If you put an Estes rocket motor in it.. could it still be considered a Cox engine? Shh  (ouch.. stop throwing things at me!)

Kidding aside.. whittle-down a hardwood dowel-plug to fit inside the cone. You got a table saw? Slot the dowel for the fin, before you cut it to length. Once you get a snug fit; cut a piece of 1/4" plywood for a new firewall and glue it to the plug. Glue the plug into the cone. Retain with a sheet-metal screw through the cowl.. just in case.

With a new firewall.. you'll have the option of running any radial mount reedie on there.. like a Killer Bee for instance.. Devil

The guy with the spare parts has this one for sale.  
Ebay Prop Rod
Not bad for someone looking to get into this stuff.  Once again, I can't even consider it with the international postage cost.

Rod: Is there a tariff on gifts? If I was to visit Aussie land and forget my prop rod, would anyone get into trouble?  Also can I carry RC gear in and out easily. I want to visit Ekitten2 some day, as well as who ever else is in the flight path and  the Barrier Reef of course.

I don't think the government worries about anything under $1,000 AUD.  The R/C gear coming through customs may attract attention, so make sure you conceal your contraband somewhere else lol!

Are you talking about the water wizard? "The nautical is in a lot better shape than mine and the price was about the same"?

P.s. There is a guy who used to sell on eBay who has his own website and sells the engine pod/nacelle for about $19.00. When I switch to the PC I will post his address.

Happy Cox Prop Rod and Shrike engine pod/nacelle

Post  happydad on Fri Sep 25, 2015 6:32 pm

All: I found an old sale for an engine pod/nacelle and I sent the seller an ebaymail and he resonded  that he " MAKES A REPRODUCTION POD FOR THE PROP ROD. THEY COST $18.50EA. + SHIP
THANKS www.wedoplastics.com JOHN"

also another seller of several reproduction items for cox cars, boats, etc. responded "I wont have any for a few weeks, making a new mold. For information on parts, call MON-SAT, 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM (Pacific Time) NO SUNDAY CALLS, THANKS!  714-840-7239  Chris"

2 sources for the engine pod. I think the second one is redvenomrepros (13628) on ebay and the engine pod/nacelle is $19.00, but it may be the $24.00 GUY.

There it is. happydad RC Plane Head Bang Head Bang Head Bang Head Bang Blow up Mad!
