Default Yellow Aircraft F18 Twin (one engine) thrust pipe

Hey guys,

Building a YA F18 twin but with a single turbine. Turbine of choice is either a Kingtech 210 G4 or a jets munt 210.
I have the Tamjets pipe, with an inlet diameter of 3.5 inches, if i recall this pipe was designed for 160-180, but i cannot find an accurate reference.
Anyone try the Jettech USA thrust pipe, seems more substantial than the Tam pipe?

Regards
Loukis

I flew several Yellow Twins and the Tam pipe was what I used in single engines. I flew them on both twins and singles

I flew them in AMT 180, Jetcat 120's and one other 100 class engines. I think they do best one big single engine 40lb plus class

Yes, Gary does make Y-Pipes.

He worked with me to build my custom pipes for the Buccaneer and he was a pleasure to work with. Build quality of the pipes is excellent.

Agreed on the turbine size, my question is if the tamjets pipe with the quoted diameter is ideal for the 200 class turbines

Just pulled it the other day.

Loukos, you may reach out to Hiep - he used to make the pipes for Tam - and see if what you have will take that size turbine. can someone post his contact email?

Found some old notes that said the Olympus pipe was 3.57 inches at bellmouth and 2.9 inches at inner pipe at tail.

Hope this helps
