    This is an excellent engine for airplanes!
    Light and powerful. I used it on my UCD-46 and now have it on my Omp Edge -47, an Old 3D kit from OMP for which it is a perfect fit. Two years ago I put...

    OS 1.60fx Piston Question

    Is it possible to install the piston in 180 degrees out and still have the engine run?

    Also, has OS discontinued the 1.60?

    I have a tuned pipe on my OS1.60. It was a bit of a pain to tune it. Once it is set I guess it is okay, but I was hoping to get away from it.

    Also, could you have just bought a Hyde mount?

    We had a similar problem with gasoline on grass - except it was only grass. We put up signs and tried to encourage everyone to use a catch pan. Some did, some would not and continued to kill grass.

    One of the best 3D planes I have flown is my OMP 47" profile Edge. It is a great 3D trainer. $170. I put an OS 50SX-H helicopter engine (APC 12x4 prop) in it and standard servos.

    Good Luck
