Now your going to need a roof rack. Don't exceed 40 mph on the way to the field.

Yeah man, another six inches and that thing would be taller than you! What engine do you plan to use on it? Or does it come with one?

Edit: I see it in the picture.... What is it?

I asked Howard Shenton, who's finishing the fix-up for me (he still has it) and he said he put a somewhat universal engine mount in it so he'll see what works best. I think there's an OS 46 in it now. I believe that plane is meant for a 46 -60 size engine, and weighs around 60 ounces or so. I'm looking forward to trying it out. Maybe I can fly it to the field.

Rosty, did I interpret the plane to weigh 60 oz's? If so, I don't think you will be real happy with flying it using a .46. That's asking a lot out of a .46 . Most Magnum's I've seen weigh around 50 oz's. Just as a guideline, your plane weight should be in and around your engine displacement preferably smaller. These were powered with Supertiger .60's. The beauty of a Tiger is it weighs 11 oz's. The only engine currently available now is the Evolution .60 which is in a .46 size case which weighs 11.5 oz's. Most .60's available in r/c now generally weigh up to 17 oz's. Ken

No, I only read that some Magnums weigh in that range, I have no idea what this one is lugging. I'll just take it with whatever engine Howard puts in it and go from there. As I understand it, he has it set up for easy engine swaps. I also have no idea how long until I actually have it in my possession, I'm just going with the flow.

Regarding an engine choice for a Magnum.. and as Ken mentioned.. a "lighter" one; I've yet to hear any mention here on the forum of the ST G-51... possibly because there haven't been any build-threads on models of this size? The guys from N.E.S.T. were using them almost exclusively back in the mid 90's.  Two Cents

Congrats Rusty

Nice going. That Magnum looks like a big plane.

Enjoy it.
