WC heads up I messed with the shims in my motor and it was a bad idea! Tuning is a pain. 2 clicks one way will make a 25° plus DIFFERENCE in Temp. Gotta pull out a reshim per manual. Let me know if you still need a 3 needle carb....

Unless you're a hot shot 3D pilot , 15% will do nicely. 30 % is too expensive and a waste of money for many , IMHO

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

You certainly don't need 30 % fuel to do that !!!

All you need is some collective management and a little skill ...

Since electric hit the scene collective management went out the window for most. Collective management has a lot to do with your tune too. If you have crappy collective management people tend to lean motor to compensate trying to get more from motor the wrong way. That's why I love nitro you have to have good management then I fly electric and basically any maneuver is unboggable on the head.... +1 nitro

Novarossi Motors have always run best with 30%
if you don't have a Novarossi Motors then you don't know.

wifeorheli thank you for your help and advice I might have to chat more with you on fb this guy keeps following me being very rude when he gets the chance i think he is being watched and I thank rr admin for watching us.

WC,

You're always having issues of one kind or another as evidenced by reading your posts.....and your videos ? Well, they speak for themselves.....

My comment about 30 % fuel is valid..... ie, most "average" pilots don't need the extra expense when 15 % and proper tuning is more than adequate......

IMO, there is no need to spend the extra $$ on 30 % when you're just hovering around

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

On a personal level I wouldn't run anything less then 30 but it all boils down to flying style. The Novarossi Motors have a higher rpm for max tourqe then all other motors meaning a higher HS these motors were designed and built for hard 3d. BUT it's not necessary obviously. Nitro has gone way up in price it's ridiculous I'm paying almost $40 a gallon and I have to buy by the case as no one is really flying in my town..

this old Raptor pilot knows nothing about Novarossi Motors

let's see a video of yours doing tictocs with 15% without bogging in an old raptor.

and why are you following my post I don't follow you what you do is none of my business and I have never asked you for any help or advice.
you own maybe two old raptors you seem jealous of me.

I do own 3 raptors 1
trex 700e 600e 500e 450e

let see some proof you can even fly
I can fly a little bit never claimed to be a pro

WC,

I'm not following your posts at all..... this is not YOUR thread !!

Early on in the thread I posted my opinion that the expense of using 30 % fuel was not necessary for the average flyer..... True, whether you like it or not....

Then you started with your total BS !!

Don't have any videos to post nor do I intend to make any just to satisfy your curiosity.....If you wish, look at my gallery and toward the end you'll see me in an inverted hover with the R-50 I owned back then.... time frame is WAY before you started flying helis.....

Oh , and by the way, why are you posting you flying an electric heli when the discussion is about nitro helis ?? Are you that ........(fill in the blanks)

BTW, I love how you hide behind your skirt (ignore list) and then take me off just to read my comments and then place me back on it again..... that is VERY lame !!

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

no proof ehhh ? lol

and this is not my thread you cannot post on my thread and you know why.
evidenced by reading your posts.
stop following me its ok if you want to waste your time reading my post

what about a picture of you hovering?

so you have zero proof you can even hover while you are harassing me on what type fuel I want to use in my motor
and again you have zero knowledge on what type fuel to use in a Novarossi Motors to get the best performance 15 is not what's recommended, sir

if you think I'm lying and wifeorheli is kidding google it and see for your self
