Default mvvs .77 break in

Hi All,
Have recenntly acquired a new .77 that didn't come with box or any instructions. I plan to use 5% nitro with 20% oil (50/50 mix synthetic and castor) and suspect it will be a slow break in process. Will probably wind up in a Golden Age relic with a big prop but mabey a 4*60 to get some time in.
Any info on break in procedures, prop sizes, and ADVICE or sugestions are apprecated.

Many Thanx

PE,

Thanx for the link to manufacturers site. Did search your site, but couldn't find just what I was looking for.

Hope your holidays are great and the quick response is much appreciated

At our club, no matter what low nitro fuel or breakin attempts, very experienced engine gurus were unable to avoid dead sticks on those engines. Don't fly anything vauable is my opinion.

Hi 4*60,

Do understand and appreciate your opinion here. I do have a 4*60 on the build table rite now to use as a test bed for most of my smaller engines . . . specifically for reasons you mentioned.

Again, Many Thanx for your input
