Ya Hanes!! Couldn't agree more!! That'll definitely be my next 42% if the Carden should have a spinner dip, LOL!

I got to fly Brian's at Nall (same scheme) with the ZDZ210 and it was awesome! I think the 180 would be ideal. Flew so light even with the 210. And typical CompARF quality!!

That's correct..

If you were to look inside the 2 engines.
you would see the 180 has nice forged and machined aluminum con rods.
The 160 has steel rods.
There are probably other little differences as well. But the con rods is most noticable.

Jeff, he want's you to call him mr. potato head.

A few pages back Brodie referred to my Comp ARF as a Brick. Well they fly like a Brick.
I don't remember if he has ever flown a Comp ARF. The only candidate that comes to mind would be the one Dan-O sold to Greg.

Brodie, have you ever flown a Comp ARF?

Good Morning boys, from Lethbridge.

Manny, wake up read your e-mails!
Tried a comp for 2 mins once enough for me lol

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Brodie, Brodie.
No problem, I will be the old guy on a stool. Flying my "plastic" Airplane next year.

Trevor, funny you should mention "your Bucket list". As that is what we are doing this week. Then one, or two more weeks after our quick return home for some Monday/Tuesday appointments.
Yes, I see myself enjoying it. Much more than the mental image I have of Mr. Potatohead, poptopping a 3DHS with a CT 111.
Nothing wrong with it Brodie. Just an aging thing. I see my peers are in the same boat.

Well we landed in Medicine Hat. Quick 2hr drive today. Go find something to do in this beautiful weather.

-Dale-

P.S. 2 minutes, hmm.
