    You still can't see where the fuel inlet is, those tricks only work if you know where the hole needs to be beforehand ;)

    Thanks for that I think I will buy one and stick It on the rudder of my new 3D plane, and see how it does. Thanks again.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    Found one on ebay but the dude wants too much for it IMO and too much for shipping. I was able to order one through a local tool supplier (Tanger mall "Direct tools") who just happened to have one but I found out about it through Fastenal who referred me to them. Fastenal said they no longer carry it. Did you try Grainger? In my search for this thing I looked at a bunch of hobby shops online too and some seemed promising that they may just have one sitting on the shelf. You will need to actually call them. I have several rotary tools and it will fit the older model 395 type 3 and 400 rotary tools.

    Only a little bit of work on the 115 this weekend, I fitted blind nuts to the back of the firewall (makes removing the engine SO easy when building the airplane (since the engine goes on and comes off 10 times during the whole assembly)) and bolted the cuffs and wheel pants on.

    I like to use blind nuts on my firewalls, backed up with a locknut, as it essentially prevents the bolt from ever loosening.

    The cuffs and pants were bolted in place using 4-40 bolts and bonded washers.

    Received more building supplies the other day so this week I'll work on gluing the control horns in place, and pending the arrival of my extensions on Thursday, I'll also work on installing the rudder servos.

    I'll also likely work on installing the throttle and choke servos too.

    Looking at the pictures the one with carburetor coming through the firewall. Will be left just like that or will you do something to stop the carburetor from spitting fuel into the fuselage.

  9. I could be sarcastic and say that a well tuned engine does not spit back, but I won't.

    I have a Da and it is not bad but I have 3W I don’t care hoe tunes it spits fuel all the lime and quite a bit, ever since then I hav always done something about it. I was just wondering with the ZDZ engines it has rotary plate as an intake control, now that setup does not spit fuel back.
