Have a safe trip an if you can please keep us abreast.

I don't know if I'm going to be able to fly this weekend, I'm going to be out at the property all weekend and the twist is down an I don't know how to fly the MX well enough to fly it out there.
I need to get a few planes in the air.

All would work on Twists of various sizes.
I think that 91fx would be beautiful in my edge. I am not gonna lie, I don't get my first paycheck till the end of this month. If for some reason it hasn't sold by then I will definatly grab it from you.

As for the prop on my twist. I think I will give the 13x4 a try. I want to have some torque so if I am fealing frisky I can work on some 3d stuff.

Garage Sale prices for sure. Good Luck.
I have two 91FX and a 46FX myself. I have a home for the 46fx and a MACs muffler for it. Not sure about the 91FX engines.

I am guessing I should glue that back together. The bench is overloaded with other folks stuff. Do you have a rough date so I dont plan anything?

I am finally making some more progress on the Corsair and I was able to fly the Twist and YAK last weekend. Nice to work on my own stuff for a week or so.

I have someone else's motor and esc on my bench though and a foamy waiting to be built.

I think the youtube reporter had alot of facts turned around.
A 60 cc plane swinging a 16 inch metal prop using a pull start.
Pull start I can see, because I've seen it , but what 60 cc engine out there be swining a 16 inch prop thats a 20 cc prop.

I agree about being careful as got 7 stiches only a few weeks ago.
Thumb is ready for full use now I just got to get time to use it.

To the untrained eye an APS prop could look like it's metal. the rest is just a really bad reporter that should find another profession.

Give it a try. I think a 14x4W is going to be better for that engine.

ack! No flying again. My wife went out of town last night with her sisters and took the munchins with her. I went to work with the other accounting students until 10:00 last night and then some of us went to the midnight showing of Super 8 (it was ok but felt pretty familiar after the other Spielberg alien movies but my professor is giving us a 3% bump on our final grades for going... why? I don't know but 3% is 3%). Anyways I didn't end up getting to bed until around 3:30 am. I had planned on flying the twist and my edge this morning but when I woke up at 9:30 it took me until 11:00 to start feeling normal after such a crazy night so I decided I'd pass on flying. It sure is nice to not have school on Friday mornings during this crazy block semester. Anyways... there you have it.
