Dan-O has a GP 176 (chainsaw as you call it) on cans. But he had some issues at Bawlf 2 weeks ago.
Dale... anything on mufflers is basically a chainsaw. I once had a weak moment to do mufflers and, luckily, the E.M. had an intervention session. Close call.

Your 157 I bet will come very, very close to the 170!!! That 157 is a sweet, sweet motor.

What happened to Dan-O's GP176? Did it loose a DA conrod? Sorry - uncalled for

Uncalled for, but in print. Is that what they call smooth, or sneaky?
Not sure, we need to ask him. Borrowed a set of CM6's from the cargo trailer. Flew one flight, cowl off. Then took it home. So, not sure from my point of view. We need to ask Dan-O.
Yes, I like my 3W-157. I sure won't be letting it go any time soon.

Light day at work this morning. Home early.

Bradley, nice to see a new generation of whit coming along.

Darren, parking my stool out at Bawlf. Jeff & I are going to fly up a storm of big twins.

Just read Jack's new signature.

What came to mind.
The nice voice in your transmitter.
"Wing bolts in tool box"

Wing bolts? Does that count as maintenance? Yep!

A little WC bird mentioned there been a couple significant loses within the "I don't need no stinking telemetry" faction, that were a result of dead or overflown or uncharged bats, that were totally avoidable with the simplest telem!

You can lead a Jackass to water, but you can't make him drink or use telemetry!
