    35% 260 Cans

    Mike will the MTW's (75) 70 mm diameter cans work with the 35% Extra these are the short canisters. I think they are the 70mm vs the 55mm version. Also are the servo bays enlarged for 8611s and 8711s or will the standard 8411 drop right in with enough meat for the screw to grab with the standard 8411 case. Just trying to settle some issues before setteling on the plane. Thanks Grind

    RE: 35% 260 Cans

    The mounts will have to be removed since they are made for the smaller diameter cans, but the area should accept the larger can with the addition of a new mount for them. Looks like there is approx 93mm of vertical space for the cans.
    The servo opening will accept an 8611/8711, but an 8411 should be ok. The servo opeings are 22mm x 41mm.

    RE: 35% 260 Cans

    Mike, Got the plane looks great. Took one of the DA 150 70 mm canister mounts and trimmed 1/4 off of the sides and a 1/4 in. off the top and placed the top of the monunt against the bottom of the rear of the pipe tunnel top. and didn't have to cut anything. The K series pipes are about 3 in shorter and didn't get to the built in mounts that are already there. There looks to be about 5/8 in clearance aroud the pipes on all sides. I am going to make a vented plate to go on the bottom of the fuse directly under the pipes for cooling. I will post pictures when I have it all together. Thanks grind
