Default RE: GR130

Very good, I can hear you having fun while the engine accelerates ha ha ha, it's addicting!!!

Indeed, there might be some imbalance, you need to check that before going to higher rpm. Also the stand does not seem to be supported very stable. Remember, this engine is capable of producing +130N at it's top rpm. I also use a remote stand and a simple trick before actualy starting the engine is to switch on the thrust indicator, grap the engine by it's mounting and than pull at least 120% of max rated, in this case you should read 150N (appr. 15kg) while the stand still holds.

Congrats on your first run!!!!

Now the real deal starts.

Best regards,
Gerald
