RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

v-snap,

My Brison 3.2 weighs 68 oz. (plus or minus an ounce or two) with plug and ignition, Bisson pitts muffler, and 1650 mAh 4.8v NiMH. My guess is your 2.4 will be about 1/2-lb lighter and...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I think the MVVS is a much better choice than the Roto 35. The Roto is too big and heavy with too much power. The MVVS will be perfect. Good luck!

For $450 you can get a new G26 converted to electronic ignition by RC Ignitions (RCIGN1 here on RCU) with Abell RC side mount pitts muffler. All up weight including muffler is 46 oz. Swings an 18x6...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Can someone measure the width of the main gear at the fuselage and the height from fuselage to bottom of gear leg? Thanks!

Tram,

Don't use a 1.20 glow for the reviews sake, unless you have a 1.50/1.80 or similar lying around you can swap in after the review. A 1.20 just won't put a smile on your face!

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Tram,

The Zenoah G-26, 3W-24, MVVS 1.60, Roto 25, and RCS 1.40 all would be good for that plane. The G-26 is my pick due to its simplicity, price, ease of use, and the service available here in...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

His name is Pe Reivers. The only problem with going through him is because the dollar isn't worth jack right now the exchange rate (dollars to euros) is killer. The price from Pe is creeping to the...

MVVS 1.60. It has a front mounted carb also. I hear it is a strong runner. I'm looking at one for a P-47 I'm putting together.

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

Kevin,

No choke on your carb. You may need to have some kind of access hole to get in and block the mouth off with your finger or a cork, etc. when priming. A short length of dowel glued into...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

cadconversions,

If I'm not mistaken the FPE 1.3 has a Walbro carburetor with a choke. A velocity stack is not needed. If you do go with a velocity stack, they typically are mounted to the carb...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

extratorker,

Most other bipes I have come across have these figures:

bottom wing and stab: 0 degrees
top wing: -0.5 to -1.5 degrees

Your plane looks great. Good luck on your maiden!

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

I'm not sure they make Tygon in 3/32". The smallest I've come across is 1/8", which will work perfectly. I use either 1/8" or 5/32" on my 50cc gassers, it depends on what I have in my garage or...

RE: Carl Goldberg -- PITTS S12 MONSTER

1/8" tubing is fine. I would use the stock tank with a gas conversion stopper. Gas engines are typically more fuel efficient than a glow engine of the same or similar displacement. Good luck!
