Bax,
Any word on the new BLS servos that just came out. I noticed that the BLS 155 has the same specs as the older BLS 352 but a higher price, an hints on what's different?

RE: Evolution 26GX - choke operation

George,
I don't have the auto release feature on the carb, the detent ball holds the choke closed until you open it. I just flip the choke plate open and closed with my finger or you could put...

RE: Evolution 26GX - choke operation

George,
I just get rid of the return spring and install a detent ball and shaft so that it operates like all of my other gas carbs. It's a simple mod, unscrew the choke plate, pull out the shaft,...

RE: Pennzoil air cooled question

Hey Gene,
Pennzoil has changed the labels on the bottles and I'm out of town right now or I'd go check on the number for you. Just go to Advance Auto, they have the right stuff there, in 8oz and a...

RE: New SV Gassers

I actually did try that prop yesterday. turned 8000 rpm. But it did pick up some rpm's when I set the timing so 8300 isn't out of the question, plus this is a brand new engine, have run about a quart...

RE: New SV Gassers

I bought one of the SV 26 the other day from TBM. Mounted it up on a Wildhare Baby Extra, very easy with the included standoffs. At first it had a bad miss in the upper rpm range. Read this thread...

RE: if BTE Venture 60 was sold once again...would you buy it??

I would buy two if the price was reasonable. I gave my four star to a young man recently and would like to keep a plane or two around in case I run into another deserving young person.

RE: AW Ultimate 20-300

Gregman,
I briefly considered using a Saito 300 on mine as I had both the ZDZ 60 and the Saito sitting on the shelf. The Saito doesn't make quite as much power and I've always used a smaller prop...

RE: AW Ultimate 20-300

bdegan,
Your layout looks very similar to mine but I didn't have a problem with the stab tubes. As for the balance, I'm not surprised it tips easily. Just set the cg at the recommended mark and it...

RE: Evolution / MVVS 26cc GT2 Carb Choke

I have to agree with the original poster. The early choke were a PIA, the least convenient I have encountered. Yes, it is solveable, but at the price of this motor it would have been nice if...

RE: AW Ultimate 20-300

Bdegan, I'm happy for you, you've really had to be patient. I look forward to seeing yours go together.

RE: AW Ultimate 20-300

Mark,
I really wish that my hobby budget could stand that! I already bought a new 35% plane for this season plus this plane and the fund is rather depleted. I'll keep on showing this one off and if...

RE: Introducing the new 100cc Ultimate 20-300

As one of the first to get the 50cc Ultimates, let me just say: dang, I'd have held off for the 100 cc. Not saying anything against the 50cc version, but bigger is better!( but he 150 is out of my...
