Re: Engine upgrade

Really? what are you hoping to gain by fitting such an old engine? is the MD7b available nearby at a give away price? if not how about fitting something still second hand but more modern?

I haven't used these folk, but if mine goes bang, then they will be one of the first ports of call for a replacement.

Re: Engine upgrade

Sorry no, but also you will need to think about then applying any extra power with a bigger propeller to make use of the increase.
