    Not a good day but nothing was bestrode. But yes it is frustrating when it works at home get to the field and nothing works. Especially this year flying days have been scarce so wasting a day is precious this year it seams.

  2. Guess it is time to finish up the front end of the TF Giant Scale P-51 ARF....had to move the engine 3/4" forward and then that was not far enough!

    What engine you going to run? A flying bud had a DLE55 and went to a DA60 then to a DLE85! It is friggin awesome with the 85! But when I saw it fly for the first time ever it had the DLE55 and it pulled it quite nicely.

    Alright. So I got over my "frustration" hangover and dug into the pump end of the WT908 carb and pulled the rubber membrane diaphragm and installed the "other" diaphragm (Reinforced Plastic Fiber???) from the K20WAT rebuild kit. I also added a "shield" for the hole on the metering diaphragm cover. Set both needles to slightly past 1.5 turns out. Fired on choke after 3 flips and then 4 flips to a running engine.
    After warm up went 7400 rpm static. Reliable low idle to about 1300. After shut down I opened the HS needle just a tad more and restarted. Top end dropped 100 or so rpm. 0812171107-00.jpg 0812171110-00.jpg 0812171111-00.jpg If this thing :steamer:'s at the field again......:laughing:.

    Yea we had a bad evening, but we were smart enough not to fly something when you know it's not right, so that was a win in the long run! We are gonna get both of those SOB going tomorrow evening though, damnit! Lol

    After about 4 years and 11-12 gallons with my 71" slick I think my plug cap is worn out on the DLE35. Pretty dirty inside and the spring and rubber cap seem compromised. I put it back together along with a new fuel tank and it will only run at idle for a short amount of time. It could be my new pickup clunk... I blew some air into the tank through the vent line and it had to build up a fair amount of pressure before fuel came out the detached outlet line to to carb. Curious if these flow master clunks are not very efficient?

    Top is the flowmaster from eflight
    Middle is the fortitude I had previously
    Bottom is a TDRC which isn't filtered. I believe.
    Wanted a felt version so I put the flowmaster in a TDRC tank with viton line.

    Ordered a new cap and ignition.

    Might try and do a pressure test with the different clunks to see if there is a noticeable difference.

  10. That test seems like a great idea~let us know what the results are.
