Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

I am at around 6500 feet ASL, have a half gallon through my DA, and am swinging an MSC 22X8 at 6700 with the stock DA muffler and, with a cheesy fish scale in line with the holding strap, I am getting just shy of 20 lbs of STATIC thrust. I would say that in actual flying, that's just barely enough to climb out of a hover.
At 6500 rpm, I would say you'd get about 18 or so pounds of thrust...pretty iffy[&o]
