Default That's sweet, Vo!

Very nice, clean, tasteful. Did it come with that scheme or did you do/have it done?


I sure hope I can fly mine pretty soon, also. It's needing to fly!

If I measure from the beginning of the header right out of the engine to the tip of the pipe, it's 15 3/8" ... the pipe itself is 12 1/2".. that's how it came from Jett, and that's how they set it up for me. The prop is an APC 8.8x8.5 40 pylon as recommeded by Jett as well. The spinner is also from Jett, and balanced.

Vo Decker,

Regarding the prop, I would recommend you use an 8.8x8.75 or higher pitch for more speed or best result. I know Dub recommended the 8.8x8.5, but that prop is a little on the small size. Dub is usually very conservative when it come to recommending things on his engines for Sport fliers, but in actuality the BSE .50 can take much more than that. My BSE Quickie Jett, I wouldn't run anything smaller than a 8.8x8.75 even though it have a higher timing than the Sport Jett .50. However, you can start with the 8.8x8.5 for break-in for the first few flights before you move up to the bigger prop's. After that I wouldn't use anything less than 8.75 pitch. Also, make sure to keep the RPM's above 17,000+ with highest pitch prop's possible for this fully piped engine. Hope this help

Other recommendations...
McCoy #59 (hot plug, idle) or #9 (cold plug, high performance)
15% Power Master Fuel
APC Props 8.8x9, 8.8x9.25, 8.8x9.5
A smooth thumb and no weak knees
