    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    I used the stock muffler also and it works just fine. Fits in the cowl easily also. Using an APC 17x6 prop. Plenty of power. For the elevator servos, I used two seperate channels on the receiver and just mated it to the Elevator channel in the 9303 Wing Setup window. I'm using a 9 channel JR PCM receiver and found that at certain RPM's I was getting jitter on the elevator servos (this was at a low rpm). Kind of surprised me. I ended up buying buffered extensions from Electrodynamics and all of that went away. Using the G26 with a CH Ignition conversion. Works very well but if I had it to do over again I might just forgo the ignition system and use the magneto setup as it came from the factory.

    " Anyone running the G26 want to offer an opinion/advice on what exhaust they liked (or disliked)?

    I'm using an all welded aluminum muffler from Abell. It's a high quality muffler that's good for 200 - 300 extra RPM. Ralph Cunningham put me on to it !

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    GBR2,

    Is there a reason that you would stay with the mag set up on your G26? Have you had any bad experiences with ignition? I'm running 2 G23's and one G26 on mag. They run good but really hard to flip start. I've got the prop/mag set per instructions, but still hard to start. I've about given up and now use a starter. I've got a new G26 that's going in my Pacific Aero Clip Wing Monocoupe. I'm thinking seriously about sending it to RC Ignition and let Ralph do his magic. Any helpful info, let us know.

    Enjoy the 4th.

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    The CH ignition system works very well and I haven't had any problems with it. The only reason I wouldn't do it again is because of the extra wiring, battery, etc. that it takes to set the whole thing up. The Monocoupe has lots of room and I had no trouble installing everything but I'm not convinced that it delivers any greater performance than the original mag system the engine came with. So just from the point of view of keeping things simpler is the reason I wouldn't do the ignition thing again. As to hand starting, I never ran the G26 except with the ignition system, so perhaps I might find it unacceptable if I did want to do hand starting but I'll find that out with another engine. I'm not opposed though to using an electric starter.

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    rcar4,
    Good job. Was that a G-26? What prop and fuel? I'm about half way with mine. Sent a G-26 RCIgnitions (Ralph Cunningham) yesterday for him to convert to EI. I'm also building a Spitfire, so the Clip Wing is not going together as fast as I would like. What mufflers are you guys using? I've got G-23's on two other airplanes with Bennette mufflers. They are ok, but I want a Pitts style wrap around for the Clip Wing. Any suggestions?

    Keepum flying.

    Slimline makes a great product. http://www.slimlineproducts.com/onli...iant_scale.htm

    I've had one on a Pacific Aeromodels Gee Bee Y with a G-26 for about five years.

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    RHarding,
    I put a crrc pro 40cc in it. It's a little tight put I wanted the extra H.P. I am running a 18x10 Xore prop, on regular pump gas and penzoil air cooled 2 cycle oil. I aborted my first flight off the runway, it got a little squirrely on me, I have only been flying a couple of years. The second take off and landing are in the video. The main problem with the runway takeoff was a fast idle. The motor is still breaking in and had to keep the idle up just a bit. When the thing hit the blacktop it was really rolling fast, on the grass I could get it lined up and stop rolling before I opened it up. I am running the EI and stock muffler that came with the motor. I could have bought the pitts and saved a little cowl, but the stock sounds good and doesn't look that bad. One thing about the EI is once I get the gas to the carb, it is choke on and a pop, then choke off and a couple of flips and she is running. after it has been running, one flip every time.

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    rcar4,

    That's a lot of engine. I might have to rethink putting a G-38 on mine. Too much engine and required prop can create too much thrust at idle and not allow the plane to not move. On the grass you probably will not have this. Once again, great first flight.

    Richard

    PS; What tank and flight times?

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    That is probably the case, thanks. The thing about the motor I used was its light weight, with the servos in the rear I was able to balance it by moving battery packs around.

    Check your wheels/wheel pants. Sounds like the right wheel isn't turning freely.

    I was having the same thing happen to me and it was the tail wheel. It may seem obvious but just because the rudder is straight doesn't mean the tail wheel is. The short amount of time the the tail is down during takeoff can really effect the take off IMO. My take offs are now nice and straight.

    RE: New Pacific Aeromodel Clip Wing Monocoupe

    There could also be a little to much throw in your rudder and as your powering up for take off your inadvertently giving a little right rudder. Also, what was mentioned by rcar4, make sure the tailwheel is straight. If your taking off from a hard surface the short wheel base of the Monocoupe gets a little squirrely at times like any short wheel base plane does. Try taking off from the grass. There is a world of difference.
