GP76

Hi..

Is there anybody who has the GP76 in his Mamba?
Will it fit under the cowling?

Indeed... Nice flight but the sound with the canister is very loud. Better would be a pipe for smoother sound.

it does fit with some modifications. drill the motor mount holes 3/4 of a mounting hole to the starboard side of the plane. if not it will rub the cowl on the port side. i only drilled half a hole starboard and i BARELY rub but it was enough to make a little stress crack after 6 flights. i wouldnt have it any other way though. the 76 has been super reliable to start and runs like an absolute beast.

My Pitts had a fixed pitch prop, so, to prevent engine overspeed the throttle is closed in a vertical dive.

On the shop site are present also the spare parts in that colour.


Good news and great work from Flex!

Think not, there were Beast and Viking and other Model 12 Pitts.
Flex will sell many models for many people, therefore the 120cc Mamba could be very exclusiv.
The 70cc class should be better... but we don't know their business :-)
