Hi:

I'm new to gas too but I can tell you my little experience.

I used 20:1 mix during brak-in. Hi octane unleaded gasoline and 2T semi-synthetic oil for brak-in. After a galon or two, you can go to 40:1 with synthetic oil.

I have a 45cc engine with a 20x8 prop. I think that for a 41cc a 18x8 should be ok.

I found that these engines are very similar to nitro ones. You have 2 needles (Hi and low) but they run at lower RPM (7.000 or so).

Somebody also told me that gas engines need to warm up a little to be ready to fly.

Well, it's no much but surelly somebody will help you more.

Pablo.
