RE: DA50R won't run more than 5 seconds without choke

I dismantled the carb and took the air compressor to it. Still no visible issues. I re-installed it and started the plane up, same issue.

So I forced it to run using "some" choke and cycled the...

RE: DA50R won't run more than 5 seconds without choke

I appreciate the ideas.

The engine quit running before I ever took the carb apart, so it's not from incorrect assembly (though now it may be). I also assumed kinked clunk line, which is why I...

DA50R won't run more than 5 seconds without choke

Anyone with ideas on this one?

My first gas engine, new DA50 with maybe 10 flights on it. Was running great. I posed for a pic with the plane tilted onto it's nose and next startup it wouldn't...

RE: Tumbling

I saw someone at the field do a Lomcevak, so I asked him the stick inputs and tried it with my 60.5" ultimate bipe. Come across the field about half speed and quickly threw all sticks to the upper...

RE: Perry Pump needed on O.S. 1.60 for 3D?

I have the OS 160 on a Dave Patrick Ultimate at 13 pounds. The power is marginal at this weight. It will hover okay, but don't expect it to pull you out of trouble.

Also, I set it up with the...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Okay, I'm back from my vacation. I didn't fly the plane as much as I intended mostly because my scares made me aprehensive.

I do think that the water rudder authority was quite a bit to blame...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Okay, I have several flights under the belt on the cub. It's a tad squirrely on the water. I've managed to flip it once, grab a wing twice, bump into a seawall once, and almost bite it totally a...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Fast Guy, How did you finish your floats? Did you use covering? And if so, did you do anything to the bottoms to protect against abrasion? The holes look slick.

And here are the floats all painted up. The Klasskote was nice and cured today and didn't have any problem at all with some painter's tape on it. I shot the black (it took a tiny, tiny amount of...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Okay, I'm doing it right this time. Stripped and sanded the floats back down to a fiberglass/primer combo. Then I primed with a high-build automotive primer in my ad-hoc spray booth in the garage....

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Wow.. I figured a 3-axis CNC, etc. Lots of elbow grease I imagine. They're a work of art, seriously. I don't have the patience for that much detail. I'd love to have it, but definitely not the...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

I'll have to at least try it out with the float spacing I have. If it's a problem I'll re-work the rigging later. I'll have some more pictures before the maiden, and then of course some pictures on...

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

Fast Guy, yes the floats weight 2.85 lbs together. I'm using 5/8" streamline tubing. It looks about the right size to me, perhaps just a tad larger than scale.</p>

I checked on the floats this...

How much water rudder??

RE: 1/5 Scale Clipped Wing Cub

These floats were 2.5 lbs before glassing. Once I get them primed and painted I'll let you know the finished weight.
