cams. Still has original valves and springs, but they looked ok. Even tried aux. fuel tank.

Do you think you leaned it out to much ages ago when you first ran it,to try and keep all cylinders lit while trying to get a slow idle?easy to forget.
