Most, if not all of the NSRCA districts are on Facebook. There are always listings of used 2 meter pattern planes. Always 2 or 3 good deals at any given time.

I set it at 1/4" behind the wing tube. Never was able to fully remove knife edge pull no matter where C/G was set, mixed it out.

That's where I had mine. This plane is very tolerant to C/G location.

Something is wrong with the Rossi. Even in thin air, the rpm's should be closer to 15,000 with a 11-7.5 prop...a little less with an 11-8. That is why the thrust is so low.

My Curare clone tips the scale at 9 lbs. I have a Rossi 61re on a pipe and an 11-7.5 prop., turning 15,800 on the ground. It flies VERY fast and has almost unlimited vertical. Something else is not...

Peter, my throttle delay is about the same on down-throttle, a little less delay on up-throttle. I will boost my normal flight rpm.

Thanks, Gary

I don't know of a way to check static or downline rpm's on a V4. I have to assume it's about half of mid-stick, which is about 3,000-3,200/2 = 1,500-1,600? I understand that braking, regardless of...

I am running a D3 esc on my V4 and I am somewhat concerned about the prop noise on "braking". I run the typical 22X20 and 22X22 props. I am learning to slow my throttle transitions on down-lines, but...

I'm gonna give one a try. I am curious if the governor helps me with the up and down line speed consistency. Seems popular in Europe. I just hope it holds up in the Texas heat...lol

Hi Mike..

I did the conversion, and it mounted with no issues. Once you figure it out, watch the motor temperature. I found that mine ran significantly hotter when front mounted. May not be an...

I received my motor, and then checked the weight. Mine is at 628 grams. I was hoping it would have been as advertised: 580 grams. How does everyone's weight measure?

I don't think any 2 stroke gas engine will ever have the torque of a 4 stroke YS. The mid-range punch of the YS is awesome, especially the 185 and 200.

Thanks. Just the ability to pull the drive without major disassembly is worth the change. If it's quieter, even better.

Man, I would love to slap my Contra in that. Looks like this shape will be the new thing. Don't really see a cross-wind problem, as long as the aircraft is properly proportioned.
