RE: CRRC PRO GF50i gasoline POWER

The high speed needle in the carb is plugged probably with oil residue from the last run.

Disassemble the carb and blow through or run a very fine wire through the brass tube into the ventura of...

RE: Top Flite Cessna 182 ARF

Why couldn't the 182 be a 172. I have the perfect 172 to model. How difficult would it be to take this plane, recover and mod to be a 172 vs 182?

RE: which do you prefer tail dragger or a trike style

Trike,, Extra wheel for drag
More complex set up for steering and retract
More weight

Otherwise on the 1:1 scale I prefer trike set up on my 172.

RE: ASM Su 26M Sukhoi

I use a Saito 1.8 in my sukhoi and it is now flying great. Finally got the flat spins down.

RE: Super Cub Windshield

Ok how do you bend it. Do you form it with a blow drier. What glue to you attach so it doesn't frost up? I am making one for my 1/4 scale Sig cub.

Next time I take it out I will check the cg. Moving it to the rear makes it fly much better. It was a dog with cg at plans recommended.

But note,, I fly all my planes tail heavy so they spin...

RE: ASM Su 26M Sukhoi

Pics attached and my cg was also the 4" point. With the gas burner you might have to add some tail weight. Also consider larger wheels.

RE: ASM Su 26M Sukhoi

I would expect the OS 1.6 twin to have about the power of a OS 1.2 single cylinder and I would expect it would fly the sukhoi well.

I would recommend cool power 15 % Green for the OS and add 1...

Otherwise your engine should idle down enough to not be moving. If on paved runway you might consider wheel brakes. I have tried the tighten wheel collar...

RE: Mag. 52 4 stroke won't run where to look

I will check the valve today. But at first look it appears to be sealing but perhaps not. I run full synthetic oil to prevent carbon build up but this engine has lots of time.
