Robert & Joey,

Thanks for the offer of advice, I'm in the process of preparing a Rossi 21 for our local class 5 Speed. Unfortunately in my state speed only gets one or two events per year.

I've previously built & flown our 2cc beginner class. Slow (well I am!) but sooo much fun.

Regards

Joey,

Speed Sport sounds pretty close to ours. 21's mini pipes two lines etc.

I expect slow build and development. I might build a profile model to test the motor.

regards

Hi Joey,

That looks interesting, can you give me more details please. Even pics if possible.

What would one cost landed in Australia?

This is how many people it takes to get a jet speed plane into the air , the gang is Willis, Joey, Jimmy and Bob Mathison flying the plane.

No earplugs, ouch! I still remember the noise from the jets at the Nats here 3 or 4 years back.

Hmm, I think I have video still too, I'll stick it up on Utube and post a link here.

Cheers,
Rob

Hi Greg
Just thought I'd check to see how the Rossi 21 Class 5 Speed model is going?

Hi Fredo,

Model is not going anywhere fast (or slow) at the moment, But I am in the process of completing the conversion of the motor.
It's in bits on the bench at the moment, and I'm trying to master making .015" wire circlips for the piston. I'll probably need to make a thousand of them - knowing how they jump off the bench into the darkest corner of the shed.

If this motor goes pretty well I've got a new one waiting for attention as well.

The problem is mate, you probably don't have Russian Piano Wire for the circlips.
When I got my CS Oliver back from Jon Fletcher, he made a point of telling me he only used Russian Piano wire for circlips......lol
Have a great New Year mate.
Hope to catch up with you some time next year.

Cheers

No Fred,

No Russians in my workshop - well no Russian wire. Mine's good quality German piano wire from our good friends at Parke Piano Strings. That'll have to do me.

I will make sure tho' that the tangs are cut as short as possible. Apparently they have a habit of getting a bit of a vibration going and hop out of the track, just when you don't want it.
