Default 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.

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

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.

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.
