When I had it, it flew my 42lb edge with all the authority I needed and I only sold it to try electric.

Most things look a lot better when you see them in the right circumstance... Kens pic being a great example. Look how pretty that pig looks when contrasted with the UGLY of Futaba!
LMAO

Seriously the mvvs does produce power 30x10 6050 rpm (dale correct me if I am wrong)

I wonder if the gp 123 could spin that same prop at 5 lbs though

Mine did 6100 with a xoar 30-10 when it was still pretty new, canister exhaust.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

When pig's fly.
Wait, I just seen one on team Fu-Tah-Bah!

I would be interested in seeing if any of the Latest /Greatest crowd would try a 30" prop on their pride & joy.

When are we all going to claim static thrust values?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

LOL!! But Dale... For under 1/2lb more, you can get into a DA150 that will spin a 30x12-32x10 all day long. And for even less weight increase, you can strap a ZDZ160 or ZDZ180 on the front that are twice the motor of the porky MVVS116.

MVVS are completely out to lunch on that 116... Makes 0 sense when you can have a whole choice of motors for over 2lbs less with marginally less power or an entire class of motor above for nearly the same weight!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I have run the same prop "xoar 30-10" on the 3w110CS with canisters.

It worked, but power band was a little peaky, the mid range wasn't the greatest.
Dropping down to a 29x10 now that's a great prop, but noisy

EDIT so I'm going to stick with 100 cc engines for 100cc birds and Under
and 150cc engines for 150cc birds and UNDER.... going to hang a DA150 on the front of a 110 Yak soon should be good times

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Hanes... Would be a viable alternative if you were used to flying a brick with an MVVS116, LOL!! Would be a lot more fun!

ROTFL!!!

That's right... takes more than a big prop to make a good combo!!

BTW, my 3W110CS on RE2 pipes spun the massive, heavy Mej30x10 at 6040rpm and is nearly a lb lighter than the MVVS116.

If I had a Mej30x10 or Xoar30x10 prop I'd try it on the GP123... no doubt in my mind that it'd be above 6040rpm of the 3W. And with the the lightweight ES pipes, it'd be approx 3lbs lighter than the MVVS

Set them straight Trev!! LOL!

and really 6000 rpm is not very impressive at all!! I wanna see at least 6800 rpm static before it's considered Brap approved......
