    32:1 Stihl oil would work just fine. As long as you have an adequate amount of oil, there should be no problem and 32:1 is plenty of oil.

    I have no answer other than perhaps in advertising, they can say about anything they want to say. Have you ever read a label that said it was less refined or low performance? I ran quite a bit of the...

    Shorter ailerons would probably reduce the roll rate. Increasing rudder area should help knife edge ability but there are other factors involved here. Fuselage shape and area distribution can affect...

    I should add, the OS 160 was one of my favorite glo engines so I really have nothing against that engine. The gassers just outperform it and in general are easier to operate and get along with.

    For me, when I switched from the 180 4 strokes / OS 160, etc. to gas, increased performance was instantly noticeable. I owe this to using larger diameter, lower pitched props the glo engines could...

    You have old instructions. They've been rated for 4.8 to 8.4 volts for at least two years now and it is clearly marked on each ignition. Some seem to work best at the higher voltages.
