I could not figure out why the motor wouldnt start. Not even with the Super starter that Mac made for me.

Finally I decided to pull that fuel tank out. Guy had all 3 lines mixed up. The fill line was fuel line. The vent line was the fill line. The fuel line was the vent line.

Problem 1 found.. I figured while I was there I would see what else I didnt like. Here is where Problem 2 was found. No loctite on the bolts from the firewall to the motor standoffs. Then I found problem 3. The cowl blocks were held on with CA and not epoxy.

Tomorrow I will check all the servo connections/extensions. Pushrods, control horns, etc...

Oh yeah... None of the tubing was tied to their respective connections.. I went back and tied metal wire around all of the gas tubing where it connected to copper tubing.


I wish we had a Hodges out here.. or atleast a hobby store that had nitro and gas parts.

On a different note, the base is having something called "Summer Bash" on friday. They are going to land a V-22 Osprey at the grassy park near my house. When I mean near. It is less than 1/6 mile from my house to the park. I walk my electric planes there to fly on the weekend.

I talked to my neighbor about this. He said they rope off a HUGE area during landing and take off because the wind created during these times is equal to a Cat 1 hurricane
