There IS a club for the full scale ones...!!!

Dear Metalbenderusn:

The PIPE Here again, with "just a quick one"...

...some of the info at http://web.mac.com/fleetclub/Fleetclub/Home.html MIGHT be of help, and I've also found and downloaded some documentation on the Kinner 125 hp radial engine most of the Fleet Model 2, 7, 10 & 16 versions used for power.

Give the "International Fleet Club" site a good look...you might like something there !!

Yours Sincerely,

The PIPE....!!

Update. Things change all the time when you're putting this stuff together. I dropped $600 and got nearly all the stuff to complete the build. The absolute first thing I bought was an engine. I was gonna get one of those kit 40cc's off Ebay, but I managed to snare a GOOD Zenoah G38 off Ebay for $101 to my door. It's now bolted to an engine test cell complete with R/C eqipment and I've ran the engine twice, it's flawless. The engine come with a Walbro WT-324 carb on the side, I put the WT-324 on the engine before I even fired it up. Hooking up linkage for R/C without a rotation carb block is HELL I tell you. I'll be ordering that carb block prior to mounting the engine on the airframe. Tomorrow weather permitting, I'll run a full tank of gas through this G38, that'll be it till it goes on the plane. I decided being retired Naval Aviation, I'd use a Navy scheme instead of Army
