We all know Cox/TD airplanes are the foundation of the hobby. But I'm sure I'm not alone with this thought, TD/ Cox cars played a big role with the evolution of the hobby. We have a cox engine contest monthly. Just would like to see another car show soon, as I'm sure the car people do as well. FinkyWhat the Hey, Let's Cox car people have some more fun!!!!  20190620

Yeah Mark, I'm still waiting on a tutorial regarding how you painted that engine. I'm especially interested in the "crinkle" finish on the cylinder and head...and..if it's fuel/heat proof....

Just have to say that this conceptualized idea to an actual functional model is "par excellence". If being produced today, I'd purchase a number of them for the old childhood "Rat Fink" gang of yesteryear. Great job Mark!

Thinking about it, I would be awfully tempted to set that trap and balance Mr. RF on the opposite side, tap the release and send him off minus the engine on the flight of his life. Smile

You could always build one of these! Laughing

Hey, maybe build a free flight model with a mouse trap for power rather than a rubber band.  That would be quire a challenge.  Something for Roddie maybe??

Ain't math wonderful!

I think Roddie is already onto using a foam wheel on his eliminator, first thing I thought of.

Entertaining video, but I must admit halfway though I did fast forward to the end. My only disagreement is using WD-40 on the bearings. Better options exist.

Ever see the squirrel toss video...…….Troublesome squirrels get dropped into a basket and get tossed. They love it. Think Normans storming the castle in the 14th century.
