Pulls the Sukhoi with a Falcon 30x13 with good sound scores. No complaints here.
Bill, I can agree. I find mine still handy as a Chick magnet. Actually two different airframes for some that don't realize I'm on my second one.

[quote=wingburner;1964394][QUOTE=Dale Hunter;1964002]First let me share. In a PM today our friend Doug is in good spirits and on the mend.
Take care of yourself our friend. Maybe take an electric out first. No hard flipping.

Well Jack sent my DA-120 in for a check-up. Received a call from Jeff at Desert Aircraft. They updated the crankshaft, I think even the pistons/cylinders. No charge. In conversation he complimented me on my patience. Stating so many are grounded while there engines are sent away. I ensured him that was not my case here. Actually I explained how I tried to wear out a GP-123 for the remainder of the season. We both chuckled.
I explained I bought it from WingBurner, his reply, Jack. Wow that was a nice touch I thought.

Well at least the cylinders weren't pink!!

Glad they fixed it up Dale and free too boot. Where's Brent? He needs to read this!

Now as far as Jeff knowing who wingburner is...I'm not buying it! But I'll still buy another shiny!!
He did. Well I used your street name first.

Many people from the 3d crowd like the new 170 - 180 class of engine for more power. 15-20% more power are important to some and not to others. Simple as that
