My UCD 60 had a Saito 1.25, no problem. You can try looping the fuel feed line up to try and stop some siphoning.

Well I'm hoping to go flying laters today though all I've got running is is my tigermoth 400. I've been so busy with the grandboys I havn't had a chance to repair my MX's motor box. I bought a 110cc mini Quad for my 12 year old grandson for 200 dollars and we spent the day working on it an riding it, Once again I was out past midnight.
I was wondering what plane that was??

I wind up setting most of my planes at the rear of the recommended range. That does not always get my flat spins as flat as I like. Some planes don't like to make really flat, tight spins. I have been successful improving flat spins with elevator -> flaperon mixes (on a switch of course).
