    Thanx! to some generous EDCF Supporters,( gibbsrule9, billybogota & xbanker ) who have donated 35 of the +1 EDCF Supporter Badges! which means: this thread has already raised $175 for EDCF.
    In fact: I've decided I'm gonna drop my +1,+2 & +3 badges....and instead of renewing those tomorrow, I'll buy 5 more +1's to give away, also....makes an even 40 badges.
    UPDATE: billybag just bought 8 more to give away!
    UPDATE: billybogota just bought another 20 badges!
    UPDATE: TECENG bought 10 more!

    Let's make that: 78 Badges to give away, and $390 already raised for EDCF!

    How this works:

    If you don't currently own an EDCF Supporters Badge, some of our generous EDCF
    Supporters are giving some away.

    These are +1 Supporters Badges, sold for $5 each on EDCF.

    <<<< 100% of the money from Supporter Badges go directly to keeping EDCF afloat! >>>>

    They are good for 3 months from the date-of-issue.

    How you get one:
    Post the following words in this thread: "I want one,please!"

    Post #3 is where your name will appear; see below.
    I'll forward the list to Jon @ EDCF, each time we give away another 5 EDCF Supporter Badges.
    Then your new Badges will appear below your EDCF avatar.

    Yer on!

    Gonna 'solicit' a few more 'donators' before we bust this thang open.

    gibbsrule9 kicked it off by buying 8 of the +1 Badges to give away to non-badged members.
    billybogota just jumped in.

    Any member can donate however many they wish!
    And....every cent raised goes to support our Favorite Playground: EDCF!

    Thanx,xbanker!

    So....the upshot is: we're gonna give away at least 33 free +1 EDCF Supporter Badges....soon.

    Thanx! to anybody who decides to jump on board & give away some Badges here.

    As of this moment, this particular GAW has already paid $165 directly to Jon, for the upkeep on EDCF.

    Your generosity makes a difference....this proves it!

    Thanx!

    Currently reviewing 'Radial Engine: Checklist'..... to get this aircraft off the ground....

    Lemme see:

    Complete the pre-flight checklist.
    Engage 'start' and 'start safety' switches.
    Rotate thru 9 blades.
    While continuing to rotate the engine with the starter, engage 'primer' and 'ignition boost' switches, and at the same time, select magnetos to 'both'.
    When engine fires, continue starting with the fuel primer engaged, releasing the 'start' and 'start safety' switches.
    Slowly move mixture control to the 'autolean' position, then release fuel prime switch.
    Engine continues to run (hopefully).
    Taxi in 'autolean', until engine run-up desired.
    Complete run-up and propellor checks in 'autorich'.
    Return mixture to 'autolean'.
    Prior to takeoff, ensure engine mixture controls are in 'autorich' (very important).

    One last tug on the harness...Note: increased Pucker Factor....

    Jock! Start the engine!
    (Numerous blowgun sounds)
    I don't think Indy would have made it if Jock was doing a proper preflight....
