Default MOTOR FOR SCAT CAT

Whats going to give me the best performance for the money.. Keep in mind I'd rater speed alittle more, and get a good runing motor that you don't have to mess with.. this will be my 1st plyon racer.. I also want to add a tuned pipe or mac muffler or something like that..

thanks

JB..

The Thunder Tiger Pro 40 is an excellent engine. Many people race a Q-500 class airplane with 9x6 APC propeller.

The engine is available through Tower Hobbies for about $85.


A tip when building the Scat Cat - Most end up nose heavy.

You can either shorten the nose or mount some of the radio behind the wing. I installed the receiver battery back behind the wing.

How do you think a OS AX 46 would work? And what prop do you think would be best..?

THANKS

the O.S. 46 AX is just as good or even better than the T.T. 46 as far as i am concerned. start with an apc 10 x 6 prop and if you want the o.s. to really scream try a 9 x 7.

Which is the best mount to use for the OS AX 55? I would like to use one that uses the back plate design.. Any links on where to get one? thanks.

if you can get onto Great planes, the Viper has a very nice alloy engine back plate mount that should be quite cheap . the 46 and 55 have the same crankcase so the normal 46 mount will fit .
