Parts for front support of the engine. The firewall alone cant handle the massive weight

Looks great Tom. The install kit seems to make the job very easy. I will be interested to see how you deal with the cooling on this one.

Hi Tom,
Cool build! I see the new pipe for the IL230 engine. Is that pipe compatible with the IL150 also? Thats the first time Ive seen a pipe for these engines.
Looking forward to your build!

this is the silencer from the Galloping ghost/Strega. We make it fit for the spitfire.
Also the plan is to offer the same silencer for the IL150 and Il155.

Hope they sound good !

We will have bigger exit pipes to get more sound from the engine. Also we will have a functional exhaust system optional.

Support for the cowling ( will be cut in 2 parts because of the baffels), a layer of glass for the nose edge of the wing, and the fuel/smoke tanks with carbon holder

Cutted the cowling and the silencer took place. Now I have to find out where to make the exit pipes in future

Looking great Tom, will be following along closely as I am building one too, although I'm powering mine with the IL155. Waiting patiently for Michael to build it and ship it out, as I ordered it through Andy back in November..

Regards, Gary

What size fuel tank should I use for the IL155 Tom? I generally use a 32oz (about 1 liter) tank for 2 strokes but, I'm not sure what the fuel consumption is for the Kolm engines.

Thanks!

depends on your flying time :-)

i normally fly about 8 min. so with one liter you have plenty of fuel on board. i use 750ml for the 230 :-)
and i have 500ml in voodoo for the IL150
