Diggity or Hugo, do one of you have a red or black 1.75" spinner? My Velox needs one before it can fly. They don't fly well without a spinner.

Engines with less spark advance and not extremely aggressive intake/exhaust port timing have all of the "action" close enough to TDC that they will indeed run in reverse.....not as much performance in reverse of course...but it will run. Typically just getting the throttle in the "right" spot minimizes the problem.....but today I was starting with fresh radio programming.....

After the first real start, it was easy to zone in on the proper "idle" epa and then I was in fine shape for the rest of the afternoon....but that first time was interesting today...
I found that throttle didn't make a difference, but how you flipped it.
Flip it hard!

HMMM, mom:"Dan senior prom is the same week as Joe Nall which do you want to go to."
Dad:"Lori, you idiot we all know his answer is Joe Nall." Gotta love your parents.
I said:"Well, mom, dad is wrong." my answer was "**** senior prom, Joe Nall is the prom of RC."

Hmmm... Senior prom only happens once. Yea it's cheesy but you also don't get another chance to experience it. There will be plenty of other Joe Nall events.

And then there's the nookie versus RC planes argument. Priorities man... Priorities!

You can always date a girl younger than you. I had 4 proms. Albeit, I only went to one.
