Hi everyone, I'm looking for my next model and have a 90 2 stroke sat around i thought it would be a p47 60 size by black horse looked nice and good value for money, but Iv seen a couple of seagull sea furys in a 90-120 size which would be perfect but I can not find one anywhere. Anyone have any ideas where I might find one? Thanks Tom

I have an SC 1.08 two stroke in mine, its adequate but no more. Flies really well, but the kit retracts are hopeless. Replaced mine with E-flite electrics 1.20 size, but better value options are now available. IMO a 20cc petrol would be perfect for one of these.

You legend tony, 😃 thanks mate, stuey don't you think my 90 2 stroke would be powerful enough? I'd love to buy one but can't afford that and a new engine, only had this for about 4 months lol

It should be ok. My club patch is fairly small, and it uses most of it to get off. The cowl is pretty big and blanks a lot of the prop, so as big as you can run without overloading the engine may help. I am using a 14x7 on mine, a 15x7 is something I need to try.

I think iv got a 14 x6 that's the biggest if tried, do the flaps slow it down a bit on landing? Like you my club isn't huge.

Mine's got an ASP 1.20FS turning a 15*8 APC and it has plenty of power. I should have thought a 90 2St should do fine but surely the prop size will depend as much on the engine's power delivery as the airframe? My MVVS 90's will happily turn 14*8 or 15*6s at 10k-ish revs but my ST90 prefers smaller props to get up into it's power band. I found the flaps could steepen the approach quite a bit. Get as much glue as you can around the retract mountings unless you fly from tarmac!

The flaps do help, and a bit of breeze too.

Mine is still going strong after 7 years, original mechanical retracts and flying from grass. I limited the flaps to 45 degrees as they really seemed to unsettle the model at any greater angle than this. A really wonderful flyer

Mine is electric on 12 x A123 cells 6S2P and turning a 15 x 10 leccy prop.

I have done a build/conversion/assembly blog on here if it is of any help?

Cheers

Danny

Hi Danny, what a cracking read very insightful, I'm all up for buying one tho only issue is I'm not sure my engine is big enough, apparently you could fit a 16-6 on my ASP 91 2 stroke but I recon the biggest I could get realistically is a 15-6 and the cowl Is quite large I recon I would lose quite a lot of thrust from the massive cowl. Don't want to buy it and under power it
