It was powered by a DA-120 but Im putting the GP-123 in it. Gonna run cans on it. Trev hasit set-up for pipes but if the rumours are true I dont wanna run pipes and have to run a heavy prop to tame it down. Let her free wheel is more my style

I have no idea how many flights Trev has on it. I know it's alot though.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Lucky Bugger. Your on the list then for a V2. Any word on delivery times? Last I heard was Thursday morning Fergis was supposed to have the plastic in his hands the next day. According to Kole, backed by Dave, PlaneBender. Or was it the other way around? Either way, no further updates from the excited states. At least Lorne holds his cards tight to his chest. Much more believable than the third date provided stateside.

Is that the engine it had when it went in ? How and what happened to that bird again?

I'd say I had about 80 or so flights on it. Just a guess - I don't keep track on ARFs!!

Hanes - my Powerbox Ignition kill was faulty... caused the motorbox on Brad's Edge to break at Nall because of a hard dead-stick landing and then I put the kill in my Castrol Pilot 330 that died in a hover and required the rebuild.

I got a replacement Powerbox Ign Kill and all is well.... it's in my 35% Pilot Yak55M / GP123 and everything has worked flawless.

Brad... the DA120 / KS Cans in that Edge was a great powerplant. The GP123 is waaay stronger and a lot more torquey, so sticking with cans is great. It'll be ballistic

Fergie wrote me fri morning:
"Your order was not ready now but I think will ready very soon.
I hope next week I can ship out all the motor
That's fine for me if ship to custom directly"

Key word "MOST"!
