LOL Oh I think you do fly a lot! I would love to see the pitts special fly, I always liked the scheme of that plane!

The vvrc seems to be a good little engine for sure and it likes that biela 20-8 prop! I have it in a AW 260 freestyle as well on a zoar 20-8 and it is performing well in that airframe as well.
Here's another couple of planes that needs to see the sun and air again!

Jet's are for Kid's.
Foam Jet's are Stupid (or is that for Stupid's).

Laugh you Buggers. That one hurt. More than so many before it.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

The nice thing about foam airframes, they don't make a sound. If, you don't count the birds taking flight from the tree's.

That's sweet Lorne! Yes, the MVVS headers just go straight back. Be nice to get MTW with a couple different drops and built like DA specs theirs with offsets and flex tubing!
