I am ALMOST finished my first trainer (an Eagle 2) and have a couple of questions to ask before doing so.
BTW --- thanks to all who suggested a Z bend + plastic connector for the throttle. As you pointed out quite patiently, it DOES work well. A little finicky, but that's part of the fun for me!
Here are my questions:
- Can you point me to the FAQ for this group --- I should have asked this a while ago
- I need to install a basic 10x6 Master Aircrew prop on an OS 40SF engine --- the whole in the prop is a smaller than the shaft on the engine. Is it better to drill out the prop or is reaming a better way to go? Is it necessary to buy a reamer made by someone like GP, or can I just use a tap that you can buy at Home Depot? Typically, how many threads per inch are on an OS engine shaft --- it seems to be 28, but this strikes as oddball (1/4"-28 versus a more standard 1/4"-20).
