I believe he's referring to the fact that the pump face has 4 nipples on it and requires the use of "Y" festo fittings to tie them together to meet the fuel demand of the larger turbines. But for me...

I have an 85 in a 13.25lb dry weight jet and find the power to be 'just right'. If I can't accelerate vertical after an upline snap, I'm underpowered!

I got to fly mine against a non-EVO with a 140N turbine just like mine. It's amazing the speed difference. He had an easy 20-25mph on me. Might have to put my 170 in mine:cool:

Kinda like an Ultra Flash rebirth! I only have 6 flights on my Evo, but not for a lack of like! I was flying so low and fast the last flight that birds on the ground were running for cover!

mine, at 22.5lbs, with a 170, I had to listen to my timer beep on and off the whole flight - it's set to start/stop at 1/4 throttle! But imo, it's awesome! Nothing quite like accelerated vertical!
