Anyone know how many RPM a DLE55 with stock muffler spinning a Mej 23X8 should turn? 2200ft ASL

Hope this helps, Dale.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I was getting a lot more than that on the DA50. The Transplant DLE55 was a lot better on the up-lines but running rich, real rich! Funny I haven't touched the needles since it was in the other plane, and its rich. Forgot the tach in the shop, duh on my part. LOL maybe I could fly this thing out of my front yard? Na, the gravel is a bit hard on the prop!

Beginning to wonder if some of my issues are related to the volume of prop wash air going into (or not) the cowl.

Edit: Knew I'd seen something on here, gives me somewhere to shoot for. http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/show...E55+RPM&page=3

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

No, not working today.
Brent, if it sounds good, reliable. Fly it. My type of tuning. If it needs more prop, feed it.
If it runs like a toilet, don't fly it.
Are you trying to get the last 15rpm out of it?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Nope! Not looking to run it on the raged edge. More about operating in the range of the torque peak. I have to get someone in my area hooked on the hobby, then we could swap props......
