Hi Guys , I guess now that I have the F-16 Tractor kit I should chime in. I have heard that the tractor kit SCREAMS with an OS .32SX!!!!!!!!!!! As for the Pusher , the YS 45 is the best way to go. I have the CBM A-10 w/ the YS 45 pusher and that monster pushes like a .61!!!!!! Lots of posts on RCU about different configurations,(pipes ,engines,props) I'm looking forward to getting mine started soon. (I'm shy the assembly manual , but VICMAN is gonna help me out)

I'AM GLADE TO BE OF SOME HELP VICMAN.
IF YOU CAN FIND A OLD BYRON TUNE PIPE ,IT WORKS GREAT.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CUT OUT BETWEEN THE TWO FIN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE F-16.
I CUT OUT A SQUARE 3", THAN BRACE IT UP, I USE A 1/8 PLY. MAKE A BRACKIT BOLT IT TO THE PLY. THEN EXPOZY TO THE HATCH.WITH THE ENG. OUT SLIP THE PIPE THROUGH THE BODY SIT IT IN THE BRACKIT ITS A LITTLE TIGHT BUT YOU'LL BE ABLE TO LOOSEN IT UP OR TIGHT, AND DO YOUR REPARES. PUT HARD WOOD IN THE CONERS. THEN CLOSE IT UP USEING THE FOUR SCREWS ON EACH CORNERS. DID YOU GET THE PIC.

Dave, you go now! Please refrain from posting in this forum until we have proof that you mounted the West on your Magnum...

Are we talking about the pusher again or tractor?

I have a Patriot arf but I am going to start with a McCoy-19 (per Dave's advice-) until I get used to the speed...

Rear exhaust, that way the pipe stays enclosed inside the fuse- much cleaner looking-

Shall we all just leave this forum? full stop?

before we do.....Razor, does the pipe run up into the fuz.....then an exhaust deflector is used to divert the exhaust out the fuz?
any pics?

cheers
Dave

Don't laugh about Razor's McCoy. He probably had it supermodded by Chuck Auger so it will turn a 13x6 23,000 rpm in a climb.[sm=stupid.gif][sm=bananahead.gif]

The McCoy-19 Blue head can turn a 10x10 a tad over 19K on FAI fuel! Have to use a Thunderpower plug though...

No pics of the install, try a search on here since it has been covered- I have a Byron pipe if anyone needs one it turna around for ya !

Gotta go, I think I have been spotted -

Is the pipe for my MVVS .45? If so pm me with a $. I got the kid's arf finished and ground schoold tonight, re-read my instructions, and took the raw foam down off the wall hanger to start working on the F-16 tonight.[sm=cool.gif]

Before you think about banning ME from the brotherhood the kid's arf is a .40 size world models Super Stunts with a Saito .65 GK. That ought to keep me and him in good graces.
