But when there is more space for your contact info than space to tell 'em what the issues are, I expected some sort of contact.

Send it to you Jack, Ha! Now that's funny! I probably get stuck with that shipping bill, and you'd want .......
You can call them, email them. They are very obliging and would've answered all your questions pertaining to your engine. You could've then asked for an estimate. For the most part people send them to be repaired....perhaps they should've called...but they didn't....

Nope, let me know the DA repair costs plus all shipping costs! I'll let you know!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Your right Jack, I'm old and should have known better. DA's web site sucks, I didn't find any policy on how their warrantee policy works. Further more you'd think there would be a better way to let people know of warrantee issues than FG, RCU, RCC ...

I'm not a member of the RCC Internal swap meet, I won't be selling anyone anything. Weren't ya paying attention when I stated SK was a Black Hole? Once it's here it can never escape.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Everyone done yet?

Time for a fuel cell in SukTwo. I have a juice bottle built 1.36L Same as I used in Sukhoi #1. Was thinking of 2 X 750ml pop bottles. Series, or parallel?

Any input, all welcome.

Perhaps a bad deal, as we don't know what you originally paid for the P.O.S..

Can you sell another bushel or two of canary seed?

I'm willing to be the first to dive into the black hole and pull something out Brent!!!
