Monument???  As in just North of the Springs?  My kids are in Colorado Springs and Parker.  We do visit them.

Thanks for the responses. I have used Rustoleum up to 15% and never had a problem. I was wondering if the Rustoleuim clear would damage the decals. These are decals that came with the kit.

Hi All,

Didn't want to pirate Terry Caron's Zilch thread but was curious about Phil C's comments I saw there about Riley Wooten's Voodoo design.  I have heard comments in the past from others that some differences existed in the Voodoo as Riley and the Lubbock gang built them and the Goldberg kit.  Could you combat guys expand a bit on the differences?  Like a lot of you, I built quite a few of these from Goldberg kits when I was a teen in the early 60's.  I don't have any kit plans around but looking at the magazine plans from MAN (hope that's right) I found online sure looks like the airplanes I put together.  Of course, that WAS a long time ago and the old memory likely is not too reliable here.

Thanks in advance for any info.

After having one break and destroy a really good flying plane, I want the thing strong enough to lift my car. This is the second one. The original bellcrank I was going to use would have cast the post into the bellcrank and used bearings at either end. Unfortunately, I messed up the mix on the epoxy or perhaps it's time to replace my epoxy. The thing never really got hard enough. So it went to the side and I machined up this one. Much more standard setup with a very large bearing surface. I'll try again on the one piece deal when I figure out what went wrong with original. I still that that will work really well.

Looks like fun. I like the unscripted setup. Just talk about current topics on the board and whatever you are into at the moment. Very cool.

Way cool photos guys, thanks for sharing. Are any of those planes electric? Layingdown

No, and they are not rubber powered or Ignition either... Turn

Hey Doc!  I know what you are talking about. The Aeroshell team omits the spinner on the full scale aircraft. I'll have to ask why next time I'm up at Oshkosh. So I'm just going with the bare prop nut to capture the same effect.

Bill:  My job prospect fell through. They have a new platoon sergeant on the way here so it's time to move on. Got some ducks to get in a row first but I'll be calling Branch for a new assignment.  My wish list includes Ft Huachuca, AZ; Ft Rucker AL, and a tour with USAEUR in Germany. We'll see what I get later this summer. 

Hey Sean,
Come to Ft Huachuca...You can fly with us here inTucson on some weekends!  A year here and we'll get you in shape to beat Joe Gilbert!

Keep 'em coming. I think its a good idea to get some of the top guys on there to speak about anything CL related. We can learn a lot from them.

Your mixture sounds about right, not sure what you mean by the paraffin wax texture.   The texture should not matter because it needs to be sanded flat and smooth with 320 or finer before application of finish coats.

             First thing is that all ST spraybar assemblies aren't created equally. Is this a authentic ST needle or a generic copy claiming it's a ST? While they have good adjustment, they're not always leak proof. I've had some where I would replace the collet with a black harder fuel tubing I use for my bladders. This would provide a seal and also friction to the needle to keep it in place. ST needles have a bad habit of loosening the collet when the needle is turned and when a engine vibrates. I would be curious to hear the results if you lost the collet and installed some kind of tubing over the spraybar and onto the needle. Ken

I reinstalled the ST (?) needle with tubing in place of the collet, wired and twisted over the collet area and over the needle itself as tightly as I dared.
The needle threads are such a sloppy fit it would shock a Fox!
My jury-rig wouldn't hold setting for flying (not enough friction) but on the bench it seems to be better than with the collet, tho' certainly no better than the OS remote.

At this point, I'm still liking the remote.
