I found this on thingiverse and printed it over the weekend on a lark. It was a great fit and seriously reduced the amount of grass inside my Rebel. Whomever designed it has my thanks.Tone

Folks, can you please post up your interior layouts. I’ll be getting my plane in a month or two depending on shipping container availability. I’m pretty sure I have all the goodies to go in it. But it helps looking at other folks installs. Also helps in planning my install.

Ken….I’ve been trying to upload a photo re your request, and have just been able to do so. This is how I did my setup on my Rebel Pro.

Hello everybody!

I´m thinking about ordering a Rebel Pro. I know that the recommended engine range is from 180 N to 210 N but I certainly don’t need an engine in the upper range. My style of flying is gentle and taking use of dynamic energy in all manoeuvres and I generally think that many of our RC-jets are monstrously over powered. I also fly from a generous grass field.

I have a Kingtech 140 N G2 lying around and I wonder if that would be enough for a Rebel Pro?

Has any of you flown a Rebel Pro with a smaller engine than the recommended 180 N? And if so, what are your experiences?

And no, The Classic is not an alternative.

I don’t imagine many if any have flown with a smaller engine than a 180. The smallest I can see get used would be a 170. I plan on using a Swiwin 190 and have been told the plane flies well with a 190.

Consider this, the average finished build comes in at 43lbs. The Kingtech 140 produces 32lbs thrust. The Kingtech 180 produces 35lbs thrust. The Swiwin 190 that I plan on is at 41. Swiwin 220 is at 48lbs.

Low power needs a very efficient wing and light wing loading. Possible, probably… enjoyable… not likely.

Mine had a 210. It is well suited for the PRO especially on takeoff with a full tank. I think 190 would be marginal.

One must always consider altitude. You can lose 20% at 3000 ft. If you're at sea level, a 210 might be great. If you're at 3500 ft. MSL, you may want a 230ish in there.

I have a 190 SW in mine and I fly at 5000 ft . It has no problem. Just does not go vertical on take off. Dan
