Isn't the prop jig yours?
There you go, Brodie's fault.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Ya Brodie... for kicks give the SFG's a try. They seemed to really mess up the flight characteristics of the Pilots (the Pilot planes have the SFG's reversed from all the others) but the Extreme Flights and 3DHS planes are amazing with them.

Guarantee that you'll overlook the fugliness.

Lorne... the Hype pipes on the GP123 is so far the best pipe I've used. And the 60cc can is working so far. I'm most impressed how both the pipes and the cans let the motors unload in the air. Some of the other exhausts we've tried is like installing a govener.

Also a really sweet sound.

I'll be ordering a set of the Large Hype cans from you when I'm back between Christmas and New Years for the ZDZ180. When I get the 180 on the stand, I'll be able to compare the Large Hype to Large ProFlows. Tough to tell on the stand, but at least can compare sound.

Keep up the great work on the Cans and Pipes!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Let me try a statement like Brodie. The prop drilled crooked? Never. Not after getting a drill jig from pro-rc.ca for $22.95, can't beat it. I have tried jigs on the past. Oh what was I talking about agane. Oh ya. Prop drilled perfect. I bent the krank on a stif landing.
