Guys,

I used :

Hobbico GloBee IntelliTachometer

APC 16x6

OS type #F glowplug

Idle : 1970rpm
Half throttle : 5.340rpm
Full throttle : 8.670rpm

Needle Valve Settings :
HighSpeed NV ===> 1 turn out from fully closed
LowSpeed NV ===> as the manual suggests + 1/8 leaned

is that a new engine or old one. those numbers for the APC 16x6 are very low. the Saito 125 on 15% turns 9,000 rpm and is the bench mark prop. maxed out i usally get 9,200-9,300 on 15%

As i said,

the fuel was not new, maybe x3 months old,
so the Nitro content from 15%
may have dropped slightly!
