I really enjoy this engine, it makes tons of power and idles and runs really well. I find the tuning to be quite predictable, I did find it really likes enya 5 plugs and the needle settings are a lot different from the manual, but thats okay. I can't expect a small carberated engine to have the same settings in all different environments. Overall it's a very good engine and has brought me many enjoyable flights!

Great engine. If you get into nitro not knowing how to tune an engine without blowing it up, don’t blame the engine.

I ran a gallon through nice and rich to be safe (2.5 turns out from closed), and then leaned a few clicks after that to a slightly leaner tune to get temps up a touch. After several heat cycles, I was ready to rock. This thing is a power house, and I’ve had zero issues starting or otherwise. Tuning is pretty involved, so if you don’t know what you’re doing get someone that does to help out.

Don’t nuke your engine by leaning it out too much. If you do, please don’t blame the engine.

This motor is a headache. It can make decent power if you constantly keep up on motors tightness on parts. Ive had nothing but problems with this motor and no one will step up and do something about it. I will fly it until it burns up or conrod wears down to nothing from backplate and I will then go back to os motors. Save yourself the headache and buy o.s

Do your research because with this engine you are gambling with you money! I purchase mine and do to a bad regulator for the factory it blew the piston twice. Amain says all warranties for ys go through the company. Richard from YS said if it’s the regulator he will fix it but I still have to pay for parts. So in the end everyone points the finger at the other guy but I’m stuck with the bill. Do yourself a favor and buy OS engines.
