    RE: Engines for Hangar 9 Twin Otter

    Of course is electric power easy, clean and fast to start...but there is one dimension missing...and that is sound.
    The kit is disigned for .25-.40 2 stroke engine's and that gives good sound...but 2 four strokes are sounding even better.
    We fly from grass, so the .25 engines are on the small site..so there should be .40 2 stroke engines...and when you want the same power, the 4 strokes have to be at least .10 bigger.
    So the saito .50 should give the same power as the .40 2 strokes only with a far better sound.

    Because the Saito engines have the carb. on the back the engine islonger than the 2 stroke and the nacelles would not fit...so we have to make some changes.
    The saito .50, .56 , .62 .72 and even the .82 have the same lenght...so for al those engines these changes wil work.

    Take a look at the pictures how I made the changes....it looks great...the .62 saito fits great inside the nacelles. I made a short exhaust manifold so the mufflers stays very close to the nacelle. it looks great....sounds great, and because there is enough power I can fly with only half throttle.
    I made today a flight of 10 minutes, and the original 200 cc tanks were only half empty...so I can fly at least 15 minutes.

    So with a minor work those saito 4 strokes fits perfect.

    Good luck,

    I have to disagree...when the Twin Otter from H9 is powered by electric, it has a great scale turboprop sound to it....far more representative of a real Twin Otter than any 2 stroke or 4 stroke powered Twin Otter.

    Other scale twins (that are not turboprop in full scle) do sound good when powered by gas and glow engines, but if you want a realistic sound from a scale model of a turboprop, it is hard to beat electric.
