Ihave a Saito 91 onmy ShowTime 50. At my 5000' altitude it is marginal. I am sure it would be good at sea level. I think that a Saito 115 would be an excellent choice. Make sure you use a sturdier than stock engine mount. I used a Dave Brown 90FS mount.<o></o>

Hey guys, do you think I'd be able to do 3D with an os .61 up front on my showtime 50 and what is the best prop?

I'm using a 14x4 with an Evo .61 NT and a little tail heavy, is slow but has good up this combination engine/prop gives me about 11,000 RPM.

Happy Landings

I'm finished building my 2nd showtime 50 great plane I put a OS70fs both times flies well. Keeps the plane light. Paid 269.00 for the first one the 2nd Ipaid 184.00 through horizion on their weekly special tyhe end of Dec. My brother is installing a 17cc gas on his I'll post how that turns out when he flies it. My opinion is the lighter the better with this plane.

Will you guys have any video of the showtime with the 17cc? I had the OS 70 4-stroke up front on my bird but I felt as if it needed more power. I'm trying the Magnum .91 4-stroke.

I had a YS .91 in mine, and finally sold it (no more glow!), but it was the last glow plane to go. Flew great on the YS .91 at 7lbs at 5000ft.

It's such a great flyer, I'm thinking about getting another one, but going electric this time... Anyone got an electric setup they're happy with??

The Magnum 91 4-stroke is awesome on this bird, the only problem is, the 91 is thristy and the tank is small. What size tank should I go with for longer flights?

I use a Sullivan Slant Flextank 14 oz. And adjusted the low speed needle.


Happy landings

This is great: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFU73&P=7

Could I also use one of these?

I used an 8oz tank over the CG, and added a 6oz header tank up front. This gives a little more capacity, and keeps the CG constant throughout the flight.

I finally sold this plane a while back, as I'm clearing out all my glow aircraft, but I'm thinking about putting another one together with electric power...

I recently sold mine. Had a Saito 91 with 14x7 Apc then 15x4/6 Xoar. Used Hitec 5625 on rudder and 5475s everywhere else. It was a great plane. I definitely would put another one together at some point. It really is too bad that they stopped making the 90 size. I would have stepped up to that for sure!

I prefer the flexible version:

It fits perfect.

I put a OS 91 Surpass in mine w 14x7 APC , the engine run it at 9500 on the ground;
In flight this prop seems to fast and the vertical not enough.

Try the 14 X 6 APC propeller: I had it with a Saito 0.82 in my Spot On 50, and gives me a little more than 9,000 RPM, and the vertical was very good. Even dough I prefer the 13 X 6 With the Saito because the vertical is unlimited.

Happy Landings.

Sorry I meant in my Showtime 50. I Have both, and love both of them, but in the Showtime the 14X6 Is much better even dough the vertical is not impressive.

I want to use a 4 stroke engine in a SHOWTIME 50 and I would like to know your opinions.. I am still deciding between os 81 (w/pump) and os 91 (w/pump).. I am leaning to os 91 but I do not want big modifications... Any thoughts will be appreciate it.

Thanks.

Carlos.

I had one with a saito 91 and loved it. The only mod I could think of that you might have to make is drilling holes for new blindnuts if the engine is too wide. You could also shave the mount sides down to make it fit, but i dont like to take the chance of weakening anything.

Finally decided to get another Showtime50. This time I'm going to install a YS110FZ. If the YS91AC was an excellent engine in my previous plane, I think the 110 will be amazing. Need to create a larger opening in the bottom so there is enough venting.
I remember I was using an APC 16X6 . Do any of you fly with this engine and if so, what propeller?

OK, after much consideration and talking to people on and off the forum, I have filtered down my choices for my next 3D airplane to betweer the GP Reactor Bipe and H9 Showtime 50. Both of these are quite good (with suitable strengthening), but I can purchase only one. Though the Showtime is cheaper, due to Tower discounts and including customs & shipping, pricing works out to nearly same. Please suggest which of these two is the better and why
