RE: Thunder Tiger GP-07

Wow, almost an 8 year bump ... I haven't even run my GP-07 for a couple of years!  Glad to hear that my fix helped somebody out.  Happy flying!

RE: Fuel Tank Setup

You don't plug either line.  The top and bottom lines are necessary for when you fly inverted.  Air that enters the tank to replace the fuel that is used up takes the path of least resistance, which...

RE: Koverall Question

One other caution: Do some research into the Rustoleum. I have used Rustoleum colors from spray cans over Monokote with good results, but from what I hear the clear is NOT fuelproof like the colors...

RE: Koverall Question

I agree with Gene.  Stix-it is the way to go.  I've used both as well.

RE: 1/2A brodak 3/8 oz tank problem, will not feed

The top  vent has tubing that runs down to the bottom of the tank, and the lower vent has tubing that runs to the top of the tank.  If fuel comes out of the upper vent while you choke the engine, it...

RE: Manwin trainer

I didn't even know what the Man-Win Trainer was until I googled it.  It turns out I have one!  My brother made it and gave it to me, so I didn't know what it's called.

Anyway, I launch mine like...

RE: Brodak CLP-16 F82 Twin Mustang

No, it's a J3. It's not mine, but I built the second half of it ... finished a half-built kit for a fellow club member, that is. Haven't seen it since I delivered it to him [:o]

RE: Brodak CLP-16 F82 Twin Mustang

Well I'm not much of a C/L flier (mostly 1/2 A stuff, but I do have the Flite Streak ARF), but I'm in MA and wouldn't mind being a "Stooge" if you needed one from time-to-time (although time is a...

RE: Flair Puppeteer Trust Angles

Zor,

Post #8 had the answer to the original question. The rest of the thread is just general Puppeteer enjoyment.

RE: Guillow's Spitfire Build

Martyn,

This one ended in disaster before it ever got off the board. Something was wrong with my dope and/or the silkspan I used to cover the model. I set it aside to attend to some pressing...

RE: WACO YMF

I'm not buying it. Stability has more to do with the center of gravity in relation to the wing(s), high or low, and dihedral. I don't think the thrust line has anything to do with it. However the...

Which is why they say "altitude."

Pretty good, though.  Better than most I see in this forum.

Ooops, me too.  Voted for my favorite before I read the question!  Cross off one more Ultracote and add one Monokote.

RE: Best scale photo!

I agree, Hello82 is a winner.  The only thing that gave it away for me is that the bottoms of the tires aren't flattened!  The pilot looks believable to me.

RE: WACO YMF

Fishinchickens,

You need the diameter of the piston, and the length of the stroke of the piston. Both could be measured fairly easy with the cylinder head removed. The displacement= 3.142 * DIA *...
