Yep... it was a little lean alright I had richened up the needles a bit prior to that flight, but it could have been a bit richer, LOL! I'm just excited I got to stress test my new CF skiis, LOL

GP61 on KS86 canister at 11.5" headerlength. I tried the Falcon 23x9 first. Prop seems to work okay, but the 9-pitch made it twitchy in a hover. The flight that I did the ski-stress-testing (lol) was a Falcon 24x8 which I like much better.

The canister was 2.9oz heavier than the ES pipe and I wanted a little less power than Brad and Andy's motors which are piped. Even on a canister, that GP61 dishes out some serious power. To be honest I really like the feel of it on the can and it makes it very controllable for the 3D stuff with a bit less power.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Brad seems to be keeping his videos private these days. Even after he uploads them!
