Thought for the day:

Which is heavier?
A Brick, or a Potato.

Not really Jeff.
It flies well, in the video. It won't be under the weight of my Hanger 9 Sukhoi @ 39lbs. But it has more grunt.

I'm thinking it looks like Brick to Brodie.

A "Hot" Brick.
Ha-Ha.

-Dale-
The funny fact is the 180 is slightly lighter than the Mighty 160!

I found Jack's video. Only 4 months old, wow.

I'm sure he didn't have time to wear it out, ha-ha.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Dale.. I'm confused. Did you buy the ZDZ180 or MVVS175? The ZDZ is really light. The brick we refer to is the MVVS.

Trevor, it came with the ZDZ 180.
My reference is to a post that Brodie made (I believe a dig at the Grandpa in me). That Comp ARF's are like Bricks. Yet, I doubt he has flown one.
After 40+ years of modelling, I am very excited about finally obtaining a Comp ARF.
Might let Brodie try it. I would do that (Dan-O first).

-Dale-
P.S. I understand the Mafia's reference to Brick's. Also the growing number in the east, right Jack!

LOL!! I missed the brick comment of Brodie's then!!

The small (60cc) CompARF's are heavy but I doubt that monster of yours is over 45lbs
