    Guys,

    I used :

    Hobbico GloBee IntelliTachometer

    CoolPower 15%N-18% oil ( not a fresh gallon )

    APC 16x6

    OS type #F glowplug

    Idle : 1970rpm
    Half throttle : 5.340rpm
    Full throttle : 8.670rpm

    Needle Valve Settings :
    HighSpeed NV ===> 1 turn out from fully closed
    LowSpeed NV ===> as the manual suggests + 1/8 leaned

    is that a new engine or old one. those numbers for the APC 16x6 are very low. the Saito 125 on 15% turns 9,000 rpm and is the bench mark prop. maxed out i usally get 9,200-9,300 on 15%

    As i said,

    the fuel was not new, maybe x3 months old,
    so the Nitro content from 15%
    may have dropped slightly!
