Hi Ed,
Nice pair. I had a dream with an OS 120AX in it. Very nice flying airplane. I know you were looking for engine advice for the Icepoint, too. The design is a few years old, but most were powered with a YS 1.40 or an OS 1.40. If you want true pattern performance, you'll need that much power or equivalent.

Thanks Will. I just picked these up very cheap so I have not flown them yet. I am leaning towards a YS 140......just wish I could drop a Saito 150 or 180 in there since a buddy of mine has a couple of them at a great price but I was told they are not equivalent in power to a YS140.

The YS160 is a much smoother engine than the 140 and is the same weight. Both are more suitable for what you want.

then again one could install the 160 crank into the 140 and have a very smooth running 140.

The bigger question is why would you? It may also be more than just the crank that contributes to the smoothness.

Also, the 160 weighs the same and has more power.

I got my DZ140 as a bunch of parts in a box from a buddy that got it from a buddy that sheared the crank pin. Sent it off to Richard Verano who called me and said he was going to install the 160 crank as it would run much smoother. 3 weeks later I got the engine back. It has become my favorite glow engine. It flys my 9 lb Reed Falcon around like it were a rag doll. As far as the vibration is concerned, very minimal for a 4 stroke of this size. Very comparative to the 2 stroke Webra 120 engines I used to run. If someone already has a 140 and it is providing plenty of power but vibrates more then the owner wants, I think swapping cranks would be a viable solution as opposed to buying a new engine. If he wants for more power then of course going to a 160 makes perfect sense. Personally on the Icepoint, I would have gone E power as I have done on my Symphony and Hydeaway but at the end of the day it's good to have multiple options to make us happy.

Good idea if you already have a 140.

A good soft mount helps a lot as well.

As usual, beautiful work Claude. It looks like a very visible color scheme.
