I saw your post- yes, the v reeds seem to work really well when made accurately. I find the engine starts easily, as well as runs well. They are challenging to make though! You have to...

Nice boat! I really wish I had video of the outboard boat running now.

I only used non spi cylinders, as at the time I thought it would be impossible to run a pipe with a spi cylinder- but Andy W...

I made the outboard myself.
If I find the pipe, I'll measure it.
Funny thing I remember is, I ran incredibly high compression heads, like you would never get away with on a plane. But perhaps it...

That's a cool setup, you sound like you know a lot about it.
I really cut loose over 15 years ago on a cox TD049 I made an outboard for, and a friend made the mini tunnel hull boat.

Firstly, listen to what Andy W says! Andy has tested a lot. You just can not value that enough.

Secondly, running a pipe is...

Hey Andy,

RE: Mini F-16 vintage project consideration

Looking nice, Rick.
Did you ever sort out your steel adapter? If you can give me exact dimensions, I could turn one up for you.

RE: Silly, Foolish Ideas...

Nitro,
I was looking at how some guys making micro electric edf have moulded depron- if I could do that and then cover it with a very thin layer of glass I could end up with something very light...

RE: It's a Boy!

Hey Jasper,
To tell you the truth, I am pretty pleased with about 16k with that prop. The thing is, that's a huge prop for a 20 .
