Default TT 46 pro

I recently posted in the viper 500 thread that I was going to give this engine a shot in the
Viper, but I think that I want to see what other options that I have.Any other Plane suggestions for
a Thunder Tiger Pro 46.

One very versatile engine, put a big 3D prop on it and bolt it to a profile fun fly plane. For racing, break it in with a 8x6 running at a slightly rich scream.

The TT46 is a real good running engine. I had mine on a few different planes it it never missed a beat. For a sport engine you cant go wrong.

When I first seen those pictures I thought they were mine. I used the almost same color scheme on my DD and Shrike

Well the TT Pro-46 is probably the single best engine in it's class for the money!

The Viper, Predator (Like Vic is working on), and even the $50 Sonic would all be good choices... I would run the Tower Muffler for $14 bucks and maybe a 9x7 APC to start.

I have flown 3D profiles with the TT, speed stuff etc. the engine is a Jack of all trades type of powerplant!

I wish i still had mine-

I've had my 46pro and Perf Spec Tuned muffler onthe frot of my .40 size shrike for around 7 years. I have a 9/7 apc and get around 16,500rpms. I flew this thing before I had my propjets.

Awesome! The UT is almost as expensive as the engine itself! I AM a believer in the UT or Jettstream though...Well worth it-

16.5 with a 9x7 is VERY impressive. My Webra-50GT turned a 9x8 APC about 16.2-16.5 with the stock mmuffler and I always wanted to get a fancy muffler for it...

It will get the 9x8 after a few more runs of fuel.

The Ultra Thrust really does work. I have had this engine a long time. Before it was on this Shrike, it was on one of those Cheap Thunder Tiger Tiger sticks. Now a friend of mine had the identical plane with a 46fx on it. So we tested the value of the muffler. Since it is interchangable between a 46 pro and FX , we did. I could take him in a race when it was on mine and he could take me when we put it on his.

Just beautiful, ....the Goshawk too!

But seriously, that Goshawk looks magic. Kit or plan? Whose? Does it fly like it looks?

Rene (funkworks) is probably too discrete to admit it, but it's his plans:

Have a look in the Scratchbuilding forum, he has a thread on the T-45 as well as ones going on the F-9F Panther and Su-37.

The Goshawk is from my own set of drawings. I was very pleased with the way it flies. It's faster than I expected it to fly with the TT .46 and still slows down enough to make landings fairly simple. Here's a pic of it either taking off or landing. I'm not sure because the model comes in for landing a little nose high.

Hey Vicman

I put TT 46 pro a tuned pipe and a 10*8 on a Lanier Predatro ARTF and man does it move a great engine that just loves to rev. Its a balistic missile that turns on a dime.

I love this plane, I have two trees at our filed about 150 feet appart that make for a breat two pylon course.

Great engine, that has been in trainer, Shrike with a tuned pipe and now a Lanier Predator.
