I'm one of them now.

Lol....as far as that other guy that takes years.....Hmmmmmm.....I think his shoulders are very broad and can take anything unlike others out there!! (And Dale and I won't name names)
Jack, I had a photo taken of the bottom. Showing the Buttermilk smooth oil residue after 5hrs of run time. Now to flip it over tonight clean it up real pretty.

Well boy's I'm 7 minutes short of 5 hours airtime since Wednesday. 17 of my 20 flights were all 15 minutes in the air. Seems to be a keeper.

What a great day the 4 of us had out at the Trout Farm today.

Looks great Dale, simple circles but very effective by the looks of it. Characteristics of the 170 similar to the 157?

When will the troll show?

We are getting a great collection of good looking airplanes throughout our group.
You need to come play with us more often Daryll.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Yes Dale it was indeed a great day flying. The kinda day that keeps a guy in this hobby.



The EM must be having some crappy weather lately, because some folks are wound pretty tight.
