thunder tiger1.00
what is up with the engine mount on the thunder tiger I was going to put a 1.00 RL on a n7 synergy but the engine mount is not the same as the O.S. are that what it looks like 1/2 a hole off width wise but front to back line up if I drill out the holes on the engine ever thing will be throwed off right?

You might ask Synergy if they make a mount that is correct for the TT engine. Try swapping an OS with a YS sometime... Ugh. DON'T just drill the holes out bigger. That will make things sloppy and tough to get lined up right.
If it were me, I'd mill slots in the mounting lugs, half the distance on each side (but I have a little Sherline mill just for things like this). Good luck.

I fly the Synergy 7 on my Realflight 7.5 Sim. If the simulation is anything close to the real thing, that is a NICE machine. I'd just shoot autos with it all day long.

I want to like Thunder Tiger engines but it's just difficult. They always seem to be down on power relative to OS engines and they're never as smooth. I did like the TT70 but it was way down on power. I'm interested to hear what you ultimately decide about the 1.00. I have one of the very rare TT90 heli engines that I'm saving for a sport flying Raptor 90 one of these days.

Yeah, at this point in their product line, how do they make an engine that is not bolt in compatible with OS. Huge mistake in my book.

The old line of TT heli engines were low on power and some didn't match up mounting holes. I would have thought the Redline series would have corrected that. I'm amazed it's even possible they don't match OS engine mounting dimensions by now. That's suicide. As for a Raptor manual suggesting an OS engine, what manual is that? I have everything from 30's through 90's and have never seen that. They are always using their engine in the manuals.
