Default Should I buy aWebra .32 or webra .36

I am consisering putting either a webra .32 or the new webra .36 on Jerry Smith Outlaw (speed plane) Does anybody know, if the mounting holes are the same. I plan on using a moosecan for muffler. According to the horizon hobbies, I can get a webra .36 for 99.95 w/0 muffler. Or the .32 w/ muffler for 109.95. But I don't plan on using the muffler anyway since I plan on using the moosecan. So I can save me $10

Also where can I find the best deal on a webra .32 or .36. Can you post links to company.

Remember the .32 is a ABC engine, and the .36 is a ring engine. For my money I would still go with the .32. Tom

I am still leaning more toward the .32, but I was thinking the .36 would give me a little more punch. The .36 weighs less than a .75oz more.

In the new horizon book, they say the webra .36 has ABN. That wouldn't make it a ringed engine would it.

According to the latest issue of "Horizon Quarterly", there are (for now at least) 3 engines available - I think that's where the confusion is arising from.

1.) The Webra Speed .32 - ABC (ABN?) non-ringed.

2.) The Webra .35 Aero - Ringed.

3.) New engine - the Webra Speed .36 - ABN non-ringed.


I just chose the .35 Aero for my next Outlaw..... last one had an unfortunate encounter with a bean field. Was running an OS .32SX upright.... had fuel flow issues but ran okay. Decided on the rebuild to go with a Webra where I can rotate the carb and side-mount the engine like I should have in the first place.

I debated between the .32 and the .35, then got my Horizon Quarterly announcing the ABN .36.... great a third choice! Decided on the .35 as it was supposed to be the same weight as the OS .32. Surprise, weighed it when it arrived, it's .75 ounces LIGHTER than advertised - advertised at 9.5 ounces, weighed mine at 8.75..... not complaining! To 'verify' my scales, I also weighed the OS.... 9.5 ounces.

Not sure about the mounting dimensions. I checked with Horizon product support regarding the muffler mounting dimensions since I already had the header for the OS .32 which, according to Jerry Smith, is also the same header for the Webra .32. Wondered if it would also fit the .35 - they said that the 'exhaust dimensions' were the same for the Webra .32, .35, and (I believe) the .36. They were correct, the same header for the .32 fits the .35.

Webra .36 is the same pattern as the .32 and .35. there are three engines now to chose, the 35 being ringed. The 36 is NOT ringed and yes I would recommend that over the other two. Good luck with the outlaw, Jerry does good flying his.

the West 36 IS a Webra 36, only the West came first, Webra just like it alot, it was bassed on the Webra 35 ringged engine and the prototype was rinnged as thats all they had.
the West 36 comes with a rear backplate option that has cooling fins and also mounts directly to your firewall, very handy on the Outlaw.
Currently mines running a Leo 37 but i've got a West on the way for it.
The West also runs best on the Weston UK mini pipe to get the propper rpm figures from it, throttle pipes wont do, it's timed wrong. the one i do have is on a Leo muffler and runs great, but i'm a few K under it's propper figures.

The outlaw is so much more than a sped ship, a OS32 is also a great choice and will give you the very best in it's lightweight funfly ability also, mines been prophanging before and i even had a tail.... tip touch

Hi. I had (have) a 32 that I loved with that weird sliding carb. Broke the crank in a crash. Just bought the 36 (not 35). Still in the box.

volum ccm / cu in 5.80 / 0.36

power PS / KW in 1.50 / 1.10

rpm 1/min 2500 - 18000

bore mm 19.45

stroke mm 19.50

weight g 268.00

system of control front intake

porting Schnürle

ballbearing 2

liner piston set ABN

http://www.webra-austria.at/motor.ph...r=AERO&lang=EN

Has anyone tried it?

What sort of muffler? (the one for the 32 broke as well)

I have an old muffler from an OS 25 FSR that fits, but I am afraid it is a bit small. Suppose the one I had for the 32 not is much larger.

The engine looks and feels like a 25 with a tall cylinder. Amazing.

Any prop/rpm/fuel figures?

Jon

Seen Jerry fly at the Dayton DOGS fly in ,the 32 had why then enough power. Jerry just dropped the Outlaw and it took off, and I do mean took off. He had the Webra 32, and if memory serves me right an 8x4 prop.Boy did that thing move.

I run the Webra 35 Aero in my Diamond Dust together with the Macs pretuned pipe for the OS 32. Its a strong engine and tachs an APC 8x8 in the 17 to 18k range on the ground. As a comparision the Irvine 36 with an Ultrathrust muffler on my Fazer turns a widepaddled Grish 11x4 at 13k+.

The Irvine is another engine that should be on your 'consider' list btw. They are a joy to own.

the Leo 37 RPM or SF are much better than the 39, and mega cheap.
