Help! I have a beam mount .049 Medallion, need suggestion.

Post  Fireball on Wed Nov 06, 2013 5:00 pm

I have the same throttle, muffler assembly as in this thread. Medallion .049 R/C (0.8 cm³) Manufactured in 1988-1996 (#250-1, ECJ #101) This is a beam mount version of the Medallion with the rotating, adjustable throttle muffler. Is there a suggested way to fix the throttle in the wide open setting as though it were not R/C but U/C?

Wire it open to the firewall or use a pushrod fixed inside the fuse to hold the throttle. If you can move the circlip holes towards the venturi you could wire it open by wrapping a small wire around the venturi intake to hold it open.

Depends what you're using it on Mike. Unless you're flying at a really noise sensitive site
I'd chuck that 'silencer' to one side and get a throttle ring.
Those things don't make much concession to quietness but they do strangle the power and load
the servo.
If you look at my 'Dragon Extreme' on you tube you'll see how well the Cox's run with a throttle
ring and how (comparatively) little power it looses.
Very Happy

PS
As I learnt using the Dragonfly tank, they work really well on an rc model.
BUT
If you intend to run it then store it for more than a couple weeks consider
opening the tank, removing the pick up tube, cleaning it, then storing it.
The tube is so thin that it deforms quickly if left in glow fuel.
