Anything is possible...if its nose heavy I'll just use 2 prop bolts instead of 4. That's what the 3dhs fanclub would say to do...lol

Well my plans of that plane and the da50 have changed now since i ordered the yak55m and got that free rcgf32. I was shopping for a es composite tuned pipe for it but $200 for a 23" pipe is kind of steep...

WOW I think my ES pipe for the DA was about that much?! You should go electric and get a 5min. flight with an hour or so charging time in between flights!!

Well there's a few factors.. You would have to weigh the DL50, with a full tank of gas, and the gas airframe is heavier than the electric..

My motor weighs 1.31lb.. My batts, and ESC weigh 2.5lb..

I got a red black and yellow scheme. Bought the little 73" just to have something easy to toss in the car.

32cc and a 10 ounce tank will probably get close to 20miniute flights. I do 10 minutes on my 100cc edge and land with a little less then half a tank.. gas is the way to go!
