I'm not worried Jack. If it's too tight, I'll just mod the headers to bring the pipes in closer together. A 30min project to tweak a couple solder-joints if need be.

Interesting, hope they've changed them a bit!

Perhaps with a smaller diameter wing tube and smaller/lower landing gear plate it won't be an issue!

The day I get off, looks like poor flying. Oh well, catch up on some assembly/maint.

Complete floater, super smooth ZDZ112 up front, absolute awesome presence on the ground and it the air.

Gimme more HYPE!!!! Please!



See, Hype.

Looks great John. I totally agree with all of it. From Green, to ZDZ.

I had no issues with the Compy 103" Yak54 and ran a DA100L on RE2 pipes. It was close to those angled gear legs, but still manageable. I think the smaller wingtube like you said was a huge advantage.

The advantage over that Compy is that this one is waaaaaay bigger and I'm running the very narrow ES pipes (however I may get a set of smoothpipes from Lorne for the 123!!!)



We'll make it work

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Trevor, what header length for the GP123, ES55's?
Hell, prop selection for the same set-up please.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

John.... can you please take down those recent pictures??? Pains me to see those posted, since it's one of my all-time favorite combos. The Pilot Edge and Pilot Yak55M are right in that running also. Brad is going to really enjoy that 107" Edge for 2014

Yes the Yak was tight, but a different landing gear mount.

Mine was a nightmare...good luck...keep us posted as they are a wickedly nice plane.

Dale....

I still need to validate the V2, since Fergie has changed port timing, port size and piston design a bit to make the V2 even more torquey - this may tweak headerlength. Perhaps not - not sure yet. But here is the V1 testing which will get you 98% of the way. The V2 is a beast of a motor so far after 4 flights, but still very tight.

Smoothpipes - 11"
ES Pipes - 13.5"
RE2 - 12"

As for props, the F29x9 is insane for 3D, but will make your ears bleed with the power of this combo. I'll be trying the 29x9W and 29x10 soon. A really set of sweet props for carving big lines is the Mej29x10S, Beila 29x10 or a Mej 30x10 would work also.
