First flying of the beast today. Overweight and underpowered but it did fly. Looking at sooping the engine up a bit with a different carby.

it all depends on the size of your plane, generally the lazy bee does not require much deflection to turn, very small amount.
for a micro size version of the lazy bee like this, you need no more than 4mm of deflection, to convert this to a fullsize say 30inch bee, you might need half an inch of deflection maybe even less
