92" Edge GP88 evo

This has always been my favorite plane but when I went to build another one last week I wanted to try a different power plant.

I took the gp88 out of my 108'' corvus racer, It had a tuned pipe on it but I am going to try the pitts style muffler first and see how it does.

It spins a 28-9W at 6400 RPM, there is just enough clearance for this prop but I recently purchased a 24-12W three blade from "smokinRV" and want to see how that works, plus you cant beat the looks of a three blade

I do have a few things to clean up on the build, mostly wiring. Maybe add some epoxy/fiberglass to the motor box and out to the wingtube. I put it all together to check the balance and it is 100% level right now and weighs in at 19.5 pounds.

hopefully fly it sometime this weekend!!

Same here had one with a DA70,but just couldn't keep it cool enough with the two small entrance holes.Just went back to the DA60 now,flies better with the lighter engine I think.
They do fly nice.
