Default Staverton Again

This morning, the third Sunday of the month, I again attended the A30/A35 meeting at the above. There's a small café there, The Aviator, which sells breakfast food as well as hot drinks. Turnout was poor, considering the scorching weather, with not many interesting, to my mind, cars in attendance. A few of the other punters wanted to chat about the A352, but I spent most of my time there watching the aircraft, both fixed and rotary winged, playing.

My carb. investigations had revealed that I'd replaced the dashpots 90° out and possibly overtightened. Rectifying these schoolboy errors has transformed the performance, but only over 2000rpm, beneath which the engine dies. More fiddling required

A couple of shots:





Regards, Mick

p.s. Thanks Paul
