    Bob Mattes does glowbee/nelson conversion heads for the .020, they run a lot faster after he gets done with them..

    Profi's are the way to go on a budget these days, I've got two guys trying to buy my Cyclons from me right now for FF and I hate to sell them to them because they need them to compete but I don't...

    A Baby Bee would suit it well if you don't want a throttle, otherwise just about any 1/2A would work well I think. I'd look at a Big-Mig .049/.061 for power and livability.

    Yep. Sure did. A 6-6 on 2-3 cells is about right.

    I'd be looking to run a 5-5 on two cells for a motor on your KV range. You can always prop up a little if the amp draw is low-going to three cells will likely be too much current.

    An .010 will go significantly faster than 40mph with the right prop on a clean airframe. I've had a lot of luck with cut-down .020 props, you want to take the 4.5-2 and cut it down to about 2.5" and...

    I haven't run my MK2's, but word I got back when they were being used at the NATs was that the Mk2 was quite a bit more powerful than the Mk1, and less fragile.

    Not when the engine isn't set up for the prop, weather, and fuel..... That's the beaty of the VA-I used one of mine in a helicopter!

    The 5.5-2 is a lighter load that one would compare to a typical 'go-fast' prop for the TD. They were ported and timed to make power at lower rpm that made props like the 5-3 square tip viable. Prop...

    The VA .049 Mk1 makes a decent sport motor-they draw fuel well on the smaller venturi (larger one doesn't make a lot of difference in sport props) and they needle well. It will perform a little...

    With servos, you want to pay less attention to weight and more to centering ability.... A lot of these smaller servos were designed with park flyers in mind that will fly straight with 1/8" of rudder...

    Or, put another way, you want the engine to unload to the peak hp RPM number. Revving faster than that is past peak torque, meaning you could be running more pitch.

    If I might make a few suggestions, as a former manufacturer of planes like your Boomerang:


    1) get a 30mm spinner from MP Jet-that's what the airframe was intended to have on it.
    2) With that...

    Like Skaliwag says, the 5.7-3 is probably the best prop for your style of airframe, but the engine needs a 5-3 or similar load to get where it makes best power. It's going to run like a healthy TD...

    1.0 PY is an AME .061, meaning that it is not a Big Mig with milder porting.


    The engine is going to be powerful, but it's not going to like 6" props like those needed for a vintage airplane.
