"IT WILL NEVER FLY ORVILLE"


can't find much on that plane, but most planes with that wing span, use atleast a 20cc engine!

this one is a lil bit bigger and thats what they recomend!http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...arehouse_.html

that is what i guessed, model is pretty damn limited to engine choice, it says 10-15 2t nitro or 15-20 ccm 4t nitro, but any engine with a bit longer muffler wont fit, i have a some unknown hype69 engine, but muffler is disaster, i also have crrc pro 26 ccm gas engine , but its asking for a too long bolts, the model is made for 4t nitro engine..and thats it, thats why i tought using this FL-70
