    Pete, what props do you run on your Saito .30. Today I ran a Xoar 10x5 and it still went to 10,650 rpm. It seems as though the Bolly 10x5.5 is the prop of choice.

    It sounds as if the demand regulator needs rebuilt or adjusted. Or maybe just cleaned out. It's easy enough to do. Pay close attention to which way the regulator housing faces.

    After receiving the Xoars I'm impressed by their quality. They are so light I'm concerned the engine may not idle well with them. The Bolly's and the Graupners have some heft to them.
