Those are rated at 135lbs holding strength each. From my days of cable tray work with Alberta Power (back then).

So, 2lbs of leadx10G's=20lbs...and 2 tie-wraps@135lbs=270lbs cinching power!!!! Even the mighty ZDZ 180 R-VJ (non champion version) can pull it off!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Plan for 2015, show more tolerance and patience! With a new pup and Tx in the house the plan will probably fall apart by noon Jan 01/15.

I need an engine for the Yak. The one that was in it (here is where I believe Brodie is incorrect, I might have a shot at the over-powered plane record 85cc plane, 120cc engine ) is now in the S-Bach. This is a first, pulling parts off a plane that could still fly.

I meant to add, all the RC stuff made in Europe is heavy, this includes Radios. The Jeti is a Porker too!
