I had a lot of problems cooling mine even with a fairly large opening. I also added 1/4" holes to the perforated plates on each side of the cowl and made the dummy exhaust functional as through...

Not sure about the Roto 85 but the RCGF 60 rear exhaust fits completely in the cowl. If yo shave off 1/8" from the twin exhaust pipes they will fit as well, although it might get a little warm.

The spinner and back plate are top quality but you absolutely must spend some time to balance it. I used Sierra Giant Scale pneumatic gear. Darrel makes a set specify for this plane. It's wasn't on...

I ended up moving the engine back. It was a lot more work then moving the pipe forward but it will give more clearance between the front of the turbine and the bypass. I also keep the rear end of...

Thanks for your reply. I can move the pipe up 1/2" with no issues. It make sense now but looking at the KT manual it shows what I thought the small flair out was the bell-mouth. After checking...

Personally I think it would be a bit under powered not to mention the hassle and the mess of using glow fuel. The Moki 180 would fit but that is pricey. I would stay away from the 150 as it has...

I had my Hellcat stored away but last week I took it out to fly again. It is still rock solid after the initial trimming. Of course the iGyro helps a lot. One of my club members Vic took some nice...

The smoke was from a Mirage jet that went in. My understanding was that he had his Gyro set so that the gain was reversed. It was impossible to fly. Frank called for anyone with a fire...

My 250 is easy to start by hand but I have a 3 blade 32" solo prop on it and I use the biggest Sullivan starter to save blades from loosening. If you have a solid prop you can try to start by hand....

Hi Mick:

The Sato Radial sounds neat like a 5 cylinder Moki but I think it may be better suited to the smaller Hanger 9 Corsair. It is roughly equivalent to a DA50 in power. Probably the best...
