OK, I posted a picture which I hope will clear things up. Yes, there is a baffle but if you drill right where the pipe reaches the widest part you'll be OK. You can see a darker ring on the pipe where the baffle starts.

ok yall. so now i have another question for the tuned pipe guys.

the way that i have my firewall drilled means that the eingine is sitting on a 45 degree bank. right now, (looking at it from the front) the engine head is angled to the left of the fuse, and the exhaust is going under the wing. in order to get the pipe on top of the plane, i will have to rotate the eingine a full 90 degrees so that the engine head is to the right of the fuse. but this means that the pipe will have to sit centered on top of  the fuse. ive seen several guys on here set their pipes up like that. i bet it would help with lateral balance anyhow. but im worried about how i am going to fasten the pipe to the plane. i want to secure the pipe in a manner that will still allow me to remove the canopy.

so....any suggestions from you guys who have the pipe centered on top of the fuse?

thanks again yall!

I just did that exact thing to my shrike last night..just drill a hole in the center of the hatch where you want the mount to go. Both of my shrikes are the same way and work great..
you just have to take the pipe off before you can take the hatch off..no biggie.

here's the mount that I use, but there are others that work well too.

I have a power switch/charge receptical on the hatch so there is no need to ever remove the hatch.

idk man.. everytime you repove the pipe, then you have to re-tune it right? i dont want that hassle...ill rig something up...lol

im a little worried about how the pipe is gonna affect the CG... but my guess is that if anything, it will make me tail heavy, which is no problem considering the fact that i have 2.5 oz of lead in the tail to make it balance. lol

im going out of town for a week this sunday, so ill hopefully get some nice weather and free time when i get back. then i can actually begin messing with all this pipe nonsense...lol

No, you don't have to retune it every time that you remove the hatch. Once you find the proper header length for max rpm, back the pipe off a little so that the header and pipe don't touch....same thing when you take the pipe off to open the hatch..just back the pipe off of the header a bit...1/4 inch or so, so that it does not touch when you re-install it...no bigie.

Hey Guys, I'm starting to build a 40 size for e-power. Thanks to Mustang for the rib templates. I'm thinking about a retractable nose wheel only just to save a few props. With a little practice I should be able to come in roll out on the nose and then just stop, sounds good in theory anyway LOL. Don't want to add the extra weight for mains, might not even have a steering servo just hold it straight. Whats everybody think of that Idea? I don't have a digital camera anymore (the ex got it) can't post pics at this time, not much to post yet anyway. skyflyer

I have 2 sets of plans and both have some water damage from being in the garage a few years, but I cut away the damaged edges from both and cut them in half to make one good one...kinda. You can have them if you want them..just pm me your address and I can send them out this week..

I'm building a shrike 10 with a 1/2" thick wing and a DF Rossi 90. Lots of carbon in this bird! Anyone have an idea on a Prop size?

I still have to catch my breath! That's quite a combo. I have a Rossi 45 and would not dare put it on my little Shrike. Can't wait to see yours though!

I have a Picco 60 in a shrike 10 now. I have a pic of it in my photos. It's starting to seem slow so I think the thinner wing and a 90 will get me going a little faster. I think I'll be done with it in about another week. I'll post some pics when its done.

I have a 40 shrike with a .45 df turning a 8.75x8.5 @ 20,400 ..I wouldn't even begin to know what a .90 would need...
The wing loading and landing speed on a 10 size shrike would be enormous.

its turning a apc 9x10 at 22,100 loaded. Yes very high wing loading. Just with the 60 it lands around 50mph. launching is not a problem though.

ok...i was gonna say..the first 2 shrike 10's that i had, had a .32sx on them and the wing loading was high in my opinion and the launches were effortless and the landings were shall we say... (different)...
you may want to put some ceramic tiles on the leading edge to keep it cool during re-entry...or at least wait til it stops glowing orange before you touch it..

LOL! Yeah, I think its going to be fun if I can keep my eyes on it. So what do you think for a prop? Maybe a 9x12 or 9x13. I think I have to custom order them from APC so I wanted to get that rolling. Thanks for your help

I would try to keep that eng in the rpm range it would normally be running in an df jet setup..whatever that is. It will take some experimenting for sure...I was thinkin in the 10x13 or 11x13 range if they even make that..I'm gonna go check the apc website. I could be way off though
