I've seen a few pieces on the ground as well!!

Had a midair once with small .60 size glow planes(combat without a sissy ribbon behind). Incredible the amount of small pieces of balsa and covering flutters down! We laughed for weeks.

Well I start my new arm exercises tonight. May not sleep much, dreaming of swinging a 3W 157, with the "Big" arm. No sissy CT electric starter for this "Dub" driver.

Dale you should try my 3W 170CS, it is a good thing it starts good or it would wear a guy down pretty fast.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Oh Doug, I expect the 157 to be a wonderful engine. Just getting everyone's curiosity up.

I need to catch yet one more deal tomorrow for all 4 airframes to rotate smooth. I love this!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Mounted on my Pilot Edge with a 32x11W CF prop I have yet to find a person that can hold it by standing in front of the stabs. It pulls so hard, plus the stabs sit high on the Edge, that it pulls you over forward. The first time it happened a friend of mine was holding it and he almost fell forward onto the plane. He tried again and same thing so I tried and had to cut the throttle. A couple other guys at the field tried it as well and the same thing happened. I have never had a plane that could pull that hard.
