They withdrew their bid angry. Now sold my Boddington Bi stormer to a lovely chap from Devizes.

Truly, some buyers just don’t read the description! I had one asking would I put the plane in the post when it clearly states buyer collect. Another seller pulled out as they didn’t realise that Cornwall to London is quite a distance embarrassed

HK search engine is appalling. When you look for a prop, none appears. Put in the prop size and there it is. I now will buy from model shops with a good site . RCWorld is excellent for price and follow up customer service. Al’s Hobbies gives great personal service....something more valuable than cheap,cheap,cheap.

Hello Ian,

I don't recall seeing but what's going to be the motive power for this awesome aircraft?

Tell me it’s going to be a nice petrol flat twin/ four or similar!

When i was a lad there was a private zoo near Padstow. Odd to hear African sounds at night in Cornwall ! The emu used to get out now and again.

Now that the RCGF engine is on song and running’s time to put it back into the airframe.

Won’t be doing much now until Sunday at the earliest ....Mrs Cymaz has a small heart op at St Bart’s in London. It’s a bit of a trek up from a Bodmin so she will need TLC,hot tea and sympathy.

Thread: Carb Problems
11/12/2018 05:15:24

Ran the engine again on Monday evening after work. I have turned the carb 180* to where the final position would be for fitting into the airframe and added an inlet extension. So I was keen to see if the engine would still run, and it still does!

Leaned out the carb a little more. As a result it’s running smoother and the throttle response is very good......the Walbro carb doing its duty.

Thread: Carb Problems

Just ran up the engine again. It’s had new bearings, Walbro  carb swapped from the old Hi-Lo, reed block, gaskets. It started but ran really rough and wouldn’t pick up at all.

What to do? Just as well I bought a new ignition box from Just Engines. Swapped out the old one and wired in the Rcexl unit........different engine altogether! Smooth idle, clean acceleration from idle to WOT.


So the conclusion is that it was the ignition box all along. Although the rest of the work done and new parts put on the engine will not do any harm and may stop any potential problems for a while yet.

Time to fit it into the Dragon Lady.......clock

Thread: Solving CDI interference

Now with the correct plug cap fitting the correctly sized plug it’s a sweet engine. Runs smoother, less mess. Seriously happy Cymazparty.

The old cap was not sitting right over the hex on the plug. Therefore, a small arc was created intermittently and so creating the interference. Now the plug sits and completely covers the hex.

Try this, there are others on the site. RCME did a series on flying basic aerobatic maneuvers several years back. The trouble is you need someone to spot for you and teach you when to add throttle, rudder correction etc. Its not easy to learn on your own.

Nigel, have you tried undoing the grub screw on the throttle arm body and moving that around for adjustment?
