RE: HOW DO I CONNECT?

The fuel valves are handy for cowled engines. I use two, one in the tank-carb line to fuel/defuel, and one in the tank vent line to route overflow back to the fuel jug during fueling.

RE: HOW DO I CONNECT?

Plug the probe into the valve and blow through the probe. The 'short end' of the probe goes in the valve, the 'long end' is where the line from the fuel jug connects.

The connector where the...

RE: (2)10-32 rudder control arms?

Ah.

Snip a very short length of flex control rod housing (the plastic stuff) and use that as an insulator. Should be as long as the metal is thick. CA in place if necessary.

RE: Scale Instrument Panles

I went through the same hassle building my Extra 230 - nothing available in the right scale, and nothing at all available for certain instruments, like the G-meter.

What I did in the end was...

RE: European builders vs. US builders

Jeff -

Thanks for all your contributions to scale modeling, and for the standards you helped set.

Indeed, work spoils a lot of fun.

RE: 40% Rudder hinge repair

File the heads off the remaining pins, and pull 'em out with needle-nosed pliers.

Find some steel wire the same diameter as the original pins, and cut some pieces half-again as long as the...

RE: (2)10-32 rudder control arms?

Two narrow cross-slices from a scrap piece of 1/8" aluminum angle ought to suffice.

Clean 'em up on a belt sander, drill the appropriate holes, and mount the things on either side of the rudder.

RE: afterrun oil

WD40 is a solvent, not a lubricant.

Don't take my word for it.

Spray a liberal dose of WD40 on a sheet of metal, and set it aside for a month or so. See what sort of lubrication remains.

RE: Airplane racks for your van?

If you'll go find the several threads about trailers you'll find a number of rack configurations amenable to vans, as a starting point.

Couple of points about racks . . .

RE: The 'New way' of onboard electronics - Please Explain

I prefer to keep the servos just the way they came out of the box, and to graft mating connectors onto the bus. Makes changing servos a lot easier, particularly if you're at the field and can't plug...

RE: L-4 Graqsshopper

BUSA have the 33% kit, but it requies some serious bashing to turn into an L-4. DAMHIKT

AFAIK no one offers a 1/3 L-4 kit these days. Plans abound, but no kits.
