I'll keep you in the loop, Dale!! To be fair to the ES pipes, these have hundreds of flights on them and they are a little undersized for the 120+ cc class even though they work so well. With my CompARF Suhkoi, I'm also doing more high energy stuff, so the motor is near full bore most of the flight and it's taxing the carbon pipes.

Thank-you Trevor. I'm on the throttle less than you, I'm sure. I'm sure you will end up near the RE2 header length for the 123.

Sure would have been nice to do a direct comparison. Both airframes have RE3's. Only real difference is I have two fuel cells. Ha-ha.

Hey! Put a price tag on it, send it down with BansheeBoy.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Got the no-name pipes installed in the CompARF Suhkoi / GP123. Currently set at 12" which I'm hoping will be close. For now I can go 1.5" shorter and 1/2" longer. Hoping I don't have to longer than 12.5", LOL!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Thank-you Bradley.
Yes, I do like pictures. And, a nice photo at that. A few of us got out yesterday. Real nice weather at the Trout Farm. I got to try some of that FPV. Way cool!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

That's a sharp looking scheme on that Edge Brad!! I forgot how nice it is until we met up. If I get another Pilot Edge, I'll be that scheme again

And wow - those planes sure don't look much different in size!!

The scheme presents itself really well but man it really doesn't like the sun.
