Gettin a New Engine, Thinking of Getting a New Airfarme To...

I think my Brillelli is done. Won't idle and I tried cleaning the carb and re-plumbing the tank. Nothing is getting it running where it should be.


I haven't decided if I'm going to get a DA 60 or a 3W 55 XI yet but I'm also thinking of getting a new airframe. I'm currently flying a 3DHS Slick and I like it but it can be a PITA to land with a good crosswing and I do live in West Texas. I was thinking of the EF 91" Extra 300 EXP or going with a Pilot Extra 300 or 330SC. Anything else I should consider?

I'm wanting something that will do both IMAC and 3D and I like the size of the Slick but it would be nice if there was something that handled crosswinds better.

I'm also open to just putting a new motor in the Slick and just flying that.

I flew a pilot yak and that thing went like it was lazer guided and on rails. Cant say enough about that plane. The DA 60 is the way to go for all out power, but the EME 60 is another good option. A little more power then the 55.

Look at the PAU Edge and Extra!!! I've flown the Extra, it just wants to do whatever you can think of, have not flown the Edge, but I hear it is the same way, just don't know how it would do in IMAC, Edge's don't tend to wanna drop a wing when you stall them.

I AM AWESOME
After getting my GP123 in the air and seeing the power it creates I would suggest giving them a look also.
