Where's the MDS 38 ? It's fantastic for holding down the corner of big plans!!!

I like the look of your extreme speed props Phil. Thought you would be a PSS nut, being in Cornwall?

the MDS was only fast in my design, its useless anywhere else but a Combat Delta
i did have a PSS, but it sucked, we have EPP combat wings which are fantastic down here, 50MPH of St Agnes head, can hardly stand up

Dub Jett makes a Jett FIRE 45 & pipe that is faster than the Jett 50.
It's not posted on his web page, but just ask Dub for the fastest engine with throttle control for a Diamond Dust.

Default Oh they sell them...

And there are a few people who can't figure out the Rossi...most of them are used to running true powerhouses like the MDS...

Here is a review:

http://www.justengines.unseen.org/Rossi53r.htm

They sell them as well.

Yeah that's right. What's all this stuff about Rossi being a sorry Italian engine that won't throttle? I have a .45 and it accelerates instantaneously and idles really low reliably, not to mention the awesome power it has.
