Salmon on your latest plane I see from the bottom view of the plane the opening is more up by the cylinder of the engine. Does this provide better cooling of the Engine or access to the motor? I am in the process of mounting my motor and can't wait to fly it also did you mount your ignition,battery and switch in the cowl?

The engine cooling ducting should be similar to that of any cowled gas plane. That means you want about double the exit area as the intake area. Keep in mind the intake area is not the entire square cowl opening as the spinner blocks much of that area. I like the exit area below and behind the engine so that the air flow over the cylinder, down, and out. Also if you run a pipe then you'll need some air flowing over the pipe and out the back end of the pipe.

The ignition, battery, and switch are all mounted in the engine box area inside the fuselage all the way up behind the firewall. Keep this stuff as far from the radio gear as you can. Use a nylon pushrod for the throttle.

I use zero up/down thrust and 2 degrees of right thrust.

I was looking for a profile plane after i seen one at a fun fly last summer after seeing OMP'S Hybrid on there web site I had to have it. I found the thread and read all there was to read and build my plane. Now I need to get and engine and have been looking at the First Place Engine but think that I should get the 4.2 to have the extra power.

4.2 should be ok as I've seen the G62 and even a 3W75 up in the nose.

Here is my finished plane. Special thanks to B&E graphics as they did an awsome job, and are darn cheap too. Brison 4.2 for power. Haven't flown it yet but will soon.

Wow Bryan, those graphics really are dang impressive! You might want to offer that package to other Hybrid builders! The Brison 4.2 is about 68cc or so isn't it? That's going to be a powerhouse I'm sure. How did you decide to run the exhaust setup?

What's the weight?
What did you use for a muffler?

I'll post a pic of the nose with the muffler. The weight is about 18.5 pounds on digital fish scales that have always been pretty accurate.

Anybody can buy those decals, They just need to contact B&E graphics. I can get you in touch with them if someone wanted. I also have a 40 size omp yak all decked out with their stuff and it too has OMP all over it. It's to the arf stage as I haven't finished it but can post a pic if you all would like to see it too.

Thanks for the good comments guys. I hope to really get to wring her out sometime soon.

I did get to maiden the thing a Sunday. It flew great although it was very windy. Flies like a great big trainer. Harriers are good. Didn't try inverted yet but will. TR's way to easily. I think it flies about like a giant foamie! In a good way. Veyr stable easy to fly airplane. Lands slower than most gliders! If I get a chance to fly it agin with little wind maybe I can get some in flight pics. But I will sya this I do like the plane so far. the 4.2 is a perfect match for power.

I was there with capthis and SMALLFLY for the maiden this past Sunday. This thing is a hog, one massive piece of lumber and I might add one beautiful plane. All the control surfaces are hugh and maxed out as I suspected. The graphics are awesome and the Brison 4.2 fits like a glove on the business end. It was very windy on Sunday but with a few minor adjustments the Hybrid took to the air as if it were a calm day. Cappy is right, it looked like it took off by it's self and landed very slow like a trainer. I'm not into big planes but if I was, this would be the ticket. Nice job dude

Thanks, next time it is out and it's not so windy your going to fly it. That way we can get you hooked on big planes too. [8D]

Hey be sure to have that beast at the Pro Bro event in Evansville! I still miss mine a lot and have to start building one as soon as I get time??????? Now 18.5 lbs seems a bit heavier than I'd expect. How much extra weight do you think the 4.2/muffler combo adds over a DA50 with pipe setup? My flamejob Hybrid I had last year was 16.25 lbs with that setup.

Mike, I spoke with you at the Toledo Hobby Show. I finally got my Hybrid together. Haven't flown it yet (waiting for batteries) which should be in by next weekend. I have the 4-2 First Place Engine in it. You were interested in knowing how it flys with that engine. I will keep you posted. Here are a few pictures of the completed plane.
