Seagull Super Decathlon .91

I thought you might like to see how the Decathlon build's coming along. Although I haven't built as many kits as most of you, I still think this is one of the nicest I've built and It'll certainly sway me to getting another Seagull kit.

Going to need a bigger shed!

Most of it fits in the cowl !

Good enough for now


Unfortunately, mounting the ASPfs120 inverted puts the needle 25mm below the centre of the tank so siphoning might be a bit of a problem. Not sure how much it'll affect mixture setting. Don't need to worry about it just yet though!!

I quite like the Seagull stuff I've had myself and/or assembled for Chris :-)
The 90 size yellow / black Yak54 has been my favourite so far.

Will the engine get a bit more cooling?

The Seagull Yak is one I've my favourites, I built one with a 26cc, but never got to finish it.
I cut the cowl oversized round the muffler for "hot air out" and it needs a little more clearance round the head. Other than that, it's just got the two factory cut inlets by the prop. Do you think more is needed? One below the prop maybe?
