Default Titan .21 Questions

I was wondering if anyone had any opinions about the The Titan .21 from aeromarine. I was thinking of building one, slowly of course. Also I was leaning towards the O.S. .21 RG-MX

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXALL9&P=0 for a sport engine not for racing.

[8D] Thanks for any advice

they seem to be a nice little hull. Havent seen any run that were nitro powered, but have seen video of a FE one that was pretty quick. A bit unstable at full bore but that could be all in the setup.

Was it well contructed in the glass layup? Does the engine posted above seem to be good for the craft?

I had one. It's a very light hull, you'd almost think that it was plastic. I got one of of the first from Remy himself and got the wrong instructions as he gave me the ones for the Challenger, two different animals.
Use his drop-down engine mounts or use the Speedmaster parts. The Aeromarine trim tabs and a lot of the other Aeromarine parts you'd might as well toss out the window as they don't fit this hull at all so your best bet is to run Speedmaster all over it..
Mine had severe handling problems over half throttle with a Nova Rossi installed, mostly chine-walking. By the time that I got it sorted out, I already had the Speedmaster 21 hull ordered.
Let's see if I can find some old pix of it. Ignore the ugly person in the shots.

That would be a very good engine for it.
If you oder directly from Aeromarine or one of their dealers, not all the hardware is bad. I use their antenna tubes and mounts, their flex cables and stuffing tubes are great and the drop-down engine mount looks to be very good.
