Hopefully you won't see that crack cylinder problem happen.

Got my 190 just about finished. I used the Sierra gear and made the dihedral modification. Using a EME 70 and made a plate to put the three batteries forward of the firewall. When check the CG with everything added and I was a little nose heavy. I took off one of the plates and it balanced right at 5 1/2" as measured from the inboard gun on the wing. Does this seem right? I've read lots of guys adding additional weight. I believe my engine is about a pound heavier than a DLE55. Maybe thats about right, that extra pound of engine weight plus the batteries all the way up front makes up the difference. Advise appreciated.

Thanks jagdpanther, I was thinking about ordering the electric start for my EME also, but wanted to check the CG first. Your maiden flight looked good. I think I'll be ok the way it is now, and if I get the electric start I'll go head and remove the other steel plate. Thanks again.

Does the EME 70 fit completely in the cowl without any major butchering of the cowl? what about the Exhaust and Sparkplug boots?

Thanks.

yes the eme 70cc twin fits even with the stock spark plugs and boots. there is still 3/16 clearance to the plug boots if i remember correctly. i did cut a hole in the bottom for the carb intake. i had several 1/4" holes but decided to cut one larger hole looking for more performance. i also made the scale hoods or access panels open and close on the bottom of the cowl just so i could get at things easier. i also added louvered panels for a little more air flow. i just cut 2 round holes for the exhaust pipes. the cans are nowhere near the cowl.really it was en easy swap for the dle 50cc as it uses the same bolt pattern to the fire wall and prop hub pattern
but yes the eme 70cc twin fits .

Here is how I made the exhaust for the FW. I bought the large louvers from Tail Dragger RC. Cut the cowl for the exhaust, cut the louvers to fit then painted them. The paint matched much better until I sprayed a coat of flat clear on them. Now I can take off the louvers for maintance and to put the cowl on easier. This is especially true since I baffled the engine. Click image for larger version
