Love the canopy design, having big mitts and small aircraft can be troublesome, nice to be able to see everything

Re: Carf Rebel Hot

Have had some requests for more pics...

- the large removable hatch ( 5 seconds to remove! )
- the 40 oz Dubro is mounted to a wood plate with 2 carbon fibre guides at the back,
the front is secured by a bracket screwed to a wood mount. The top of the tank nestles
nicely at the top and the back of the tank is held in place by the carbon spar.

Re: Carf Rebel Hot

Hi Dean, are you using the supplied pipe? it looks longer than some other install pictures, the x45 seems to be much more forward from what I have seen on RCU. Is the mount a 3d printed one?

great looking install.

Re: Carf Rebel Hot

A friend of mine Bob B. from Kentucky assembled one of the first Carf Rebel Hot using a HAB pipe and carbon fibre engine mount. He did all the design work to ensure that the engine was placed as far forward as possible thus reducing the need for extra weight up front. The goal was to keep it as light as possible. It is a shy under 11 lbs dry. The pipe is single walled but there is so much space in the rear and it is so efficient that there is no heat protection needed. HAB offers a complete package including a CF exhaust tube support.

I must admit I was a little nervous doing the first start but I quickly discovered heat transfer was a non issue. Henke ( designer of the pipe ) did a lot of testing before making it available.
