I changed position of the camera on the fuselage so as to have a better view it's on the vertical axis and I secured with ducting tape.

After the flight I took the camera off the fuselage and a piece of monocote ripped off.
I will upload photo in the afternoon because I have the model in my car.
Can I have some juicing on my youtube post please?

better quality video(edited)


Discussing about after run oil , a guy at the field told me that he used 2 stroke motorcycle oil for after run lubrication for his 2 stroke nitro engine and I recommended him to stop using it it's wrong , nothing compares with 2 stroke motorcycle engines with 2 stroke nitro engines, different temperatures.higher temperatures in nitro engines . it's better to use ATF for after run. Any thoughts?

I bought a used OS .61 Max SF off Ebay. I have not run it yet so I do not know of the condition yet. It looks good and feels good so we will see as time passes. The last used engine I bought was a McCoy .35 Redhead for $5 in 1968. It was a GREAT running engine and I had zero problems with it. Life is good!

There are some postings about OS sleeve plating coming off. I seem to remember it being the FX model. I would look into it.
