No need to do that weston have low oil fuel aready done for you see
going to try the 7% in 5nitro on next order
|Thread: Prop failure|
Going by the fact that the split has traveled throught the hub to the other side rules out the spinner as it will have sheared of at the rub point. More likely to be a split or fault in the wood near the tip which opened up under the high loading flex as you pulled up and this has split apart folloing the wood grain.
as allways with wood props they require extra vigalnce each flight due to this vunrability (laminated one are less prone) and i always loosen the prop nut up when in storage/ after the days flying as the wood hub will keep compressing if not.

|Thread: Aliphatic glues|
I use super phatic for fine joints , it penatrates a bit and tend to leave it over night ( if the joint is too tight then it won't wick in the joint), also I don't use that much so it fillets/beeds the joint as thats not doing anythig . also i find it slightly rubbery so don't use it for jobs that need sanding afterwards, I perfer it to syno as no fumes.
I use aliphatic glue for skinning/ scarf joints, sheeting etc as its stronger and sands ok
all these glue have thier best aplications they are suited to.
|Thread: OS60GT HT lead plug connection problem|
double check you are using the right plug , the plug cap takes a bit of effort to fit on properly so should be quite an effort to remove

|Thread: Warning X8R RX - do not use with CDI on IC powered 'planes|
is it only the x8r that has an issue with spark ignition ? has this issue been seen on other rx's like the x6r, r-xsr or even the RX8R , why i'm asking is I have a large dh82a 33% on a rx8r and a redundency xm+ connected which I have flown a few times with no issues, so this has got me questioning my set up?

|Thread: matt fuelproofer|
you could try oracolor 2 part paint you can get it with brushing on hardner or spay hardener and then use the flatting agent to get it mat.
or you could use car 2k paint but comes normaly for spray aplications.
as with all 2k remember to use a good mask with the correct filter.

|Thread: Taping Aileron and Elevator|
I eliminate the 'step movement' by taping both sides just remember to have the surface at full deflection required when running the tape in the internal v part, a bit fiddly but with a bit of practice very doable with the inside i tend not do the whole hing in one piece of tape on the longer surfaces
I have been useing 3M Scotch 371 CLEAR Packing Tape tear resistant and is presure sensitive so once rubed on it realy sticks, not had any problems.
blendrum tairs to easlily for me
But now have started using scotch crystal tape 600 this is good very clear and does not yellow and very good adhesion as well, get it i think you will like it see specs
