RE: Our new 40 foot blimp test flight pics

just from the pic it looks like it uses a couple more channels then that... I'm guessing 5 channels mixed via a computer radio. the 4 tail surfaces are most likely independent, since they would...

RE: diesel convertions

why? especially for a ground vehicle. fuel is just as expensive or more so unless you can get it locally. rpm is lower, torque is higher. overall HP is also usually lower. they work fairly well...

RE: Stupid question

wait until your rod breaks.. running the engine above its specified rpm DOES stress the engine. it usually isn't one of those things that is all of a sudden, it is cumulative over time. one run...

RE: .21 pipe on .46 engine

RE: Saran wrapped reciver

RE: shims in engine

umm, NOOOOO!

lots of things regulate timing. think of it this way, your crank sets the timing, while plug temp and shims adjust the timing.

you contradicted yourself there also, if you...

RE: .21 pipe on .46 engine
