Does anyone know if Thunder Tiger .36 gives much more performance compared to normal .32 engines? If I install it to my Shuttle Z will I be able to do loops for example? I have now poor OS .28 engine. I'm not sure whether I could use it to practising or should I change the motor immediately. Does exhaust pipe of it fit to TT? If there is anyone from Europe reading this do you have idea how much would be delivery cost from USA to Europe?

TT36

I belive the TT36 has a similar power to the OS32 - The TT39 might be a better investment.
I'm not familiar with the shuttle Z but if it comes with a muffler in the kit, it should be fairly universal.

The OS 28 is now quite old so it may well be down on power. It should be OK for hovering as long as it is reliable. If it becomes unreliable you could easily spend the value of a new engine in crash repairs !

A more powerful engine will help you achive some areo's but it also important to have correctly set pitch curves and a model without to much slop/play in the control runs.

I hope this helps.

Bestw wishes.

I have a shuttle with a H 550 body and an os 32 and it does loops and rolls. I donno about the TT engine.

OS32 and TT36

Very well known topic... do a search on the topic and should get lots on information.

I think the TT36 has power, _maybe_ a little more then the .32, however I prefer reliablity over power, thus I think the OS32 is a much better engine.

I have been flying OS32's for 3 years now. I have had 3 of them, great engines in all aspects in my view.

I do some 3D, (funnels, inverted flight, flips, traveling flips, etc ... etc... ) and the .32 is fine with it. However, you have to be good at power/collective management.

Not sure about the .28, but I am sure its fine for practice for hovering and the like.

The .30 muffler that comes with the .36 fits the .32 without mods. I would recommend something better though, such as a Century High Output Muffler. Its not as loud and has better back presure.

Thank you for tips! I think I won't buy new engine yet. The winter is coming soon, maybe I buy one next summer.

depending on your winter and its temps thoughout the engine may run a little better. Engines tend to run better in the cold, but gyros dont usually like the cold much. The blades will perform better in cold temps/air aswell.

good luck,
Dean
