My preference is pipe(s), then whatever. I have had some very enjoyable user friendly in cowl set-ups.


Now I too have a serious question.

Will my header length tune require to be altered as I take an established set-up from our field here at 2375 ft above sea level, to our Team Pro R/C field in Florida at say 300 ft above sea level?

Dale,
What Jack said is right. The elevation change will change quite a bit of the set up. Even prop requirements.

But if you are just doing a vacation trip. I wouldn't mess with header lengths.
For the short term while there. Just re adjust the needles accordingly and have a couple props on hand to see if something else might work better.

Thank-you Brad. But the plan is to leave an airframe in Florida in Lorne's garage to fly while down there once or twice a year. So once set-up it will be nice. Might build a duplicate to something up here, to stay familiar for us old guy's.

Brodie. You need to step up a size or two on your plane size. Dale will start calling you a student pilot. Lol.
