I'm using coolopower 15% (not the 4-stroke version though)
OS F plug.

once I've gotten it fired for the day - I have no problems - it's just the first time it is a real bear - even the guys with the 18 volt drill starters for the gassers have a hard time turning it over.
except the last time i had it out - it started realy sweet - then it quit after about 5 minutes, when the crankshaft sheared

do you find the glide pattern of the Sukhoi to be short on deadstick :

hasn't went bye bye yet!

so heres the deal, two engines later and by the way great planes customer support is very good. i have one brand new G2300 thanks too the other one loosing compression . Have an 18x6 on it and the engine is on the sukhoi man its fun, heavy though, a rough estimate is at least 13 lbs. hovers at half and has endless verticle but does not rocket out of a hover, waterfalls like no ones buisness and lands like a dream. downline breaking is really good. the engine only has three tanks through it and is fat rich, i expect the engine will be sweet. the plane balances nose heavy with this engine on it. If you are not smooth on the sticks all the time she will have the tendancy to snap at the bottome of a 45 degree downline if you wank the sticks. any ways pretty good combo, just if you put a big engine on it add a hardwood LE for the elevator stab any ways enjoy and have fun.

I think I'll build a suhkoi now for the Saito 150. I have a Saito 150 on my funtana 90 and it is amazing, hovers at half and will rocket out.. (You missed the harrier landing into stall into landing gear flattener transition into broken prop today drew)
