Yes, I'm sure the residue is coming from between the head and cylinder. It's not bad, just seems to be building up over time. I guess I won't worry about it as long as it does the job. Thanks

I can't verify this, but I believe my buddy when he told me that as a novice flyer, he lost his plane, so he jumped into his pick-up to see if he could retrieve it. This was a .40 size nitro powered...

Tuning a 2-stroke .46 size nitro engine

My engine runs wide open pretty well. I think it may be slightly rich as I can see a slight fuel trail as I fly by. It is very hard to start, even with my electric starter. It doesn't like to idle...

#67 Rubber Bands

Does Sig have a patent on #67 rubber bands? Why can't I find them on Amazon? I don't mind the price, but I don't want to spend $15 to ship an $8 box of rubber bands.
