Steve I found M4 X 50mm at my local hobby shop in the car section (don't tell my friends I was in the car isle). They were the perfect size with my standoff's

RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

Spad -- just email RCV support they will send you a new muffler -- I had problems with mine also -- The OS 91 FS muffler will fit the down pipe on the RCV also if you happen to have one of those...

RCV 120 Muffler

I got the RCV 120 and have been running it in on a test stand -- I have just a little over an hour of runtime on the engine. I was running it today and noticed the engine exhaust note got...

RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

Whoops I just went back and checked -- mine also point to the rear -- didn't pay too much attention to the arrows -- just went by the book and put the short leg forward. I just checked my super...

RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

If you look inside the fuse on either side of the fuel tank you can see the hardwood they are refering to. The red arrows are supposed to point forward -- the Super Stearman had the same stickers. ...

RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

pettit -- do you have some pics of how you mounted the throttle servo -- I am going to try to figure out how to get it out on the firewall somewhere as my current setup seems to be binding a little.

I got the RCV engine yesterday -- I will start working on mounting it this afternoon. I took a quick look and looks like it will be an easy install -- at quick glance it looks like I will need to...
