    Magnums run fine on Coolpower and Omega down here. The most common nitro content is either 10% or 15% from the LHS. Some Magums do have loose...

    We fly year round here. The heat bothers me some as I'm getting older and was on some meds for a while. Some guys fly early but I think late...

    Like I suggested earlier, Beck's. :cool: I've ridden in hail and snowstorms. The trick to riding on snow and ice is to use the gutters. If there...

    Any Saito should be able to idle reliably at 2000 to 2100 rpm on 15% and an APC prop. I just mention APCs because I'm used to them. My 125 has an APC...

    I sneak up that lean spot on the low speed needle. I ease the throttle up and see how it handles it. Then, I increase throttle quicker. If it sounds...

    Dave, I was never impressed with Clarence Lee's prop selections but I understand why he did it that way. And, he started out a long, long time ago...

    Aerofinn- it sounds like my 125. That sounds like Saitos. I always tach my idle speed when I land, not when just cranking up. There's a correlation...

    I think the 91 fits between the 82 and 100 for prop sizes. You have a good choice with those three engines.

    The 56 with a 12x7 is a lot of engine. An 11 may too little prop for a 56.
