Got tired of screwing with that stinkin Norvel exhaust so I bought an LA 15 this week. Took it to the field after doin the heat treat runs and I was getting over 17,5 on it with the 8x3. What do you do to keep the RPM down under 17,5? Probably won't have to worry in a couple runs, but it was doing g...

I flew combat the day before I got laid off. Didn't have time or money after that though I did do one demo down at the MWSC and having not played for so long, took advantage of beginners luck. Got horny again this last month, got my dagger out because the local boys still play C class at the nights ...

The only flying I've really been doing the last 2 years has been CL stunt and a little racing. However I did get to play combat in august this year and I kicked butt, up till I flew threw the other guys airplane totalling both. Only had one plane but it was fun while it lasted. Remember when Q40 mea...

I had one Irvine 25 detonate several years back thanks to a small, low pitch prop and 35% nitro, man it was screaming nasty when I launched it, but other than that, all my engines seem to be in fairly pristine shape. All tucked away in plastic ziplocks dangit! <img src="

Diesel was obsessed with engine effeciency. His designed extracted up to 90% of the thermal co-effecient mentioned in the articles, however to do so they operated at very low RPM's. He lost control of his designs and Mercedes went to higher rpm, higher performance engines. Did Diesel get upset? Man,...

Flew double elimination cl slow combat in Wichita last weekend. I don't have a plane left, it was good! But it is good that I didn't drive all the way to Wichita for just that one event. I was out of planes after the second round and that was only because my competitor in the first round didn't know...

Hate to add more weight, but if you would put some foam on the underside of the motor mounts and glue it to the firewall it should dampen out all your vibration at a minimal weight gain. Great lookin bird. Why if I had two pennys to rub together I might actually be tempted to stick something like th...
