What I have read is the 50 HP radial performed almost as well as the 65 but the 65 was smoother.

Piper made about 30 J3 Cubs with two different radial engines. The engines were a Zekley and Lenape Papoose. Only one is left flying and it was a conversion back to a J3P. I believe it is in Oregon....

RE: Versapulse Transmitter Build Log

RE: Vintage Center Loaded Antennas

The ones I know of off hand are Controlaire, Orbit, Minx and Airtrol.

EDIT:

Ignore what I said, I didn't see the word RECEIVER. I assumed he mean't transmitter.

RE: RCM Issue Publication Dates

Mike, the last time I saw the first issue at Toledo, the asking price was $75.
I have all of the RCM 1960's issues here someplace, but I have hid them from myself.

RE: Vintage Center Loaded Antennas

Controlaire/World Engines had a nice center loaded antenna for 27 MHz. They will be more plentiful than any other manufacturer.

RE: Early RC?

Start a Vintage meet in CA. There is one up in Oregon IIRC. CA is a long state with a lot of people. You could have at least three fly ins in its length.

RE: Unidentified Yellow Bipe!

It looks like a Lazy Ace. However, 62" is the smallest Lazy ACE. This could be one that has been reduced. See this site:

RE: Four channel tone filter radio

I would recommend putting the on/off switch away from the throttle switches. In a pantic you may hit the wrong switch!
