If you can't find one at 3DHS or ADChobbyshop.com, then try http://www.graphtechrcshop.com/category.sc?categoryId=2. They list all of the dimensions, so you can usually find something that will work. Great quality gear too.

DLE-30 or OS GT33

I'm still in the build process of my 71" Slick Gas. This is my first gas plane and I have a new DLE-30 for it. Would it be worth the hassel to return the DLE-30 and J'Tec Pitts Muffler then get the OS GT33 if I can? Thanks!

from what the smith's are saying, if you can, go for the OS33. seems to have less issues (so far ) than the DLE 30, which ive seen quite a few issues with. once you get the DLE running well its great, but getting it to that point could be a headache if you arent profficient in gasoline burners

Thanks for the feedback. I have a gas Zenoah G230 in my Spectra-G helicopter. Haven't had any issues with that engine. This will be my first DLE-30 or OS gas engine in a plane.

We have had a couple flights on the OS33 and it has been truly flawless. It's definately worth the hassle imo. I will be sure to keep you guys updated as we get more flights on it.

Me and the 71 after my first flight on 8s Saturday! Couldn't ask for a better plane IMO.

Oh and that is the same smile that started as soon as it left the ground!

Where's that Video dagnabbit???! ! Keep the music low, we want to hear the OS.


Seriously, I am in torment trying to decide 71 Slick Gas or 6S/8S Electric. This OS might take out DLE-30 fears.

Spinner OS GT33

What Spinner works with the OS GT33? I have one for the DLE-30 but I don't think it will work. Thanks!
