    Spent a little time looking up the Valach 250 that is one nice motor and it has valve covers and push rod tubes so it does it’s own lubrication properly, I like that some body is doing some good engineering. Let me know when you get one.

    Ended up going with the Turnigy 5000 6S 60C from HK, couldn't beat the price anywhere else for the size and shipping was free when I bought three.... and these particular Lipos had a good rep. They gained 1-1.5min of flight time in comparison to my 4200's and overall no performance loss or gains. So a 7.5 minute flight the packs were at about 20% with mild aerobatics.

    This plane does great pop-tops, blenders are super easy, will do a mesmerizing waterfall, and other things a high wing shouldn't do. The flight envelope is very wide. I need to play with props a bit more, but as of now I think it may be under propped. It would be cool if they made a 35cc version of this plane, it really is a winner despite my initial thoughts on this bird.... I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sunday flier but wants a little more excitement from time to time.

    Oh my! I had a Bob Dively Super Stearman but never got to finish it. Kids came first. Mine was the 1/3rd scale. I believe the top wing was like 112 or 116 inch. Been too many moons ago. What is the wing span of the 1/4 scale?

    And I know I'm going to ask, so might as well get the question out of the way now. What would you take for it?

    Installed a new carby and did a reed mod to my buddies DLE 35RA on his Demonstrator. It cleaned up the bottom end "burble" and transitions smooth as silk now. He said he "LIKEY" :). He "LIKEY" so much he is going to "Let me" fix his QQ300 o_O.

  6. The 1/4 scale is a 96" ws. As for a sale price, uh, uh uhhhhhh, don't know if I could actually do it much less what I'd let it go for.

    LoL nether did I Rob.......But I did get it fixed up for him. Don't think it can take another "Punch in the nose" and be ready for round 6 :concern:.

    It will still "float like a butterfly" but the sting like a bee ??? :beaten: .

    No? Huh! I've had it since new outta the box '15. I maidened it originally with a GP176 EVO in February of that year. Shortly thereafter I swapped the 176 for the beast "Dub" 170. Love this plane for deals.
