We use to race the .40 sized World Mustangs locally. We started of, with just the OS. .46fx and were getting speeds between 90-95 mph. Since then, I have seen them fly on Piped .60s at about 120 mph, and non-piped .60s from 105-110 mph.

I would estimate your speed somewhere around 110-115 mph with the piped Rossi.

Daven,

I used to fly EZ Mustangs and am just getting back into the hobby at a slower rate this time.

Would one of these WM Dago Mustangs fly on a OS40LA until I was able to get my preferred engine?

I wouldn't suggest it.

The Dago is actually a little heavier than the other mustangs due to the fiberglass fuze.

The LA just wouldn't have enough juice in my opinion.

How about an inexpensive 46 bb engine like the Thunder Tiger.?

Here at 5000ft the Dago with a 61fx anda Pitts gets around 95-100mph but were at altitude. This is very good for this area.

....sounds like a pretty good combo to me....

More power than the .45, less weight than the .60....
....with the pipe, it should spin-up real good....

i have seen in your gallery that you have the cermark f-20 and the WM dago red mustang.

how do you like those planes?
what engines do you have on them?
what speed are you getting on both?

thank you

I have the WM Dago Red with magnum .91 4-stroke on it. I have also seen many fly with the OS .61 fx. They are very close in speed, guessing 100 - 110 mph with a slight edge going to the OS. I use it to compete in SWRA events.

The Dago is a heavy plane. Mine is just under 8 lbs without fuel, although 22oz of that is engine. With 10 oz of fuel it works out to 33 oz/ sq ft wing loading. Needless to say it likes to land pretty fast.

Cyclic hardover, where do you fly? I'm in NM also.

Default WM Dago set up

Hey guys!

I've got a WM Dago I've been flying for about a year. I Absolutely
Love this airplane!
Mine is set up with a YS 91FZ mounted inverted swinging a
APC 12X13N @ 10,500rpm. I installed a dubro 16oz tank on the CG and made a battery hatch on the bottom of the fuse behind the wing.
A buddy of mine has a calculation program that says it's doing 130mph.
I'm planning on installing a new YS 110 FZ and a 13X13 APC
With the reduced weight and increased RPM, I'm hoping to hit 150mph in level flight.
The only problem with these prop is that it is very hard to slow the plane for landing. There is just so much residual thrust at idle.
I have had a spotter help me fly the plane and once over the threshold of the run way kill the engine. Seem to work pretty good. I'll let yall know how the 110 works out.

....my Dago Red has on OS .90 FS in it (4-stroke)....
with a 12-9 Zinger....although not really fast, it's a
good combo....next one will have the YS .91 FZ.

The .40 size F-20 has a Rossi .45 long pipe in it. it's a
screamer.

The .60 size F-20 (both Cermark) has a Tower .75 in it.
The next on will have the Rossi .91....

Hi there,
I used to fly and still do fly the EZ-Dago Red (40 size). However, we cut off the belly scoop (actually it ripped off) after flying it with OS 65 and 77 Ducted fan engines... High 180mph plus... not bad for a 55 inch fairly scale bird. This is with an 11x7 or 11x8 apc and 15% fuel. Have fun!

Default Four STrokes

I have a question and just can't figure this one out. I'm dumb on different size pitchs and props and never really got into learning more.I need to learn more about this fenonmenone
Why on this earth does anyone put a four stroke on a plane that they want to go fast. Please give it to me.I'd really like to know. Four strokes in my humble opinion are SLOW..

I put a two stroke on anything I want to go fast

This probably sounds stupid to those of you that know engines better than I do and that's a lot of people.

I've had a OS 70 4S that I've put on planes from the Astro Hog (slow plane) to a Edge and it's been slow in all of them.
I can put the OS 61 SF and the planes come to life and hall buns.What am I doing wrong.You'd think a 70 is a fair size engine but it's totally boring.

Tell me what to do to give this 70 some speed besides spending a bundle on High price fuel..

PLEASE!!! Help me fore I can a 4 Stoke.

Default Q-Ball....Please give it to me....

....there are two reasons....and one exception....why
people put 4-strokes in the Mustangs.

1- The Mustangs are kinda fat....they're never gonna
go "real fast" no matter what you put in 'em....

2- The look....sound.....smell....feel....touch....caress
of the Mustang coming by low and sweet....gear up....
can put a tingle into the heart of a modeler, that cares
for that type of vision.... ....and sound.

Roy, I have an almost new. I mean about 1/2 gallon of fuel thru a Rossi 53 ducted fan motor with a tuned pipe. This motor has a rear exhaust and rear intake. Lots of Balls. Pulled my diamondust around at about 180 mph. Switching to a whiplash and the motor wont fit on the front without alot of cutting. Love the engine but going to go with somthing that will slide on. I want to sell the Rossi. Let me know. Smitty dpsmith1390@attbi.com
