hi guys.i quit flying 20 years ago,started back 1 year,3 planes later got my thums back.eyes ant what they were also. 62 now,flying some sticks ,uproar, traner and tosted my old frazer on a 40 year sail boat parked at the end of my landing strip.owener of strip moved boat boat to mowe grass, i came in dead stick to hot to stop. building a 40 size hots now.agree with zombie,i found this site a while back. its a good thing,lotts of enfo.i want 60 mojo removeable wings ,cant seem to get plans, like to get a kit. zombie say to put preasure on doug, thanks for all you have done ,but your job ant done. old guys like me new to slabs need i you. need all of you to help get young folks started. trying to teach 18 year old to fly now.just think how he would react to a mojo. i have seen the light, need slabs, have lots of two st. engines big ones. got plans for ultra hots. but i think i a mojo be better.maybe a up scaled mojo for tiger 3000 might stir somebody up. if 40 is good , 60 better,150 might be allsome.thanks for letting me run on,but you guys got me excited about flying again.old sparkplug may have some fouling, but still building,flying,and crashing, even into boats,bet youall ant did that.

I’ve tried Saito and ys but nothing Has been as reliable as my os two strokes. A vote for two stroke power but others will say different. My two is 120 ax’s just make me smile

OS 120 with a BCP is a stump puller now doubt, awesome power, sounds great, perfect for 3d..

That being said, a properly tuned YS while different, is was cool too. Low end grunt. I like the YS for low and slow, 120 for everything else :rockon:

No one will ever convince me that a 2-stroke is as pleasing and pleasurable as a 4-stroke. I've had both. I have owned and can tune YS and Saito. I will never fly 2-stroke by choice.

But then, I'm not into speed either.

I hear you. The 120ax is the only two stroke I still have. Its a beast, and sounds like an old dirt bike on roids with a bcp :rockoncool:

have you ever thought,why dont 4st engines have motor oil in crankcase. just like a lawnmover, with a dipstick, 2 or 3 ounces,drain and fill each flying day. no more bad bearings, less oil in fuel. just a thought.i guess those who dont use after run oil would not change it .2st an,t got sound, looks, but sure got power,light and cheap now.

Using good fuel, running engine dry after each days flying have kept all my engines happy, even after sitting awhile. Of course I do live in a fair weather climate, that might help. A dipstick would go against ProBro simplicity and just add weight :mrgreen:

Don't get me wrong. 2-strokes are fine, and even better for certain applications. Different strokes for different folks and all that. As you point out 2-strokes are cheaper among other features. I just don't get much "Happy happy, joy joy" out of them like I do when running a nice 4-stroke.

Never had bearing issues with my 4-strokes.

No worries, sparkplug - thread hijacking is a given here.

I fly JR 72 too.

Don't know what to tell you about the printer and the Mojo plans. Maybe someone else can chime in.

A 60 size electric maybe but Mojo I’d choose.
Any smaller kits being cut?

Staples and FedEx can print plans. I downloaded them to my phone and they were able to get the file and print them for me
