Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I see there is a ZDZ180 for sale cheap on FG. Looks to be in perfect shape. Looks like he is getting out of the hobby. Has his planes up for sale too.

That is all

My BME58 is running like a charm. I had a reed pedal break on it, but just went to Royal Distributing and bought a new CF reed and it runs great! A simple $35 repair. Runs like a swiss watch on the ES Composites tuned pipe Again, very smooth, but not very powerful.

Still decent power:weight for both... lightest motors on the planet!

Wow, off topic but I just cleared out 12" of snow and it is still snowing. I thought I better get the driveway cleared off before it is 24"

Sorry trev. I just had bad luck and was grumpy when I wrote that. I had a rum, everything is good now lol.

The reeds went out on the first flight that I owned it. Tried to get new reeds for a year from BME with no luck them he just stopped returning emails and answering calls
