Default Mvvs .40 Gfs Abc-rc ????????????????

Can anyone help me out here. I have a chance to pick one of these up and am wondering if it is a good engine for a speed plane. I plan on putting it on the nose of an xciter from www.aerocrafts.net Thanks

I am surprised you have had no answers, so I will help.
The combo of the MVVS and any Quickee type design is a
great sport/fun set up. It may not be exteme speed but it will be
fast. I say go for it and let us know how you like it.

I don't recall any of the regulars here ever mentioning they had one or had messed with one. Otherwise folks are pretty eager to chime in around here.

I've seen an xciter and they are well built. Not sure I would say its a ultra competitive model with the fiberglass composite racers, but its a nice fast sport plane at a good price.

As to the MVVS, not familiar with that all. You sure none of the Canadian racers have an older Nelson Short Stroke that they would part with at a fair price??

Is this the .40 MVVS that can be turned to rear exhaust? I went to the Canadian MVVS site and it looks like the older smaller crank one like I had in a DD. Good motor but the newer bigger crank version had significantly more power. The larger crank ones are what I have in my twin Outlaw.

hey thanks guys.  I figured it must have been a bit of a oddball with the lack of comments, but no worries.  I'm pretty excited about the xciter...... corny i know.. lol.  It looks to be a nice plane and i got a custom covering job so it should look pretty sweet.  I wasn't looking for a composite full on race plane.. just something to get my feet wet with.  I'm sure this will induce a bit of pucker factor!!  Someone else bought the engine ahead of me so i'll stick my O.S. .55 ax on the nose with a tuned pipe for now and if that gets boring then i look at a real race engine.







thanks for the help gents





happy flying.
