some days u are a Gator
« on: August 14, 2020, 04:25:23 PM »
some days u are the Gator and some days u are Gator Bate. after the great day we had last week we decided to go out one more time to try another new prop

  first flight ,104 MPH second flight ,blew a plug .bringing it back something didn't feel right. after pulling it apart ,the piston and sleeve was worn but in good shape .so started looking at the case and crank.something had gone through the venturi  leaving grooves in the case and on the crank . as scarce as parts are got my fingers crossed in hopes of getting something put back together by nats time

I use a Fox35 powered plane to blow the dirt off the take off strip because I'm too cheap to buy a leaf blower.

Congrats on the 104.
