    Hello Nick,
    Thank you very much for the Baffles, today I printed a prototype as a test 3d, it looks very good. I have to wait until the motor is here to then print the final version made of heat-resistant pla.
    I also sent you a donation
    best regards Andreas

    WOHOOOOO!!! Looks great! How did everything line mesh up for you? Note the little bow incorporated on the outboard side where the fiberglass overlaps - was that helpful for you as well? Makes me happy to see my design in action! Thanks for the tip too!

    One of the things I really enjoy about his site and the modeling community. Always learning and sharing ideas.
    Great work Nick and Andreas!

    This thread isn’t dead!

    I’ve been lacking weather and time to run the GP76. Today I got that time!

    Got it running well enough for a flight, all systems check good. Just need to install my baffles and vent the lower cowl a bit. Never ran a canister before and it definitely takes the twap out of the exhaust noise and a considerable reduction in the high notes. I took some video, we’ll see if I have anything to make out of it. Excited to take her up.

    Very Cool! I like that tail insignia too ;) @pawnshopmike
    I've never been into logo graphics on my airplanes, just scale stuff mostly. The colors are really nice on this bird. I don't trust the blue metallic stuff when it comes to longevity.
    BTW that Pilot Slick looks like a nice ARF as well!!

    For the baffles, I've been toying with the idea of using my 3DPrinted Baffles as templates/molds for carbon fiber baffles.

    Hi

    I have just bought the same plane so this is a very interesting thread for me. Very good job you have done.
    I am curious if you have done any adjustments to the angles the firewall is delivered with? And also when you have tried it, if you consider the right/up/down thrust as correct.

    What is the final total weight?

    Thanks for the kind words! And welcome to GSN!

    I have not flown the plane yet due to winter not allowing my flying spot to open up. I don’t foresee any issues with the stock thrust angles. I have yet to weigh the plane.
