Anyone have any info to report yet on the quality and performance of the TT 53?

Hit the search button, there's a bunch of threads on it. Looks like a good engine, I just put one in my 600N.

Pulled the big block, I'm trying the same heli with the 53, 61, and 91. I'll tell you this, I lost half a pound going from the YS61 to the TT53. We'll see how it flies when the weather gets better.

Only one 600N in my life, the others are a Freya, Evo 50, and a Rex 500. I don't care about the 600N, hence the engine experiments.

You mean you pulled the big block out of the modified 710mmm blade trex and then you put in the small block? This would be interesting but then again you have low elevation and thicker air for better power and greater lift so It MIGHT work but would like to know.

For me I have to stick with the big boys to have any fun or I just dont have enough power to do anything but forward flight and hover..hahaha.

My 600 isn't running 710s, just 600s and 620s. I've got my Freya to sling the big blades, don't need to do that with the 600.

I want real information from people who have flown it and put some time on it, not people's first impressions.

Sorry Eury, I mistaken you with ElectricCarl... He was the one that had the 600 with 710 blades on it.

I don't know all applications...stick it in that century stuff and it may tear out all the gears.

It's a very strong engine, checkout some videos posted here on RR. The quality of fit and finish is like OS or any other decent engine. Several hard gallons on mine if that means anything.

Very good surface machining. The connecting rod fits with proper oil clearance, not too loose not too tight. Piston and cylinder finishes are very smooth. The anodizing is very good and you don't need to mess with head shims. It fits airframes better than other engines needing no mount or frame grinding. The crankcase is well designed for low weight. The engine weight is less than the hyper. Most anyone with a TT53 likes it, check around there is information on this site.

I pulled my back cover, muffler and head, it's like new inside, very clean and burning correctly, unlike some other crap I owned.

It likes coolpower 30% fuel.

That really isnt possible, it was only released here 2 weeks ago. The only one that has a long term report is Dino. And his is VERY favorable.

I have 10 flights on mine and so far so good.

I have just received mine in the post this morning - which means that shops in the UK will have them also.
It looks very nice - very well made, the ports line up nicely with the crankcase and the general finish inside and out is great.

I can't wait to run it up and test it.

I Broke in my new TT53 by hovering 2 tanks. At 2050RPM head speed and while it still was rich, it held the RPM very well during continuous four point tictoks (a maneuver where an engine can easily faint). Low end power and torque was very evident with little engine bog while at full +-14 degrees collective. I felt I was ringing it out pretty good with various other 3D maneuvers too. The TT53 likes to nestle into its power band nicely and it just stays there, not dieing out even if you do goof up on collective management.

It is a little strange flying at a lower head speed (formerly 2200RPM with OS50) but it was pulling plenty good. Cyclic is slower due to lower head speed, but the CY Super Stubs at 8 degree cyclic brought back the speed I like.

The power is very evident from the get go. I like that I don't have to scream the RPM to get the power. I'm happy with it and look forward to great 3D flying this summer with it.

Setup:
_Thunder Tiger Red Line 53 Engine
_Hatori SAB50 Muffler
_CoolPower 30% fuel
_2,050RPM head speed (17,425RPM engine RPM)
_CY Radix 600mm blades, CY Super Stubz paddles
_+-14 degrees collective
_+-8 degrees cyclic
_Multigov with very aggressive settings.

Well, the manual said an extended break in is not necessary, and should be "simple." I usually do six hovering rich tank fulls, but I interpreted the manual's description to be two tanks full.

Ya know what, the engine is performing awesome regardless.

Put the first 3 tanks on mine today. Popped right off as soon as I hit the starter, idled perfect, and ran smoothly. Had a dead spot in the throttle at 1/2 stick, where it didn't pick up rpms for a couple of clicks, not sure about that, but I'm at 3 1/2 turns open. May be throttle curve, not sure. Just hovered it and let it cool and wasn't a problem in flight, just noticed it in spool up. I'm really liking the motor right now. Unfortunately, weather is supposed to turn to crap again, so may have to sit a while.

Mine did the same thing in the transition, it cleared right up once I started leaning it.
