    RE: Help about OS FS a-110-P

    the rpm you are getting with a 15x8 is in the lower range of the engine.But expect rpm to be in the lower 8k+ band for this prop size. If the head is very hot, then there cud be some seizing or maybe...

    RE: Orbit 7-14D Proportional - any info?

    RE: 180FS Glow to Gas

    I'd go 9mm for the carb for better transitions and less loading up on larger props.The RPMs would favour that size bore. I did a gas conversion for my asp180, using 16:1 mix and used the original...

    Looks like a engine by a taiwanese company, Super Flying Model. They used to sell engines under their brand name for a while. I don't think they manufactured them. That engine looks familiar.
