i own several fourstrokes engines from os and satio. 50 single cylinder to a 130 twin.a majority of my fourstrokes are inverted with the exception of my twin.i have never had hydraulic lock ever and i never have used the chokes that come with the engine.

i also use a electric starter to start them and by this method the engine pulls the fuel up to the carb with no problems.i only use a on board glow driver on board my quarter scale cub with my 130 twin.

i also fly off of water and i do not use any onboard glow long as the egine is set up properly it should run fine.this is just my two cents.

life begins under 10ft and ends at ground zero.
fly it like you hate it.

I have run a number of 4 strokes inverted; YS 91, YS 120, OS .40, Saito .50, Saito .65 and Saito .91. No problems with any inverted setup. I set up the tank the same as upright installations. The only thing is that I hand start all my 4 strokes.

I have used an on-board glow driver in my Beaver with my OS 91 inverted. I found the idle was much lower with the driver than I could reliably achieve with out it. I used a premade unit from this manufacturer and it works excellent.
