From what I understood,....some Element 170's will be arriving in the U.S. late September,...not sure which ones? I guess it will depend on how long they take to clear U.S. Custom's. Sure am looking forward to getting mine

Hey Snap_Roll,

What are you going to run for power,...Glow or Electric? The mounting should not be an issue either way,...electric you may have to fabricate a nose piece depending on the E-power you plan to use.

The first Element is the ARF version, wood fuse and monkote. The second Element ,is a wood fuse that is glassed, with white paint.
The hardware is MK type, for the price the Element 170 is a great value.

The Element 170 is all over the Fliton site,...

The wood ARF version anyway,...$600.00 + shipping,...great deal!

The ARF pre-painted composite is not on the site,..special order only and 2K,...waiting on mine at the moment,...end of September for me.


I am looking forward to the build threads for both versions and the flight reports!

Yes it will accept both,...but you will have to use the Dave Brown isolation beam mount. I have hard mounted both engines and they are fine,...but the Dave Brown mount "should work better.

I used one on an Icepoint several years ago with a OS-140 RX and it work just fine,...I changed out the engine later to an OS-160 hard mounted and it was just fine. If you hard mount the motor you may have to make some shim's out of 1/8 ply or equal. The mount should work fine for either one,.....Central Hobbies should have it?

Regards,

The CF was add, the ARF does not come with it. The Kit does not come with a Instruction Manual. That is the only reason I'm waiting.
