Default EMHW Ultimate

Hey guys I'm looking for someone who may have an exclusiv ultimate kit in either the 2.1 or 2.8 version sitting in the closet that you may wanna get rid of. I haven't completely decided on weather or not this is my next build but if I can find one it just might be.

Thanks for looking

Why not just get one from Vogelsang Aeroscale $775.00 for the 100cc kit is actually quite reasonable!

True, I just wanted to see if someone had one that they wanted to part with. I have sent that company a email and instantly received a reply saying they are out at events.

I see that you are in the Atlanta area. Do you think that maybe I could come check that thing out?

I just spoke with Gotz, he's at the First In Flight Jet Rally in Wilson NC.

He'll come back to you Tuesday most likely.

Sent the check out today for the 2.8 kit from Gotz at Vogelsang! Woo hoo. Now thinking about a engine for it and a few that comes to mind is 3w220. There is one for sale on here now at a very good price (thinking hard about it). ZDZ 210 RV-j, 3w210, dle222 v3. I know these are some of the obvious choices but I don't want to spend over about 2500.00 new or used. While on troybuilt I seen they have a zdz 224 available on special order I guess. Anyone know of one of those running on a plane now?

Go for the 4 cylinder... It will save your airframe and servos. Almost no vibration compared to a twin.

The 3W 220 is good.

I run DA200... And really won't go back to a twin.

That is also my preferred choice as well. Hopefully when I get around to needing one I can find a good used one from someone.

I built this kit a couple years ago. First with the dle 222. Flew great. Plenty of power. But you could feel the weight.
I switched the 222 out for a zdz 180. Vibrations were not bad at all with the zdz.
Had more than enough power and 6 lbs lighter. Flew awesome with the zdz 180.

I know the quads are heavier but I didn't realize it would be 6 pounds more. I have looked up the weight twin vs quad and its not that much. Are the manufacturer's just trying to fudge the numbers? Was the performance unlimited on a 180

Mm mm

I forgot the exhaust change out also helped save weight.

The 222 was on JMB cans. The zdz 180 was on re-3 pipes. The re-3 pipes are a fair bit lighter than the JMB cans were. Also removed one fuel tank going to the zdz. I was running 2 tanks with the quad.
I was also able to reduce the receiver battery size because I didn't need as much blast in the tail to get the plane to balance.

With the 180, performance was unlimited. Pull out was stronger due to being 6 lbs lighter. And the plane just flew so much better being lighter .

here is a couple of the first flights with the 180 in it

Nice videos. Seen those several times now and I would say that it does really good on the power setup. I could not ask for any better because all I want to do is imac stuff in the intermediate level and above. Have you ever tried it on a 3 blade prop?

No unfortunately I never tried a 3 blade.
I also flew a 32 X 12 Falcon. It was better for IMAC style. A little more forward speed and a bit less rpm. It was a bit quieter .
