Just wondering if you had any ideas as to what you think would make a good stand.

Tank installed, throttle control, adjustable mounts for 50cc to 100cc ect.......

What have you built and or what are your ideas?

Thanks guys,

Here you go, Rolly.

Scroll down to the one Trev built.

Give that one a try.

Your right for the main reason. It also dampens the sound so the neighbor dosen't call that idiot bylaw officer. As if there are no other respectable jobs.

I've spent most of my money and time on model airplanes, mean women, and beer. All the rest was just a waste.

Re: Gas Engine Break in Stand ?????

as mike mentioned,just break in the engine on the plane and fly it.i don,t see what the fuss is about breaking in a 2 stroke gas engine for two hours as stated by certain manufactures on a test stand.most gas two strokes can be broken in on the plane as it,s being flown.
the same thing can be said about other two gas engines ,such as weedwackers or lawnmowers and chainsaws.just run them and with proper care there shouldn,t be any issues.

life begins under 10ft and ends at ground zero.
fly it like you hate it.

Red face Re: Gas Engine Break in Stand ?????


Looks almost like 50/50 here......

Part of the reason that I want to break the engines on the bench is for the same reasons as Trevor did. Winter is here and test some exhaust / prop set ups.

I kinda just want the engines to be 100% when I start them up in the airframes in the spring. One less thing to worry about.

Not that I have a problem doing them in the airframe, I have done it that way with all my engines.

Many good points so far, cooling, safety, manual instructions........ ect....

I guess I will just wait and see what I do.........

Trevor, if you are reading this thread...... what do you think, worth it or not?

Thanks guys!!!!
