Default First Jett 50 flight.

I finally got around to installing my Jett 50 in my Sonic 500. The engone is actually slated for my currently under construction Patriot. But no sense in letting it sit all alone in it's box. So, after about two hours of trying to get the blind nuts installed in the 500 I was off to the the field.

I ran a 9*7 and got some where around 17500 running a bit rich after break in. It is a real powerhouse. I only got in two flights because the covering started to peel off on the plane. But tommorow should be fun. Holding on to the plane was a real challange.

I see I have an 8.75*8.75 pylon prop in my parts box. Would that work better for speed?

Ahhh.... The sound of a Jett-50 [8D]

I alwys ran a 9x9 apc on my Patriot but a smaller more aerodynamic ship would like the 8.75x8.75- I even spun an apc 8x10 on my Scat-Cat ---

Look for Mr Brasell to pop in or maybe Daven, these guys are dialed---

(Reminding me to send in my FRIED Jett-50 for a piston/liner overhaul) can't trust folks in the swap-shop these days [X(]

Keep us posted and where are the pics?

Nothing quite like blowing the covering off of a plane

Yeah... on a Q-500 install a 8.8x8.75 or 8.8x8.5 up front. an APC 8.75x9W works well too. Never worry about having too much RPM with that engine

You are right on the mark with RPM. After a few flights you can likely get a standard 9x8 up to that 17.5K rpm mark.

And as razor noted, the 9x9 standard blade APC works pretty well on the patriot.
