It lives!

I finally ordered some new brushes for the magneto and she fired right off!

Jackman - actually an H is quite a bit bigger than the F-14. An F-20 would be closer to H specs.

Hey Bigdog,

Judging from the sneeze I heard at the end of the second video, I suspect you are allergic to that one. :lol:

There is nothing like the sound of the old F-series engines, it sounds and looks good

Congratulations,
