Default "ROSSI power"

Recently snapped off part of the crank shaft on "Rossi65" while doing the service to my 21 YO "Tiger". Anyone with the spare or the whole old unused engine please drop a line, TX.

Rossi cat. part#16 to fit 60-65 engine.

Well, after bit of advertising on few sites I got a brand new crank shaft coming all the way from the USA, free of charge from "Taylor Made Helis". Rather generous fellow. Many Thanks to Taylor.
Easily replaced with both new ball bearings fitted and this time I have omitted the head shim to get bit more compression.
Also, mixed the new fuel, this time with 3% of Nitro to start with and only 17% Synth. oil, reduced down to 5/15 after first 2 run-in flights to see how it goes next.
Footage of the 2nd. run-in flight today.
(Fully loaded Tiger test flight)

Running like a dream with the new fuel mix, (4/16/80), and removal 1/2 a kilo of useless junk scalish accessories.
