- FLYING HELP WANTED: So, I have an opportunity for a competent control line pilot. I have a Sig Skyray .35 with a very low time OS .26 on it. The model was built several years ago. The motor was bench tested for a couple minutes but I never flew it. It has been hanging in my garage for 3+ years along with a handle and 60 foot lines. I have very little control line experience but I want to introduce my 4-1/2 year-old to control line because he's not too interested in my RC flying. Just asking if anyone has a few tanks of gas and the spare time to give it a whirl...literally! I also have a Ringmaster with a FOX .35 that has flown before. Both models are for sale by the way. Contact Craig Ensey, Corvallis, Ore.

- COMBAT SHUTOFFS: H&R shutoff's, $30.Remote mount $10.
In the past 7 years over 350 H&R shutoff's have been purchased and used in competition. I have witnessed over 80 flyaways with planes using the H&R shutoff, and each and every one of them shut down immediately. Zero failures. We have them for all classes of combat that use a pressurized fuel system. We have continued to make improvements over the years and our new MK V features: CNC machined 7075 T-6 aluminum that has been anodized and hard coated. All brass parts are turned on a CNC lathe. Our new double bushed center bearing is swedged and pressed together as one unit. No parts to loose or solder joints to break. Almost indestructible. It installs on any RTF plane in 5 minutes or less when used with the remote mount. No strings or connectors to worry about. Future planes could be bought cheaper requiring no bellcranks or leadouts installed. It can be used with or without leadouts. No need to have one unit per plane. When used with the remote mount the bellcrank moves from plane to plane with the motor without affecting the control setting. Because of the high RPM of the F2D motors, if line tension is momentarily lost and regained with in one second, the motor will start shutting down, then fire right back up when line tension is regained. I believe if you try out this system, you will never go back to anything else. E-mail Jeff Rein to order. More information on the H&R shutoffs.
