Oops! I mispoke! The cowl was fine (packed in a separate box) It was the Canopy, not the cowl that had fallen underthe plane durring shipping....
I am now waiting for a e-mail back from BME engines! 115cc 11 horsepower from a mere
4.2 pound engine! (I think this is not including the ignition or it may) I am thinking of placing it in the yak! Nuts?? Well I am thinking about the ZDZ 80 super.. this weighs about the same as the BME 115 and the price is very close , (I will not have tuned pipes) and a twin to boot! Just not sure on the demensions.....
Problem is though if I go with this set up (twice the price of a 50cc) I wouldn't have the loot left over to afford any hop ups (carbon fiber stuff) to make this plane lighter!!
Plus I am not sure if the engine would fit entirely in the cowl?
langster, How is the performance of the zdz 80? A detailed flight report would be great!
By the way I do have hinge pockets in the ruder on my Funtana 100X. I will let you know how it turns out as a bash it all next summer! Seems like it should hold fine but can't be sure of anything!
