    OS FS-20

    Yes, I know it is out of production.

    But I got a used one, adjusted the valves, and tested it.

    Master Airscrew 9x6 Classic, Powermaster YS 20/20, OS "F" glow plug. 85°F OAT.

    10,800 RPM peak.

    RE: OS FS-20

    This is a very timely post. I recently obtained a used OS FS-20 and plan to run it for the 1st time next week. Will be using home brew fuel - 10% nitro, 20% oil (castor/synthetic) and a standard MA 9 x 6 prop.

    Mine has the incredibly tiny but cute muffler. Will post RPM results when complete [8D]

    RE: OS FS-20

    I don't know what muffler you are referring too. But I would guess it is actually a way to provide a pressure nipple for the fuel tank? I am curious to know if you get more rpm by having fuel tank pressure. Keep us posted!

    Correction on the prop. I thought the MA standard black prop was the "Classic" and I have found out it is not. The Classic is a wide blade prop. I was running the normal, narrow blade MA prop.

    RE: OS FS-20

    Okee dokee - ran the little beastie at the field today. Home brew fuel mixed this morning being 70% methanol, 10% nitro, 15% red Klotz & 5% castor oil (Castrol M). Brand new OS "F" plug, air temp approx 75F & dry.

    The RPM Results:

    Zingali 9 x 6 = 10,300 (NB: not leaned out as engine was VERY UNHAPPY with this fibreglass (?) prop, made dreadful mechanical noises - perhaps resonance thru the prop [:'(])
    MA 9 x 5 = 11,400
    MA 10 x 4 = 11,100
    Bolly 10.5 x 5 = 9,000
    MA 10 x 6 = 8,400
    APC 10 x 6 = 8,500 (NB: used the APC prop simply to annoy FBD )
    MA 11 x 6 = 7,400

    Will post a pic of the tiny muffler later [8D]

    RE: OS FS-20

    Here is the pic of the OS 20FS muffler that came with my engine......as you can see, it's very tiny - 30 mm long & only 13 mm at its widest point. Placed alongside a AA battery for size reference
