More than likely nothing, it was one of the motors in the lot I picked up. I adjusted the valves and made sure it was all good but it has low compression. I don't fly many nitros so going through the hassle of finding parts to refresh it is not on my list.

Re: Evolution trainer .455 prop selection

It sounds like you are into hanging this plane on the prop so the 12.25 x 3.75 would be an excellent choice. 12 x 4 or 11.5 x 4 would be in the same ball park too if you can't find one.

Re: Evolution trainer .455 prop selection

Thanks Mervin, well the flight with the 12.25x3.75 did not go so well. Yes the prop worked fine. But shortly after take off I had a dead stick I had not quite made it down to the end of my driveway to my runway so trying to miss the power line I miss judged where the plane was and put it in the trees. The only damage is one outer wing rib very repairable but I think I'm throwing in the towel on nitros and gas. Going to convert the twist to electric. Seems I have no trouble keeping my electrics flying with no damage.

Not sure that the power source change will improve your depth perception! But yes if you fly in a tight spot there is always a greater chance of loosing power with an engine.

Re: Evolution trainer .455 prop selection

True but less chance of dead stick. And less clean up. I'll let it sit for a bit, then repair it, then go from there. No rush to change anything I have lots of others to fly. And this one gets a flight every two to three months so I have time to think on it.
