Doug they do look interesting. Nice thing being so close, we can open the box before we buy.
The real dig was my G62. But it has a ride for now.

Ahhh yes the "most" powerful in the class.

Sukhoi does not have a tunnel. So they will just run in the fuse. that will be my next project, trying to fit the pipes.

You will see where I miss drilled a hole for the cowl screws. My plan was to put a piece of tape on the out side and then fill the hole with a dab of epoxy, let it set and then remove the tape. Then later touch it up with the paint from CARF. Also the way they screwed on the cowl vents suck, my plan was to remove the little screws and either go with tiny machine screws with nuts or glue small squares of 1/8" lite ply on the inside and put them back on with some socket head servo screws.

1..wanted to try the MVVS

2)..the length

3)..price

But truly other than wanting to buy the MVVS it would have been 3W

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Ya Hanes! Nothing so far can touch the 3W220CS for power. The only thing close is the Mintor220 but the Mintor likes to rev. The 3W is a torque machine to the extreme. My favorite prop was a Fuchs 35x10 for pull, but ripped like nothing else. The massive Beila 33x12 was also sweet.

The downside of the 220CS was the weight which the MVVS190 will have a huge advantage and will surely out-power the weak DA200 and I bet will give the Mintor220 a run!

I've got a real desire for a quad again

So when is DA coming out with a 240 quad?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I was really looking hard at the 3W220 last fall but didn't like the weight. It is a real heavy weight. Just as well go with a 275 which is about the same weight and even more power.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Those cards were a great idea. I thought the whole thing was rather well played and added to the banter.
