Sorry if post a little confusing. These Wankel types are kinda thirsty even though they are considered 4 strokes!

No wonder the engine is hard to adjust---you have the wrong prop on it !!!
Laughing---me happy ! I like all engines....gas,glow,2 stroke and 4 strokes, but the Saito 1.80 is absolutely the gas hog...I can burn a gallon a weekend of glow fuel in it...it takes about 6 weekends to burn a gallon of gasoline in my Quadra 35.

I switched to 4 strokes last year and my fuel usage has dropped by about a 1/3. I don't have any more trouble ajusting the carbs than the one 2 stroke I still have (OS .15 on my Lazy Bee). The valves all stay adjusted too and I fly a lot. I have 4 Magnums, 2 Saito's and an ASP 80 that refuses to die. I like the screamng power of a two stroke but boy do they make a mess and use fuel! To me a two stroke is just wrong for my Astro Hogs or my Slowpoke, I like the realism too.

Starting was easy but difficult when re-starting when the engine was hot so we did force cool it by spraying fuel on the engine with our then in use electric pump .... Idling is very good. There is a new make on the market namely Nitto Mfg.

I like your humor(joke). I glad you have much fun any kind engines. I understand about consume amount fuel at kind engine. 2 stroke consume more nitro fuel than 4 stroke engine? Right?

Some of the more powerful 4 stroke engines use a higher amount of fuel than seems reasonable.
My Saitos (1.50 ,1.80),are being replaced with 2 cycle gas DLE's as they are just too expensive to run.

They are GREAT engines,but I can use $25 worth of fuel in a weekend,versus $6 in a gasoline mixed fuel,and better economy.
In my opinion.
