Would the aluminum 4" spinner for the Top Flite giant FW-190 be a viable alternative?
It cost $40, and comes in a 2 and 3 blade version.

That is a good idea. Have to check the shape though. May not matter to you if it is not perfect. I think the A spinners are different than the D9.

The Anton and Dora spinners are different in design but I too considered the TF spinner for my D11 conversion. I personally think it looks better in size then the one on my D9. I'll compare them later.

too late, I ordered the one from China last night. The top flite would have been cheaper. I noticed the TF is 4 inch and the other one is 4.25. Prob not much of a diff in that area. Fed Ex says my 190 will be here tomorrow!

I am installing the xyz or whatever it is from HK 53cc twin. I was wondering do you have to install a twin cylinder with the carb down or can you put it up? Never used one of these before. I noticed in your videos Ticketec you used this engine. Looks like it flew it well.

Flies great with that engine!! I installed mine with the carb facing down and haven't had a problem. I know someone else has turned the pots around on the engine is that the exhaust is opposite to the carb but I my choice was to install the engine as it was manufactured.

Thanks

Hey Guys,
I Have not been keeping on the threads much lately. But. The cockpits I produce are fit to the plane. You do have the reroute the control lines and reposition some of the servos most of the time. I try to make the cockpits so they will fit a full body size pilot that is available. There are other cockpit Producers that make shallow cockpits that you have to do less cutting.

I try to make a cockpit kit so that you look down into the cockpit area and it not just for a bust. I try to supply a decent cockpit for a fairly reasonable price...

As my website says. If you cut something up,or screw something up, and need a replacement part just email or call me. I am very reasonable on replacement parts.

Ty

I definitely happy with the cockpit kit. Sure I had to do some mods, but were mostly minor. The plane just wouldn't look right without a full cockpit.

Mike I bought a set of Williams brothers 4and a half inch wheels but felt they where a bit thin for the plane (they could be used ) in the end I used Glennis scale wheels down side is there not cheap another way is to use the esm ones with the kit place them up on a lathe on a mandrel and sand more of a radius on the contact face ( just get rid of the square look ) then paint them in fact I ended up doing this with the smaller ESM190 a5 Down side to Glennis ones are that when they are in the deployed mode ( as for landing ) the weight will change the COG to more nose heavy as they swing forward cheers stick

Gents,
I've been lurking for a long time now so I thought I'd pipe up.  First I'd like to give a shout out to Ramstein, ticketec, Frank (aka) Stick Mode, Kwik and the rest for all the great info and discussion over the past year or so. [8D]

Question is:  I want to get into gas motors (I'm a newbie) and D9 is my choice of plane.  I know the XYZ 53 just shoe horns into the cowl of the ESM D9 at 217mm width.  I want to get the ESM and then move everything to a Holman D9 kit when finished.  Will the XYZ twin fit the Holman cowl....Anyone?  I know it has a slightly smaller wingspan. (2")  Ramstein, your a D9 Experten, whats the inside Cowl diameter of the Holman kit?

Weight wise, are the ESM and Holman kits build about the same for weight?

Jason

Mine is at a friends house in prep for paint. I think the XYZ is too large to fit the Holman. The cowl is much smaller then the ESM. I just placed a DLE55RA in my holman and I had plenty of space. I'd possible go that route. Not the normal DLE as you have to butcher the cowl with that muffler or purchase an aftermarket version.

Thanks Ram,
I wanted to keep everything concealed. Doesn't the DLE55RA stick out the bottom?

OK...  Any recommendation for a motor that will work well in both the ESM and the Holman D9 that will fit in the cowl?

Hi Jase
Good to see you on board on this one I know you will do the kit credit I used the xyz motor it’s totally concealed I did this by using two cowls cutting it at 12 o’clock 3, 9, and 6, and adding in 3/8 of a inch per section that gave me room to enclose the plugs etc and still look scale. The 56 xyz has more than enough power for scale flying as you know I filled in the wings and stab and glassed them which I feel has been worth it. Wheels came via Ram cockpit kit via TY( very easy to install) paint via air brush and a few beers ( ok quite a few beers ) its had 18 flights on it so far, fly’s nice more like a pattern plane .
The xyz starts easy I choke it for about 4 flicks ignition on and she’s a one flick start to date no problems. Have put in link to show xyz in place and running was taken a while ago but up loaded with my normal speed lol (yeh ill get around to it)

Cheers Frank aka stick
