OUCH! I sure hope that mends up soon. I've taken a few whacks from props over the years. Mainly from angry little diesels which get the top of your finger because you can't get out of the way fast enough!

Rex, that looks like some serious medical attention there,  maybe it's time to revert to a pair of individual crocodile clips, so that you can remove from the rear.

Get well soon.

Yes I guess so, UHU is just the only one I've seen who explains it in their manual.
But all the 1:1 mix epoxies have something added to the hardener just to inrease volume, to make 1:1 mix possible. That *something* affects the technical properties of glue, and is propably one big reason why some glues are better than others. It seems that UHU got it right.
For best results, it's better to use good laminating epoxy and build up the viscosity with something like colloidal silica or microballoons, or chopped fibers. L

this ones a mystery . " 1965 FAI class racer by Gerry Hand of Ireland "
Must be a parrallel universe .

Bears more than a passing resemblance to Don Burkes GRMZYPH...
I don't remember where I got that photo... maybe some ACLN issue??? EDIT: Nope, it was "Classic FAI Newsletter 3"
I have another one of that model from John O'Sullivan (Irishman now in Canada), taken at 1965 Irish Nats.
I thought it resembles the 1963 Zolotoverch & Kobets model.

On Friday went over to my friend Marks' place to setup his
Abernathy Special.  He bought it when Abernathy closed the doors
some time ago.

It is powered by an Enya .40 (4 s) which has the same design flaw
as some OS Surpass engines (only worse).

The glow plug is located at the front of the cylinder head and tilts
toward the prop. I have run this engine before, but this time I
whacked myself with the prop while removing the glow igniter.

Oh well......

It will be an easy fix.. It broke nothing on the wing.

Rich, are you getting a black exhaust residue? Engine may be breaking in. Depending upon clearances, crank as well as p/l might be running in and running hot. This is happening to me with a recent Tower 40. Much to my surprise. Since I always thought ABN and ABC engines were pretty much plug and play. Half a tank run and you are good to go. This Tower has been breaking in for 20 flights plus. As it breaks in it used more fuel, has more power, and a more controllable break.
