Thanks Bill, that sounds alot more complicated than I thought.  Cheesy  I wish I could see one sometime.  I have read about the 2.4 setups ... but its been awhile for that stuff and I figured that weight of onboard batteries, reciever and servo isnt the way to do it.

Gonna investigate now on how cheap I can get into 2.4 .... maybeit is the thing to do .... Hmmm ... thanks for the thoughts .... mucho appreciated.

That was a different one. This one runs fine. It just refuses to restart when hot.

With Erics motors the shaft goes all the way through the back and extend as the plans show so the bearing support keeps the motor shaft from flexing during maneuvering. So with that set up it would be important that they line up true. My Turnigy motor shaft only extend out the back if I crash them nose first. Then my shafts are like magic and extend out the back like Erics

Pardon my lack of knowledge, but I've wondered ..... isn't a mechanical type throttle system spring loaded in some way? I dont want to hijack the thread, but I've got a Torpedo 35 with carb ... always wanted to put it on a bashed FS but this detail has eluded me.

Thanks .... I enjoy looking at carrier plane pics up close.

Three line systems are not spring loaded. When properly rigged, all three lines share equal tension at all times. Imagine a normal bellcrank with two lines. Hook the pushrod to the throttle instead of the elevator. Now, replace the rear line with another bellcrank, this time connected to the elevator like normal. The elevator still works independently, but when you pull both elevator lines at once, the front line retreats and the throttle pushrod moves. It works great when rigged properly, but these days you can use a 2.4 ghz radio instead. Buy a cheap pistol grip car radio, hook up a throttle servo on your plane, hold the transmitter in your free hand, and have at it! Infinitely simpler, and probably cheaper than a 3 line system as well.

I've used the Hayes tank, bone stock (except drilled out the optional spigot) and zero problems with the clunk hose being too stiff.

As for using the bronze filtering clunk...I can't see that as being a good thing for our purpose, because it will draw air when it becomes uncovered. A lot more fuel will have to be consumed to get it to shutdown, I'd expect? If you filter the fuel going into the tank, run muffler pressure, and have a good filter (crap trap), there's no reason to use the bronze filtering clunk that I can see. I would rather be inclined to use a very small clunk...such as the stock one provided.  Don't over think it, just give it a go and change it if it doesn't work for you!  Hoff Steve

Put a 11 X 3 or 4 prop on it and run it in a good 2 cycle and be done with it.

I usually mount the bellcrank inboard of the fuselage, with some kind of linkage to get to the other side of the fuselage. The linkage also allows me to match the travel needs of the carburetor because I can make the input and output sides of the linkage different lengths.

Two ounces of fuel should be enough. I carry 2 1/2 oz, and have exceeded 4 minutes low speed on occasion without running out.
