Beautiful build! I've been trying to figure out what the tubing wrapped around the exhaust is for. Do you have a smoke system installed? If so, how does the DLE20 do with it?

I have not used it before, sorry. I'm just filing away techniques to try in the future. I've always just used finishing epoxy with peel ply. I'll probably do the same on my smoothie.

Thanks for your informative response DHC6. Sounds like the 80" Bates Hellcat might be a better match. Anyone know if the 84/90 fits within the cowling on that bird?

Does anyone have experience with this engine (90R3) in a 95“ size warbird like a Ziroli or big Bates Hellcat? Is it enough power and does it fit in the cowl?
Thanks!

Strange indeed. Have you been over to rcscalebuilder.com? There are many excellent scale builders on there that could probably help. Many of the actual kit designers are on there also.

Did you ever get this 4 cycle engine running with a prop? I'm curious how it sounds and if it is much different than a 2 stroke gasser.
