1) CARF Sukhoi/ZDZ-180/JTec pipes..Brent calls it my Deck Dart Beater!! Fly's quite well, I only managed 2 flights. Was a bit nervous today, been awhile since I've flown a 40%. ZDZ 180 is very powerful, plane needs some trimming flights yet. I do have a bit of video I will try and get up later.

2) 3DHS Yak 55/DA-70/RE2..I must say this combo is the absolute best setup I have ever flown. The DA 70 runs, sounds and responds like an electric setup, it is now my favorite engine. The Yak is phenomenal, even with wingburner's rust covered thumbs. I let a buddy fly this combo today and when I left the field he was still in shock!!! I didn't get any video of it but I'm thrilled!!
Congrats Jack that's a real nice plane hope to see it in person someday!!

Thanks Brad, ya the video doesn't do the pipes justice. They are incredible sounding! When it idles, it sounds like it has a performance cam in it.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Very nice Jack!!! Love the sound!.. Sounds way different than the RE3's! Looks like it has 0 issues hauling that monster around

And yes... Best idling motor around - sounds like a Hemi at idle

What prop is that?

A huge congrats - what a whicked,whicked combo

Thanks, and yes, very unusual idle but sounds so cool. I will go out again this week when no one is around and spend some time trimming.....
