  2. Yes, the speed is amazing , and explains why the 'Galloping Ghost ' impact, when viewed in normal time , doesn't show the aircraft at all . Jim G

  8. Thanks Mike , my hangar share is at YCAB so when I am confident with its reliability and my flying I will apply to have the testing area extended to include Caboolture . I'll get big Cuz , Danny and Roger to fly escort when I bring it over, looking forward to it . Cheers Jim G
  9. I've done 4.5 hours total flying now and over Easter i will ( hopefully ) mount my dummy Lewis Machine gun . So I guess that'll be a good reason to do another little vid. Kev is still teaching , i will let him know your intentions. Cheers Jim G
  10. Thanks Pete , I had found those , my baffling is a mixture of that and cheating some Revmaster methods . I'm going to run it with a water manometer set up to measure the pressure drop between the across the heads etc. and see what i have got . cheers Jim G
  11. Canadian Graham Lee is the plans designer , he passed away a few years ago and his son Michael runs the website and sells the plans. cheers Jim G
  12. Thanks Pete , I am keen learn about successful VW cooling set ups. Cheers Jim G
  13. Not sure what the Noon patrol have done there . Can you refer me to a link or article please. cheers Jim G
  14. Great work Mark , Danny sent me a couple of youtube clips about 'balance beads', used in tyres , to understand how it all works . Amazingly simple once one understands the process. I don't think it can ever be perfect though, because of the ' hunting ' gearset used in the gearbox . That means any imbalance in the engine will be in a different place at the prop shaft every engine revolution . I suppose an extra Balancemaster mounted to the engine flywheel may take care of that . cheers Jim G
