Question H9 Ultra Stick 30cc: Engine selection?

I have a 30cc DLE as well as a 35DLE RA, but I might be able to 'borrow' a VVRC 40 twin ....how does the twin compare in power to the 30 or 35 cc engine? Too much for the Ultra Stick?

Your thoughts??????

The twin might be a little heavy on the nose of a Ultra Stick lite. Would be OK with the original white - black- red ultra stick?

The new Ultra Stick 30cc stick is larger than the original Ultra Stick but weighs the same.
I have a 40cc single on an original ultra Stick and it has plenty of power but is still a bit heavy.
I'd be concerned with increased wing loading and performance/handling with a bigger heavier engine .
I see Ali from Horizon put the Saito 60cc radial on one!

I would probably stick with a lighter weight 35cc or so single to keep it more agile.

Be glad you did not get the 4* 120 kit. It is far from NIB and going back. Brian;o(

Well I've joined the 30CC Ultra stick club and plan on a DLE 35RA. My question is what servo's should I use? Looking for a economical solution that will handle the plane without spending top dollar. I'm a regular around the patch guy, not a pattern flyer.

Any help would be appreciated.

RED, I would go with the recommended servo...about $30 each. That's what I am doing.

I used all Hitec 645s. I used them on many models this size with never a problem. Brian

You may want to try the new Hitec D625MW or D645MW. These use the same basic mechanics as the analog 625 / 645 but offer far better overall performance and centering for just a few $ more than their analog siblings. They also now feature the Futaba 25 spline arms. For a low cost digital servo, these servos really impress me. Unlike most digital servos, these are dead quiet in operation and completely w/o the typical digital buzz or squeal. I have a set in my scratch built stik I just completed.

My apologies to Tailskid for interrupting his thread. As I have more questions I feel I should start a new thread and go from there.
