    Super Tigre 51

    This has been sitting on the shelf for some time now. The plane looks similar to a Venus with huge tail control surfaces. Some one at the field thought the engine might be dumpster material with all the burnt on castor oil. Any hoo:
    11x5 APC 10% - 13,200 ready to fly. Good idle and transition mounted inverted. Plane had elevator flutter coming out of dive. Will try an APC 11.5x4 next time out. MikeB

    RE: Super Tigre 51

    11.5x4
    95 F
    10%
    ~3200 ft elevation

    12600 ready to fly.

    This engine just seems so easy to use and adjust. Idles for a long time with great transition. Like the others I have tried, 95 F is too hot for optimum performance. Presently I am having good luck with the muffler staying put. With the extension, most of the oil is blown clear of the plane.

    RE: Super Tigre 51

    APC12.25x3.75
    90 degrees F
    10%
    12,300 rpm peak
    12,000 rpm flying
    Had the same verticle as the 11.5x4 with less speed.
    This same prop and engine would pull my lighter 4* up forever. This plane weighs in at ~ 5.75lb. I think it will pull better when it starts to cool down. We had the hottest July on record this rear with May and June way above normal also.
