As i recall, they are metric, and are 4 mm or 4.5 mm.....some odd size that will be hard to find. Sometimes the older Ace Hdwe stores have an assortment of metric bolts.

Joe, I think your clunk line connected to the muffler is blowing air bubbles right next to the carb klunk. If you want to use two klunks, use the one for fill and unfill only, plugging the line for...

RE: J. Roberts Flight Control

Hey you guys, I used to fly U/C Stunt, and some Navy Carrier, back in the late fifties and early sixties. Out of modeling for 14 years then the RC bug hit me in 1976. I stumbled across my old...

RE: Silk

We used to be able to buy silk in colors, and going WAY BACK to the late fifties, we could buy silk scarves in any color and they worked fine. But if you want colors now I think you will have to dye...

RE: Silk

Walther, I have built three of the Miss Vintage designs from RCM magazine over the past 35 years or so. Sold two and still have one, all three covered with silk. All three with red silk, the last...

RE: Silk

I use nitrate dope to adhere the silk and for the doping to fill the weave. Make sure you do not get the Non-Tautening type for this however. And be aware that you need to dope the framework, every...

RE: Silk

I've had good luck with the silk fromThai Silks (see link in earlier post above). Either the 'Paj 5mm" or the "Paj 4.5mm" work well....probably the latter for your smaller airplane. Put it on wet,...

RE: ASP 108

I agree with your comments Ed. If I remember right, I ran my 108s on 15x8 APC props and probably turned in the range of 8500 to 9000. One in a Lanier Laser 200, and one in a Goldberg Ultimate bipe,...

RE: ASP 108

Ed, I bought my first two ASP 108 Redheads from Indy RC way back when.....probably early 1990s. I ran the extra head shim and ran them on 10% fuel. With a Slimline Pitts muffler the engine would...

RE: ASP 108

I have the same engine in the same plane, although mine is less than ten pounds. It flies it very well, 15x8 APC as I recall. Your problems are apt to begin when you try to run it with a Pitts...

RE: Removable Canopy Glue

The hot water procedure I used: heat the water in a styrofoam cup, then suck the syringe full, turn the fuse upside down and start weeping the hot water along the canopy edge, so it will tend to run...

RE: Fabric covering options?

This'll date me, but you guys might like to consider old-fashioned silk and dope! Once on, it never comes loose, and can't get much more authentic on a full scale look-a-like. Takes a lot of...

RE: Removable Canopy Glue

Formula 560 can be softened and removed by applying hot water to the glue line using a syringe. I had to do this after my pilot came loose.

A second approach is double sided carpet tape. It...

RE: McCoy 35

w8ye, you are right. So I put mine in a Navy Carrier plane, with a Johnson carb on it, and let it go lean and scream, won some contests with that small Grumman Mauler! And published the design!

Great story Tom! Hi Johnson used to come to Phoenix for most of our contests, and his engines were very popular in U/control combat and rat racing. I only know of myself and a student of mine that...

RE: McCoy 35

In the early sixties I was running Johnson engines in my U/Control stunt planes, and Dick McCoy gave me a red head 35 with the plug off center, to encourage me to switch. I did build a plane for it,...

RE: My take on Thunder Tigers

I agree with NM2K, Ed. I have a TT 46 Pro that runs as well as any of the OS 45 FSRs that I have had, and I have two TT 120 engines, and two Webra 120s. I agree that the TT are somewhat stronger...

RE: SuperTigre G-90 Prop Size

Hi Dar. I have a Pitts style muffler on the ST 90, either a Slimline, or a Bisson. Might restrict the rpm slightly over the big ST muffler but I have more power than I need, flying at about 1500...

RE: SuperTigre G-90 Prop Size

I run a 14x8 APC in a Midwest CAP 232. It turns 9000 using 10% nitro. Flies the airplane very well, but I don't do 3D stuff with it. It turned 9500 with a 14x6. Handles the 14x8 well though, and...

RE: Magnum XLS .52A
