OMP Razor Yak Set-up

PostPosted: Sat May 09, 2009 8:15 pm

Thanks, that worked perfectly. I havent weighed mine but i moved my servos up behind the wing, battery under the engine and engine out on the rails.
I am still at 8.5" for the CG.
the only way i can get it up further is by adding weight. My kit built razor has the CG at 8.25" and i thought it was a little touchy but i liked it.

Oh, it's a little touchy, but it's suposed to be... it's not a 3d trainer... it's a hold on to your ass!!! ride ;) & does that very well, as well as very smooth lines when on low rates or easy on the sticks (which is my choice, since I never change to low rates... lol)

I was just running some numbers for a friend that is just getting into gassers. I gave him a NIB OMP 56 inch Razor Yak slab with all the servos, LiFe battery, a Rx, and a Vess 17-6 if he bought the DLE-20, and assembled the model, and of course, I get to fly it as well. The burn rate I have seen on my DLE-20/Velox is about 1/2 oz per minute, or about 250 minutes per gallon. That is 25 10 minute flights for $3.65 or about 15 cents per flight! How long could you run a Saito 120 for 3 bucks worth of glow fuel? I told him to mount the engine, ignition and fuel tank all the way forward. Maybe he should mount the battery on the fuse, up front as well, now that I think of it???

if he mounted the servos in the standard location then he will need to mount everything forward more than likely. Saito hunnert all the way out on rails wasn't enough on my arf, your results may vary

Thanks, the Saito 100 is about 20oz and the DLE-20 is about 30oz. So what do you think if he puts the battery, ignition and fuel tank out front?

I would do it step by step and mount the motor first and check it. Other stuff forward if needed cause we are talking lil over half a pound weight difference in motors 12 inches from cg area.
