PC says "512 MB", System Properties says "384 MB". Guess I don't qualify as a nerd.

You can be nerdy, your PC is just having a Memory identity crisis.

Anyone looking for a Twist <Yellow and Purple> in Florida?

The short on 64 bit is for me is...

If you bought a PC with a lot <4 gigs or higher> of Memory, the OS will not see or use the memory without the 64 bit OS..

If you are not using applications that support and use 64 bit, nothing is gained other then the memory access.

Some applications will flat refuse to install or run of 64 bit.

There is not Flash for 64 bit IE explorer so Vimeo, Youtube and such you have to open and use the 32 bit Internet Exploder to see some media. The 64 bit OS launches 64 bit IE by default on Vista.

64 Bit really can allow applications like AutoCad to perform very well. Like me, my AutoCad 2009 is only a 32 bit install. So, since I have all this memory, I install Microsoft Virtual PC, build a Virtual 32 bit XP service pack 3 that I can run at the same time, install Autocad and all of my 64 bit unfriendly applications and with 2 gigs of ram dedicated to the Virtual OS, I am truely using all of my 4 gigs of Ram.

64 Bit really shines in high access server application.

Sorry for the noob question but perhaps someone here can point me in the right direction. I have this mount.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD628

and this engine

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXFMD5&P=ML

What I cant find for the life of me is what kind of screws do I use to mount the engine to the mount. I looked here

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...rews&search=Go

and as you can see it kicks back every single screw imaginable and I have no idea what I should get. Some guidance would be very helpfull

Hey Tek, I used to have that setup and I just used four allen head screws and washers, Screws that are long enough to go thru the motor and mount and then used nylon locking nuts on the opposite end. Of course you have to carefully drill holes in the mount. Hardware store run is in order
You really dont need an expensive anti vibration mount for the 46 2 stroke but they are nice. I use them primarily for my 4 strokes that want to shake my planes apart

Yep, what Fixxin said. I also like to tap my mount for added protection if I can. It is really easy with the glass filed nylon mounts. I may have an extra one laying around for the Twist if you need it. No Sweat.

A trail of smoke is GOOD!

Hey Tek, I would save that for something else. Otherwise, I would drill/tap and put lock nuts or regular nuts with locktite on the other side. I think the bolts are #6 but I don't remember for sure.

I've done this on many planes. Machine screws don't back out. Never had a problem yet.

That mount has a lot of meaterial engaging the bolts. Most of the ones I see don't have that much so I use the nuts as a margin of safety.

Most of the time, I drill clearance holes and don't tap the mount. I have also seen wood screws used. I have done both the threaded mounts and bolt through. I won't do the wood screw thing though. It makes me nervous.

The motor mount broke on my TT40 on the last rough landing but all the bolts were in place.

Cool stuff

Tap the mount and use lock nuts when possible.
