Guys,
I was just over tooling around Curtis's site to see what fun fly's he might hit and I went to the Vigor CS page. He has pics of it that look real recent. Look at this pic from there. What on earth is that at the bottom the fuel line is going in and out of??? A flux capacitor??? If so, where do I get one???

Total guess

I am totally guessing but it sort of looks like a perry pump.

Go to the OS engines link too as there is a close up of the machine upside down. There is a nipple in the center of the crank case like my YS has. Then it goes into something like a pump or something. Flux capacitor still gets my vote.

Yep that's a perry pump. Curtis must be running an OS 91. Seems to be a popular addition for OS 91 users.

Maybe a silly question.....

Does this eliminate the need to attach a preasure lead from the muffler?

If your pumping it, you souldn't need to force it throught the lines with preasure.

Thanks

He flys single stick.....

Isn't that is his rudder control. I thought he twists the right stick to control his tail.

Those of you more familar with single stick can elaborate..

Thanks

Curtis used to fly a standard single stick radio. He now flys a converted mode two radio with a three axis stick on the right side and a short single axis stick on the left side for throttle/collective. Unusual but it works for him.

Kinda like Arnie......

Curtis has a unique yet very skilled way of controling his helis.........like Arnold Palmer, who has one of the most unique (worst looking ) swings in golf, yet he is one of the greatest ever.

Just goes to show ya, you don't have to do it like everyone else to do it good, just be good at the way you do it

But then Curtis can pick up a standard mode 2 TX and help someone at a fun fly, and still outfly everyone there. He told me he just has to "think about it a little more"

I need to learn to think like he does
