Default Speed Tips for Kangke F3d-30 Pylon plane

Hi Guys,
I found a brand new Kangke F3-d 30 ARF listed for auction and I am going to try for it. I have one with an Jett BSE 30 and the plane is getting tired. I wish they never stopped making that plane, it was a ball to fly. My question is if I get it, what engine should I go for. Here is what I have to choose I have in the shop

Super Tigre X-40 Fire R/C
OS 46 VF
Nelson SS qm-40 with airvalve
Jett SS qm-40 with airvalve

Also anything I might need to do to the plane. I would like to get in the 160+ range. The one I have with the Jett BSE 30 goes in the 130 mph range

Thanks
Ed

Hello,
I just went onto fleabay and found it. These were real popular when they were being made. I looks like a Quarter Midget 40 pylon racer. Very nicely made, I flew mine with an Webra 32 and a tuned pipe. Go on and look under seller 3girls2cats and you will find it. I think it is about 475 sq in wing area, 54 in span, low wing pylon racer.

Hi Al

Thanks for showing me where this is, might have to try for it myself LOL . I had one with the Jett 40 and it hauled ass, however I did have to add 1.5 ounces of lead to the tail to balance it. I think I migh go for the Nelson or the OS 46VF. I think both would be a little light than the Jett. On the OS then you are going to have to deal with the tuned pipe. That Super Tigre is a great engine, but HEAVY!!!!!

Hi David,
I think I remember seeing you fly yours with the Jett 40, that thing was fast. I guess I would go with whatever engine was the lightest and easiest to run....I guess the nelson 40 SS.

Mine has OS.32 SX and MACS muffler,

looks fater than it actually is but flies like it is on rails.!

Improve airflow what I did :
file the LE an TE of the alum landing gear
light sand the rough edges on the wing and tail.

I have a spare NIB and its not for sale
