Oh hell, all good Allan. I'd be honored to be included with you younger guy's.
I hear you IMAC guy's are a great bunch. All joking aside, all toy airplane guy's are good.

Still trying to capture a catchy title for our event next year.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Brad, do you think a single pipe would have saved some weight?
also what servos did you use?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Talked about that with Plane Bender.
Because the combined cc ' s are 70. He feels a 60 cc pipe or re2 won't let the motor breath enough.
He thinks an RE3 or large smooth pipe will be needed.

There is a small weight savings with one large pipe as opposed to the 2 - 35 cc pipes I have.

I am using some Hitec servos I had for the ailerons and elevators. And a 2231 on the rudder.

If i went 1270's all around and only 1 per aileron. I could save about 6 or 7 ozs. Plus reduced wires. Another 2 ozs.
I can switch the dubro wheels to Sullivan skylites. Saving another 3 or 4 ozs.
I could Redo the engine baffles in the cowl. Shave another ounce or 2.
I am using swb arms ( heavy ) LOL.
Go to secraft arms.
Also used 2 X 2700 Lipos today. The were charged. I plan to use 2 X 1350 Thunder power packs. Half the weight again.

I can easily remove another pound.

The plane flew well enough to warrant going the extra mile. I just might do that.

Lorne , maybe we will be talking
