  1. Fantastic engine! Review by Battman

    Fired up on the third flip from being primed. Idled at 1100 rpm out of the box and turns a 32x10 prop at 6700 rpm. Smooth idle and good throttle transition. So far three gallons through it and it runs better with each flight. I am using the DLE exhaust and it too is great!

    Super fast service from VVRC! Thanks! (Posted on 9/16/2013)
