RE: WATER IN GLOW FUEL

Update: I tried the sewer water and it does run better than regular tap water! I think it is the swamp gas effect (methane) that is giving me all the extra power. The only down side so far is that...

RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

RE: Composite-Arf 2.3 Construction

Looks great, for those that don't have access to spray equipment, the spray can tint will work. Pactra, Tamiya and Testors all make this product in a black and a blue tint. The car guys use it to...

RE: Composite-Arf 2.3 Construction

Hmmmmm, that is heavier than I suspected Bruce. I checked specs on the 3W75i rear valve and it is showing right at one pound heavier than the ZDZ 80 RV. If you have the side carb version, I think it...
