RE: Airspeed and rpm from soundfiles?

Maybe not as fun, but if you're gonna fly the plane right at yourself anyway, couldn't you just use one of those radar (i think) guns that little league coaches use to record the speed of baseball...

RE: 1st C/L flight in 40 yrs!

I enjoy 1/2a control line. I've been using 42' lines. I use spiderwire instead of dacron. I found that some of the line marketed for 1/2a is too stretchy for my taste.

If your plane is agile...

RE: fuel bottle/syringe

I use a syringe from a farm supply store. Don't know if the plunger is rbber or synthetic, but so far no problems. I do oil it castor from time to time to keep it moving freely. I've heard the...

RE: Drone glow head drawings

I once took some denatured alcohol (which I understand is mostly ethanol), mixed in some castor and put it in a Cox reedy. It ran OK, but I never really tested power or fuel consumtion. Ethanol is...

RE: Carl Goldberg's 1/2A C/L's

I bought a Bradak kit of the Goldberg Lil Wizard a few weeks ago. The nose has been redesigned to accomodate beam mount engines like a TD or Norvel. No plastic engine mount here. The engine...

RE: Why is there no U/C in the review section?

Thats kind of like getting a fleeting glimpse of the ocean and sayng "that doesn't look so deep." Get out into it and find out how big it is. Until about five or so years ago I had kind of assumed...

RE: 1st post! twin .49s?

I haven't posted on here in a long time. I'm a CL guy who flies 1/2a planes. I'll try to attach a picture of a Cox cylinder that came from the factory with a throttle ring. You'll notice that the...

I really like the braided versions of Spiderwire better. Knots are important but the plane you mentioned isn't going to put a lot of stress on the knots. The palomore may be best but several good...

RE: My latest little ball of cl fun

Bear in mind that the Golden Hawk is a Musciano designed sheet wing hollow log. The only parts that need paint are balsa. I used rustoleum brushed on -- not the rattle can kind. Rustoleum is good...

RE: How to start Cox engines
