It seems as if the excitement of the Nationals had no sooner quieted down to a dull roar when we were caught up in the whirlpool of activity surrounding the 1963 Internals. Unfortunately the closest your editor got to Genk Belgium was to glare at the travel posters maliciously sent back by Cliff Rausin our Foreign Editor. One consolation though with the RC jet-set over on the continent we had the Southern California smog and 95 degree heat all to ourselves
Speaking of heat Flight Lt. Noel Falconer R. A. F. Changi Singapore reports the results of a test he ran at high noon on a coral aircraft park at Gan 40 miles from the Equator in Southeast Asia. After an hours exposure in direct sunlight a black box the size shape and color of an Orbit transmitter had a temperature of 155 degrees F A similar box in high gloss white was 40 degrees we repeat 40 degrees cooler Might be a good idea if all you black-box owners planning on competing in the Dallas Nationals next year got out the old paint brush and slapped on a coat of cooler. Incidentally Noel and the boys in the Singapore area have been flying Orbit and Space Control rigs for a couple of years in temperatures that commonly reach 115 degrees
While on the subject of hot the Veco 45 continues to gather well-deserved acclaim among the RC fraternity. The following break in procedure for this mill recommended by Clarence Lee and Monte Malherbe is well worth following
Look at the engine from the rear and remove the top left screw from the back plate. Drill the smallest possible hole right through this screw and after cleaning it replace in the engine. Obtain some Jewelers Rouge mix with light machine oil into a thin paste and place this mixture into a fuel bulb. Attach a suitable length of fuel tubing to the bulb. Start the Veco 45 with full-open throttle then set the needle valve to allow the mill to just barely break into two-cycle. Force the fuel tubing from the bulb over the drilled screw in the back plate. Squeeze the bulb to force the jewelers rouge mixture into the engine. Watch the exhaust port and when red shows stop squeezing the bulb. Do this three or four times but remember to stop squeezing the bulb when red shows at the exhaust. Replace the drilled screw with a new undrilled one after the third shot of rouge.
Using this method you do not get the abrasive into the bearings but rather is injected right into the bypass of the engine and thus goes exactly where it is needed. This method must not be used to break the engine in completely it merely eliminates the necessity for prolonged running in on the bench. The engine will still have to be flown rich for quite some time. One additional hint if you add another 10% of oil to your fuel mixture you do not need nitro- methane for this engine.
