Default ModelTech Diamond Dust?

ModelTech has a new delta, "Mach Racer", that looks similar to a Diamond Dust. HobbyPeople says to put a .46 on it although MT says it takes a .25-.36.

Anybody know anything about it?

kinda cute

adding the landing gear will be a big hit with the more mainstream crowd.

Maybe it's just me... but I think that thing looks butt ugly with the landing gear... looks OK without the gear though...[sm=thumbup.gif]

Building a Dust isn't really building.

If that plane had retracts I might maybe go for it........

no agrument there..... the gear looks really out of place. But for most sport pilots, hand launching is a task they will avoid. At least you can remove them later

considering its somewhat small, and needs a light engine up front, id be more inclined to use a BSE-35 in there.

I went to your site and found the BSE 35. Beautiful looking and beautiful specs.

1) Does it come with rear facing exhaust? That would work out well for a wing.

2) What exhaust style options are there?

Both side exhaust or FIRE configuration is available. The FIRE 30-35-40 requires a full pipe setup.

Bob,
That's so sweet! Does the pipe/engine combo come tuned? (Are we ever satisfied?)

Tim,
Probably not qualify. But the pilot might.

Yes. The straight pipe like this is pre-tuned and welded.
You are given the tuned rpm and some recommended props to start with.

Arthur D:

Where are you at with the wing and Jett 35 project? I have the BSE side exhaust 35 that is my favorite engine of all time, and thats a very long time in the hobby. Just screams its little but off as it kicks OS, YS, K&B and rossi rears, the 46 sized engines!. You should just love it. Broke mine in per Jetts recomendations, results very worth the work!

Progress to date is.....
The ARF is on backorder and scheduled to ship within two weeks. I'm not counting on that; we've all heard that before.
The engine I'd really like to use is the Jett BSE you mentioned, but I do have on hand a strong Webra .32 w/pipe. It was bought long before I heard of Jett. Plans are to use the Webra and get used to the new plane, then consider the new Jett, or maybe the .50 Jett also on hand. We'll see how balance works out with the .50 Jett. May have to get off the $ and go for the BSE.

What exhaust, prop, plug and fuel are you running on your BSE?

What RPM are you getting with your combo?
