Done!


Humpty dumpy is back together. I installed the motor and electronics this morning. I rechecked balance and it is about where it was before. I also added a black strip to the Right N strut like I did on the other one (and shorted the length of the strip so it is not quite so visible). The propeller should be here sometime Monday. I decided to leave the wheel pants off for now. One of them needs serious work if not replacing.

I had a stuck valve on the motor but not surprised. It sat for two years in a box with broken stuff. I pulled the covers and added the marvel mystery oil to them. I also added some to the cylinder. It will soak for a few days.

I will charge the battery and run the motor. After a tank I will adjust the valves. Hopefully I can fly it soon. I may put skis in it .

Let’s hope my repairs hold (that would suck)

I purchased an Arrowmaster off a fellow but it doesn't have the prints with it. Putting a Evolution 15cc gas in it but wondering what the up/down thrust is on it. Anyone help?

I would appreciate that; actually it's built but when I checked everything the thrust line was 4 degrees downthrust. This just seems to be excessive.

I pulled out the plans and protractor. I measured 3 down and 3 right. The plans say 2.5 down and and 2.5 right in the margin. It is spot on for my Saito FA115

I hope that helps you out.

It occurs to me in your rebuild you might want to consider a Smith Miniplane(SIG) cowl. It's just about a perfect fit to the firewall. When I get mine finished I'll post a photo. Really looks nice!
