A little tuning. Sounds better, and will nearly pull itself virtual. I'll need something different if I ever plan to hover. And no, I still haven't flown it yet. Is have to have floats for take off and landing today.

Second test (0 min 44 sec)

I've got a new concern. My throttle and elevator servos are getting soaked with exhaust residue. It doesn't seem good to me. Should I come up with done sort of fairing to block this?

Abaser yes the 1st pic is an air screw the factory setting for just about any engine is half the hole, we always tell eople never to touch the air screw unless there is a problem that nothing else solved lol but if you have to tweak it start at screwiing in the screw until it blocks half the hole. You can just use an exaust deflecter, basically a tube that just goes over the end of the muffler or run some large fuel tubing off it and run it down past the wing.

Snowman awesome looking chevy you da man

Dubro makes a nice grey down tube extension.

My plank was soaking my throttle and elevator servos... It's just painful cleaning that up.

Well it's snowning but it's not going to stick and the wind is blowing alittle too much for my leccys, and is alittle to cold for my bones.
The weatherman pushed the warm back another day.

Abaser - I have 6" wheels on my Kaget Senior. No lead though.
Cost .02 worth of wire and solder. It is a real PITA to get it out though.
Wayne Nice Wind flying 35 is a hoot
24 oz tank in a Kadet should get you about an hour or better of flight time You should FPV to different towns and back LOL
Nice fix on the radio and yes a serious PITA to get in and out.

Did you get this resolved before I chime in, I think its also a rich setting sound. and on those smaller engines .10 - .90 Especially OS's you rarely ever have to touch anything except the HSN.
I have used all OS mostly over my lifetime and its always right out of the box and into the sky for break in, of course running them on the richer side for the first few flights and maybe a click or 2 leaner after each tank full, If I've moved the air screw or LSN ever, its been after years of use and slight loss of compression.

Ok I think That catches me up for now
Can't wait to see the finished Snowman Car
