    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I just purchased both an Evolution 10GX and a 20GX. I am installing the 20GX in a GP Stuka that is just about complete and I will be installing the 10GX in a Phoneix 40 Spitfire. From what I have read on this forum and seen on Youtube, both of these planes should be a good combination and a lot of fun.

    Best wishes and good safe flying.

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    Is there a dedicated thread to the 15cc. I'm curious as to what
    RPM and prop people are settling on?  I've gone from Vess 14/6
    to Vess 13x8 but find that needle setting is very critical. I mean
    one click can make a difference in solid run or in flight quit. Is
    This normal?

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    Thanks sir this plane needs the most reliable motors besides electrics so I know these 10cc will not let me down  this motor been threw a crash  one time into our lake. Opened up crank  and drained then put some mystery oil inside to loob it up

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I completed the odds and ends on the GP Stuka today and the plane is ready for the first engine break-in run. I plan to run the Evolution 20GX gas engine tomorrow.

    Best wishes and good safe flying.

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I performed the ground break-in run yesterday on the Evolution 20GX gas engine powered Great Planes Stuka. A short clip from the break-in run is shown in the video below. Sorry for the poor quality but I had to shoot the video alone with a cell phone.

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I have a 10 evo, it has 4 flights , it seems good so far, my question is how do you guys get the "clunk" to work with a small tank? I am using a 6 oz tank on mine..

    That my friend is the million $ question . I went to a 8oz tank , I think horizon Pete said that the 6oz will work whether that means the fuel makes the tubing more flexible Im not sure . Good luck , maybe if you could weigh the klunk down a bit it might help . Cheers

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I'm beginning to think a gas clunk doesn't have to stay immersed as long as it is felt. I've been doing gas for many years now and have taken tanks apart for general maintenance with no running issues and found the tubing too hard for the clunk to move. The only explanations I have is that generally gas requires less fuel and therefore the tank doesn't often get too low and I'm thinking that vibration sloshes enough fuel on the felt clunk to supply the engine

    AA5BY and THE POPE,

    You might give a look at this :

    It is very flexable, . . . . and those felt gas clunks will usually pull a tank dry

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    Wound up eventually getting all 3 sizes, with the medium being last . . . . . Of course it's the one that works best for me on the smaller engines, barbs, and tanks.

    My EVO has a new model.

    I made a new experiment set pump Perry.
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8YfROT69sw[/youtube]
    I also used the old sample ignition - not pleasant to me to start native ignition.
    The model flies well with a propeller 13х6
    The following flights will be trying 14х4

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    I keep asking with little response, but for those that have stepped up to the 15cc, here's some feedback.

    The 15cc uses the same basic carb as the 10cc but its slightly modified. Hence, you only need about 7/8ths of a turn on the needle. I have been propeller experimenting with my old pattern plane

    and thought that a 14x6 would be best. Not so... with this prop the plane would just barely reach 60mph and the RPM was always a bit below 10k.

    Next I went to the 13x8 (Vess propellers) and found that I picked up nearly 8 mph and it spun at 10,200 RPM. Acceleration is a little slower but I better like the
    overall performance. Next week I'll be testing the Seagull models Zlin-50 same set up just a different Evo 15.

    Will report the findings.

    RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

    phatbob02,

    The extension is there to provide more volume in the muffler to give it better performance.  It is best to leave it in.  Be sure to tighten it as per the instructions as this is the most reliable way to ensure it stays tight throughout flight.  Some people have found that they prefer to replace it with the one-piece from Macs.
