    The airplane (and their pilots) won the 3 top spots of the US F3A Nationals. What else do you need to know? It is a well conceived and well balanced design.

    Kudos to Bryan and love the name BTW....

    You would have to make provisions for the 16-18 prop. A tail dragger possibly and have it sit tall.

    Interesting. So they either narrowed the blades even more to keep rpm at 6900 or left them the same and are stiving to reduce rpm a couple 100 r's. I suppose striving to get closer to electric rpms....

    Archie and all, I'll weigh in. It sounds to me that the guys are wondering about roll rate.

    Thanks. I'm getting similar output on my 4 year old 33. The 20.5 x 10 may not be the most load still. I hear a little prop noise. I wish there was an 11 pitch. Just don't want to bend it myself.

    The 1.60 has adequate power for the plane especially if you use a pipe on it and a larger prop such as the APC 18.1 x 10. On muffler, the 160 will turn an 18x8, 17x10

    Depends on the weight. If around 12 pounds or less, it will be fine. If 14-15 pounds, it will fly but it won't have much performance. The 160 turns a smaller prop than the gasses do
