I am shipping them in our HAZMAT tricon.

Excellent.  It's good that they've provided you with a way to get them there.

Have fun in the heat -- I worked at FLIR Systems up to the early 2000's, where Saudi runways taught us some lessons in thermal management.  It can get brutal, particularly when your equipment is painted black, and hanging off the bottom of a helicopter, right over black pavement, in the middle of the day.  Thankfully it was a mostly a spectator sport for me -- I was designing software and systems architectures.  It was the mechanical guys who got to take the brunt of the effort -- I just got to make suggestions about how to make boards use less power, or justify why they couldn't.

Think ahead about how you'll get batteries.  I don't know how they're going to get you there, or if military aviation hyperventilates about LiPo's the way that civilian aviation does, so it may be good to check.

I'd be inclined to take a bag of connectors and a soldering iron with me, and, if necessary, obtain batteries there.

I guess I can't say have fun on your deployment -- but, all the best.

as we have told you,k and you have read, there are other sources for Dope Charles


Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I know of other sources/brands of dope and have experienced them. I consider Sig the one I personally, IMHO, find the most user friendly. At least for uses anyway.

That's why I use Sig and will continue to use Sig until something comes along that isn't dope. Which was my reference actually, to get away from not having to use dope at all.

I read someplace, I believe, that Minwax Polycrylic was used to fill weave? I've used it on solids only with good results but never to fill weave. The ARGO fuselage, for an example has, Minwax Polycrylic on it.

     Hi Randy:

     Thanks for the reply.

     I placed the engine on a test stand after cleaning the mess out of it.  After a small prime and a small choke, it started on the first flip.  In the instructions, it is sated to use a 10x6 prop and about 28% of CASTOR OIL.  I guess that the castor is supposed to protect the bushing and rod better than a blend of oils. This was probably the thinking in 1977.  However, things may have changed a bit as many people have changed to a 50-50 oil mix and have not noticed any problems with their engines.  For me, I am a bit concerned that all castor oil and a ring may not be the best mix for lubrication.  Many of my friends have stopped using all castor in their engines and are happy.

                                                                                                            Be well,

                                                                                                            Frank McCune

I used 28% oil  50% synthetic
