RE: RCV motors.

In my experience with the 60SP and the 90SP the engines, a scoop is necessary even if the engine is not cowled (like on a test stand). Cowl or not, on a test stand or on the airplane... have...

RE: 1/8 scale functional Hamilton Standard hub for RCV SP engines.

Nickel... Post # 171 has your answer for ground clearance. 18" is probably the best choice if you have a 120SP. It's proven to have exceptional performance. If you have a 90SP, go with 16" or...

Honda Crosstour

I'm in the market for a new car. Does anyone drive the new Honda Accord Crosstour to haul around your RC Airplanes? I like Honda.

My other choice is the new Toyota Venza. There is a little...

RE: TF P-40 Build Thread

The airplane is ready for the maiden. But because of the new (now 5-month old) baby, I'm finding it hard to find time during the day to go to the field. I find myself rushing home after work to get...

RE: Starting procedure for Saito 125 w/ Cline regulator

Don,

I haven't been able to get enough free time to fly lately. When I do run the engine, I'll let you know.

But I'm sure others will share their experience with the Cline regulator.

When the carburetor arm is pushed forward, is that idle? When the carburetor arm is pulled back, is that full throttle?

I ask this very...

RE: TF P-40 Build Thread

Dear Moderator,

Can you please resize the thumbnail view of the photos I just posted (#495)? They are currently full-size thumbnails.

(and if you can, delete this post.)

Thanks,

RE: TF P-40 Build Thread

Thanks P-40 DRIVER. You've been a great help when I needed it, even from the beginning of this project years ago.

I weighed it. The final weight is... 10lb-5.75oz. I'm only 3/4oz over my...

RE: Broken Air Fill Valve

Yes, it is the older Robart valve. I bought it back when they one-way valve and the attachment for the fill chuck were two seperate pieces.

It makes sense for a rubber disc to go inside. I'll...

Broken Air Fill Valve

This one-way air fill valve has been sitting unused for a few years. Now that it's time to use it, I discover that it doesn't hold the pressure. The pressurized air that I hand pumped all the way...

How loud? Saito 125 without muffler.

This is a Saito 1.25 four-stroke engine with a flex pipe on the exhaust instead of a muffler.

Qualitatively, how loud will this setup be?

Maiden flight didn't happen last weekend, as I hoped. The plane wasn't ready.

RE: Starting procedure for Saito 125 w/ Cline regulator

GarySS... This picture may help you. I'm using a flex pipe instead of a muffler, so I had to tap a nipple on the 90-degree header. You can see the check valve in the line near the nipple/header.

Actually, the engine HAS been broken in on a test stand and the valves re-adjusted as per the instruction manual. Then I had it running on the test stand a few more hours. That was a few years ago....

RE: Starting procedure for Saito 125 w/ Cline regulator

Thanks Hobbsy. Instead of a fuel bulb (which I don't own, yet) would it be sufficient to use my fuel pump to pump air into the overflow line to pressurize the tank.

So the procedure would go...

I have a Saito 125. I broke it in on a stand, adjusted the valves and run it again on the stand. Never flown. That was a few years ago. Today... it's installed in the airplane. The fuel system...
