Default Successfully Broke-In My RCV-120SP

Don't laugh but I made this super cheesy test bench mount for my RCV-120SP to break her in. I followed the break-in procedures and then ran a gallon of Wildcat Premium with 15% nitro through her and then fine tuned the mixture screws. My maximum RPM is currently 5,400 and my low idle RPM is 1,100 (no glow driver) running a 3-blade 15.75x13 APC prop.

I'm now going to mount her in my Great Planes P-6E Hawk and connect my scale Keleo Creation exhaust system. Thanks for all of the help!!!

No problem,

I'll send you photos with and without the cowl so you can see the entire finished aircraft and the engine/exhaust system installation.

Post them up here too if you can.
I am getting a 120-Sp to put into my TF P-47 60 size.....
Would be interesting to see how you have mounted it, as i need to make up for space normally take with a engine mount.

I've got a 120SP in my KMP Spitfire and she flies like a dream.

Did the oil draining slow down any after you got it broken in?
