I accidentally ran across a engine review about the RCS SV-17cc engine in RCM Magazine in their January 2010 issue. This is a issue where Dave Gierke does a large article about glow fuel and oil also. But the SV engine review is on page 58.

My performance numbers are about the same although I was running a higher oil percentage in the fuel they they did for the engine review article. But the calculated horsepower figures are really close to being the same too.

The engine performance figures with different propellers detailed are (using a 32:1 fuel to oil mix):
Wildcat Smart wood 14x6 8,400
Evolution composite 14x6 8,300
APC composite 14x8 8,200
Moki composite 15x6 7,900
Zinger wood 15x8 7,600
Master Aircrew composite 14x8 7,300
