Your GP should be fine. Fuel Flip and Fly!! Don't worry about the ignition

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

So, our youngest (grand daughter) it is her 4th Christmas. Tradition everybody sticks their bow on Grandpa's head. She starts with the first bow. Continues to distribute the presents about. All the gifts are gone. I'm the one opening K.C.'s gifts (our Beagle). He still has two more on the floor in front of my feet.
I ask, hey what about me? (!) Our kids look at me, Mom said not to get you guy's anything. As Arlene is showing off her ring from me.

Pro R/C came to the rescue.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

So, I was talking to this guy down at the A&W today. He mentioned how in some respects how he really likes his OS 55 gasser. He say's after a hard day at work. He can take it flying, knowing it will do as advertised. Start, fly the exact same as the last time he took it out. In his words there are engines that might have even 10% more power. But are they going to fill his need for relaxation, that he gets from his Aeroworks Biplane, and an OS 55?
How do you argue with that. I tend to agree.
