Put my receiver and esc in a plastic jar, filled with the stuff. let them sit overnight. Let them drip-dry over the open jar for a day or so.
Perfect....thanks!

Rubber band replacement. Found some small ss extension springs at a local hardware store. Used some magnet wire to lengthen. No more worry of rubber band breaking.

Thanks HuskyDude!

I hope she fits in the cowl, as per Paul's tips I'm going to epoxy it into the cowl and not use the mounting bolts.

Paul, did you have any clearance or did it pretty much go right to the motor mount after you silicone it in?

Beautiful video.

What camera are you using.

You make me want to buy a Dynam Turbojet.

Your Beaver paint job is terrific!

Thanks,
Tom

Thanks guys. The camera is a Mobius. I simply tape it to the plane with vinyl electrical tape.
