Default OS LA .10 and tornado

Testing new camera and interesting story. I was out back running this OS LA .10 conversion, it suddenly, in fact very suddenly, got dark. I shut the engine down and heard this loud howling sound like a locomotive. All of a sudden limbs from my neighbors trees were flying over my head and on out into the neighboring 35 acre cornfield. I just learned that I was right out in a 45 second long tornado. Our electricity just came back on after being off for 4 hours. Every street here in Placid Bay has tree limbs scattered along and on them.

PS, the camera is an HP s520.

The prop you see here is a Taipan 9x4 which the little .10 turned at 9,500, I'll have to experiment with some other props.

I have two blue .46s and a blue .65, they had discontinued the blue when I bought this one. Its only a couple of years old. Geri opened the front door to see what was going on and the door nearly knocked her flat. It took all the strength she could muster up to close it.

Here is just some damage right in our yard. Chain saws are running all over the place. Luckily, I have nothing to cut up.

Martin, I discovered yesterday that the little LA .10 does not like a large, (16 oz) tank. Yesterday I had to keep chasing the high speed needle as the tank level dropped. Today I used a 6 oz tank and raised it up where the center of the tank was at carb level. Starting with the tank 3/16" from the top it took 45 minutes to use it down to where you see it in the picture. I made 3 full 5 minute full throttle runs and much of the time at 7,000 and above. It is a sweet running engine. Both pictures are at full blatt.
