Plane I know the 34's only in bronze but a engine limit? maybe run a 4S to sound a bit better?

I do know the Stock WMT-34 with a OS 46AX with a 10x7 prop is right at 95 with telemetry on board. With in highly modded 53 engine turning a 10x7 at 17,000 only hit 116-118 straight and level.
Yes but remember, anything faster then 2:25 will get you a big fat ZERO and I don't mean from the golden goose. 95 MPH would do just fine in bronze. If you want to go faster then bring a warbird and fly silver

I seriously doubt they will do a special wing/engine rule just for the T-34. Prolly just use the wing area just the same for all the others. A OS 2 stroke 46-55 with short pipe or a YS-70 would be pleanty fast enough to break out in Bronze. I just put one together for a friend that would like to try out racing, It has a OS-46FX with a Jett pipe. Power and speed to spare.

When I raced bronze I used an OS 91 and that would breakout if I was not paying attention. I think, unless you have a plane with small wing area for a ys70, putting a ys in a bronzer is a waste of money. Save them for the other classes.

Just because I said i might want to use a four stroke doesnt mean it has to be a YS guys. You know there are many other mfg's of four strokes out there lol. i was thinking maybe a saito 82 or something and a 12x9 prop

That can go in to a really small plane...

According to the rules you can use a .50 two stroke on 400sq's now..

Tim I will put a YS115 in the 209. I will run a YS70 in the pseudo-nami and keep it at 5 pounds of less. I will be using that prop that I talked to you about in the 14" pitch range. I am thinking I will be able to pull around 12,000 with it.

Let me know how that prop works trying to have a few planes ready for the next season. I would like to run the .70 in my He 100 and the 1.15 in the ta 152

Jeff

Hopefully I can get back to the spiteful soon as I can I'm trying to get all the glass parts and the plans completed for the ta 152. Ive got three sets of laser parts and canopys in boxes waiting.
If your interested in the spiteful I could bump it ahead?

Also if you have any questions or notes that you think might be helpful on the me 209 plans. Feel free to send me an email or text. I would like to make them as clear as I can for future printings.

Tim

Yes Tim I will. I should be starting on the 209 with a month or so. I just moved into my new house and taking awhile to get things organized. Also do you have any twins with 500 square inches?

I see your looking for something for two .70's. Sorry nothing in the 500 range, anything I'm working on is 750 plus.

It takes .70 for sport flying and up to a 1.40 for racing.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one gearing up for next season. Got a fuse plug almost finished. Will be posting some pics of the finished plugs. Spoiler alert, it's looking really cool.

Tim, I have always loved the pond. I just don't see it being a capable R/C pylon project. Too draggy, heavy and a pain in the butt to transport. I doubt it would do well on a 2 pylon course.

My buddy has a scratch built pond that was built for 2 pole and Has 120SC's in it (plane is like 12yrs old)  It is bad ass! It was obviously pretty big for 120's but did well in gold. Ponds r so cool. If any one gets there hands on a kit or plug I would love to have 1!

The problem with the 335 is finding a pusher prop with enough pitch.
