I have seen a few planes lost because they couldn't make it back to the runway without power. Once an engine is running reliable, then it goes in the plane, even if its not fully broken in. If it keeps dying, it stays on the stand until it is reliable.

I have a 30 year old K&B 61 that is almost brand new, and It is going to stay on the stand until it starts running the way it is supposed to. That is just the way I do things.

I don't mean to say that you are wrong and I am right, though. I will do it my way, you can do it yours.
