Congrats Dale!! Looks like an action-packed weekend was had!!

Nice choice of motors!!! Very, very tough to beat 3W!!! If 3W can convert the most die-hard DA man(ie: ScaleGuy), they've gotta be good, LOL

Now we just need a 24x8W and we'd be all set
I picked up a 31x10W to try on my 150. Falcon says it is a sweet combo and the thrust with a 150 on the chart is beyond anything else they have for it.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I was checking out some videos and stumbled on a few motors on the same plane.. all 41% Krill 330's.

As much as I loved the Valach210, pretty clear to see the power difference and weight benefit of the 2-strokes.

Which do you think is the strongest motor?? LMAO!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I just watched the last three and to be honest I don't really see one that stands out from the rest. To really compare them they would have to at least be flying at the same field together. We don't know what altitudes and temps each plane is flying in.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Doooh!! Was thinking this would start a big debate, LOL!!

Pretty crazy though to see the weight and lack of power of the VM210 compared to the others. I couldn't beleive when he landed how you could see the increased wing loading!!

The pilot in the first video I think just came off a 40 sized trainer though. Hard to compare that
