Thread: OS 40 four stroke, inverted?...

Many thanks guys, as ever useful info for a relative newbie

So, without wishing to hijack this thread, am I correct in thinking that the fuel tank pipe to the carb should be at approx. the same level as the carb intake ?

I tried to fit an inverted 2 stroke OS and it kept flooding as I think the tank was too high above the carb level, I gave up and turned it upright, ran fine

Presumably if the pipe is a tad below the carb level, the engine should be able to suck in the fuel, aided of course by the pressure from the exhaust

Cheers Denis, you may well be right there, especially as I'm still a learner airframe driver.

This was a "started" kit with a lot missing, hence my home made cabane, and the main u/c is from "stock" with a home made sort of imitation air scoop box thingy to tidy it up.

The ground angle looks about right, and I plan to attach balsa fairings to the legs. I bought a pair of used spats at Barkston, guessed the size wrong and they're too small...…..spats are fine to look at but maybe not too practical anyway !

Have to wait for flight to check the efficacy of it all.

Thanks Guys for the responses, pretty much what I had decided - once the Dreamer bipe is finished this will follow and should not be too difficult to figure out..

You can't blame a guy for trying though

Thought I should give this one more try, 144 views and no comments, so has no one heard of the kit ?

Google and Outerzone have not helped

Hi everyone, I noted this in the Nationals thread but hope it will get better exposure in it's own thread

img_6194.jpg

An excellent buy at the swapmeet, however there were no plans or instructions (so what else should I expect for a fiver).....do any of you guys know the kit or can help me - so far Google has not been my friend on this, and the Bantams on Outerzone are not this one

Trial fit of wings/tailplane and my initial idea for top wing support, cut from 1/8 ply rather than bent/soldered wire.

I think cross grained balsa sheet stuck onto the uprights will stiffen them up, and then 1/4 or 5/16 balsa supports under the wing which will also locate the dowels for the rubber bands, and maybe even small front and rear ply cross pieces at the top of the uprights...what do you think ?

I suppose you could call this a vintage design, it appeared first in June 1972

Google will find you a .pdf file of the magazine article

Thanks for the advice Geoff, points duly noted..

The kit/plan says wire cabane struts and on a site somewhere someone has made them from 1/8 ally and dispensed with the interplane struts

........I'm still giving it a serious dose of looking at and may even build it with a strong cabane box and have bolt on wings

Now that Oodalally is about finished the next one on my board is this, a started project bought at a swapmeet last Spring.

There is a good build thread at forum.flitetest.com should anyone be interested and the plans are on Outerzone.

.......I will definitely need a lot more stick time before I dare to fly it, so there's no hurry with the build !

Oodalally completed at last, it will have to be stored for a while as I am still flying T Tiger Trainers towards my "A"img_6149.jpg
