Taurus 52

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I posted a few questions in the general discussions forum but this might be a better place.

I have a Taurus 52 mounted on a Hangar 9 Extra 260 (27%)
Recommended props seem to be a 22-8 or 23-8
I have a couple of 20-8-14 progressive pitch props. Would they be suitable??

Also tank is shown as being inside the engine box which puts 22 oz of fuel in front of the CofG.
Since there is loads of room I was thinking of putting the tank directly below the wing tube which would put it right on the Cof G??

Your comments appreciated

Re: Taurus 52


i have a quadra 52 on one not overpowered just nice. the landing gear mount is delicate, when things go wrong the fuse will snap off right at the turtle deck. easy fix, i dont fix it but a friend does. fuel tank is butted up against the wing tube. had an mt 57 on it first it was rediculous not nice to fly at all. your 52 has supposedly the power of a da or dl 50 so its gonna be lively. a 22-8 is what i have one my quad turns about 5700 not fast but real good vertical just put the throttle up and it will fly away on take off, pulls up from a hover or stall quite ok
