Re: magnum 52 4 stroke

Have one in a Sig Somethin Extra. Flies the plane well although not a barn burner. Took a while to be run in and be a consistent runner but now with a a season of flying behind it, runs very well and idles reliably.
Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Re: magnum 52 4 stroke

I have one and like the man said they are not a barn burner, but inspite of the fact that I had to do a carbon removal of the piston and head ( i disturbed the ring seating). After a couple of runs the compression is coming back but it still runs and idles well.
