to any users of this engine or the 2.16 I'd sure like to hear about your experiences with them, thanks. I would like to get into a first gasser aerobatic sports plane next season . Any plane/engine combo's you would suggest ?

These are great engines, i have the 58 and it is such a powerhouse for the size, at the funfly on the weekend a few guys thought i had and 80, in my plane!, the 1.6 is a good replacment for the 1.20 to 1.50 four strokes, it is a little heavier but you won't be dissapointed with the performance, go to their website, there is a review there and all teh specs. If you don't have one yet call John at triad aviation 1 888 783 3912, he has them in stock, or email Dave Moen here on rccanada, he is the canadian importer, he can help you out too. i just wwent and checked the review again, teh engine will turn an 18-10 menz at 6700rpm, pretty impressive for a 1.6, it weighs 2 pounds, plus ignition, about 3 pound total(ingnition, and battery).
There is no such thing as too low

The MVVS 1.60 gas ROCKS!

I would say that even if I wasn't the Canadian distributor!

My partner and I have them on H9 Ultra Stick Lite's with the tuned pipe. I run an 18x8 Menz "S" prop. I get 8300 rpm static out of the thing! With a pitts style exhaust, you could count on about 7600 rpm. If you are looking for a winter project, a very popular combination in Europe is the MVVS 1.60 with a pipe on a 2 meter Funtana. The model has provision for a pipe tunnel. I'm thinking of building one this winter as I would like something a little more 3D-able for the 1.60.

I fired up another brand new 1.60 yesterday as a matter of fact, pull it out of the box, bolt it up to the stand, adjust both needles to 2 turns open, flip the prop once and it's running!

If you want a first gasser in a size that keeps the costs reasonable, this is an excellent choice.

The actual weight is 1096 grams with the ignition and spark-plug, this is only 2.4 pounds.

what do you guys think of..

putting one of those on my top-flite gold edition sea fury.
it isn't built yet. it's still very in the "do i really want to glue this kit togather" phase.
but i'd like the idea of a gasser.
i do like to buy other peoples junk...

Bob the Builder is my pilot.
