I have to say that I'm a bit taken aback by all of the interest shown in this project on an aviation forum. Thanks for all of your comments fellows.


Cheers,

Chris

Chris,
You shouldn't be that surprised, there are a lot of us who are either former or closet Tread Heads  ;D

Very true! And Des has opened the door to more than aviation, as long as it's WW1. If it flies, or floats, or treads through mud, bring it on!

Maybe once the Camel was dropped the engine would windmill with the propeller, a flick of the ignition magneto and away it would go.

Des.

I was thinking that, but those engines have a fair amount of compression, I've seen enough rotaries being started and if I were the pilot I wouldn't want to trust gravity and a head wind to start one!
