Thanks, Charlie

There was some follow-up with comments in a later issue about the article. I will look it up but I am off to bed now, it is half past 3 in the morning here and I had to go to Urgence in hospital a few hours ago, my wife became very faint all of a sudden, hart problems do run in her family, so she has to stay the night
on a baxter and cardio will be taken tomorrow. I am very worried. Feel all lost and there's nothing I can do right now. see you guys

My thoughts are with you at a difficult time, I know just how you feel, my wife had similar problems last year which thankfully turned out to be caused by a virus which cleared up. I sincerely hope it is the same for you.

I went to the hospital today to take her home. It turned out that things were not as dramatic as I feared. She has been working far too hard lately and this, combined with a low blood pressure to watch out for, resulted in her collapse. Surprisingly she did take all of this far more relaxed than I did. Of course she now realises that she must take this inherited hart risk must be taken more seriously. I believe some medication was prescribed. Our saiplane weekend with the RBW club to Cap Blanc Nez on sat/sunday goes on and I am sure that a nice beach walk from the tiny village of Escalles (at the foot of the Cap) toward Wissant will do her tremendously good.
My sincere thanks to all of you for the well wishing I received. It really did make me feel good. Thank you guys !

John, its 1 BA, and its worth pointing out here (for those that don't know) how I found that out. Go to Brian Hampton's site ( http://sceptreflight.net/Model%20Eng.../A-M%2015.html ) look up the appropriate Engine Test, and 9 times out of 10 either Peter Chinn or Ron Warring will mention the shaft thread size in their test report.

Very helpful Twin-Stack. I have the first three - would like to get a 3.5cc redhead to complete the set sometime - so have printed out the engine test reports for each engine. Always a handy reference to have tucked away with the engine. Thanks
