I mounted the engine in a 60 size Great Planes stick, a little over 8 pounds. I ran 3 tanks of fuel through it on the ground using a Xoar 13 x 6 beach wood prop. Start up and runs were very easy however, during the third tank, I suddenly got serious ignition noise in the plane. I use a Spectrum 2.4 radio and receivers, I have 6 gas airplanes and have never had any issues. The problem turned out to be the spark plug boot. It would not stay tight against the plug. I used the old trick of installing a small radiator clamp around the top of the boot and it solved the issue.
I have put six flights on the plane still using the 13 x 6 prop. The engine has excellent power and no issues. The only reason I could not give it all 5s was the issue with he boot. I will definitely buy another one !
This is an amazing little engine. The forethought that went into the engineering and design is event. The engine started and ran well from the start. It provided plenty of power for my Phoenix Tiger Sport 3 (weighs 8.5 lbs.) I am considering putting one in an Escapade 61.
This is a great 15cc BM engine. Its been hassle free from day 1. I have about 30 flights on mine and its been great. Using 32:1 gas/oil mix Easy first starts, smooth transition and strong top end rpm with a 13x10 APC prop. Mounted it in a 60 size P51 weighting 8 lbs. 6 oz. Engine flies it fast and strong all day long with easy take-offs and strong vertical climbs. Never dead sticks. Guys at the field love to watch this plane fly.
I bought this RCGF 15cc engine from VVRC one month ago and it has been running great right from the start. Followed the manuf. break in procedure with 30:1 gas/oil ratio and a smaller APC 14x6 prop. Engine always starts right up and runs very smooth. Hi and lo needles needed slight adjustment. Mounted engine into a P51 60 size plane with 65" ws that weighs 8 lbs.- 2 oz. Plane flies great from take off to final landing. I have about 25 flights on engine now with an APC 13x10 prop. This is a very strong engine and the best 15cc engine I have owned/flown so far. I highly recommend this engine.
