nice sound from my revived engine

last night spooled her up..on the header tank fuel only....ran her rich...and the sound from the muffler was sweet...a low purring sound....no longer the high pitch sound like it was dying....the silicon high Temp RTV does wonder..no more oily leaks..and muffler is completely sealed...actually i was thinking of getting another muffler...but only when i upgrade to a R50 size heli.....i just had to run the engine last night as i was worried about the rust which i see forming when i disassembled the engine.....so that at least the engine is well oiled after i ran her....

last night sprayed painted my tail blades to Fluor Yellow also....and looks bright...next part i will spray will be the tail fins....then my heli will look nice.....tomorrow going to retune her engine ..and do some hovering to test the power....

My items from Toyeast has been shipped....hopefully again..friday i get it....yipee....next thing i need to do is to RTV my car's muffler to the engine...so that i do not see leaky oily surfaces on my Nitro Car.

oh my... the ultimate wall paper...lol

from the ppl @hwz again!!!..Those ppl are pro man...i can say..photoshopping skills are the best.....

Puncuations pls....

Puncuations...spaces...commas..etc...well its important...look at this example...was reading the newpaper online and came across this.. "sexeperience"..i was like "hur".....



an interesting article also..
A COUPLE drove down a country road for several kilometres, not saying a word.

An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede his or her position.

As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically: 'Relatives of yours?'

'Yep,' the wife replied. 'In-laws.'

Not to be outwitted, that same husband later in the day read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day: 30,000 compared to a man's 15,000.

The wife replied: 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...'

The husband turned to his wife and asked: 'What?'



lol....so man's vocab is lesser??...this i got to take note

Mini-Z

well found that the the FireLap 4.0 is actually a low cost version of the Iwaver 4.0..apparently Kyosho is suing Iwaver for "copying" its products....so i think the reason Iwaver 4.0 is no longer avaliable is because its going to be replace by this FireLap 4.0.

There is a mini-z lover in japan..looking at his webby...i think he has over 50 cars.!!..over there you can have a look at how the Iwaver 4.0 looks like....


There is a mini-z shop in Singapore which is near my favorite haunt...Sim Lim Square..its located at Tekka Mall.. will bring marcus there one day...it has a nice race track..

someone replied in my Private Mail on what i should do..
Hi
Your engine ran lean. The color of the piston/sleeve indicates lean.
If you look close you can see a line scored on the piston and in the sleeve. They are both no good.
Then if you look close at the head where it bolts to the engine you can see black discoloration. It appears the head bolts were loose and air was escaping at the head instead of being forced all out of the exhaust. I bet when you took it apart some of the head bolts were loose or not very tight.

You could fix this by buying a new piston, sleeve, and ring provided the bearings are still good but for not too much more you could buy a whole new engine.
A new OS37 is around $150 and the parts to fix this engine will probably cost over $100.
When I first started out I burned up a TT39. The thing to remember is these little engines have to run rich to work properly. A lot of the times guys will screw in and out on the main needle and the problem will be the low speed needle. Wether you fix this engine or get a new one always check the temperatue by putting you finger on the engine back plate. You should be able to hold your finger on the back plate for at least4-5 seconds with out burning your finger. If it's too hot to hold your finger in there for the full 4-5 seconds it's way too hot and needs to be richened up.

Sorry for the problems I hope this helps.

Nick


After Cleaning...

Oh no another Hack!!!!

Oh no ...another victim...

Cassandra's blog was hack into.....damm..you....whoever hacked her...she is a nice gal..she did not bash anyone....just blogging her life...



so all blogger ..pls backup your blog..use HTTRACk ..its simple to use...pls i beg you use it!!!

yesterday was out flying from 8 am till 11 am....the flying field near the Sport School area is big....met Frank and ken who were flying their Raptor 50 V2....me going to get one soon....$700 plus... *sob*....Arthur gave me a lift there....and sad thing...Arthur's R50 clutch bell sheared off....too must stress....take a look at the pic below...it was suppose to be a one pc clutch...but became a 2 pc clutch after he did some tick tock - 3D flying. So you can imagine what sort of power these Nitro Heli are giving off...Sorry for the blur pic...Arthur took it with his mobile phone cam...





thats why...when you fly..and hear something funny..land and check immediately...
Back to my heli...seems the engine has some issue now..well it was a more than 3 yr old heli..and i dunno know how the previous owner treated the heli....getting a replacement engine from another flyer....IMHO i know the current engine i have i can change the piston ring and sleeve...but that will cost nearly $60..plus..not worth....but on the other hand..maybe i will change it....see how it goes....
The previous time i try reparing a Nitro Engine(my Nitro Car one)..ended up..wasting $$...in the end i got a new engine..( $220 nearly ).. was toking to Arthur and he was telling me..this hobby like that one...he has spent nearlt 10 - 12K in the past 1 yr...and YC has spent nearly $50K...!!...*eeek*...

This week in the mail..came my DBS Black card....they sent me a pre-approved form..all filled in ...so apply lor...but its a AMEX leh..I hate AMEX..oh well...waiting for the Platinum card also which was pre-approved....the supp card for my wife... hehehe...no mistress yet...lol..

wed....liao

midweek....2 more days to weekend.....yipee...so busy this couple of days in office..with my IA student....

ordered a couple of blinged components upgrade for my raptor
*Metal SwashPlate
*Inline Flybar Control Arm
*Metal Stabilzer fin

and also a Metal Swashplate from Geoffrey Woodward , Australia. Geoff is a nice chap...i emailed him asking about how i should pay for the swashplate....he told me...never mind....he will send the item to me first...once i receive it..then mail him $30 SGD...wooo..nice chap....
Comments from RaptorTechnique
Geoffrey Woodward from Australia made me a metal washout hub and I must say he really did a superb job! Very impressive! I installed it last night. It was a perfect fit. I put some Tri-flow on the shaft and the hub is very smooth and slop free. The head block pins aligned perfectly. Yes the bottom section is very extended compared to the stock plastic part. This is to help keep any wobble out of it. And no, it does not interfere with the swashplate. I did notice on the bench that at full positive pitch and full cyclic the inside of the swashplate does slightly touch on the angled portion of the bottom of the hub, but if you are at full positive and full cyclic at the same time then you have other problems :) hahaha Today I used my lunch break to go fly (who needs food when you can burn fuel hahaha). I could tell the cyclic has a little more solid feel to it, I like it :) If you are interested in one contact Geoff
Thanks Geoff


A good news for me again...salary adjustment....yipee.. so happy when i got the letter...

月曜日, 7月 18, 0017
