    RE: Jett Engineering Sport Jett 50

    i ran my sj50 this morning on cool power 12.5% heli fuel (17% ultra-high viscosity syn lube), and as jett engineering/bob27s recommended, w/ a 9x6 apc...i'm closer to finding the peak - 18,330...i richened it to 17,300 to finish the break-in...needless to say, i'm very impressed with the engine...when the engine was hot, the compression was perfect...when the engine cooled down, the pinch was still very, very tight, and i had to caution my buddies when they tried to finger-flip the prop...now i just have to finish the airframe (waiting on new servos)...ken

    Cool. FYI, APC's safety limit for 9" props is 21,111rpm. [190,000/diameter]

    RE: Jett Engineering Sport Jett 50


    The sport jett version muffler tuning tends to drop off around 18,500 - its not going to unload much above 19K in flight - tends to work like a governor.

    You are just fine with the 9x7 ........ but you probably would want to avoid flying with the 9x6.

    Sounds like it is running well. Use the 9x7 for a few flights.... then move to a 9x8 or a 10x6 depending on what you want for level flight speed.
