With all due respect, cassat,

if you've got a Super Tigre and you are drinking beer and not flying, I'd suggest that it's because you've been flying that ST so much that you need a break!

When you learn how a ST works and set it up, I've found that's the end of the adjusting. And don't let any of those know it alls who've never run one anywhere near it. You've got to understand them and be patient until they run in.

If you are unfamiliar with your ST you just may wind up cursing it. Do your set up and tinkering on the bench and your flying at the field. That's not the time or place for fiddling.

As for the OS LA vs AX, don't forget that the LA has an air bleed carb while the AX has a two needle carb.

Why not just forget the 46 and get a 55 instead? Then you won't need to worry if the Thunder Tiger, Super Tigre, OS or any other 46 has more power than the other.

Try "Great Hobbies" If you want to shop at Hobby Hobby then go with OS for the service.


You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!

well we will assume that the gent starting the post began flying in Sept. as per his profile. And that he does not yet have the knowledge to adjust a ST carb.
It also appears that he is looking for good value for the $100 range.
I agree with your comment that the ST carb is good to go, once you figure out the tuning sequence.

The OS .46FX was my first engine and one of the best i have ever had. I learn to fly using it, it then went through 3 airplanes and then into a very fast Delta wing with a tuned pipe with which it was sold.

The new owner still use it up to today.
Pilots can be spoken of as Kings,
When they smashed their wings,
And say, "Ah ----, it's just a couple of dings."

I am surprised no one has mentioned this but the timing is slightly different.

fx- rpm
ax- torque

You can often find Thunder Tiger 46's and 52's new in box for sale here. That's how I got mine.

My trainer had an OS 46LA, I should have bought a TT46 from the start.

My all time favourite trainer prop is the APC 12.25x3.75, limited speed and gobs of traction.
