More I see our little EME 35 perform the more I am impressed. It does not classify as CHINT. I hope DA brought their A game with the DA 35.

Well Arlene is awake too. Thank's to a Deer on our lawn, the Beagle caught sight of her. Shyt-Show @ 5!

Man I like the mornings. Did a lot of work on SukTwo before work each morning. We have had some nice weather since July long.

Boy was SukTwo ever nice yesterday. Just like taking out an old proven airframe. Lots of canopy-off. But it was so close for balance. Wanted to view my fuel cell set-up. Charge twice during the day. Tweek the needles a bit. But right from first lift-off it could have been flown that way all summer. A real nice feeling. Yet another form of reward in our great hobby.

So Dale - you've now got 2 identical airframes - one with a ZDZ160 and one with 3W170. Which motor do you like better?

Is this some lead work to sting me on my error over the week-end? Calling your Extra 260, an Edge!

Trevor, the 3W-170CS is in my Edge 122" The ZDZ 160 in SukTwo 122"

With 70 flights on the 3W, and only 6 on the ZDZ. The deck is stacked towards the 3W-170CS.

Or, if your comparison is the ZDZ/RE3's compared to the GP-176/in cowls. Again hardly a fair comparison. The exhaust makes all the difference.

SukTwo is so much more enjoyable. Not just the quiet, as much as the amount of 40% airtime since my first Sukhoi. My first Sukhoi was for special occasions. Hell now I just want to fly big airframes. Loving it!
