Never run it on the ground for 2 gallons.... You used up all its torque before you even got into the air

I must have.......because it sure didn't have any in the air. I sold it after 14 flights. Putting a da 120 on that plane was like going from a Honda civic to a corvette

Very early in this thread I made mention that there was yet one more trouble maker from the west. It took him 69 pages to join in, wow.
Not that you are a troublemaker Doug. We were just setting the tone for the "Never Ending Engine Thread". I can see this going for a while yet.

Ed, thank-you for joining our thread. Although you might be better off in the Newbee section.
I'll take a stab at trying to help you though.
For my 46% Ultimate I am trying to source yet more #105 bands. These ones are near 20yrs old. As our local supplier dropped carrying them.
Hope this helps, with your smartass question.(all a joke)
I'm home from work now, long tiring day.

Ed, I might add.
Thank-you for the compliment.
Real warm feeling, knowing that the "True" advice is sought from the west.

Brodie's an easterner on that one!
