Thanks. The plane got rave reviews at our club meeting last night (show and tell). It was displayed without the cowling to display the engine.

Hy Skypup

Nice pictures!

Have you already flown the model? How did the engine behave in the air?

Hi Finn

Sorry, model has been sitting in the shop while life got in the way. Should be flown sometime soon but my wife needs surgery and I have an upcoming wedding for my daughter. Probably won't fly until things settle down a bit.

ok all the best for your wife, hopefully she'll recover soon from the operation. And all the best for your daughter & wedding, too.

I have only realised I used oil-fuel mix that is too lean (40:1 as oppose to 20:1 - operator error) and completed the run in process with that (never ran too lean of a fuel-air mixture), but never flown, how much damage would I have caused already? Of course going forward I'll be using 20:1...
