I think you are right CK1. Crappy fuel was also my doubt but I couldn't really figure out how to improve it. 35:1 oil ratio seems fine to me and the premium gasoline down here is supposed to be 98...

Actually the porcelain isolator of all the plugs that I replaced was dark brown. Even after I set it leaner, the colour didn't change much but I personally can't see some extra fuel destroy the plug...

Hi bkanter3,

We forgot to say that the way a model airplane flies is a very subjective thing. We have a couple of buddies down here who could fly a rock as well as a trainer with the same ease. Although you have...

For some reasons, probably to get off the pack, I ended up in mounting a XM6360DA-10 on my Mythos-S 2m. The motor is really powerful but I had to reduce the throttle EPA (75%) not to burn it on a...

Thanks a lot for the hint, I am going to check the servo extension too. I have already tried another receiver without succeeding and that is why I thought that it could be the TX. In another plane I...

Hi Mike,
yeah, it actually looks like a Quadra 50some. But what I'd like to say here is that the propeller and spinner choice does not depend on the engine only. You have to consider the aerodynamic...

RE: A stubborn DLA 56

So it is likely the reeds because two of them don't really lay flat on the block, very close but not touching. Do I have to replace them or is there a way to fix the thing? And, if I have to replace...
