Well, I'm one up on Forrest now though. I did my first rudder scrape yesterday. Yes boys, that was in an inverted harrier over the runway too. Gotta love my 47" Edge for 3d training! I think I'm going to put a wire skid on the rudder top. Maybe even the whole landing gear on both sides of the plane.

But Mike! That does not make sense. How you going to have proof of the whole event? Just drop some thin CA on there after every flight. Gives the plane some seriously wicked character. [8D]

Great thread here... Consequently, the OS-46FX runs fine when the remote needle has been broken by an inverted landing, picture the needle valve bouncing around.... Hard to adjust tho- [X(]

I used epoxy to "seal" the top of my rudder from the same "landing"- At my club they are soo old school that my Topcap/OS-50SX combo was clearing out the flightline- they all land and take cover, mumbling about how I should fly a heli if I wanna hover and calling me a "kid" (I am 34)and I am nothing fancy with 3D

Heaven help me when I hand-launch a plane [X(]

Hey hows it goin? I just finished my 47" yak tonight! all there is left to do is break in my new Thunder tiger pro .46. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good prop size for my set up. I saw 12.5/3.75 posted earlier, but anyways I can't wait to fly now. I just need to find some time to do it. Here are a few photos of the completed plane.

Nice! Looks great. The apc 11x 4 is also a good one to try. I'm waiting for my YS 63 to get here,before I can get my Yak airborn.
Guess I'll have to finish the katana ARF, it's almost done, maybey I'll get it in the air today.
I'll post a flight report.

See Ya, Dave

ok guys, i was working on breaking in my new motor today and I have been running into some problems. The main thing is that I can't keep it running for more than like 45 sec. I'm not familiar with the whole break in proccess because i normaly fly electrics so i read through the included manual and did everything it said. 10x6 prop for break in run it very rich (specificallly said 2 -2.5 turns from closed), then just runn it trough a couple of tanks. Well I did all of the steps got it running but it would cut off after about 45 seconds, well finally after this happened a few times it wouldn't even start anymore. I trace the problem to a bad plug... which doesn't make sense because it was brand new and only had about 2 minuets of run time on it. so i replaced it with another and the same searies of events occured, and as before my 2nd new glow plug is shot. So i could really use some suggestions. Are there certain glow plugs that should be used for the engine? I thought most glows used the standard #8. WOuld freash fuel make the difference? I dunno any suggestions would be great.

old fuel....how old? very possible. I like the A3 plug, one has lasted for two seasons. What do you mean by "shot"? will it glow when hooked up to a battery? are you using the right voltage? to much will burn the plug out.to lean a run can burn a plug too.if the fuel is goog and fresh that is one less thing to factor in,so go get some fresh fuel and try again.
kinda sounds like it was running so rich it would foul the plug and quit, I would try a leaner setting.

hope any of this helps, good luck
