Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Yes it has been a long wait Dale. I first ordered it back around June of last year. It has taken this long to get a new shipment in from China. The last shipment in Oct was all pre-sold before I got my name in for one.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Doug. What to say. A popular airframe. The Glider guy's are doing just the same, lots of old full figure DA-150's are serving Tug duty in this airframe.

Update. I have done enough today. ZDZ-180, off.
Brodie dropped buy. We had a visit, and ran the quad a bit. Maybe tomorrow the quad will come off of the run stand.
Jack, look at the Hype SWB offset stand-off. All broke apart, hmmmmm. Oh well I will use the parts still.
Add a few shots of a nice looking, strong motor.

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.

Dale...you're gonna have major performance loss with 19" headers. That'll create major back pressure. Try it on the stand for kicks.. I bet 300+ rpm impact.

Yes on the cans.
I just recently did the same test with my zdz 112 and cannisters. I tried long headers to get the cans back for CG issues. I lost 300 to 600 rpm. Like Trevor stated , creates to much back pressure and the motor won't rev.
Plus engine temps climbed drastically
