    One of my biggest regrets is that I have yet to own and fly a Comp ARF plane!

    Tuning Changes with Elevation Question

    Good info guys! I realize that experiences may vary by engine and set up but I was trying to get a feel of what to expect and I got it.

    Tuning Changes with Elevation Question

    Any guess as to how much engine tuning (I.E how far off the needles would be) would change from lets say 3000 ft. difference in elevation? I'm looking at getting back into IMAC. The contests I would be able to make are about 3000 ft. less in elevation than where I currently fly. So, are...

    Sonic Cleaning and Nail Polish?

    I got a Walbro carb for a DLE 55 from Valley View. From what I read, people had a better experience with this carb on the 50+ cc engines and it's a direct replacement for what was in there.

    New Engine Question

    Gas : oil is 40:1 Redline and I haven't checked the gap but I'm assuming it's OK. I will see about checking it. I fly it with the cowl on and I have a hole in the top of the cowl for tuning. On another note, when I click on a thread, it takes me to the beginning and not to he last post I...

    New Engine Question

    No problem guys. I was just curious what the consensus would be if I should just fly it or try a prop with less load. I have laminated Xoar 23x8 and I'm going to drill it and try it just to see what it does.
