Orion Wasp .12 Turbo

Anything good about this engine? Anything bad? Any quirks or tips? Suggestions on running temp and/or plugs?

Tanx!

Tom G;

The 'Wasp' engines are made by 'Picco' and in my opinion very good/fast engines.

There have been some issues with the carburetors in the earlier engines, but this has mostly been resolved.
To really wake one of these engines up, install a Novarossi carb!!!

I have been running run for about 6 months. It goes well. I had a problem with the carby and put a different type on. It goes a little better. But other than that they really perform.
