Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

OK guys... big dilemna here!! I have a 43% Carden Extra260 kit enroute that I'll start in February for myself. Pretty easy to tailor the build for whatever motor I choose.

Three Options I see, all with Pros and Cons...

1) Make it an ultralight with the GP123 on ES Pipes - would be a great challenge, but min weight will only be around 32lbs and it'll be tough to get the CG correct with that long tail

2) Lighten it up and put an MVVS190 quad on the front - super smooth and quiet, but a bit heavier than I'm used to.

3) Default to the ZDZ180 on pipes... pretty tough to beat the power and reliability and I could get it in around 36.5lbs, so another missle like the VW Edge was. But I've already done this. Need to try different things


I'm leaning towards #2 or #3. I just wish there was more testing/videos/results of the MVVS190
