Not a lot going on with the forum at the mo so all the projects must be getting finished as the weather is so bad any updates Question

Repaired the prop stud on the zenoah so the geebee is now ready for balancing....

Sold the GT9 petrol from the TANGO because it was S*&T so waiting for a OS 55AX to arrive and got to fit that...

And cancelled the stick kit that i had ordered as i was offered a big noisy P-47 THUNDERBOLT and just couldn't resist it so just got to fit a reciever to that and its ready to go .. again... Glee

so much for sticking to petrol the OPTIFUEL is on its way Bunch

Thought I would wake up an old thread.....

As the field is sooooo soft in the middle (no good for jets or my poor, heavy landings) I have dragged the old Uno Wot out of the garage loft to repair the damage caused by Ray's Wot 4 trying to mount it in flight! Once i've done that (should be done tonight) I might complete the recovering job that I started about 9 years ago, on my Art Chester's Jeep........
http://www.daisey-designs.com/nx13688/jeep/jeep.htm ............ so that I have a variety of models to fly during the winter.

Anyone else doing a build or refurb??

I've got the last bits to do on the SBach with OS GT33, mainly install batts and balance, will prob start my lil Sebart Sbach 30 size leccy, still to sort busted tail plane on giant Wot4 (Must remember not to run 30cc engines at full bore next time!) maybe get the Bullet slope soarer sticky taped together after that.....

Oh, and got to squeeze xmas in as well!! lol!

Moki 1.35.........Very powerfull!! Shocked

Just don't run it on high nitro and/or purely synthetic fuel Sad

I got given a 2.10 that had been run on Synthetic only fuel and seized up. After a strip down, the bore was re-honed and a new rind fitted. I found it loved Southern Models Double Lube 5%
Which was 9% synthetic and 9% castor with 5% nitro

I don't fancy your chances in that Daron, at the banger racing circuit. However, as it runs on butane, not too many people will choose to crash into you!
