Speaking of cars, Im haveing some trouble.

Every now and then I press the demobilizer turn the key and it wont start (nothing) sometimes I wait a few seconds try again and it starts instantly, sometimes it wont start for 5 minutes?

It started doing it a few times a month or more ago, and then nothing the problem completely vanished for over a month.

I could use the old hammer to the starter motor trick, but it wont prove anything as it may have started anyway by the time I got back in the car, I just hope it doesent stop working permantly when Im out in the middle of nowhere.

I had the starter motor replaced only 6 months ago and when it does start it does not sound sick, it whizzes up like its brand new, so seems odd it could go so quik, I dont know what it could be.

language barrier thing here? Whats a demobilizer? Anyway isnt it a mitsubishi and arent they chrysler? If so thats the problem Chrysler starters suck and aftermarket are even worse. I went through 5 aftermarket starters on my dodge truck in as many years. I kept a big cresent wrench in it to whack the starter. One like you said had a mind of its own worked or did nothing that one I got rid of. one of the others would wind up but not engage the fly wheel thats where you used the big wrench a hard wack on the starter and the solenoid would pop out. the last one same thing I had to keep it sprayed with silicone spray. I went to a starter and battery shop they told me a starter would be $350 I said autozone has them for $75 they said thats the problem when they remanufacture them in Mexico they will use old parts from other junk starters box them up and send them back. It cost $350 for a new one.

Sold the truck.

Its a Japanese import car, only seems to do it when you hop out go into a shop and come back in less than 10 minutes and even then only sometimes, seems as long as its been sitting a while it never happens.

Its a legal requirement here that our cars have to have electronic imobilizers that stop the ignition to prevent theft, they play up and then mechanics have to take them off. (its not actualy ilegal to not have an immobilizer, but its ilegal to sell a car without one)

I dont quite understand, but theres two parts to the imobilizer, one imobilizes the ignition system and another part does something else(fuel maybe?), Ive already had one part of my one deactivated, I would be driveing along on a busy (highway) then every now and then all of a sudden it imobilized suddenly, causeing me to lose everything, power seering, motor, breaks e.t.c pretty dangerous and embaressing at a set of lights.

Anyway, back to planes.

if it has fuel injection or a electronic fuel pump with a carburator then the pump might need a replacement (located in tank). wornt start after sitting might be a choke control for non injected engine.

It could be the ignition switch.Chevy had a prob with the switches for a while but not sure about the imobilizer..They have a chip inside the key that senses where if it is the right key..But thats the factory one..What kind of a car is it?

I ordered an 88" MX2 from Wildhare the other day. I should have it Tuesday. I'm really excited about this.

I've been wanting to fly planks for years and it's finally about to happen!

It is the very plane in these pictures, same trim scheme. I'm getting actual Breitling graphics with mine, however.

Wild Hare makes a nice plank. One of my club members just got a 50cc size Wild Hare and it flies awesome and looks to be of good quality. He got the red/yellow/black flavor Extra.

The MX looks nice Dood, surely thats not the first plane your ever going to fly is it? should not be a problem if it is, but maybe have someone stand next to you incase its not as easy as you think.

I bought a ducted fan f18 as my first plane after flying helis, and full of bravado went flying down the runway, pretty much as soon as it got airborne was when I realized I was in deep way out of my league, all was going through my head was w.t.f have I got myself into.

I cant figure out this little jet I have at the moment, just nailed one of the best landings ive ever done, but then it just started bounceing, each time higher than the first until it completely fliped over smashing all the nosecone to pieces, have to fix it all up with epoxy now.

Any recommendations for an OS .91 FX? I have one sitting in a plane that I don't like flying much anymore. I want something that the engine is going to pull the snot out of.

if you have nuts billingnuts try the new great planes shoestring a guy at our club had a evolution 100 on it and it was insane!!!

it's a 55 size plane but with moving things around it will fit with a horizontal engine mount.

I would guess you end up with a 100mph racer.

Inspired by another heli flyer gone plane driver, i bought a harbor freight p51. Yeah foamie and junk. So i ditched the brushed motor/esc, radio, and nimh battery right away. Installed an align 35 amp esc, park 370, and 3s 1300 lipo.
A friend of mine bought one to, and flew his first. It was way tail heavy and crashed super quick. The instruction sheet is super vague so i guessed on the cg putting it as far forward as i could. Wasnt enough!
Well the glue is drying now, so enjoy the video! Thanks Charlie for shooting-editing it. Better luck with your TigerMoth!

JasonJ , we call them PLANES ! sorry but it seems to be a heli thing that I always thought sounded a bit lacking.

Billingsnuts, stuff that 91 into a nice 3D ship

Hbk2owner has been doing his homework and purchased a good 3D plane that handles very well at LOW speeds as well as WOT.

SupersixTwo , you should have flown it out of the box set up then after you thrash the original modify a second plane.

I did do a couple of runs in the parking lot. I didnt get the thrust out of it my buddies did. I think the brushed motor was fubar. Anyway the glue is almost set, so if the stupid rain quits i'll get it back in the air soon. A little better balanced this time.

Yeah...I'll call them any damn thing I want to, considering I have four of the damn things. I would hazard a guess that the crap attitude plankers have had over the years towards helicopters is a significant reason why planks are called planks. If you don't like it, thank all the airplane hobbiests who act the ass toward the helicopter hobbiests. Respect is earned, not given for free.....

You've got 141 posts in a thread with the word "plank" in its title. I just want to point that out.
