RE: Can't drill parallel.

You could also fabricate a jig to align the holes or
bite the bullet and buy the Robart drill guide

RE: Glider "Porpoising"-HELP

The porpoising is during glide, not powered flight. It was nose-heavy causing up-elevator

Hi everybody. I am in the process of mounting a Zenoah G20EI in my Corsair and wondering if anybody did it already

Your avatar looks like when I was in the USAF and F-111's would dump fuel, hit MAX AB and light it up.
