Re: First SAM/Old Timer build in years..

Well, it is what I would say "finished". Radio install complete, windows glued on and balanced. I ran the Saito .30 a bit this afternoon in the garage (while it was snowing outside, lol). The Kraft radio is set up not bad.

Because I moved the servos up as far ahead as I could, I have the tank up higher than optimal position. And further back than ideal. In another old timer, I had the same situation and the engine would lean out too much when the nose pointed upwards.

Solution? Easy - I am using a Cline regulator to feed the engine, and the muffler pressure tap and a one way valve to pressurize the tank. Works very well. I wish these were still available.

Next thing will be to wait for the weather to get better, the filed to open up, and get a test flight on the aircraft.

Looks great in that "old timer" style paint scheme. Well done.
