Hi coxaddict, all these little models are pretty sensitive to wind conditions. My take is that the only way to deal with windy conditions is to have a hign wing loading but then the model is tricky to fly.

Paul you can run without the muffler for a tad more power.
A Master Airscrew 5.5x4 might get it moving a bit faster
for more solid control. Can also try a high compression
head with 1 shim. What is your nitro content?.

Nitro content is 12%. I have increased the muffler exhaust diameter from 2mm to 4mm and now the power is back with the 6x3 cox prop. Very Happy

Salut Paul,

You got a cool plane and a good flyer. I liked the video. Is the TD for the same plane?

Thank you Lieven. Very Happy

No, the TD is for a future model, maybe the P-51D from House of Balsa. I may buy a Cox .049 Venom to replace the Golden Bee on the Little Mediator.

Paul, You could get a high-performance cylinder and piston plus head for that golden bee.

Those are the same parts that are on the Venom, I think. Unfortunately that cylinder won't work well with a muffler.

Hi Karif,

I think the Golden Bee crankshaft is too weak to bear the extra power. Look at the Venom specifications:

You can read that the Venom features a Killer Bee crankshaft.
