Default looking for a fast sundowner

Can someone tell me a good setup for the hangar 9 sundowner 80" plane to get it to go 100 mph plus? Prop/engine? Glow or gas only please. I know what sizes are recommended by the manual, but I'm sure those would probably fall short of my expectations.

In a "nutshell" A Moki or Mark 210, a APC 17X12, and the Bisson muffler made just for the Sundowner should get you well over 100.
With this setup you will use all of a 400' runway to stop with no head wind, and that's dead stick.

Good luck with reading the 700 posts plus others

I think a moki 210 would be good on the 80" Sundowner but maybe not the 46 sized version!! @.@

i have a saito 220 in mine.
the winds were about 10knots and the gps said 124mph with a 18x10 xoar
i have a 16x16 apc and it feels and lots faster but have not had a chance to get the gps in it with the new prop.
the 2 props peak about the same on the ground 7500 but the apc unloads way more from the sound of it.
with the carbon tube and the carbon gear it came in just under 12lbs.

tonight i put the gps in the sundowner with the saito 220. just over 8000 static with a 16x14 apc on 30% heli. winds were barely moving the flag i would say 1 to 2 mph.
i also made sure not to dive at all on the gps flight. the full throttle dive to the centre line of the run way was no more then about 10 degrees.
I had to look twice at the gps... the max recorded speed was 246kph or 146mph.
max fpm was 2174fpm but it starts to run out of steam around 800'.
needles to say i am pretty happy about the speed and the sound is awesome.
one other note the 220 i have has the stock carb, and its the 180 carb.
also at 50% throttle it works out to 1 oz a minite. the plane is a blast to fly but it will snap hard when flying under half throttle with full rates on if you get to heavy on the elevator.

I found a site that you can put the pitch and rpm and it gives you the speed, but the numbers are wacked and the gps does not lie.
