RE: Swap meets

Went to a large swap meet in Winston Salem, NC yesterday and saw the exact same thing. Lot of sellers, but a lot fewer buyers. From what I could see, buyers were mostly tire kicking, not seriously...

RE: Lanier Cap 232 kit

RE: 1980 TOC Laser 200 by Ulery

I have seen Dave's Laser up close-it is going to be a very sweet plane. I've already predicted that it will become his favorite every day flyer. After looking thru this thread, I've decided that I...

Focus Canopy..anybody got one??

I've got an original Focus I (NOT the Focus Sport) that has been a terrific plane. It's now my back-up, but I still fly it often. However, I dropped a jar of screws right on top of the canopy and...

RE: Watcha building this winter??

I've finished my scratch built Mustang X and have it flying. I put in an OS 55 AX in it but I may replace it with an OS 46 I have as the 55 is way more than needed. If so I'll use the 55 AX in the...

RE: Lanier 81" Cap 232 BUILD

I'd recommend that you CG the Lanier CAP about 1/2" FORWARD of the wing tube for initial flights. The plans show the CG right in the middle of the tube-this is too far aft for most pilots...

RE: Lanier 81" Cap 232

I built and flew a Lanier CAP 6-7 years ago. Like most CAP's, the Lanier CAP tends to build tail heavy. I built my CAP completely stock, according to the plans, but it came in at 17lbs, which was...

RE: Lanier Cap232 kit

I built one of these 10 years ago---I used a Brison 3.2 (52cc) engine in mine---a 50cc gas engine is ideal for this plane. There were a number of threads on RCU about this plane (5+ years...

RE: great planes giles 202 project

I built one of these 4-5 years ago. I liked the way it went together---nice building construction. I had an OS 91FS in mine. A .46 2-stroke will barely fly this plane. I know a .61 2-stroke will...

RE: Webra 1.20 ok for a U-CAN-DO 60?

I've flown a UCD for 4 years----the real joy of this plane is slow speed handling. You can do almost any manouver---totally controllable---at very slow speeds. I've flown mine with an OS 91FS and a...

RE: Profliles, which one to choose

best profile deal right now is the EF Edge---I've been flying one for 2 years. Construction is out of sight, flying characteristics are just terrific. I'm flying mine with an OS 45AX, but a YS 63...

RE: EF Edge 540T - Is $110 a good price?

I paid $149 for my EF Edge 540T two years ago. Quality of this ARF is simply best-in-class. Kit construction and covering is absolutely 1st rate. Plane flies all-world. A price of $110 is an...

RE: UCD60 / OS91FX Fuel siphoning problem

try using a Cline regulator. It pressurizes the tank, smoothes out the fuel flow to the engine (regardless of orientation), and will stop the siphoning problem. I've used 1 for 3 years on a Saito...

RE: U Can Do 3D

RE: Why only OS FS in SPA?

I asked the same question on the SPA Bulletin Board and Bruce Underwood told me that 4 strokes were favored because of reliabity and torque (prop selection). With respect to the OS, he felt the OS...
