I figured you never even got time to fly, since you're always wrenching on Joe's planes.

I maidened my 72 today, after messing with the carb all day. It sometimes wants to die (and does) coming back to idle, but richer or leaner, doesn't make a difference. I'm gonna go back through it and re-seal all gaskets and make sure there are no leaks at all. It ran perfectly before it was crashed a month ago.

Hugocraft and Diggity helped me all day, and I want to give a shout out to them for that.

But, at least I finally got the plane in the air! Only needed a bit of left aileron trim, and its pretty well spot-on as far as trim goes. And it didn't die while flying, only when I landed and finished my roll-out.

It had been difficult to start ever since the TN huckfest, so I figured whatever problem was causing that had gotten bad enough to kill the engine in flight.

Well, I found out the pump in the carb was not pumping very well anymore - and that's what was making it difficult to start. I guess that after pumping roughly 8 gallons of fuel over the last two years the seals were not as tight as they used to be. I ordered a carb kit off amazon for $3 and installed a new pump membrain and valves and now it starts like a champ!

While I was working on the carb I found the problem that caused the dead stick 2 weeks ago. My Rcexel opto kill from ValleyView RC had failed and no longer works reliably. (I have to jiggle the wires to get it to work at all and then it only stays on for a few seconds.) So I installed an extra tech aero ibec I had in my parts box to solve that problem.

So now my 72 is ready to roll again I just need some time to go fly it! BTW Valley View replaced my opto kill for free w/o no questions asked. Pretty awesome service if you ask me. I get all my props from them too. They drill 'em for free.

quadracer,

I guess you read teookie post about his dle-30 troubles about the seals on the carb which maybe a problem on yours since it would always restart after 3-4 flips if the motor was still warm/hot but now it doesn't. I'm glad you got the maiden in before the sun went down though!

Yup, just read it a bit ago... Amazon, here I come!
Actually, I'll probably buy from TBM or something like that.

EDIT: I found this (wonder if I'll get points for this....) thread on RCU, and I did mess with this on the carb, when I was trying to get the spare engine to run... I didn't even think about it until now. The carb giving us fits is the one that was on the spare engine............ I'll swap that priming pump assembly out with the old one tomorrow night, and see what happens then. I'll bet money it isn't priming right, thus not allowing the correct amount of fuel through the needles. /fingerscrossed

Guys,

A few pieces of news:

We're beginning test flying of a new 50-60CC Scott Stoops aircraft this week. Since we typically do a really poor job of keeping secrets, you'll probably get a spy pic or two before much longer.

If you follow AJ on facebook, you can get updates about his work on the 2M Osiris. A 2M plane takes a very long time to get exactly right, so as usual no definite info on other than AJ is working and flying and will cook up something wonderful for the world.

We're in the process of lining up events for next season. We plan to make announcements about that around Thanksgiving or so.

We're also making it official that Arron Bates and Joe Smith are doing aircraft design work for us. Arron has been doing all sorts of technical stuff for 3DHS for a long time, but I think we have finally convinced him to take on a complete airframe project. We'll see. Joe you all know, and he'll be developing an airframe as well. As you know, these projects are very involved and take a long time, so we'll just say these planes are "forthcoming" and not give any schedule.

Thanks as usual to everyone, for the continued support of 3DHS, hope everyone affected by the storm is getting somewhat back to normal. The warehouse got lots of rain and some scary-looking swollen streams and rivers, but was spared the bad stuff. Some customers in NJ sent some pretty extreme looking photos, so hopefully everything is going better for them.
