Home for a 450 Turbo


...i was going to put a Permax 450 turbo in my Zagi, but after a bit of deliberating, i am now thinking about building a ship specifically to house this motor. What are some of the planes/setups that you guys are currently running yours in? Anyone feel there is a certain application perfectly suited for it?

...as always, all 'zoners' comments are valued and appreciated.

How about one of the House of Balsa 1/12 scale warbirds? It should really scream on one of those motors and 800ARs

This looks like a nice match too!

I have a 450 turbo in my pico jet combat, using 8x800ar cells and a master airscrew 6x4 reversed (flipped over) prop. It really screams - higher top speed, but shorter duration than a permax 480 with graupner "zagi" prop.

That's what I'm thinking of putting in either my HOB 1/12 P47, or the Pica 1/12 FW190.

Does Sig still do the Hummer ?

I shortened the nose by about 2'', put in a 450 Turbo, 8x700 cells and a 6x4 prop.

Cheap and flew great !
