Got quite a few flights in on my 14lb, P47 Thunderbolt with one of these wee sweeties up front, easy starting, excellent throttle response and great value for money.

Sounds like you have a canny set-up going on there Euan and I suppose it's nice to have confidence in a motor, especially on a busy tug.

Hi Euan, how's things. I bet that Cub is kept busy so that motor will certainly be getting a good work-out. I'll get my backside down sometime soon hopefully and bring the Fox along too.
Cheers...

Thats my plan if things start to go "pear shaped" with this motor, just swap the parts but fingers crossed for now.

I didn't care much for the supplied plug either so this was swapped out straight off.

RE: KMP F8-F Bearcat

looking at the specs, I think that should be more than enough engine for the bearcat.

RE: New 81

I don't think a 50cc would be a tight fit, it would be the exhaust that may be a problem unless you go for a wrap around pitts style. I had a 3W 40cc in mine and it looked a bit lonely.;)

RE: GAS Saito

Hi Mike, give it a go. It would be a shame not to. I have had a H9 150 size P47 and it is a lovely plane to fly. I had an old 3W 40 in it and it was over powered really but fly scale at 1/2 throttle...

RE: GAS Saito

Hey Mike, the fg36 and H9 p47 150 is a good combo, there are some good vids on youtube, if you can get it running right that is. I had mine in a EF Yak 54 74" w/s and it was great fun.

Hi Tomas, I sold mine after 30 or 40 very enjoyable flights and I am now busy with a 1/5 scale FW190 and a YT International Hellcat.

RE: New 81

Hi Tomas, merry Christmas to you and a happy new year when it comes. That was lovely flying and if you keep landing like that you will be using that undercarriage for a very long time.

I would imagine they will be. Do you already have them? I have had two of these birds and put Sierra's in both, drop in and superb.

RE: GAS Saito

I totally agree with you there Ed, horses for courses. Oh and by the way, the FG36 is around £700 or $1100 over here.

RE: GAS Saito

I agree with you, the T240 is a canny plane, flew it on a 90 2/stroke glow for a while and it was a decent trainer. Think it will be a bit more energetic with this motor in.
