I received an e-mail from him tonight. The fact he wrote an e-mail is a positive sign. He sounded upbeat.
Anyone who can call Tom Russell a friend is blessed.

Or could be that there is other states that is used for registering aircraft under companies names as they can do so under fake companies with ease. It is not always for bad but to hide the real owner. There is companies that has there corporate aircraft registered and operated as another name, Walt Disney is one that comes to mind along with government owned aircraft

Is it a "Sw!tchGlo"?  I have that and it is failing.  I worked ounce with my Longjohn but now it is less than intermittent.
I will for go that and use a 1.2V 2100+mA Nystarter bat to ignite the rocket.    BOB

News / Re: U.S. aircraft cloaked in secrecy in small Texas town raises concerns

This may have to do with taxes on said planes. After hanging out at Saginaw Airport North of FW in the mid  70's and into the 80's, I learned that aircraft owners at Meacham Field would bring their planes out to hanger at Saginaw to escape property taxes in Fort Worth. They brought them out during a certain time of year when city auditors would go to Meacham Field and assay ALL planes hangared there and tax them on the value of the planes. Then, after tax season, the planes went back to being kept at Meacham. Since Onalaska is just outside Houston, but in a different county, they might be doing the same thing to avoid Houston taxes. Planes and pilots based at Onalaska would take just a few minutes to fly to Houston and pick up their owners and go to their destinations and end up back at Onalaska. But, who knows what other reasons may be involved for planes registered in Onalaska? It may be something totally different! Lane

Gas Engines / RCGF 30cc Twin Cylinder Gas Engine
« Last post by Mark Fuess on February 19, 2019, 06:19:08 am »
I bought one of these little RCGF 30cc gas engines for my Aeroworks Profile airplane. So far, it runs like a top. I'm impressed! I can usually destroy a cheap engine in one or two flights. But this RCGF engine is rock-solid. I have 7 flights on it using an under-sized prop and it just runs perfectly. Last Sunday I changed to an 18x10 prop to load the engine more and it just keeps running smooth and cool.

I started out with 87 octane gas and 20:1 oil mix to break-in the engine, then I switched to 32:1 on the fifth tank of gas and I also switched to VP110 gasoline (110 octane leaded gas). The tune didn't change one bit and it starts real easy now.

My EME 70 is still running good, and I haven't needed to tune it yet. This engine could prove to be a good investment if you don't want to pay top dollar for a DA engine.
