They're all good Brent. Any plane can be made to fly better than the thumbs that guide it.

Pick the plane/engine you like and get at it.

If you're looking for the perfect setup....won't happen. Too much changes in this hobby. Buy what you like, learn and move on up to what you think is best for the next one....

The real key Brent is to get started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I don't know where I'd find a plane to put behind that 170 of Bill's....... have never played with many of the toys you probably should have in a bigger bird....

I was looking at that Dale, It has some minor damage to one jug and they are a tad purple. I would buy two new jugs and rings, slap them on and have a new engine for a song and dance compared to the price of a brand new one.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Mine came back looking like that, I wonder if they use an acid wash or something?
