What a blockhead

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Took my Super Sabre out to the field today for a first flight.. I had run the fan briefly in the plane at home, but, without the wing bolted on. At the field the fan lasted about .5 seconds. I guess the wing distorted the fan when I bolted it on. A lesson learned, never thought about that possibility. Luckily I have the fan that came out of my F-86 and a new rotor. I'll make sure there is proper clearance this time. Maybe somebody can learn from my blunder.

Re: What a blockhead

Interesting Bob.. I didnt have that problem. Perhaps the wing squeezed the shroud and made it oval. Or did the bolts push down on the shroud.
