I had the original carbsmart, then switched to the MG Pro. I stopped using mine when my sensor quit on me, too lazy to replace it.

Carbsmart uses a temperature sensor that is mounted on the head of the engine to determine how lean or rich your engine is running and adjusted the needle to make the engine run cool or warm depending on the temperature setup you set.

But a carbsmart with a micro server weights nothing on a 90 size ship. It is like adding another Velcro strip to hold down your gyro.

I have a hard time believing you could feel 13grams on your 90

I have Carb Smarts on my Rap 90 3D and my Titan 50. I wouldn't own a glow heli without one these days. If it is setup properly it is cheap insurance for your engine.

I've had one for a few months...sitting in my parts drawer. I'm not inclined to install it until I'm sure the sensor will last a long time.

Took mine off as well. Ran ok for a little while, but for me it felt all over the place in tuning. Went back to the old fashioned way....

You know what would be cool is for someone with carbsmart and eagle tree to run a tank without carbsmart and graph the temp thru the flight and then run a tank with carbsmart at 50% and graph the temp of that flight to see how good of a job it really does.
