Tee Dee ***The Traveling Engine*** SIGN UP!

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:33 am

ACTUAL PICTURE COMING SOON

With special thanks to Bernie from Cox International and Jason Birnschein (Jason-WI), we are proud to introduce the long awaited Traveling Engine! Just like the Traveling Prop, this engine will be passed from member to member eventually traveling around the world.

The engine we are using is the Tee Dee .049 engine that was once encased in a block of Lucite. Thanks to Jason, with a good cleaning and some new parts, the engine is ready for its trip.

Since we are dealing with more than a $2 propeller here, there are a little more stricter requirements than the Traveling Prop. Unfortunately, I will not make exceptions to the requirements.

Member Requirements:
• Must have been a member for at least 3 months (If you just joined, you'll have to wait)
• Must be a Silver Member or higher (60 posts or more)
• Must have a positive reputation
• Must have the knowledge to properly mount, run and clean the engine and accessories
• Must be able to check your mail daily and be able to repack and ship a package
• Must have the supplies (proper fuel, 1.5v power source, glow head clip) NO ELECTRIC STARTERS!
• Must have a camera and a way to upload the pictures to the forum

What is inside the special storage case:
• Complete Cox Tee Dee .049 Engine
• Copy of Tee Dee .049 Engine Manual
• Test Stand with Mounting Bolts
• Beam Mount with Screws
• Wrench Set
• Two Spare Glow Heads
• Ten Spare Copper Gaskets
• Two Spare Carb Bodies
• Spare Spinner with 3 Spare Screws
• Two Yellow Safety Tip 5x3 Propeller
• Two Gray 5x3 Competition Propellers
• Two Black 6x3 Propellers
• Signature Notebook

What to do:
Members who receive the engine are to remove the engine and accessories from its case, take a picture of it (running or not), mount it and run it (and or fly it), clean it thoroughly, sign the little signature notebook, repackage it and its accessories and send it off to the next person. Members can either take a picture of the engine just sitting somewhere (such as sitting in a collection), mount it on its test stand, on its beam mount, on a plane, on a plane in the air, or photograph it wherever. A video of the engine being ran or on a model would be great but is not required. Members are strongly encouraged to mount and run the engine. If for some reason a member can't run the engine (because something came up, the proper supplies are not available...), it would be alright if a simple unpacking is done, play with the engine a little, take a picture and sign the notebook. Members are to have the engine no longer than 2 weeks to keep it moving from person to person.


How to Enter:
If you meet the requirements, you may post a reply below with your city, state or province and country. Do not post any personal information such as personal phone numbers or full addresses.

Unlike the Traveling Prop, there will be no set signup deadline. While a deadline will eventually come, the engine will not have to wait until a full list of members have signed up.

Once we get enough people signed up, the engine will be sent out on its way.

Sounds like fun, but I probably won't fly it (unless my skills improve significantly between now and then)

I'm not worthy enough to meet the qualifications, but I would sure like to mount it up to my 'Green Hornet' Ace Whizard and snap a few pics.
 
If noone else from South Florida signs up, I'd be willing!

It'll be going for a while. You will probably have the obligatory time and posts by the tail end.

Hang around a little longer, post a few more times and you'll be on the list! The engine will be floating around for awhile so don't worry.
