I'd post a picture of my Meister Fw 190 D9, but all it is right now is a bunch of balsa boards, planks and sheets...


I'm still waiting for the glass fuse (Dino? PJ? You know I love you guys... I'm wanting my glass fuse!)

Lone star balsa is up and running. I have also had really good luck with Balsa USA

Can't have enough "Rita"... I've pretty much accepted that I will always have a "Rita" in the stable. Every time I pull the towel off the canopy I get the "Fuzzy Feeling" seeing the Rot 2 "Rita" hehehe

What engine(s) are folks putting in the D9?

I'd like to use my 3W106 but I'm pretty sure it won't fit.

GT-80 works with short plugs or a little strategic cowl flap openings for the stock setup. DA-85 would be a real powerhouse IMO. I'm currently installing a new GT-80 in Yellow 1. I will shoot some pictures after I get it mounted.

Here we go as promised... Pandi dropped off his Meister-Scale FW190 D9 "Yellow 1" after a fresh DuPont paint job by the Burleyman. My part in all this is to retrofit a brand new GT-80 "BIG ZENOAH" where a tired old Sachs engine was previously mounted. We will be incorporating new B&B Vibra-Loc vibration isolators into the install.

Got my pipe wrench and hammer back from the wife... Let's Get'R Done. Took my measurements and proceeded with removing the existing plywood engine spacer from the firewall and made my engine mounting template.

I picked up a BME100. Saw a thread on RCSB where the BME116 fit and this one is slightly shorter on the width. Should swing a very nice 3-blade

It's hard to tell to tell how much these rubber doohickeys are going to squeeze up but it's going to be close with the spinner / cowl clearance. Might need a couple of washers, might not.

The firewall on the airplane is 1/4" thick. We need at least 1/2" of meat for the isolators so I made a new sub-firewall from 1/4" plywood with 3/4" diameter holes to accept the Vibra-Loc isolators.

For the the first attempt at bolting the GT80 to the airframe, I decided not to open up the 3/4" diameter holes in the firewall just yet. Just in case I'm off center on the cowl I wanted to leave some wiggle room for adjustments.

After removing the plugs and bolting up the engine and cowl I discovered that I was DEAD ON CENTER!! WOW!!

The spinner back plate just barely clears the cowl face and as suspected will need a couple of washers between the isolators and the engine mount for additional clearance.

How I am doing Pandi?

Looking good David. This is how my fuel tank is mounted...notice the dowel and the front end of the plate which inserts into the firewall...then the back side of the plate mounts to the former just foward of the leading edge. I need to be sure the hole for the dowel remains clear...also the clearance on the back of the firewall of the mounting screws to not obstruct the fuel tank.

The old Blue 10 had 3 6.0 2700 MAH NICADS all mounted to the tank plate and secured. With the GT80 I no longer need the ignition Battery and have moved the RX Batts aft with A123 redundant system.

Default RE: RE:

Unbolted the GT80 from the airframe. I the opened up the firewall to accept the rear isolators using my Dremel and and a drum sander. I made some small 1/4" ply wood shims to fit between the engine and the isolators thus pushing the engine forward enough to achieve approx 1/4" clearance for the spinner back plate.

By the way... The best tools I could come up with for getting to the nuts on the inside was a good old prop wrench. Just hold the allen wrench with one hand and give it a good "Reach-a-Round" with the other.[sm=wink_smile.gif]
