Post  GWILLIEFOX on Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:22 am

Getback,  I just use standard mix 1/3 kero, 1/3 castor, 1/3 John Deere starting fluid, a tad of ignition improver.

Last Sunday, I took the World's Smallest Travelling Engine to the PSO Musicians of Steel 5K Run/Walk.  There I met PSO Cellist Bronwyn Banerdt's father Bruce.  Bruce is the Principal Investigator for the Mars Insight Mission. ( mars.nasa.gov )  Like many others, Bruce tried model airplanes early on.  He's holding the WSTE!

Now I'm getting stuff ready for MECAs 2018 National Collecto this Sunday, Sept.23 a the AMA Museum in Muncie, IN.  9:00AM.  I'll have the WSTE in a Veco Commanche America Class Payload FF (took the electric motor off, but the .010 on).  I should have it back in the mail by the 29 of September.  Sorry to have interrupted it's journey for soo long.

I have finally finished up with the WSTE.  DCKRSN is next on the list as far as I know, so please send me shipping instructions.

I just took a picture of the little guy with his brothers and cousins:

Last weekend I had the WSTE at the AMA headquarters in Muncie, In.  I held my Comanche with the engine mounted in front of the headquarters.  You can see Ruediger, the PAA pilot smiling in the cabin.  Also a shot in front of my brick:

We had the MECA National Collecto on Sunday and I had the Travelling kit on my display table.  This was also the registration day for the SAM Champs. The engine was mounted in my Veco Comanche PAA Load model.  The fliers got a real kick out of the WSTE program!
Follow The World's Smallest Traveling Engine! - Page 5 Img_8811

Later on, out to the field.  Unfortunately, I was by myself as it was actually far too windy to fly.  So, I got no very good pictures.  I had to get the plane as stable as I could, hang the transmitter, and find the plane and snap away.  I got one distance shot with the plane going away, and a landing shot where I darned near hit myself.  But the engine ran fine and flew the Comanche nicely, even with the added (though small) weight of the servos, receiver and batteries.  I can say from experience, the .010 almost has the power of a Cub 049X!

Sorry to have delayed it so long. What a great program!

Looks like dckrsn is next on the list. Send dckrsn a PM requesting his shipping info. If he's not ready for it, you can bump it to the next person on the list.

Where do I find his address?

I will be at the Switzerland MECA Collecto June 1 2019.  I guess I'll just run it over there.  I have asked and asked for detailed help. If I could find an address it would already been gone.

Very nice Bill, I am so glad you chose to fly a model with it. Kudos to you! Also thanks for getting the info out to the collectors that our little Forum is doing good things for the hobby!

The real thanks goes to Jason for providing the engine.

Follow The World's Smallest Traveling Engine! - Page 5 Empty WSTE back on the move.

Post  GWILLIEFOX on Fri Nov 02, 2018 2:06 pm

The little guy is on its way again. I've run 3 of these. My starting method differs a tad from Cox's. I do follow them up to the prime. I don't use an exhaust prime.

I set the prop horizontal when coming up on compression.
I choke to get fuel to the NVA, not into it.
I put one drop of fuel into the intake; use a medicine dropper or syringe; JUST ONE DROP.
Connect the battery.
Hook up the starter spring and wind back 1 turn; the fuel that was in the ventui will be drawn in.
Let the prop go.

This seems to give me a uniform prime. If you just choke, you don't really know how much fuel is being ingested. Exhaust primes are sloppy and also uncontrolled. The one drop into the venturi is easy to measure and works real well for me.

Also, use 25-35 % fresh fuel.

Be sure to strain fuel.

Don't leave the fuel line on the tank spigot when storing. Those spigots seem to be affected by the tubing and can start to disintegrate.

Thanks for the advices Bill ;-)

Tee dee .010 is very sensitive and easy to floaded

Is very important filter fuel and also clean engine with metanol to eliminate nitrometane to protect plastic and steel

I use max 20% nitro
