Gas or nitro?

The OS 160 weighs 32.8 oz and the muffler is 9.7 for a total of 42.5 ounces. Next the fuel tank size. The OS 160 does not sip nitro; therefore, a 20oz tank is probably the way to go.

For me, gas is the better choice.

There's a gasser designed in the USA and built in the USA:
Engine Weight (less ignition, but including muffler): 31.28 ounces (887 grams)
Total Engine Weight w CDI and Mount: 38.18 ounces: (1082 grams)

The 30cc Syssa motor would haul the mail on this plane - http://www.syssaaircraft.com/sap.html

Also, I can run a 12 oz fuel tank and get about 15 minutes. One one battery for the RX and Ignition by using an electronic kill switch. 1500 MaH A123 battery (more than enough) would do it with one on/off switch. My weight penality would be minimum at best, if any at all.


If anyone knows where I can get one of these kits , please send me a PM

Thanks
Chuck

Id be curious to know if that would be a good combo myself. I just got a roto motor 35cc four stroke and I have a US 1000 kit. Did you try that combo yet or no?
