RE: Adelaide Aeromotive - Taipan TBR reproduction

The venturi draw tube looks huge for a diesel. Methanol huge. Somebody who owns one of these ought to experiment with restrictors.

RE: The Leastie Beastie

Sweet. I've never tried an RC project with an .010. On the other hand, some of the best fun I've had involved an .010 powered CL that launched off the big park style picnic table on the patio. ...

RE: Cox 049 RPM ???

I'd appreciate a PM too.

As for the SureStart with the restrictor ring, ditch that and try to find a RC Golden Bee cylinder, ring, and piston. I think even a fairly well used one would run...

RE: Plane wash

I've used a variety of automotive degreasers over the years. Early on I found it safer to dilute the product, wipe with a shop cloth, and then hose the remnants off with a spray of clear water as...

RE: Firing up a couple of Vintage engines

Try to get the glow plug threaded head for your Cub. Mine run very nicely with that set up. The glow head must have been a late attempt to compete with Cox for power. The Cub was never anything but...

RE: newbie question McCoy 0.049

I'd suggest you spring for a larger engine that is listed on the DDD site. It might cost about the same as anew crank, rod, piston, and contapiston fort that wew beastly. Try an OS.10 or the large...

RE: Cox .049 Clear Backplate

That doesn't look like a Cox backplate at all. Is it being advertised on fleaBay as a Cox product by somebody who knows that old Cox bits bring in good money sometimes and had only vauely heard of...

Gilbert .11

I've been messing about with a Gilbert .11 glow for almost a year now and even flown it in CL sport plane. A nice little engine even if tepid compared to a Medallion .09. What interests me most...

RE: Flooding disaster in Australia to all

We've got a collection going at my motorsports site. It's a small community but we might raise $5K. We do have a member currently living in Perth who guarantees he can find some small local...

RE: Cox Killer Bee question

I put together a faux Killer Bee with a Davis HD crank, a well used Golden Bee crankcase, the right cylinder and piston from Bernie, a Tee Dee head, and a high performance red delrin backplate. It...

RE: Building Guillows Camel

Definitely add the rudder. I did a scratch built Fokker DVIII ages ago with a PAW 149 DS that turned a wooden 9x3 (very close to scale diameter) heartily and the look, sound, and smell was very...

RE: Diesel .049

Sorry. Can't find the note in all my files. It must be somewhere. As I recall it was similar to other very small diesel mixes with nearly 50% ether. It was just a scribble by a retired hobbyshop...

RE: A couple of $5 engines

K&B MECOA is promising .09 glowheads some time in the future. Good luck and patience will tell. I love diesels I've never had any glow plug problems. ;)

RE: Diesel .049

Replace the Buton o-ring with Viton. Then up the ether content of your fuel. If somebody can share the OK diesel formula we could all be running better. DDD is just not right for my Cub D and...

RE: Cox 010 RC plane?

The most successful small planes I have built for .010 and .020 engines have been more like motorgliders than anything else. A single wheel in the fuselage and a music wire skid on the nose makes for...

RE: Black rubber/fuel/gloplugs

I like the Monoject syringes for fueling, too. I use the hypo needles with the sharp filed off because the fine spray is great for priming my diesels. I also replace the Buna O-rings with Viton...

RE: Tee Dee .05 R/C

There used to be a Cox part that could be used to eliminate SPI. Just a thick washer that fit between the crankcase and the bottom of the cylinder. I have no clue why I bought a couple of them ages...

RE: Weirdest Failure, Yet...

I stupidly broke the crank on a PAW 55 when I first started making homebrew fuel. Not enough castor and too much cetane booster. Too much prop and too much compression. Twenty plus years later and...

RE: norvel 061 spring exhaust

The original market must not have had any noise concerns... those mufflers were the cheapest and most expedient way to add a feature wanted in the West. What they really needed was a new...

RE: Decalage on Bipes

Okay. Why am I remembering "decalage" as the difference in the angle of attack of top plane and the bottom plane of a biplane? I remember building lots of bipes with the bottom plane at 0ΒΊ to the...

RE: From Lekkie to smoke, noise and fury.

I've flown a throttled PAW 80 TBR with an 8x4 prop. That was in grad school and I didn't have a tach then, but it hauled an Ace Whizard around very smartly and was very quiet with a few inches of...

RE: best battery for glow plug?

I've been using the Cox two D cell battery box since my return to 1/2A glow flying a few years ago. The only improvement I would add would be an on/off switch so I don't have to put on and remove the...

RE: Mills engine identification

I remember Royal engines they were mostly OS copies if memory serves. Never heard of them do repro engines, though.

RE: Discreet Question

I have the DDD .020 head and I do use it on my third Pee Wee. As long as I don't try to get anything more than 10K with a 6x3 it works wonderfully. Over compress or needle too lean and there goes a...
