Hey guys. I picked up a 78" extra over the winter and just got a good deal on the Eflte power 160 and a CC 160 esc. Anyone have pics of this motor mounted on this airframe?
Thank you

Do I need any standoffs for this setup.
Thanks again.

For those who want a nice DA35 install in the extra, Stand offs must be 61mm and you must have a dremel, 2 hours and patience of a real man
I went pull pull all the way on mine, I don't like the geometry of linkages of 2 servos in the tail, plus I saved about 150 grams with this trick.

I really like the auto-connect aileron plugs ins'/fittings to the fuse/wing.
Where can I get some?

Espit, they are called MPX. Major pita do get them right in the wings to plug in nicely. I have been doing this for years, so got a hold of it by now, first time was a paiiiin

Default Setup with DLE 35RA

After a long thought about DLE-35RA vs DA35 vs VVRC40, I pulled the plug on the 35RA.

Setup. All 7955 with SWB's. Powerbox SparkSwitch. DLE35RA stock muffler. Single Duralite 2600 mah Li-Ion.

The setup is a monster with only half a gallon broken through.

Canopy tinted using Tamiya PS-31 smoke (made a separate thread for that).

The Secraft Side Servo Mount does a beautiful job for mounting the throttle servo. Also made a custom CF Rx tray.

Here are the pics.

Nice setup! I have been thinking about replacing the dle 30 in mine with one of the 3 motors you mentioned. What prop are you using?

i'm using 19x8 xoar for the first couple of gallons.....will try a 20 after.....

to be honest, the 35RA is an equally good motor if not better.....and much cheaper.....the power is already awesome and its only run about half a gallon....initially running redline at 30:1

btw, it easily fits with the supplied standoffs....you might need to sand this bottom extrusion with some light sanding paper to accommodate the rear muffler...

Ive flown a few gallons through mine with a 35RA on a 20x8 Falcon,its workable but after seeing the vvrc 40 twin & propped up another inch Im sold on that setup.The 35RA will not yank it around like the videos Ive seen of the 40 twin.BTW,anyone with a 78 thinking about swapping the goods out for the 85 MXS when it comes out?I know I am.

I still have not heard how the DA35 does with a prop like the 21x8 mejzlik compared to the VVRC 40. My guess is they are likely pretty close. Its' hard to beat the smoothness of the twin. And even with the larger (CM6) plugs, it fits perfectly without hacking up the firewall or the cowl.
