So where’s the best place to buy OS P4 plugs? Found these gold plated P4s on eBay.

I agree 1/2 A Nut
I just got a turbo head for my .051 cox engine project and a .010 rear mounting plate for one of my .010's I'm working on from Greg.
My only question is, when is he going to start making heads for .010's? or is it over-kill?
He does some of the best machining I've ever seen. very nice.

What one can hope for with the TD .010 is a micro muffler with pressure tap and RC carb.
A aluminum crankcase with bearings would be the icing on the cake with a full wave tuned pipe.

Like this simply use the existing NV and body swap out the venturi for a throttle barrel aka air choke.

Turbo heads by Kamtechnik - Page 2 02s-b310

Components this small don't cost much in aluminum but will take some effort for good fit and finish dialing in
program for the CNC machine will take a bit of time but worth it around $50 bucks for the set to enjoy good oil
spray control and RC throttle. I have 11 TD .010's all have the upgraded radial mounts and aluminum carb bodies.

If your your going to do crankcase bearings why not do Teflon. Smile

Ok I'm going to let this cat out of the bag. In some of the mining projects we were working on before I retired we used Teflon o-rings for bearings.

Brad I found that bearing I was telling you about. it is 1mm I.D. x 2.5mm O.D. Its in the 25 cent coin holder in the photo.so they do make them small enough to use in the Tee Dee .010
but it is just a standard precision bearing not ceramic.I didn't realize you where turning 40 grand rpm on your .010's. I think ceramic would be the best choice,if you can find them that small.
and what they say is true, if the weather is just right and you turn out the light at nite on these engines.
they do tend to multiply by morning. Very Happy

Yes the .020 turbo plugs need to be a positive boost in power.
Perhaps one day micro mufflers and RC carbs.

Yes very small bearing!
I have used down to 2mm for wire drives and a 1.5mm
ceramic bushing.

Here is a clip example downwind with a stock 3x1.25 prop.


NANO- TD .010 / 41,985 rpm / 50 mph PS / 3x1.25 Prop
Doppler down wind showed 53 mph.

Example I used a 2 mm wire drive with bearings and teflon tube / grease:


1/2A  Picco P-Zero .05 Car Engine - Outrigger Hydro Profi 1/2A Tuned Pipe
Stock X427 prop / 20% castor 30% Nitro. Per Doppler
reading best pass 62.25 Kph or 38.68 mph. / 27,290 rpm

Brad that small plane with the .010 ripping up the sky is great.
Thanks for the video.and that out rigger wasn't nothing to sneeze at.
when you get it dialed in I think its going to be really impressive.
Anyway I just put together a new Cox .051 Tee Dee with RC throttle control and a Kamtechnik head.
I found and ordered a Merlin Glow Plug 7EHD Turbo Ceramic Sealed.
have you tried these glow plugs and if so what do you think of them with a high compression heads like the Kamtechnik head?
thanks for your time, Basswood

The 5EHD is a med heat which you would need for a .049 engines, I test .020 with P4 plugs.
A 7EHD is a cold plug ok for higher % nitro like 35 - 40%
A cold plug is better suited for 20 size and up or a hot .15
