Trevor, 1lb 15.1oz. Ha-ha. The Comp ARF just floats, for the 12 flights of mine. Measured up the MVVS-190. Looks like a 19" header extension is required. But I am using TBM cans, with a 30mm inlet. I will do my 28-30 couplings on the Y headers then the 30mm extension.
Oh, another engine that could use a little anti-seize on the prop bolts/hub.
Jack, I re-did the throttle servo when I was installing the new servo's.
Remember you found a loose servo mounting box (when you delivered). Knowing I was going to do a change-out. I opted to not re-do the choke servo box. Well it pulled off when taking the servo arm off. You might check your epoxy, as in brand or age.
The motor stand-offs are great. Jack used a mix of stand-offs. Just so happens one set was 2". What I need to remove to mount the quad.
Arlene is feeling better. But now the itch is back from last night (arms/legs).
Date night Saturday eve. American Snipper.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I really like the lead ingot. Is this store bought or factory direct?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I will have a weight once the engine is off. Not sure about 2 lbs heavier for an MVVS-175. But the MVVS-190 is about 2 lbs heavier (or more). I will weight it before it goes on as well.

As for the ingot. Custom build by Jack I believe. Sure looks like a cell phone case was used as a mold.

My DA150L will finally have a home. My AW Carbon Cub ships out to me on Monday so I should have it about a week later.
