    The Rx engine manual, on page 11, shows a 6mm OD UAT feed line transitioning thru an adapter to a 4mm OD line to the pump and 4mm OD line to the engine. You don't need to use the adapter if you put...

    Not likely. The popping at idle is usually from small droplets of un-atomized fuel "exploding" in the combustion chamber. More of a fuel needles problem than anything else. Occurs in engines using...

    You could look in the FCC test report which indicates peak power is just over 16 dBm or about 40 mW.

    I always found that inverted entries always seemed to work best for the crazy stuff with the Rookie II. The hover isn't really a hover but more of an inverted slowly descending harrier.
