Ok guys, so im finally ready for my maiden flight of my Cermark F-20 Tigershark. I currently have an OS 40 FX w/stock a exhaust in it and i was wondering what fuel (10,15,20,30%) to run in it to get the most out of it but not burn it out.I am going to run a 10x6 MAS prop. If it matters any im in Kingston Ont, at 305' ASL.

if its speed and performacne you are after get a performance engine the nito content wont make a great pile of difference in the top end performance a 40 in this plane will fly it but ya prolly not gonna be real excited bout the speed if that is what you are after. seen one fly with a hp 40 gold cup on a pipe that was a strong strong engine performance was only moderately exciting i then bought the airplane an asp 46 lots of go to them made it come alive a bit. a gms 47 will also give surprising performance for the dollors spent

For that engine, 15% nitro max, readily available and reasonably priced. The engine is not a high performance engine, it is a good sport engine. Higher nitro would be a waste. 5% nitro increments make very little difference. To notice a difference use 15% steps. However the engine has to be set up to use higher nitro.

Use an APC prop instead of the MAS. There is a difference.
