RE: Inverted Saito FA120 problems

A good prime would decisively turn into a fuel glogged glow plug or even worse; a vapour lock with my inverted Fa120. How do you prime your engine? I had the same issues yesterday despite...

RE: VQ P-61 Black Widow Fatal Maiden

WOW that must have been a massive impact considering the extensive damage done to at least one of the Saito's. The Saito looks like a write off to me.

RE: Top Flite '.60 size' Mustang ARF: about the same price as the H-9, but far better?

Well, this kit comes at the right time! This .60 size ARF is in its size one of a kind as far as the 'scale-look' goes. Unfortunately the kit isn't available in Holland yet but, though I'm not a...

RE: Topflite P-47D wing shape

Hi Tadr1

Hmm, a bit hard to judge without any pictures. I built this TF kit as well and this droop after W11 seems normal to me but I'm careful with any suggestions without any pictures. The one...
