Reverse threads on engine cooling fan hubs......all you had to do was call. I figure I'm going with my axi.......should be good for around 30 to 32 oz's of thrust with an 8x4 on it plus a big yellow spinner to hide the front.......I don't feel like carving a nose cowl for it. And yes the whit stuff is Cell foam, great stuff and tuff. Oh and the spark plugs sound like a warranty issue.......hehe


I can't wait to see what you got in mind next.

Best of all I had my 30", now 4oz all up ewo extra out with the Horizon Cyclone 16 gram BL on it. I had the intress of world champ Jason Shulman cause of the size and weight. So I let him put it thru its paces. Yep ewo Jason loved your Extra. I could not beleive how super it flew in his hands. He did everything with it that he was doing with the 1/3 Yak he was flying. In his words he loved it.
But then, We knew he would..........
Im dressing up the plans this week. will repost them later in the week if all goes well.

This Jason Shulman,? Pretty ok flyer huh???

The name comes from r/c racing. I ran oval for a long time but when I started running touring car all the road course guy's use to call me that oval guy. So I took the name.

Yea, I've met so many guys through here... The War Department gets a real funny look when I say I 'know' someone through the internet... She was really nervous about meeting up with some guy from New Orleans! Turned out a great time! And Mr Weber was more than hospitable!
