I cannot give direct readings for lack of an FG30.
I only have direct experience with a Saito 180 that I converted to gasoline for an aquaintance, and that engine managed 2,5 [email protected] or even slightly better. But that was a different prop (Graupner 3-bladed 16 x 8)
I would expect low 8's with for example an APC 18 x 6W, or high 8's with a MA 18 x 6.
