Need some advice on a new 30cc 3D plane.

    Went to the LHS to see if they can get me the plane. They are looking into it and will let me know.

    ha ha WOW! Ive heard of guys putting a DA50 on a Extreme Flight 76" MXS, the real question is how does it balance out? Overkill... most definitely, but true 30cc planes were closer to 70" when the 35cc came out... then they got a little bigger, people started putting 40cc engines up front. I think a DLE55 could work, but as long as you don't put a lot of lead in the tail to make it balance out.

    I put a wore out DL50 on my 78" Pilot Extra 330sc. Had to put weight (batts and lead) under the turtle deck to get it to balance. Ended up breaking the fuse in half in the air from a hard snap. If you can keep the majority of weight up front I say OK. If not you may end up stressing the airframe to failure as I did.

    Sorry have no experience with that set up but it sure will put a smile on your face. The only I can say is keep the speed down and do low and slow 3D.

    What is weight of the setup. Because I am building a profile plane with a 50cc trying to keep it as light as possible. It will come in at less than 13 lbs I want it to be floater. But I do have some concerns about the strength of the plane. Which will be discovered soon if it is ok. But it will never do a snap or anything violent like that. It was built to do low and slow 3D with more than enough power to just sit there on the prop.

    Overkill on that plane. They build nice and light with a DA35 on the nose and have tons of power with it to boot.
