Now, now!!...Winter is the best flying time Even though my GP123 is running like a swiss watch, I'll be getting Fergie/Kole to send me the mod for some comparisons and testing!!!

Per their claim, 6900 on a Falcon 29x9 is brutally powerful. I'm getting about 6750 on that prop right now and mixed with insane mid-range torque of that motor makes it unmatched vs the others

Not sure if Jack grabbed one over the week-end. I understand you have been poking him. My money is he will be sitting outside the Beaverlodge post office by the end of the week!

-Dale-
LOL!! He's been part of our email chain we've got going. If he's smart, he'll get one and see what the hype is about!!!

Dale - I agree. The 160rv-j is incredible and the 180 / 90 are unmatched in their categories. The 112 won't win any power wars against the GP/DA/3W, but it's like comparing a Lexus to a Chevy, LOL!!

I had my ZDZ112 out today... most impressive motor I've ever played with . It doesn't have the brute HP / Torque of the GP123, but it's the most refined motor I've ever played with. The most linear throttle response, beautifully quiet and insanely smooth with the best idle in the business.

And... 2lbs lighter than the 3W and 6lbs lighter than the MVVS
LOL...6lbs lighter eh???

ROTFL!!

Perhaps they should see if "the fix" actually works before bragging too much! I really hope this does resolve the issue at hand.

After all, their track record really isn't that great on that particular engine. Fergie would have gone broke replacing cylinders.

Anyone think there'll be a new crankcase design coming as well?

Crank case wouldn't cause one cylinder to lean IMO
