    Plane suggestion for an Enya VT-240

    Hi,

    I have an Enya VT-240 looking for a plane, any suggestions as to what airframe would do the engine justice?

    Thanks,

    Cormac.

    RE: Plane suggestion for an Enya VT-240


    Lots of planes out there that can use it.

    What type of plane do you like?


    Here is one in a WW I Albatros DVa

    It can fit in round cowl planes. Stay away from narrow nose planes like P-51's

    I think a plane that will show off the engine would be best!

    I'm going to use mine in a Snider Cup type Sea Plane.

    A 1/3 scale Piper Cub might work with the engine inverted and the jugs sticking out the sides of the cowl at 45° angles with the pipes going down the sides.

    The engine sounds best at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle so chose a plane that is not a speed demon.

    Here is my VT-240! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix9-MqrNhbM

    RE: Plane suggestion for an Enya VT-240

    Mine , before I got it, had flown in #1 possition on a Ziroli DC3, a Ziroli Corsair (flew very good and sounded great).   I purchased it and put it up front of a 1/4 Fleet and it just loved it. 

    Now, it is slatted for a TF giant Coursair.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the ideas, I would like to see the engine as much as possible, it does not need to be scale.

    Thanks!

    A Midwest Giant Sweet'N Low Stick would be great also.

    I found some pix.

    Peeking thru the faux Kinner you'll see the VT 240. Until I built in some baffling, the engine wanted to run hot. Cured when I opened up the cowl and flow directors to the cylinders.

    Guys,
    Anyone got a spare one lying around for sale? I'd love to get one.

    This is a pic VT240 in a shortened nose on a T240.

    Cormac this might suit what you are looking for.

    RE: Plane suggestion for an Enya VT-240

    Is it possible for you to tell me the setting of the airbleed adjustment screws on the VT-240 carbs? My VT-240 airbleed setting is still at 50% open and the idle is too marginal even with a glo driver. The weather here in New Jersey is lousy and I will not have a chance to test the engine for some time to come.
    Hope to hear from you,
    Jim Meighan

    Members,
    I have solved my airbleed issue with the Enya VT-240 engine. With the airbleed adjustment screws set to 2 1/2 ccw, my idle is now 1.2 K rpm and the max is 6.5 K rpm. I'm utilizing a 20-8 Classic prop with 20-20 fuel with a glo driver keep alive for idle.
    FYI,
    Jim Meighan

    Another plane just begging for a VT-240 along with some additional dummy cylinders. In 1/4 Scale, of course.
