Any advice as to needle access once mounted on the aircraft? Seems like the needles are going to be hidden behind the firewall on most installations. I imagine you'd drill an access hole in your...

My Forums is still broken. The site doesn't recognize when I am signed in. The new format and colors are dreadful. Right now, all I have to say is this: RCU is a free forum and it's definitely...

RE: Commander 50 for sport flying

Looks good. I understand the incidence on the wing and (maybe) the tail are adjustable. Do you see a need to use that feature yet?

RE: what size tires on 73

My 17# 50CC plane came with 3.5" wheels. You could probably go to 3" unless your field is rough as stated in the previous post.

RE: Super Digi Pulse Jumper Question

You can do it outside the box by wiring two plugs in parallel. Black to black, red to red. This requires that you have a couple spare plugs with pigtails or at least a couple plugs that you can cut...

RE: HAVE YOU USED ULTRCOTE LITE????

I've used Ultracote Lite and it works well. Dust the sticky side of the Solite with baby powder or talc and it is a lot easier to handle. Sticks just as well when heat is applied. Smells...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

+1 on this. I tried to use the jigs for about 30 minutes before deciding that skinny jigs built out of warped plywood were basically unusable. Got a bunch of towels to prop the wing up on and kept...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

I built a mount that slides in on the existing tank floor. It fits in a small hardwood "wicket" I glued on the front of the floor and then I put a lip on the back of the mount with a couple screws...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Thanks for the link to the pictures and the shim tip. Looking at mine, I've still got a ways to go on the ribs, but the shim may be a must-have also. Thanks.

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Hey guys,
I've been installing the retracts in mine. I'm using the Robarts that are designed for this plane. It looks like I'm going to have to remove a lot of rib area for the leg to retract...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

RE: DuBro Vibration Mount

Too late now, but is a cowl ring available for this mount? This would keep your gyrations within reason.

RE: DuBro Vibration Mount

I mounted an OS 91FX using these mounts many moons ago. I used Sig castor oil as lube and otherwise followed the directions. I had the engine solid mounted prior to using the Dubro mount. ...

RE: CellPro 10S Charging

Afraid so. The 10S can charge through the balance leads only, or through the balance leads and power leads when both are connected, but not through the power leads only. Balance leads must be...

RE: Whats happened to Monocoat ?

The last two times I've used black Monocote, I had to nearly burn a hole in it with my heat gun to get it to shrink. Disappointing since it used to be great when it was called Super Monokote. Can't...
