3-3/4" is what I use with both the Dave Brown or Truturn Ultimate 4" spinner.

Default 91"EF extra upgrades

Took out the trusty DA60/RE2 power combo and installed a new DA70 mounted to 2 ES Composites 35 pipes. Also upgraded to a carbon rudder servo tray, new cowl with custom depron ducting, JR DMSS dual battery receiver, and fromeco DC up cricket! Got 5 break in flights on the plane Sunday .....after 150 or so flights......the 91 extra flys better then ever. Want to thank curtis from www.wildthinghobbys.com for the speedy service in suppling the parts for the conversion!

The dual pipe install was MUCH easier then on the 91 EF yak due to the larger pipe tunnel!

Looks great. Where did you get the depron for that? What thickness?

I ran mine on a gp 88 evo for awhile and the power is great but it is just to much weight for that plane flies better by quite a bit on a 60 and a pipe IMHO.

Thanks! Had some left over stock from Mike Morgan at DW foamies. ...9 mm! Tried to get the ones that EF sells on their website (and privately through gary Hoffman)...bUT they were out of stock.....so we got motivated and made our own! Have garys on my 104 and they work great!
