    Super Tigre Twin 60s

    I just bought Two of these Big Giant Cats, Twin jugs and all.

    Anyway What plane will this bad boy fit in? P51-D maybe? What Kit or ARF can I put this beast in. What about a Giant Ugly Stik? Anyone got an airplane with one ? If so please share. Paul

    Yes any one the more narrow nose style planes would work for it. A P-39 Airacobra comes to mind first, as does the P-51, ME-109, Spitfire, et cetera.
    Using a Giant Ugly Stick is good too.

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about the Giant sweet and low stik. I have two of these babies. One for my collection and one to use. Have you ever run one of the big twins? Thanks Paul

    Most of the twin 60 Super Tigers were more or less unusable as one cylinder will run so lean as to burn up while the other is slobbery rich.

    The hole in the crankshaft was too small to feed the one cylinder properly.

    I read that ST fixed that problem with the early ST Twin and modified the crank. I dont know if I have early or later production. Both are new. Theres a you tube video of someone flying one. Im gonna test and break in on a stand first. They are cool lookin. Any help is appreciated. PK

    I would test run your engine first to get familiar with it. But I don't remember any problems running them. Of course it was a few years after they came out before I messed around with one. Now the needle setting tends to be a compromise as one cylinder always seems to be more rich than the other or more lean than the other. But usually it isn't a big deal. The same thing happens with most all of the multi-cylinder engines. But the inline twins tend to work much better than the flat twins do.

    I think the Giant sweet and low stick would be a good trial plane. Im psyched to run it. Thanks

    I realize this thread is probably dormant but as a former 60cc twin owner, I loved my engine and had it on a modified 1/3 spacewalker. It flew great and once I got the right glow plugs it cooked and never gave me a problem. ST did change the porting to fix the rear cylinder issue and this did fix the problem. I would jump at the chance to own another ST 60 twin. Wouldn't hesitate.

    Also, I've run a quadra 50 on a Giant scale sweet n lo stik, but I would be hesitant to put all of that engine (ST twin 60) on one. An OS 35 powers a GSSNLS with power to spare. The ST twin 60 will bring Lots of additional weight and un-needed power. I've seen twins pop the engine mount firewall before so you might better be cautious with this idea. I'm all for over powering aircraft, but sometimes you can go a little too far!
