    The Care & Feeding of a 2-Stroke Engine

    Give Rotax Rick a call. He has a web site and Has been helpful for me. He deals with a lot of 670's. Very willing to talk on the phone.

    Rotor Brake linkage

    If you zoom in on the picture you will notice I clamped a stiff hose around the bumper to extend it a little and sort of cushion it.

    Rotor Brake linkage

    The Air Command I had did not have linkage. You pushed the stick forward until a bumper contacted the mast just under the brake. This would pivot the brake assembly and apply it. You might be able to zoom in on the picture.

    Sport Copter Vortex 582.

    I started out with a 503 with single pumper carb. I switched to a 582 with bing carbs so I couldn't invert but went faster. The 503 did just fine. Just needed to think energy is all. 670 with 90hp would be fun to try though. The plane itself in my opinion was very safe. I was always able to...
