ZDZ80B2 rotary valve positioning help please

I have damaged one of my favorite engines and needed to buy a new backplate for my 80cc boxer twin. During disassembly I inadvertantly let the rotary valve drop off. Now I am screwed, as it fits in...

RE: Using a Deans Antenna on RX

In the coil/wire build for a loaded antenna, does it matter which end of the coil is soldered to what?

RE: Diesel 4 strokes

Hobbsy and Jens: I'm not understanding something. Jens: you are talking about 16:1 to 22:1 range on compression (including Lanova cell I think). Hobbsy: you were saying your Saito 80 is...

RE: Diesel 4 strokes

Hobbsy: Jens had mentioned earlier that he didn't think Saito was a suitable candidate for dieseling. I suspect there would be problems with the valves clearing the pistons. The Saitos have their...

ZDZ 80 twin. Can it be upgraded to 100NG?

The ZDZ 80cc twin looks identical in dimensions to the 100cc "NG" twin, except 5 ports for the 100cc engine and 3 for the 80cc engine, and increased bore. Stroke and other dimensions appear the...

RE: ZDZ-80 blue head or not?

The specs of the 100NG models show a slight increase in weight for the blue head version, I guess from the paint and the nickel plating on the case. The cost difference is slight as well, but I think...

RE: Roto 35 Gas/Oil Mix

Roto.cz recommends Motul. I wasn't familiar with it, but have been using it in all my gas engines and so far am very pleased. Going 50:1 in ZDZ engine, and 40:1 in the big RCS/Moki four-stroke...

RE: Infrared Thermometer Great for Radials!

There's another infared thremometer/probe out there that's much cheaper than the Raytek units. It's used by the nitro car guys and only costs about $25. Not as good - or at least not as easy to use -...

RE: NEGATIVE FEEDBACK: Northeast Sailplane Products

Very sorry to say I too have had nothing but grief from NESail. Had an order go sour a few years ago. Forgot about it. Ordered recently and was quickly reminded. They checked the stock while I was on...

RE: Cunningham's Lazy Ace

Victor273: You were asking about fabric covering. I recently finished a 96" Super Lazy Ace with the Stits system of covering and can say it is definitely heavier than Monocote, which the late Mr....

RE: All Time Favorite Engine

In 1959 it was the Johnson .32, just simply tremendous power compared to the McKoy .35 redhead which was the standard in my C/L crowd.
Now its the Moki/RCS 215cc gas radial. Bought it 2 1/2 years...

servo arm/wheel post compatibility

Mike:

Aftermarket servo arms and wheels from Hangar 9, for example, have two versions: one to fit the posts on JR and Airtronics, and another for Futaba. Does either of these match the posts for...

RE: looking for lazy ace by cunningham

Clarification. I can't speak for any of the smaller kits and short kits, but the larger ones have provision for semi-symmetrical airfoil, should you choose to build that way. That cross-section is...

RE: looking for lazy ace by cunningham

Mr. Cunningham told me he does not make the Lazy Ace kits or the "short kits" any more; this was two years ago when I bought plans for mine. I'm sure if you write or call he would still supply plans...

RE: Silk covering use - old covering brittle

When the paint on silk or Dacron (Sig Kover-all or Stits) becomes brittle, there are some products made specifically to re-juvenate the dope. aircraftspruce.com that supplies full-size plane folks...

RE: Cunningham's Lazy Ace photos

OK, I think I've got it. Here's a picture of the new Super Lazy Ace, started actually two years ago (long story, including a household move). This sure took a lot of lumber! -Mike

BV-138 Triplane Seaplane German/Nazi Amphibian

Yeah the Ekranoplan would make an interesting and loud model with - say - eight RAM750 turbines, but I'll bet not much fun to fly. I suspect you would be on the beach on the other side of the lake in...
