3W-110 vs MVVS/Evolution 116

I am looking at 2 engine choices for the EF 110 Yak. I have narrowed it down to the MVVS/Evolution 116 or the 3W-110. They both advertise the same prop selection but the 3W is a pound lighter. I love my old 3W106 but its on a plane thats quite a bit smaller. I also know that the 116 it a really strong engine. I'd love to stay with the 3W IF its comparable. Does anyone know how these engines compare? How much more power does the 110CS have over the straight 110? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Since you have picked out the two heaviest engines in the class why not go all the way and pick the MVVS?
Seriously though why just the 2 heaviest engines? The lightest in the class will fly circles around them.

You are entering the weight arena where the ZDZ Champ160 is a contender as well... Lots of High Altitude 35% planes smile with the motor...

Heck the BME 150 is lighter than either.

Re: 3W-110 vs MVVS/Evolution 116

of the 2 I would pick the 3W-110. I have been a big DA fan for a few years. I have a 110 on the way to try out in my new AeroWorks 300.
I have seen very little mention of the Evolution 116 anywhere. My flying buddy has 2 of the 58cc and has had numberous problems(bearing, jug/crank seals) with them. They do make some good power though.

The 116 is an awsome engine except for the weight. But it definitely makes up for it in power. The lightest engine in class would definitely not fly circles around it. We have compared them side by side and it is not even close. Even though my plane weighs 3 pounds more total it pulls out of a hover like a rocket leaving the others behind. But that being said why not go for the evolution 152. It weighs almost the same as the 116.

Re: 3W-110 vs MVVS/Evolution 116

Any long term reports on the Evo 116??
I am getting ready to build an AW 100cc Extra300.
I am considering a DA100, 3W110 or an Evolution 116.

I am flying the 3W-110 on a H9 Extra 260 and a Jtech 2.7m Extra 300, both on cans. Both motors will rip a 30X10 and a 29X12 Xoar prop. The 3W-110 is much stronger than the 106. The DA-100 is not in the same power class as the 3W-110. If you will be IMACing in the future with the AW a 3 blade PT cf 25X12 with throttle management will get you 10's on sound.

I fly a Xoar laminated 26x12 threeblade prop on my MVVS 116. Still have prop ripping in horizontal flight. I can prop hang the 18 lbs glider towplane with 5 meter glider still attached! Now will move up to a piked (tips cut off) Mejzlik 29x12Nx3 (piked to 27x12x3), and see where it will get me.

Re: 3W-110 vs MVVS/Evolution 116

Hi, The MVVS is a very nice engine, no trouble at all and a LOT of power.

YouTube- Broadcast Yourself.

The static rpm after 25 ltr with Engel 30x14 is 6090.
A little more complicated engine installation, but OK.
MTW RE2 pipes and 400mm header.

Where do you get setup info for tuned pipes?
Where do you get headers or header parts in the USA??

Re: 3W-110 vs MVVS/Evolution 116

I am really satisfied with the informations we get from MVVS and of course pe reivers
regarding pipe and headers etc.
The pipes are MTW RE2 with 400mm knuckleheaders made to us by MTW.
Sorry but I dont know who sell MTW in US.
Some more info, about the building.

Is the Xoar 3 blade CF? I would like to try one as the 25X12 PT is not enough for the 3W-110, it still rips on the horizontal above 3/4 throttle.

Is the MVVS not the evolution sold by Horizon Hobby here in the US?
