RE: Accelerator for Foam safe CA?

The Insta-Set brand accelerator does not attack EPS or Depron. You can just spray on a mixture of water and baking soda, which works about as good.

RE: Rounding 3D Foamy Leading Edge

Here's an approach that worked well on a friend's plane. His wing is 3mm or 1/8" thick Depron. He slit several drinking straws lengthwise, opened up the straws and slid them lengthwise over the...

RE: HELP! building GWS formosa

EPP foam is very easy to glue. This is just an idea. I haven't tried it myself. Using a sharp tool, cut the tail off. Cut in front of the fin, at the low point of the fuse, about 6.25" in front of...

RE: Adverse Yaw

If your servo is mounted on the bottom of the wing, the holes for the pushrods should be in front of the center of the servo arm. This will give you more up travel on the ailerons than down travel....

RE: Anyone with Exhila Experiance?

Sounds like your battery may not be performing at full voltage. I have heard that new batteries may need a couple of chage/discharge cycles to come up to full potential. Are you sure your battery...

OS 91

More suggestions:

This engine needs to run cool. Try using smaller props and low nitro fuel: 5% or even 0%.

Some guys say their 91s run great. The only thing I can deduce is that their engines...

Needle valve

Tower Hobbies has a Fox needle valve for $12, a Tower version and a Perry version for a few more dollars. The K&B needle valve should be available from your local hobby shop and many other online...

OS 91 FX

Blackie:

I would remove the current needle valve parts to save weight. Then install a remotely mounted needle valve, probably to the firewall. I have heard the K$B needle valve for about $15 works...

Spray gun

Harbor Freight has an HVLP gravity feed touch up gun that would probably be better than the full size gun for model applications. The HF gun is a good gun for the money. I bought an Asturo gun for...

Antenna routing

I would guess that the fuse is fiberglass. In this case, you can safely run the antenna inside the tube. I have done it. However, if it is carbon fiber, I don't think you want to run the wire inside...

Antenna

Put some talcum or baby powder on the antenna wire. You will be amazed at how easy it slides in the tube.

Or, put about a 1/2" long piece of heat shrink tubing on the end of the antenna wire. Then...

Spray gun

I've heard good reports on the Harbor Freight touch-up HVLP gravity feed gun. I think it's only about $30. Use Naptha or even laquer thinner to thin your paint. It will dry faster and give you less...

Funding for RCU

Real simple:

Part of the site must remain free to keep up the volume of page views. Without volume, the site starts to lose value and a downward spiral begins. Banner ads require page view volume...

Boiling Nylon

I have heard of guys boiling the nylon gears in their servos to toughen up the nylon. (Remove from the servos first .. ha ha.) Not sure of the physics involved. I know nylon readily absorbs water...

TOC cancelled?

I read that the sponsor of the TOC, the owner of the Circus Circus casino died. As a result the TOC competitions are history (cancelled for good). Any new word out there on this subject?

Sorry, Chuck. I meant Ultimate RC, not Radical. My mistake.

My 2 cents worth

Ultimate RC should not have strung out bocciol for two or more weeks on this one. Given the cost of this kit, they should have just sent him another one and tried to work out the problem with FedEx...

Full moving stab

I built a stickit type plane many years ago with a full rotating stab. Another pilot or two with similar planes also gave it a try. We didn't really notice much difference in performance over a...

Dave, I have admired that picture of your departed flying machine for so long. When are you going to build another one?

Flying Machine

Don Muddingham, the designer, has a web site which can lead you to a source of plans or kits. Do a search and you should be able to find it.

Fuel tanks are made from polyethylene. You can heat them up with a hot air gun, deform them to the new shape and hold them in that shape while the plastic cools. You will do no harm to the plastic...

dave brown mounts

The YS 63 is only 1.375" wide where the crank fits between the beams. There doesn't appear to be a Dave Brown mount that's right for the YS 63. The 4650 and 5060 mounts are too short. The larger...

Adjustable mount

I have had a couple of adjustable mounts and they were very heavy. Can you tell me how much the GP mount weighs? Thanks.

What engine mount for YS 63?

There doesn't seem to be a nylon engine mount that fits the YS 63. What are people using?
