| Mr Millington noted the
following when building and installing his RCV91CD in his Lance-air.
'the instructions that come with the kit got to
great lengths to explain how to conceal a S61FX two stroke, without
having to cut into the cowl line. You have to buy a special
exhaust and manifold (which has to be ordered from the US). You
then have to cut teh manifold down and make a join with a section of
silicone tubing. Incidentally this option is actually more
expensive than the RCV91CD.'
'Alternatively, the instructions show how to fit an OS91 4-stroke.
With this option there is a lot of fibreglass to cut away and the end
result is a ruined cowl with rocker covers and exhaust sticking out.
'Or, stick an RCV91CD
straight in, it is best done with a 92 degree knuckle manifold rather
than the stock item supplied and hey presto. Where has the engine
|'No cooling issues
if the baffle is fitted, and bags of power, this combination does the
whole scale flight routine at around half throttle. Open her up
and this slippery ship is converted into something a little hairier.
And it sounds just like the real thing.'
