OS FT120 twin

Gen I FT120. Set up with RCEXL ignition. Turns over smoothly/no roughness felt, but bearings are gummed up some--see pics. Only bench run, first on glow, then on ignition. Very low time, compression...

I have both; the VV20 was slower to break in, and was disappointing at first. It only turned a 17x6 Xoar beech at about 7800. My brand new DLE20 turned the same prop 82-8300 out of the box. ...

I had that plane last year for about 125 flights before I dumb-thumbed it; replaced it with the 60" Laser. Used Spektrum A5040's in both, which I liked for a while due to low price and digital/MG. ...

Here's a link to a vid with Joe Smith on a 71" Slick/OS33 with stock muffler. According to the comments, he was running a Falcon 18x9. It sounds similar to mine on the 20x6 Xoar; some prop rip, but...

I own one; no db figures but in comparison to any other stock muffler gasser I have or have heard, it is much quieter. I would equate the sound to a large glow engine with stock muffler. I ran a...

I was thinking of the original Tclips on floats; anyone done that setup? Now though, the new 70" version has me re-considering! :) Any word on price for the 70?

Bill, the new 21cc appears to use the angle plug cylinder from the VV40--should make a much more compact package to fit more cowls. You should buy one and we can flight test it! ;)

RE: **Seagull Nemesis** The need for speed build thread!!

That's a sweet looking setup! Did you have those custom made with the turned down front entry tubes and bottom exit tubes? Does anyone distribute those in N America? [8D]

RE: Katana 50 disscontinued ?

Not sure what happened with the Katana 50; it sure wasn't around long! Horizon blew 'em out for $99 bucks a few months ago; they were a sweet deal at that price!

Now THERE's a good plan of attack! A good foamy, and a good balsa profile, are great learning tools that are MUCH easier on the wallet, so you can fly your pretty 30cc and up plane later with less...
