Are you guys sure the 55ax will do the trick on this size bird? Most 40 size that fly well with a 55ax are pretty close to either side of 4lbs for good flight performance (Bro Power). I only ask, cause another Bro had a Primo 40 that came out heavy at 4lbs 15oz or so, and it was noticeably not as nimble as others near the 4lb range. I am no expert for sure, just my two cents. But I did a bit of thinking about this, wanting to have a 2 stroke glow powered MadCap, and in the end this was what made me decide to attempt to copy the MadCap in a 40 size. So far I love it :tu:

You could talk to Bronco, I think I read something about he was the Bro who invented a secret method of purging the airframe with helium while covering, or some shit..... :mrgreen:

:rofl: that is a good one. I think Chris did all that work to get it down to 5 lbs. That was the original MadCap50, not the EVO. Im sure he could work some magic on that one too, he is a great builder for sure :tu:

That's funny shit right there. As I recall on my MC 50 build most of the weight reduction was from going with a lighter power system, light weight covering, smaller diameter wire landing gear(5/32") and light weight wheels. The airframe itself was basically stock. I do wipe off all excess glue and sand the airframe well before covering.

WCB and I have talked about this a good bit already. What he needs now is someone like McDDD or others with experience running the 55AX to see if it in fact it will be enough power. I have messed with 55AX's a bit, but have never owned one myself. We all know the 55Ax is a great engine, that makes lots of power and transitions awesome, but is it enough for a 5lb plane?

I've flown 4lb planes on a norvel 40, and they flew well, I think a 55ax would be plenty of power for this. it's not going to have shit loads of vertical, but as I've seen ian fly, it's more a 50ft box kinda plane... correct me ian if I'm wrong...

For those of us who cannot fly the 50' box yet.....we need shit loads of vertical.....cause the save (or attempted save) is our best and most performed maneuver :mrgreen: I thought all Bro's liked shit loads of vertical :rockon: :rockon: Bro Power :rockon: :rockon:

No you nailed it. The 55 isn't going to be a vertical drag winner at 5lbs but it will get the job done. As Joker said, the evo is a 50' box plane and as light as it is on the wing it doesn't need a ton of power to overcome its wing loading. Personally I'd rather use a saito 82 or YS63 for more stump pulling power but with a can, the 55 should get the job done. Bear in mind this is at or close to sea level. I would NOT run one at altitude.

Actually that is where you'll be surprised and pleased with the EVO cap. There is no "save" room needed. That is part of the EVO magic or "cheat codes" as Andy put it. There's none of that "oh shit *wing rock wing rock wing rock finally pull out* whew" that you get with other planes. No matter what attitude it is in, you just neutralize the sticks and it is instantly flying straight no drama at all.

Sorry Jake, not yet. I should have that put together early November once I'm back from my trip. Zam will have the cutting costs figured out by then and I can add in the materials and put pricing together.

I'm doing the electric on this one. I fly up here at 4500' and want to make sure the powa is sufficiently bro-zy.

I'm not sure how far above sea level I am, but I figure it's low since it's all flat lands & I didn't take into account for the bro's in the mountains... that may make a difference...

The 55ccp setup should be plenty. My ironman CY was 5#4oz dry and it still had some pull towards the end with a 12x6 chopped down to a 9x6ish.

Ian I'll get in on the the next run, awesome design bro.

Hell don't wuss out, caveman! If you want ill suitcase ARF one for yah and send it your way. After doing the design on case' mad edge it'll be a price of cake. I'm actually going to do all of my kits this way from now on.
Very simple, clean, easy flat transport and shipping if I want it to go somewhere or sell it later. Doesn't add but an oz or two.
But your also just in TN. It shouldn't give us a chance to hook up and tear shit up sometime or an excuse to get to Nash early again.

Ian,
I said 900 because I thaught that was the "hot" G32. Most are 800kv, right?



I have a few of the hot ones (silver/blue and red/black), the sticker says 800 but the actual KV is 850-860.
