Hi Folks
 
Need  some help , have just got a old db hurricane ( still in great condition just needs new paint job) with a super tiger 2000 up front , only thing is it doesn't have an exhaust with it , I was thinking about getting a petrol engine for it but the 2000 has never been used and would be a shame not to . does any one know where i can get one ?
 
also i can't find any specs , what size prop would fit it ?
 
Thanks
 
Duane

Contact Dave Wilshire at Motors and Rotors - Mick, the source of all ST knowledge has retired but might still be able to assist.

Hello Duane . All the large ST engines I have had havein the past  let me down at critical moments and  caused  the demise of the models, a  couple of them were very expensive . If you can afford it , go for a petrol engine . The cost of a proper silencer for your ST will be significant . Beware of the very small capacity silencers  that used to be sold for ST some years ago they only added to the unreliability of the engine  causing over haeting  . As I remember  the St 2000 wasn't a very powerful engine and was ,by todays stanards very heavy. I have just bought  a CRRC 26 version 2 with proper beam mounts .Cost around £120 .It would be a good replacement for the ST.this came complete with a muffler and ignition system . The added reliability and longevity of petrol engines makes a lot of sense .the other plus is that petrol engines use far less fuel and wont require such lage tanks as the glow equivalent. And fuel is only about £5 a gallon .I have just built a new DB Hurricane and fitted a DL 50 in it . The airframe needed the weight of the engine up front nd balances perfectly. Should have loads of power . Haven't flown it yet as waiting for better weather. Good luck with the hurricane .

Nice model Duane I have similar pics on our club forum . If interested have look at  www.medwaymfc.org.uk click on the forum  and then "models under construction
 
Any ideas what it weighs so far ? Mine came out at 21lb 8ozs with the 50cc . Thats dry but with all batts etc only work needed is the roundels and weathering  Is your hurri the built up wing version or foam wing ?
