I got my Q-5TE two weeks ago , ran it last week at the RC Pro Australia , motor was great all week, cant say the same for my radio. The internals look very similar to the Sirio Evo4. The Capricorn pipe EFRA 2068 , differs alot from the Sirio pipes , the big difference i noticed from the Evo4 is the smooth power delivery and the runtime , because the motor was new i never pushed runtime but we pitted at 7 min and my pit man said that with each day their was a notable increase in the amount of fuel left when refueling...

Also Thank you to Aaron from Ozspec Hobbies for the engine.......

Shooter , The question i asked on the Evo4 thread were because no one had a Q-5TE , the 5te came the same as the Evo with the 2 head buttons and the spare low end needle. I started with the standard needle but after another 1 or 2 club days i will swap and see how we go. Talking to a few guys at the RC Pro Australia race about the needle and most are using the spare needle with the tapered tip to help improve runtime , no one said anything about the motor being harder to tune...
