Outstanding Gill!

Richen your low needle a bit. You want to hear the motor 4-stroking every few seconds or so during break-in. By richening, your temps should drop a little.

I hope mine turns out like this one.

Like Zorba says you have some lovely scenery and sunshine

I'm glad you mentioned the fuel foaming first because I would have felt bad if I brought it up first, the foaming is caused by vibrations and that’s one of the reasons people chose balanced motors.
I know you dialled the hub in so unless you can get it better you will have to live with the foaming, I have to admit mines the same so don’t feel bad, if its not making your tail servo work overtime (getting hot) and the bolts don’t start dropping out you will be fine, I haven’t used locktite on any of the frame bolts and after 2 gallon nothing has worked its way out.

thats good news. I already put 4 flights on it and its got about 30min of flight time already and im pretty happy with it and its sounding so good. Im just waiting for my governor to show up and i still have the order the stator gator (RC motor version). I also want to run a generator on it because I want to fly more than charge my batteries. So the oil mix im running is about now get ready for this 21.3:1 well the engine manual recommends you run 25:1 on a regular basis and first i thought wow thats way to much oil but it seems to run fine and not much if any blue smoke. right now I just have a smile from ear to ear.

I cant wait till i get the heli the way i want but its getting there.

Thank you everybody for your support!!!!

stick with the oil ratio specified!!
adding too much oil can damage the engine.

This might come a bit of a shock then because I'm running 40:1

4.5oz of oil to the gallon or 28:1 is a good mix for break-in. Make sure the engine is 4-stroking every few seconds and you'll be ok.

As vatechguy3 mentioned, too much oil can be a bad thing. You could stick the ring.

oil Ratio

this ratio of oil good for cooling and breaking in but it cause vibration you saw it which is bad for AP but the good result can notice if you are able to fly with full tank for 50 min that is ok just hover not 3D because vibration is kind of wasted power this the big difference between piston engines and jet engines on power output so after 2 gallon try 40:1 it will be so smooth and stronger also I recommend you to activate governor after break in .

ill try to see how it goes and i will use a governor. i might try 32:1 before long maybe. as of right now im just trying to concentrate on breaking in the motor. i also got 2 gallons of 25:1 so i have to burn that up.

genartor

if you would like to charge receiver battery do it with NI-MH type not lipo .
and it is better to use big one like 4200MAH this will give you 100minute and of course you have to land for refueling your model so you can also replace battery too .

Very important point.

Fuel foaming is an indication of a very high frequency vibration that will prove to be very destructive to the radio gear and other items. Consequently I would not recommend that you fly too long with it so.

Unlike most other gasser designed frames, the T700 frame is one that is prone to transfer any vibrations and resonate easily with most any of them. Therefore, with this frame, it is imperative that you get all vibes eliminated.

Vibes that other frames will just shrug at and absorb, will prove to be critical vibrations here.

These frames aren’t the Align 700 frames they are made from 2.3mm thick G10/FR4, thought I would just mension that point.
Most of the gassers I've seen have some tank foaming if you fly them with the canopy off you will see for yourself.
