Default RE: European Championship 2008 - Brescia Italy

Hallo all
I follow almost all the discusions but this is my first post here.
Sorry for not replying earlyer ,I had an F3D race in CZ last week and was busted with preparations (Randy Bridge was there too !)
About the setup ,Nikos posted some pics of the tests I did earlyer with various setups ,starting with Plett 13 ,Cyclon F3A ,Hacker.
The plett setup was the lightest of all ,horizontal manouvers where a joy !,Cyclon was extremely powerfull but was killing the batts,it was also as heavy as Hacker maybe more ,sorry for not having numbers ,I have some in my workshop.The cyclon setup you see was from a pic I sent to friends making a joke with two pack sets put in to the plane .The mount was universal for all outrunner tests.
The Hacker setup uses a front mount with Hatori Heli muffler soft mouts (silicon) .A similar mount but with a big hole is for the nose ring of the YS setup.
I promise some pics as soon as I take out my engine for cleaning (every 50 flights or so) it should be close.
Now I go practice... it`s a nice sunny day here !
It`s really nice to talk to you all through here
