HP VT-49

I have an Austrian version of the above that I've recently acquired. The High Speed Needle valve "body?" or "nipple?" and perhaps other parts are missing. The needle may need replacing as it has a bur to it. I have pics. Is there an exploded diagram to properly identify the parts required? Parts deptarment descriptions seem inadequate. Thanks for the help-

I believe its called a "Spraybar" in the parts listing. Good luck.

If you ever want to sell the engine, lemme know, :wink:

Shane,
Bought whole High Speed assembly from MECOA.
What do you think the value of an Austrian engine is? Thanks-

Pretty hard to say on the value. Depends on....

Condition (of course)...
How bad a buyer wants it (this varies dramatically)...
Fullness of the moon :wink: ...

Really, I have seen them go for 50-125 bucks. One just went for 50 on RCGroups (and no...I missed it) And there is a like new one on RCU right now for 135, but it hasnt had any hits on it. I would say they are generally worth about 75-125 range.

I have one on my 4*40 and I love it. Everyone at the field wants me to put a 2 stroke screamer on it but it just flies soooo realistic. Kinda like an acrobatic plane. You can horse it around a little but she will run out of steam fast. Its pretty worn out I believe, the plane I got it on was a mess, but I dont care, I love em and as long as its percolating Im gonna keep on runnin her!

Wish I could find a .61. heheh

LOL...I remember that goin on Ebay...bout a month or two ago I believe? I was out of town or I would have butted heads with ya :wink:

You will love it. It needs to be acurately tuned every day at the field, very sensitive to the coolness of the air. 30 - 40 degrees and mine will need almost a whole turn on the needle. I have mine mounted inverted, and even old ond tired she seems to love a standard 12x4.

That's cool. I want to go fly now. I just bought a 4*60 and have a Saito FA-91 for it. I did buy the Vt in November I think. Hope to fire it up this weekend.
