Rafy I have been flying mine and it is a real hoot! I have an OS 61RF - P and it pulls like a freight train. BTW have you weighted it yet? Mine came in at just under 9 lbs.

Rafy sorry my mistake. I got about 10,600 rpms on the ground. Should unload in the air closer to 11,000 I am guessing.

Yes thats about right. I am planning on using a YS long stroke. Looking for about 10,000 rpms. But I very interested in a YS classic the new ones. Those things are a beast. 14,000 rpms on a 11x9 prop. I think I like speed more than pull up power.

Will it really pull 14,000 rpm even on that prop? I spoke to Dr. Verano today, he is sending back a 140 of mine, have to ask him about your prediction. With that kind of speed and that plane you'll bust the 400' celling before you can blink!!

That's 2.6 horsepower. Pretty much the very top end for a 61 size 2 stroker.
