Awesome!

I'll be waiting for your GT33 flight report before making a motor decision.

You'll be the FIRST I know of with one of those motors....I'm very curious to hear what you think of it. According to the weight shown on the Specs section of tower's site vs. the weight of engine/ign/muff from the DLE30 manual, it'll be about 6oz heavier than a DLE.....that's not much if it's got the POWAH!!! You know we expect video soon...right....
yup, I'm curious about all this myself

I may have to round up a DLE to really compare...

Silver is better.....it's science

+1 ...not to mention it's also the one that the chicks are clearly more attracted to... silver is the pantie-off plane, no doubt...

It's killing me that I'm going to have to wait until the next shipment to order mine!

But I did order a couple servos for the wings of my 103". On the deck, high speed passes are in my future!

So is there a 58" thread started yet? I do believe I have found my next plane.

Matt
when they get closer to their ETA, when we have prototypes flying, etc etc... we'll get the thread going then

A friend of mine had lots and lots of trouble with his GT-55, and bad service from Hobby Services to boot. Despite occasional problems I think the DLE 30 may be the best 30cc option at the moment.

I've been curious about the OS Gassers.. Cant wait to see more.

As for the prop mount... YOu can buy a bolt on adapter for the DLE30 that will give you the same style prop mount, without having to drill the prop.

I've been wanting to try one out, but haven't pulled the plug yet.

Me too!!! I was all ready to pull the plug on this one, but I'm going to have to wait....

I don't foresee a great deal of flying time for me until after winter anyways... Hopefully by then I'll be caught up at work!! If not, surely they'll fire me by then, and I'll have plenty of flying time!!

I saw a guy with a Saito 36cc 4-stroke gas engine in a Decathlon not long ago. The engine sounded great running. Used an NGK cm6 plug. Sounded more like a tractor instead of the zippy throttle response that I'm used to but I don't know how he had it propped.

$750 is a little steep for me though.

I know a guy who bought that single bolt prop adapter and he is very happy with it.

Good, busy, no added media, but I'm sure that you guys are going to love the airplane. Very solid design, and superb performance. You guys are going to love this one.

let us know when it's the Stoops off-season... should go flying some time


looking forward to loving this one. I got my 3D footing on the 47 Edge, I'm completely psyched about this one!
