just keep in mind, that a 2 stroke needs ta be adjustested every time ta the field! (but should only need it once when you first start up) as they are more sensitive ta temp and humidity changes.

will become second nature after a coupla times! just break it in properly, and that shouldn't take much either, with modern engines by the time you get the carb set the first time, it should be flyable, just change up from 1/2 ta 3/4 throttle every coupla mins!

thats the way I broke-in my old magnum 25, and 25 yrs later, she still runs great, just slobs a lil more oil!

its great ta see ya building, welcome ta a great hobby, good luck and keep us posted!
some pics of your build would be kewl!
