Default cannisters for composite aircraft 2.6m

Guys I would appreciate some help. I would like to use cannisters with the DA100 that is going in the CA 330L 2.6m. Is there a cannister system that has been proven to work and what is it?
Thanks Moose Man

mosse man , If you are interested in good cans call Desert Aicraft. They make the DA 100 and have the most K&S muffler stuff. I just recently bought a K&S system for a 3w 150 , in a G+L Hobbies Ultimate 10-300.

K&S or PEFA are the two most common. Both work very well.

I have a pair of K & S cannisters in mine, and know of a couple of others with them. They work a treat and are easy to install. Can't remember the K&S part number off the top of my head though.

Looking at the PEFA though, I reckon the two K&S are easier to install than the single large PEFA cannister.

Regards

Rob, can you send some pictures of your installation ? They would be much appreciated. Also maybe some details, like where they exit, how you contained the heat, how close did they come to the wing spars, how you did the headers and so on...

Thanks,
Craig.

Default DA sold me

the MTWs for my 3w-106, they are just perfect for the plane and the engine. I assume that they will be goo for the DA as well.

FC26 - do you actually have these installed in a 2.6m FC/CA Extra ? If so, could you please post some pictures.

Thanks,
Craig.

I too am interested to see if there is a lot of space to install canisters or if it needs modifying.

Default RE: cannisters for composite aircraft 2.6m

I have installed a set of the new 3W canisters in my Composite ARF Extra 2.6. These are very similar to the KS canisters and also the PEFA canisters if you go for the dual muffler setup. PEFA also has a 2->1 but apparently this isn't very efficient. Note that 3w used to sell the PEFA canisters with 3W engines but they now have their own design which is supposed to produce even less noise and give better performance.

Installing any of these systems in this plane is simple and straight forward and there is plenty of space. The september issue of the German magazine Modellflug International has a review of this plane with a DA-100 and KS mufflers installed. I haven't flown my own yet but will try to take some pictures and post them.

Regards
Allan

Default RE: cannisters for composite aircraft 2.6m

Here are some photos - most were on my disk from researching the canister installation on my 40% Carden Extra 330s. I can't give proper credit since I didn't write down where I got them from. These are for mounting in a Carden Extra, not a composite, but it may give you some ideas. Hope this helps....

You should have a heat shield between the muffler and the landing gear. Anything above 350 degrees will soften the resin in the gear. In that plane the pipes are very close.

FC26,

Thanks for those pics. I'm about to install cannisters in my 2.6m in the next couple of days.

Do you think I need to cut vents in the underside of the fuselage for cooling?

Default RE: cannisters for composite aircraft 2.6m

Hey guys I just put the DA 100 in my 2.6 CA extra. The cans to use are the MTW get them from DA also you are looking to use the 50mm drop pipes I spoke with DA and you can cut the lenth of the pipe down to 9". If you use this conbination it will fit in the A/C perfectly. Also when you order this set up from DA get his light ply former you can take this former and bolt it to the front of the landing gear support. After you bolt the former to the support take you dremel sanding wheel and sand the former to the same cut out in the can support. I will try to take some photos of this set up in the next few days but it really came out nice and didi not take away any strengh from the A/C.
