I have finished installing the Sierra retracts that I received from VQ Warbirds now. A little bit of adjustment on the mountings in the wing (following Rams instructions), andthey went in OK. Still waiting for the wheels.


Ticketec, Ram, or someone else who has installedan ICengine driving a 2-blade 22X10 or so on this one:
How much right thrust did you apply? I am trying to line everything up for the engine installation now (DLE55).
I am thinking something like 1.5 degrees.

I bolted my XYZ directly to the fire wall, no side or down thrust and it's fine.

5900 on a Menz 20x10, it's perfect IMHO.

Really? A 20x10 at 5900rpms?

I kinda thought this plane would need more grunt then what ive been running electric wise in the 73" size planes.
hell......I could throw an e-flite power 110 in this on 8s and get the same rpm's. Even bumping it to an e-flite 160 on 10s using same prop id get more then 5900. last i tacked the power 160 with an 18x12, it was turning 6850.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.......maybe I need to look more into this plane again. I have a 50cc gas motor, but heck if all its getting is the same power as a 110 class electric motor, crap....my wife's not gonna like me LOL. Oh hunny...just got the tax rebate and it was only $1000(as IRS deposits 2500 in the bank)

I have the same setup as Mud.

The engine was bolted directly to the firewall. there is no need to add right thrust. I'm running a TBM 22x10 prop at 5700.

Thanks

A few pictures of the engine installation. I looks like it will a challenge to fit a muffler in here. I don't really want to use the original DLE, since the muffling is practically zero.I do have a JTEC compact invertedwraparound muffler, but this will requirecutting away a sizeable portion of the firewall.

Too bad they didn't pull the firewall a further 2" back and build en engine boxonto it, that would have solved all problems. I may order a custom muffler from JTEC with the dimensions of the original DLE muffler.

In the end I went for a simple solution and modified the firewall to accomodate theJTEC inverted wraparound muffler. The piece that I cut out will be moved back 3cm and used as a rear wall in a box that will close the opening thatresulted. I will also reinforce the rear of the firewall with alutech plates. In the end, it looked OK. Onlyverysmall modifications to the cowlingare needed.

I have decided to try 1.5 degrees of right thrust, and will see how that works.

The thrust, is built in to the fire wall which sits back that is why you cant see it>>>>>> you do see it once the motor is fitted and the cowl

P47...call Alan at Jtec. If you dont mind spending a few more bucks he can make you one with your help on the measurements. It may not be totally concealed but will be better than what you are working with. I am going with a DA50 on mine but have not gotten to the build yet...I will be calling him soon to build one for my DA85 to fit the 109 cowl as well as the D9 later. He can do it

It looks to me like a Slimline muffler which I think has the best sound for the 50cc range...I have the Jtec equivalent and they dont have the deep sound of the Slimline.
