The filter will accept Cowshit.

I have slowed quite a bit on accepting company in the dungeon.
Such a comfy spot. I'm getting excited about building again.

Keeping with the theme. I will be building a run stand of some sort to get excited again over my 3W 106. For my upcoming build.

I would think a higher pitch would help get/keep momentum better. So I tend to agree with you Brad. It has been my experiance that I prefer a higher pitch on my Sukhoi, 30 X 13, or 31 X 12 over the 10 inch pitch props. When doing large high momentum manouvers.
Even though I am yet to enter the world of IMAC. I'm looking forward to burning fuel with a program.

As for Jack, he's just excited I'm back.

He can be the lead tag team member.
(go easy on the 176, it works well)

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

When's all the GP 123 lovers fix coming...wasn't that promised weeks ago, then again today..but nope, nothing to help the crowd out.

Likely trying a bandaid first and realizing it won't work..I can see new crankcases and intakes on the new ones.!!

The 3w is laying so much hurt to my 30x10 I'm considering installing it on a 40% to try and make a light weight version.
Its a killer on a 35%. This thing is soooo good I wonder why anyone would ever sell one

I have been asked my opinion about my 38lb Sukhoi. If I thought a 3W110, or a 116 would fly it? If you are rippen a 30X10, should do it. My 38lb 110" Extra 330 by Great Planes flew well with the 116. But there are a lot better airframes out there now.
Hope this helps (you spend money!)

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

My current fibre bird that the3w is on is around 32-33 Ibs but it needs about a 1 Ibs more of lead in the nose.
YES even with a 3w and the massive canisters ... So thinking of hanging a 150 on it
