Yeah... but not in a speed application... This is a smooth 9000 rpm engine, not a raw power monster. Turns an APC 18x8 at 8300 static. Maybe with a 16x12 you could persuade some plane into some speed, but don't expect too much of it.

I have a .26 combat wombat. I had it on a Diamond Dust with a 9x4 ran one shim (as suggested by the factory 10% nitro). That thing fired up by hand each and every time and never missed a beat it was plenty quick for my application and with a long muffled tuned pipe from Macs there was no noise to speak of. I was going to put it in a Ducted fan application but I sold the aircraft before I could try it.

I have the same engine and love it. It runs so smooth and reliable and never had any problems from it since. One thing is when its new it is very tight. Break in good then fly a few times. It takes a few flights before it loosens up and is able to idle low. But it will loosen up and run like a beast. I am running a 7x7 on my Shrike and it turns high 17,000's. I imagine it may run higher not that it is fully broken in. Here is a pic

Oh yeah go with the MVVS pipe also... It clips directly on and no cutting or tunning needed.
