Default RPM on ZDZ 160 B2-rv ?

Hello.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what RPM's to be looking for with the 3W 32X10 propeller on the 160?
Also some people are of the opinion that this propeller is too much of a load for the engine, but from what I can see it is one of the sizes recommended for the 160, and others use it on their 3W 150's without any problems.


Thanks
Steinar

32x10 is fine, rpm range starts at 5500 depending on exhaust setup used. DO NOT lean the engine out for max performance until you get break-in time on it and be sure it is baffled properly.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
I am sorry, but I forgot to mention that I use KS cannisters with the engine.'
And will be working on the baffles
