Winters over (ish) and the weekend weather forcast is good, time to dust off the Twinstar & stir the sticks again. Checked over & conditioned the battery packs so just need a dry & still day.
Are keeping me from a maiden flight on the Wot. Had a few flights with the twink over the last 2 months but every free weekend it seems to rain
Had all sorts of problems getting it to run at anything above idle until I spotted I had the feed and return pipes from the tank back to front, doh.
Just need to trim the throttle correctly, add a splice to the fuel line so I can fuel it easier, add a remote for the choke and mixture needle and get a smaller prop.
Farmer is mowing my favourite flying field for silage today, Wot 4 maiden this weekend?
Well I finally got around to running up the Wot 4 / ST3000. Glow driver installed earlier, makes for hassle free starting. Bad news is that its noisy. Think the OS fs-120 will get put in the Wot now
Not much flying this last month, too much work. Off to the Duxford Flying Legends show next weekend and the LMA show at Cosford the weekend after, seems my flying time is limited!
Seemed to miss all the rain this afternoon, very windy, right across the strip, looked very difficult to land when it was gusting!
A couple of videos from weston today
Need a decent camera
A few shots of the fuz & wings. Need to clear the workbench (dining room table!) to start assembling. Quality is nice but I really need to look at a better solution for the tailwheel, the stock tailwheel is far too forward and very unscale like.
Just bought a glow driver for the Super Tigre on the Wot4. Will see how it goes on the ST, may get some for the rest of the planes. I quite like the idea of not needing to plug anything in to start the engine.
