I have one still in it's shiny new box hehe waiting for the weather to break it in, I have a few other Magnums and all run great and did some research before getting the 180 and couldn't find much negative feedback any place from people that have them, I have a plane that a friend has and he put a Saito 180 on it and I know the saito will have more power but for the price difference, It won't have that much more.

Just replace my 120 magnum with the 180 magnum in my Suhkoi. What a difference. Break in was started with a 16-8 prop. after 2 tanks run on the ground, started flying. After about 4 flight, it was surging pretty bad, and had to really richen it up. Went to a 17-6 prop to slow it down some. Was still turning 9000rpm. Still running pretty rich, but is smooth and reliable. Great idle. I have about 12 fights on it now, and going to try a 18-6 to get the rpm down, but more pulling power.

Fuel wise i was shocked. It calls for a 24 oz tank. I opted for a 16oz, as i don't stay in the air more than 10 minutes normally. My last flight i set the timer, and flew for 18 minutes and landed with it still running. Don't think you could ask any better than that.
