    112 is not one to kick bootie with it is a fine piece of machinery with four cylinder and a great sound and not all that big. And to boot a 3W with red cylinders

    Got the headers and K&S cans mounted. Made up some exhaust extensions from a piece of aluminum tubing found at the hardware store (for a washer discharge hose!). Turned a couple of aluminum bushings, drilled and tapped for some 4-40 screws....and of course a nice baloney cut!!!

    Another hardware store find.....aluminum basement vent covers. Cut out the center section for this louvered cover. Very lightweight as well. You can also see the safety wire keepers on the exhaust tips....just in case one gets loose during flight....hopefully it'll hang on until landing...lol 20181013_113732.jpg

    The exhaust tips did you bend them, or were you lucky to find them bent, so then you had to was finish them of and fit them to the plane nice job by the way they look great.

    The bends were already in the aluminum tubing. It was actually just one bend of about 150 degrees, so i cut it in the middle of that bend, which gave me two elbows to work with.

    Finally got out a flew yesterday. All i can say is....what a super smooth running engine! I've flown other guys 200's but only for a few minutes, so getting 5 nice 10-13 minute flights was awesome. I'm running the same Falcon 29x12 3-blade prop that I had on the 170. Very quiet unless I go more than about 3/4 throttle, then it'll rip it. Pulls hard and by the end of the day I was starting to get some throttle management going. Unlike the 170 where I add full throttle BEFORE pulling into an upline, with the 200 you can make the radius and then add throttle as needed for whatever combo is on that line.

    Overall I picked up 2 pounds over the piped 170, so it came in at 43# dry. CG was very close to where I was on the 170 (batts moved from behind engine to a tray in the turtledeck behind the cockpit).

    I'm a happy camper!!!:banana-dance:
