Sorry to cut in with this. I just want to post a copy of my review on this thread for the folks that stumble across it looking for a new gasser.

Gotta’ put my two cents in as well. I have put about 50 flights in my 46GT. WOW WOW WOW!! Power? Yes, plenty! Ease of use? Flip, flip go fly!! Everyone at the club who comes in contact with the engine is very impressed with it.
And to top it all off, Scott dose every thing humanly possible to make sure you are happy with your purchase, and stay that way. When I stop and think of all of the time Scott has spent on the phone and online with me, helping with the goofy questions that I ask. I am sure that I have cost him more in his time than he made in profit on my purchase. Guess I’ll have to buy more to make up for it.
Get one, or two, or six, you will be happy!!

Thanks for all your help Scott
Brian

Really enjoying my B46! I had a little issue with the Hall sensor wire and had it out of the H9 Extra for some time, but recently put it into my new RC Guys Super Decathlon.

Perfect combo, and running just great. Just choked it for about 6-8 flips the first time, then started on the first flip every time after that for a total of about 9 flights today. I didn't tach the idle, but it's way slow and rock steady.

Thanks, Larry. The B46 is perfect for this model, that's for sure.

FWIW, I also tried for the first time the carbon fiber carb plate from Troy Built Models, in lieu of the static nipple and fuel line running back inside the fuselage. The engine runs perfectly in all attitudes so I guess it works, though it's hard to say if it would have worked with nothing, but at least there's another option.

The plate material really doesn't matter (as long as it doesn't melt) but it has some aluminum spacers that hold it about 3/32" above the little pressure equalizing hole in the carb.

Personally, I would call Scott and get one of his aluminum mounts. Any fiber mount, vibration or not is going to take a beating. The motor will get smoother after your first few tanks. I think you will end up with a headache with that mount.

No snow here at present, but if there were I'd still be flying with skis!

Flying tomorrow anyway, with a high of 34*F and very light winds. Just gotta know how to dress properly for the cold weather.

There's no snow here either, we got a couple of inches a week ago, and there's just a few lumps left in the shadows and stuff. I guess we're "whipped" down here... if its windy or cold, stay home. There are still many weekends during the winter when you can get out that it just doesn't make sense to fight bad weather.

I'm going out on Sunday for the first time in about 2 weeks. I just finished up an Aeroworks biplane and have only flown it one day. I also finished an Extreme Composites Edge 540 that's never been off the ground yet. Gotta get those dialed in before Springtime.

As for the Wild Hare, I guess that was the 28% size? I don't know the weight or wingspan on that plane. It will probably fly with the 46, but probably wouldn't be a 3D machine. The 46 certainly has enough torque to get it up and around a few circles.

Scott... I'm thinking about putting the 46 in a side-mount profile plane... do you guys have (or could you make) a side mount muffler the 46? Just checking.

i can make a muffler however you need it. I made one for my buddies 50 that was in a profile. It is just a matter of moving the outlet pipe.

I went looking for this post to ask the same question reyn just asked!

I am thinking of putting 46 in the OMP 80 inch [link=http://www.ohiomodelplanes.com/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=342]fusion[/link] profile. This plane has 1360 squares of wing area and should come in around 13 lbs.

works much better with a 20x8 or 21x8... 22x8 is too much loud and spool time suffers

Thanks for the come back. Spool time is very important so I will not go with the 22 however 2 more inches would be nice to get past the fat cowl. Noise to me is not at all important. IN FACT THE LOUDER THE PROP THE BETTER, I LOVE THE SOUND.

Hi Guys, was wondering about this thread myself, Have a B46, and i love it. Had some issues with the velocity stack, but realised later that it was a cowl interaction issue, Now it runs fine and the engine feels solid. I have run a number of props on this one, and i have concluded that a Menz 20x8 is the best in terms of transition, thrust etc. Scott provides by far one of the best services in the hobby. i want to get a 50 for my Composite arf, however since i am based in India, will have to wait for the monsoon to pass. Flying Field looks like a lake for now. Embarassingly have opted for a Great Planes Seawind EP, to tide over for a while. Hobby's great, however wish it was cheaper though.

Ravi Kothari,

A buddy of mine tried an Airwild NX 21x8 I had laying around it really worked well.

I have personally found the 21x8 in the 74" Yak to be better for rolling harriers etc. However for hovering the throttle was just too low and I liked hovering with a 20x8 much better.

Here is some hovering from last years Huckfest.. testing out Mike's Yak for him while being filmed by Fred M from higherplane productions using the heli you will see flying around. Unfortunately it didn't have enough aileron to stop it from torque rolling so I just had to keep up with it. Little bit of a handful but was fun all the same

I'm looking at this plane to replace a Great Planes 25% Yak that I just augered in (plane is trashed but my Brillelli is O.K., that’s all that matters). Do you think you could get enough on the ailerons to stop the torque roll on that Yak?

Nice flying by the way!! And the music selection, right on the money!!!!

Love the engine
Love the service!!!!!!!!

If you want LOUD and INEFFICIENT, put a Zinger on there

Hey, Jake, if you have a chance to speak with Scott, wish him best wishes from me and, if you can, get a rough idea of how the backlog is coming along. My B46 has gotta be in there somewhere!

bmadden... Thanks! Oh ya it has more than enough ailerons available. However I didn't setup the plane, just was trying to help him get the engine tuned and plane setup. I have flown a couple of those.. great plane for the 46 and you can get any throws you want with one.


cmoulden will do.
