With the CM6 plugs on the VVRC 40 the cowl needs to be trimmed slightly to allow the plug caps some clearance. I have picture in post 1364 of this thread.

Been busy but finally threw together a quick vid of the 78" Extreme Flight Extra 300 with the VVRC 40cc twin yanking it around from a few weeks back. This combo has unlimited power and is smooth to say the least!!! Watch the vid and you'll see it's not too shabby for a 12.5lb plane...

Recently switched to the 20x9 Falcon CF. Still has great punch out and pull but the speed is intense to say the least...

What did you change 'from' ??
Assume you are saying the Falcon 20x9 provided higher airspeed per throttle setting and still had plenty of 'thrust' to pull out?

hey Tim,
I have fitted my engine up and will run it tommorrow, any recommendation on idle mid and peak rpm's , so I can set my throttle curved appropriately on my Futaba 8fg.
also does it matter if I run 30:1 mixture vs 32:1

Great video Tim. I bought my VVRC40 back in Dec with the Christmas deal when I heard the EF 78" MXS was shipping before the Chinese New Year. I am still waiting for the MXS to arrive but it will be so worth it. I would buy the Extra but I just like to do a lot of high energy tumbles in my flying and I think it will be better than the Extra for that.

hey guys,
just wanted to say thank u to everyone for helping me with my first gasser. I maidened it today and all went well. Had to add about 250 gms of lead on firewall to balance it. The vvrc engine is fantastic. Many thanks to the vvrc team Tim Tammy and all. Loved the customer service, everyone was impressed at the field.
cheers,
amit

I have never heard of anyone needing to add lead to this plane with the standard engines like the 40 twin. I have my batteries on velcro on the canopy deck just to the side of the gas tank. I could even slide them forward if I needed to. Did you mount the rudder servo in the tail or set it up as a pull pull?

it is mounted on tail, am not sure why it needs so much lead in the front ... Everything is stock and iam not using spinner , iam so impressed in the 2 flights I had I went and ordered another spare from lhs. Really great plane, will check the weight next time when I get a chance.

the rudder servo is on pull pull, and my batteries can be slides a bit more into the firewall, I placed them very close to the fuel tank on the sides, dunno why I need so much weight, one thing I can think of is that the elevator stab was repaired on this plane (its a second hand I bought). But that's minor repair and dnt think will contribute to so much lead.
I will do the auw when I get a chance , what's the approx auw people r getting. Iam so impressed with this plane I went ahead and ordered one more from lhs.

This might sound like the dumbest question on this thread, but Iam a noob with gassers (been flying electric all this while) and please pardon me if you feel its too basic but kindly answer, how does this engine (vvrc 40)sound like when broken in ? Roughly how many tanks I should be looking at running and does it matter if I try to do 3d like hover rolling harrier circle tumbles etc on a non broken in engine ? Someone told me to just do straight line sorties till the engine is broken in, is that true ?
Tia
