Ya Daryll!! Agreed! That's why I bought a trailer... reduced hangar rash bigtime. Now my planes just break because of silly thumbs, LOL.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

If there was room in my driveway I would so have a utility trailer. Maybe when a few kids move out with their cars I can make it happen....maybe

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Just ordered a ZDZ180-Shiny Edition. Should arrive Wed or Thurs this week from AMR. This will go on Large Hype Cans in the Badan Vertigo project.

I had a tough decision between ZDZ180, GP176evo or MVVS175. Tons of pros and cons to all 3, but had such success with my previous 180 that decided to go that route again.

Going cans this time... the 180 on RE3's was such a monster. As fun as the vertical drag races are, I would like to tame it down a bit this time so it isn't like a scared rabbit, LOL.

That is still Matt's glider, I wanted a size comparison between it and my OlyIII that day

LOL!! Still love the pipes. My GP123 is on pipes and works awesome.

The ZDZ180 on RE3's (and I'm sure Smoothpipes) is an absolute monster.... but I'd rather save a bit of $$ and tame it down a bit and go with cans. Who knows - it may be back on pipes after a few flights, LOL. The tunnel on the Vertgo will be set-up for both just in case
