Round Scotland in 3 mins 24 seconds

A quick video of an impromptu trip in my Zenair last weekend.

About 650 hours to build from aluminium and pop rivets, the kit costs around 14k here in the UK. It flies at about 95 MPH and has a 6 1/2 hour range (if your butt can stand it !)

Graduated oil-mixing measuring cup

I'm getting back into gas after 7 years away. Most of my workshop was lost in the Nashville flood of 2010, so I'm re-acquiring some of the tools and gadgets I used with gas engines before. One very useful tool was a clear plastic graduated cylinder (although not actually a cylinder, it was larger around at the top) with marks showing how much oil to add for various oil mixtures: 40:1, 50:1, etc. It had marks for both 1 and 2 gallons of gas. Very useful.

Does anyone know where something like this could be had? Or, what other tricks and tips do you have for easy, no-mess mixing?

Just wanted to get some advice, I am running 4cell li-ion 5600 mah pack , with dean connectors and a balance, in the past all I ever used was my duralite plus charger, Is it critical to balance these batteries, during charging? And if it is what's a good charger to charge these packs. Thanks

Any one flying a pilot yak 54 37.5 with a Da 170 ? im more into freestyle and 3D, what set up are u using? size prop headers and cans, i was talking to a fellow member and he was suggesting that the GP-176 Evo is a WAY better motor that the DA 170, any feedback on this would be appreciated, im about to dump almost 2200 on motor and headers, also in using the smart fly eq6 turbo, is it safe to use the pin flag? or just go with the switches? wiht the pinflag i cant really check my batt voltage thanks

I had some issues with the neighbors about testing engines in or outside of my shop, so i built this and thought i would share. If anyone else has the same problem and there is any interest we may build a couple more. Keep in mind this one is the prototype and i have not finished it yet, but here it is. Holes work with all common 50cc-120cc engines.

Some and most rc flyers on FG are just awesome. An example, after I posted a want ad for wings/parts for my Pilot 30% Edge 540, a fellow flyer robertlaine came forward and offered me his parts with little or no damage for shipping costs only. Not only did he and his wife spend their time getting to UPS to get estimates, they boxed up and sent me. This is a very generous of both of them!!
Being he is from Georgia, I would guess this could called "southern hospitality". Thank you both.
