I assume this is a typo:
…the fuel I am using is 30% Nitro, 25% castor oil, and the rest is synthetic oil..
And what you meant to say was:

I know mine doesn't. It is powered with an old and tired OS .10 and likes to fly low and slow in dead calm air. :)

RE: SMALL Steps 2013: May 30-June 2 at Wrightsville, Arkansas

I believe this justifies making an exception to the “No prune pickers allowed” rule and vote to make Steve an honorary member of our Southern Cuisine club.:)

RE: New Stik plane.

Nice job! That telemaster is for sure a stik now and will no doubt fly like one.

I wonder how many remember what THE original stik looked like? It was published in a 1966 issue of Grid Leaks. ...

RE: Getting back in the 1/2a game (cloud ranger)

Excellent film!
There is a tool that is being used at 9:41 that I don’t recognize. Anyone know what it is/or is called?
I have lived in Southern Louisiana for the past 35 years and think I...

RE: In 2013 I resolve to.........

Hi DB, good to see you are getting back into 1/2A R/C. Long time no-see.

RE: .010 fun and games

I thought they were fictional also but Steve Adam's throttles are/were very real. Could it be one of his?

Hi Digger, long time no see. When was this? Maybe ten years ago?

RE: Any of the Carolina 1/2a Crew left out there?

Brian, time flies. Hard to believe your two small sons that we met back in Dec 2007 are now young men!
Even then they were enthusiasts. Well done!

RE: Glow plug life?

Steve, I believe you meant to say add 1.75 oz castor to a pint (16oz) or 3.5 oz to a quart.

RE: Backplate pressure question

Toad,
I believe this answers my earlier question if you are using a check valve or not, (obviously not).
I was hoping (fishing?) for clarification of the generic term ‘backplate pressure’. ...

RE: 50th Anniversary Flight - Pageboy

Congrats that's a nice looking Pageboy. What is the AUW? My R/O with rather dated radio is 4.2 oz and flys like a scalded cat.

RE: Low cost RC foam airplane

Rog, some years ago my son did the same with one of those foamy gliders except with a .09 Medallion. His only concession to strength was a length of strapping tape span wise both top and bottom of...

RE: Minnie Mambo

Gene that is really nice work on the Mambo. I like the color scheme.
I see that you are using the Ace Commander and (I presume) the double ended superhet receiver (with maybe an Adams actuator?).

Hi CP, that’s a neat video, looks like lotsa fun.

PS It may not be raining, but all those clouds are not exactly what I would call ‘blue skies’ either.

RE: Cox .074

Another bit of Queen Bee trivia. My son had one with all the usual noted characteristics and in addition was also a real bear to hand start. It came new with an atrocious amount of ball joint slop. I...

RE: 100 MPH GLH ASP .12...???

CP that pressure fitting has bothered me too, (as to how you did it). Let me guess, did you drill thru the lug with the tap drill; tap it and then plug the bottom? I can’t feature a bottoming tap...

RE: Oops!

If you want to really see your mates eyes pop out, put the .010 in a rudder only pageboy. Set the incidence and thrust line just as Ken Willard shows on the plans. It was too hot to fly with the R/C...

RE: 100 MPH GLH ASP .12...???

CP, thanks for your response. I’m sure you are in the ball park; at least it’s a much more informed estimate than I could come up with. Now that I think about it, the .010’s could peg out my...

RE: 100 MPH GLH ASP .12...???

CP, a more serious comment and a question if you don’t mind.
Four minutes sounds like plenty at the speeds you fly. After 90 seconds of hanging on to the tail of my .010 Mustang I was happy for...
