Hey Guys,

Does OS make a good pipe for this engine?

Thanks

I did a good amount of my breakin yesterday on my .21 VG mated with an Ofna 086 pipe.

So far it felt good, I know I am not opening it up full yet, but using the breakin instructions in the manual I haven't had an issue. It fires up at a touch of the flywheel and idled quite well. With the pipe, it felt like the power was just waiting to come out.

Can't wait to finish up the breakin and really get this vehicle going.

Please let us know how this engine performs over time.

Thanks,

haven't had a chance to do the rest of the breakin yet. I hope to finish that up sometime this week.

My friend ran the RG and tried a JP2. It did not perform as well as it did with a low end pipe like the JP-1 I think that this engine is much like the RG so i would go with a JP-1. The VG is a good solid engine to start with.

I got the engine and the JP-2 pipe. I received the 8ight yesterday and I am going to start working on the kit today.

I used to fly R/C Airplanes and most of my engines were O.S. The instructions, quailty and packaging are always top notch. I am looking forward to trying my first OS surface engine in the coming weeks.

If its warm outside (I did my 1st breakin part around 60 degrees) it should start up find. This engine at the stock settings fired up immediately on me and had no idling issues. Very impressed.

I am working on changing my clutch configuration as the flywheel loosened up (I think I have the wrong collet on) so once I do that, I will run it again and finish the breakin.

Yes. I just picked one up and ran it all day on Sunday. No issues what-so-ever.
