  1. My Dad has been reading Model Airplane News since the 30’s, and has them all. I have a short article about his Pitt’s Special model he built in 1951 and still has which I would like to submit to your magazine. I’ll post it on one of my airplane project blogs so you can take a look at it. He’s 93 and still building models every day. It would be such a treat for him to see it published in the magazine.

    In the “Tips &
    Tricks”:
    The notes on heating epoxy to use, making it easier to mix. It
    is important not only to heat Epoxy to mix
    easier, it is important to
    maintain at least 70 to 90 degrees during the curing process (5 minute epoxy
    heats itself). If heat is not maintained, the curing process will be poor
    (brittle results), or it may not cure at
    all…
    Second comment:
    “balancing propellers” (By Gary Yarrish). It needs to be
    noted that an unbalanced propeller not only stress the internal parts of a glow
    engine, and the physical structure of the model, vibration from an unbalanced
    propeller will shorten the life of radio servos and batteries.

    Thanks. Robert Hixson.

    publication)

  3. Small ferrous screws, nuts, bolts and other pieces can easily be lost when working on any RPV. Consider doing your work in a shallow pan like the kind used for baking cookies. Working over a MAGNETIC VENT COVER like:

    should help prevent you from loosing iron-containing parts.
