I'm hoping that someone can help me with specs for a 1/3 scale dviii. I have an Easy Tiger Fokker dviii and I need to know where the cog is and what the flying weight should be. Easy Tiger doesn't quite understand the question...... hmmmm...

Stachel, I have built 2 BUSA D7s. You mentioned using a G26 and I think BUSA may even suggest it, but the G38 is an almost perfect engine for it.

Club member build this one in 2005. I now own it. It has a modiflied Honda leaf blower motor. Its is a 4stroke. it also has CDI. When the builder was flying it he used AVGas. and I continued using it too. It has a different sound and it sounds really cool. And of course a good flyer!Enjoy!!

I'm having a devil of a time printing a good honeycomb for my much needed grill.

I find this stuff so durable, I do not think heat will be an issue. My regular wood bandsaw blade did not like it. Maybe I will test a piece of drop material with heat after I cut my parts to size. What kind of glue did you use? Epoxy?
Where did you get the full printed cowl?
- sorry if I missed this earlier...
