Not sure why the website is active unless they are still in buisiness... Have to wait and see.

For a top quality 049 or 061 you can hardly go wrong with a Profi.

You fire up one of these and watch heads turn!

The following planes were found on Profili2.com. I have downloaded Isiplot to view them (.DXF's), but CAD can also be used.

There are a TON of plans of all kinds on this site so go ahead and take a look for yourself.

Here is yet another great source for plans. That is, if you are willing to pay for them.

To be fair, the product did work as advertised. Except that in some cases, the mixture would go lean at idle. The solution for that is to increase the compression by turning down the face of the plug. That's what I had to do with my own version of TD .010 throttles.

Yeah, the issue wasn't so much about the product itself as the sales pitch.
