Default 40 SIZE PATRIOT

Ok , here is a crude video of my patriot, my video man did the best he could, i will get a better video soon, the SJ 50 is still rich,, the low end needle was too lean, so i richen up some, and the high end is currently at 1600 rpm, i will lean the high end out some more but i did manage to get the video,. i am using the 9x8 apc,.enjoy.

Do you mean 16,000 rpm's? My SJ-50 turned a 9x8 APC at 17.2K nice and rich....The best performance I had was the 9x9 APC though.

Somebody doppler this thing-

rpm is too low..... if need be, fly the thing with a 9x7 on it for a few flights ..... get the engine screaming. Look for 17,000 rpm and higher. Will get their easily and still be rich with the 9x7.

Don't try the 9x9 until you get about an hour of unloaded flight time on the engine.

I right click on the page and under page info it lets me translate to English using Google. It may be on my PC because I have the Google tool bar installed.
Option 2 is to use this web site to translate it.

Nice job. That's all the speed I'm getting out of my Scat Cat, but I don't have anything special on it for power.
