My plane won't fly. What's wrong? I'm experimenting with a gravity fed water cooled system.

Jake,
It's used for putting heatsinks on Transistors also and comes in a little tube! Just ask the clerk or if he don't know what you are talking about it's item Radio Shack #276-1372 ... They call it Heatsink Grease and it's $1.99.

You can also go to CompUSA and get a hold of Artic Silver, which is better than the white grease paste.

Upgrade to a washing machine motor they usually drive a water pump. Your probably not getting enough water flow!

Won't work you need a couple of the 67V batteries we used to use with the old radios and a vacumn tube or two to make her fly!

Here's a couple spare caps I have on hand you can stick across the motor terminals to cut down interference!

Actually they are surplus out of a scrapped B-29 and I used them as part of my power supply for my 700 ft. plus G Gauge RR in my backyard. They store enough power to seriously alter your outlook on life if you get across the terminals!
