    Default More of; "us guys and our engines"

    Some of these super charged HP model engines are pretty impressive,

    also lots of huge commercial rigs don't really know too many but still fun to watch...

    Even a tiny V8 sounds cool.

    While not home made, my favorite little engine is my DLE 55cc in my 29% Cap 232 Rc plane. She fly's like a dream...

    When in doubt, doubt your doubt.

    Hey watch out I am a what you might call a grey haired, actually very much silver haired , old, old, old ,coot, and don't fly a plane. However this size of plane interests me. How can a small engine like that lift the grey haired old old old coot. complete with his over stuffed, big giant encumbrance of a belly, up into the clouds? Or does, said giant belly get dropped down through a gap in the floor when landing, and scrape lovingly across the grass Alistair
    Please excuse my typing as I have a form of parkinsons disease

    Thanks for that AK, just the quick fix all us gear-heads need.
    Have to wonder how much of a fix the guys that build the little engines need in order to commit themselves to these projects. I suppose the successful completion of a project and the pride that comes with it is exactly the fix that they need.

    Guys like our own George Britnell who demonstrate an awful lot of talent and perseverance with each project that they undertake.

    It takes time, money and experience to build such things. With that combo comes grey hair, if you are lucky enough to still have hair.

    Except for the Indian fellas towards the end with the diesel hairdryer. Guy on top isn't going to grow old at that rate.
