Yeah Demetri I put the cg at the factory setting and the result was to place the batteries below the rear cockpit....left the plane at level flying attitude. Hope this helps

You may want to go with the original firewall and cut the front of the cowl down to match up then add a piece of ply behind the engine to cover the cowl opening like I did....I used 1/4" cut to fit the opening of the cowl

Any updates on Stearman. Would also like to know how the Evo 160 is holding up and performing. Any long term issues with plane or motor?

All good...went through three valve adjustments over first hour of run time. Valves have been solid during following 10 flights. Keep valves within specified range or the pushrods will throw offf. It happened to another 160 at a fly in I attended. Airplane is awesome

i wanted to keep the rounded front, then I added a blister underneath to cover the little bit of firewall that showed.
came out real nice, after about 4 valve adjustments I have no problems, I always check the valves and I updated them
with the new push rods and pins. I adjust mine at .05 and could go as far as 9 before you would lose a push rod now
before the old style you would go 5.5 or .06 and you would lose one.

Beautiful aircraft. Would love to see more pics. Between you and Jimmy perhaps we could find out which evo sizeis best suited. Obviously both work well.

thank you for the nice comments, I am at 6000 ASL so I went with the 260cc did I need it NO, I fly about 1/4 throttle and when
I get to the end of the runway I just put it to about 3/4 and go vertical for ever. This plane would fly here just nicely on a 100cc
you won't have the vertical but it would fly very nice. so if you are thinking radial I would say the 160cc. But then again
you are not to far away for the 260cc well another 500 bucks so that is a jump that would by all your servos.

The 260cc does sound nice

maiden flight

You can order a complete decal package from Callie Graphics.
Very reasonable and great work.

Modifying the stock radial engine for better scale appearance. Will be using a RCGF-120 for cost and simplicity but need to do something about the cowl. The Williams Bros 1/4 scale Pratt & Whitney plastic kit cylinders are the same size as the stock square cowl cylinders. They get the needed diameter by oversizing the crankcase. I simply removed the square cylinders and started installing the scale WB plastic cylinders. In process of glueing in the bases with epoxy inside fiberglass case. Reinforce where needed then remove cylinders for painting & detailing. Glue back into base and complete other detailing such as push rods, plugs, wiring, exhaust etc.
Hope this helps.
Not perfect scale but better than stock I think.

I like the matt finish on the monokote film. Did you use fine steel wool or any cleaner on the film before you sprayed it with clear paint Jimmy?

The new UMS line of radial engines (same factory where evolution engines are made) have upgraded pushrods and better heat treatment on the cam lobes to prevent wear so help reduce frequent valve adjustments. They are available through CH Ignitions, the new US distributor and parts & service center in West Palm Beach, FL. Saw a bunch of new 5 & 7 & 9 cylinder offerings at the 2019 Toledo, OH Weak signals show! They will be on display at Top gun and Joe Nall events coming up this spring. chignitions.com.
