RE: In WWII, how did they repair bullet holes and battle damage?

The SPAD XIII "Smith IV" at the Smithsonian Air and Space museum in DC has little square cloth patches with German Iron Crosses on them. Very cool. Must have a couple of dozen patches.

RC Combat bomber

I built and flew this plane several years ago. I ran across this video of the initial test flight and thought someone might be interested. The plane was built very quickly (less than a month) to take...

RE: Lets see your Biplane!!!

Here are a few short videos of the Caproni Bomber. I said I would post them if I found them:

New TT .61 pro not sucking fuel

I was hoping to fly this morning with a new engine on my old 4star 60 but nooooo! First, too much wind. Can't fix that. Second, the new engine is fuel starved. It seems like some kind of air leak....

RE: Lets see your Biplane!!!

RE: Battery Pack for 12 volt starter - not enough juice

Thanks Pete. I will have to look at the cells when I get home. I got them from one of the online battery places and they are generic looking cells with slip on cardboard covers and cost $1.97 each....

RE: TT Pro .61 idles but dies on throttle up

I think it just needed to work out the mystery oil. This morning it ran much better. It does seem to have a bit of a leak somewhere though. It is throwing a pretty good mist from somewhere and it...

RE: TT Pro .61 idles but dies on throttle up

Thanks,

I removed the tank and replaced the fuel and pressure lines but I didn't take the clunk line out and check it. It could be that. Too bad. THe tank is a pain to get out.

Proctor Nieuport 28 build-along

Hmmm. I had a link to a website that had a really nice Proctor Nieuport 28 build along on it but I have lost it. As I recall, it was a .uk site and like a British version or RCU. Anyone know the site?
