Sorry, Rolling Stones playing in the background as I type....

Greetings all,

As usually happens, I want what is not available... namely a Spectra G.

I have made the progression thru the past three years from Rap .30 V1 thru my current Fury Extreme with YS .91. (You all know how it is....)

Well just when I thought I couldn't be happier, my local Min Air field rep and all around great guy Dusty Barron shows up with a Spectra G. Now, mind you I was thrilled with the performance and beauty of my Extreme. But come on! Same performance, same flight characteristics, 30 minutes of flight time on 30 cents worth of fuel? So after due deliberation, (30 seconds) I had to have one. Of course none available anywhere for the next few weeks.

So with time on my hands, I have decided to read up on the machine and consult the gurus...

Tempest or Extreme head? My flying style is mostly sedate and "big" but hope to make progress in the mild to moderate 3-D world. I like the look of the Tempest head, but don't know if I could make use of all the stuff it offers. 710 mains? 110 tail blades? Brand? I am running V2's on the Extreme...

Toxic 231 or Hanson 260? Bruce's shop is about 20 minutes away from me here in Las Vegas, but I hear mixed reviews about the vibration of this motor. So you guys who are in the know, please chime in. I guess the mega buck Hatori is the exhaust of choice. Dusty's sounds so good and quiet. Any other options? Gas or camper fuel? Oil preferences?

Planning on a governor/rev limiter of some sort. I have run GV-1s for quite a while and they work well for me. Any pitfalls with them on a gasser? I know the Revlock/Stator Gator combo is popular, how are they working for you?

Well thanks for listening, and hopefully guiding me along the path...

Tim
