Quote from: meharibear on July 22, 2020, 09:49:07 amThanks for all your interesting and amusing (Pete) comments! I shall get on with sorting out the ST and have no intention to further deplete the world's lithium supplies instead.
Quote from: itsme on July 22, 2020, 14:36:26 pmI totally agree that veggie is not the way to go with big models. However, with a third of lithium going in to batteries, there is still around 40 million tons of the stuff available. Super Tigre 3000s were good engines, but outclassed by Moki 180s, and both now pointless with the excellent petrol engines available.
Quote from: FlyinBrian on July 22, 2020, 20:12:59 pmI reserve judgement on glow v petrol. I prefer the sound of a decent four stroke glow engine to all petrol engines running without a canister or other decent exhaust.OTOH I have recently obtained a Boeing Stearman Bipe of around 6 foot span fitted with an OS 40cc petrol FS, this uses what looks like a large glow motor exhaust and in a video sounds great - will be giving it a test in the garden soon. Along with the ASP 120 I have refurbed, of course I need to find the so..ing wood-ruff key for the prop driver which crept off when I was not looking.
Quote from: itsme on July 23, 2020, 08:14:30 amI have an OS40cc FS petrol. Loads of power, bit noisier than I expected, starting was my problem, fitted inverted it kept chucking the prop loose. Now I open throttle wide with no ignition on, use my geared starter to run it a couple of seconds, then low idle and ign on and it starts easy. Use a nice heavy glas filled prop, when new they need that weight to keep a good idle.

Quote from: paulinfrance on July 23, 2020, 12:27:38 pmYou can pick these up for around 50€ and work well on 3S, As for running, the engine throttle open to clear it, until you forget the ignition switch and it takes your fingers off,,
Quote from: PDR on July 23, 2020, 12:57:08 pmNo point - you clearly know even less about electrics than you do about everything else. Not really interested in the opinion of someone who can't remember how to spell PDR.I can see why you moved to France. A mate of mine had half a mind to move to a job in the Dodogne, but turned out that in having half a mind he was hopelessly overqualified. PDR
Quote from: FlyinBrian on July 23, 2020, 12:04:40 pmItsme, What starter are you using please. Re prop, it had an 18 x 8 wood prop which seems small???I will be fitting a GF filled prop but do I stick with 18 x 8 or can it handle say 20 x 10 like my MVVS 40cc (on a tuned pipe)TaBrian
Quote from: NickK on July 23, 2020, 21:51:43 pmPs, I fitted choke leavers on all of mine.What did you do for a choke then after that
Quote from: paulinfrance on July 23, 2020, 15:25:20 pmI back flip my four strokes after doing the same till methanol comes out of the carb and back flip with a wooden spoon, "but" luckily Tuesday I held the prop on my old OS 80, I mixed up the ignition ( glow ) switch on the radio, as it hasn't flow for 2 years and it was 'live',, still got all of my fingers.Yes I paid 46€ with the big cone, 3 in the club and 2 on 3s for 20/30cc petrol and one for a 55cc the third on the old 12v 7amp lead battery.With my shoulders no way could I swing a prop on a petrol.Ps, I fitted choke levers on all of mine.PPs that's, Do*dogne,, it's where Brits go and buy a heap of rubble for £300.000 and drink themselves to death on red wine.
Quote from: FlyinBrian on July 24, 2020, 06:17:00 amI know where the DorDogne is just wondered if there was a similar sounding place that I did not know about - where is the evil grin smiley?
Quote from: meharibear on August 23, 2020, 14:27:37 pmThanks, I got a replacement needle from eBay. I had considered the gasoline/petrol conversion but I am told by others that the big end beating isn't up to it. Anyone know if that is true?
