I have experience with a Toki .40, they are power houses, but the tuning is different, and they are only happy turning lots of RPM. The "typical" needle settings are also different at about 4 1/2 turns out, both low and high speed needles. They take much longer to break-in than say, an OS. I have heard of some reliability issues...probably because of the high RPM and the unusual tuning. As I've been told, Toki is well known in the RC car industry.The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

They say, it its a 50 for power, in a 40 size package. Have flown one, and was impressed. But, do read the instructions. Not your usual heli engine;Honey, where's the check book, it's Fedex again

Had some difficulties getting carb set right - although a lot of that may have been due to a bad / dragging clutch. Connecting rod broke on me, breaking the piston also; happily, it did it during a low hover . Still have to get the parts and rebuild it.
The Toki is rather loud, when 'on pipe'. As posted previously, it does like to turn high rpm. I used the 'Toki' pipe supplied with the motor. Lots of power, compared to my OS 32 FH.
Can be a bit awkward when changing glow plugs, due to the tall fins on the head. The overall length was a bit different than the OS32, so that I had to slot the motor mount holes on my V1 Raptor 30 frame (to keep the clutch from hitting the bell).

Sorry, I had nothing but trouble with my Toki 40, despite following the instructions. Biggest problem was overheating even with needle at 4 or 5 turns and lots of smoke! Tried coolpower 30% and magnum 30%. Binned it after a couple of weeks.Hardware eventually fails - Software eventually works!

Guys: Thanks for your inputs about this Toki engine.I guess that
I'll be considering other alternatives,better safe than sorry.
This hobby is very educational & some how expensive when we hit
the ground.

I have had nothing but good luck with my toki. I use the toki w/pipe and an OS #8 plug. CY 30% running slightly rich at a 1900- 2000rpm head speed will make it spunky for ya and it keeps the motor cool enough to hold your finger on it.A friend will bail you out of jail.

I had a Toki for about a week.
I'm sorry to say that it always wanted to run hot. I wasn't impressed with the quality of the carb.
It got so hot once that the fuel nipple solder melted it came out of the carb.

It really sucks when your nipples melt off.

Try richening the thing up if it is too lean it will never run at the right temp, and that goes for any engine.
I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?
