I am curious about this engine how are the bearings holding up compared to the OS and YS 50's?????? How many gallons do you have on your REDLINE bearings??

Any other issues your having now that you didnt have when it was new???

Thanks for your time and answers I am considering this engine because Im sick and tired of having to keep a box full of rear bearings laying around.

Is it working with the MP5 or is there another pipe it perfers???

Does it make the power of the OS and YS ???? It seems to in the vids Ive watched of it. Im looking for real world answers not answers from guys that get paid to fly it.

ENGAGE!!

I'm not paid to fly anything - wish I was!!

I can only comment on my TT53 which has now had about 4 gallons through it, there have been no problems what so ever including bearings.

Mine is run on an MP5 which it really seems to like, it makes more power than my previous Hyper did, and I'm only running 20% nitro fuel. It likes to rev, but I think the top end power band is actually quite wide meaning you should be able to run a headspeed of your choice providing it's not really low.

Regards,

David

That sounds good to me as I don't like anything below 1950HS. When I was running my Hyper at this HS I thought it felt good until I turned it up to 2k then it seemed to come alive and make much better power.

I have been wanting to try 2.1k so if this engine has a good top end power band I may just have to pick it up.

Still waiting on a few others opinions though.

Thanks for your help.

The carb barrel is binding when the engine heats up.

Besides that issue MR10X I wasn't that impressed when I seen them fly then I found out they use the same size rear bearing as the hyper50. I may not be 100% correct on that fact but to me same size = same bearing = same issues.

I havent counted it out yet but my impressions so far is that it doesn't live up to the hype.

I'm very happy with mine, I have about a gallon through it so far. Easy to tune, and even extremely rich it makes great power. The carb on mine was sticking, turns out that I tightened the carb mount bolts too much. I like it so much, I just bought another to replace the Hyper in my RJX Xtreme with.

We finally got ours working right and tuned good. The power is OK,nothing spectacular about the same as a good OS 50 but not quite as good as a YS 50. It does run and idle smooth though.We are using the MP 5 on a Titan 50,with Radix blades,and 30% Magnum fuel.

I'm real happy with mine. I replaced a YS 50 with the redline which is a good engine but the TT53 makes more power and it runs better.It's a keeper.

MR10X when you say "we" and "ours" I take it you don't own one yourself or maybe you went splits on one with someone?

This is exactly what I observed about being the key word on four different motors. Its hard for me to believe that all four motors were tuned improperly but it is possible this is why I said I havent counted it out completely yet.

I also wonder what the chances are that the hyper carb will fit the TT in that case I will be all over it. I didnt hear any rattly bearings in the TT every other Hyper that went up I wanted to tell the owner his bearing is crap. Have the TT's been out long enough to have enough gallons through them to start having bearing issues???

No the Engine doesn't belong to me,i'm helping the owner to get it running right because he is having issues with it. I have been keeping up with the threads on this emgine so i'm familur with the tuning issues and carb sticking problems. I didnt get to measure the carb,but it looks smaller than the OS carb. I am comparing the power to a simular heli with an OS 50 and right now it doesnt look any better than the OS as far as power. I know from past TT engines the carbs have always been an issue and the engine were never consistant,some would run great and some would not and require carb mods.

Maybe the owner needs someone else to have a go at it since you cannot make any head way past the YS performance? Run it at 22-23K. I found 5 turns with the stock canister muffler and 2-3 turns on the MP-5. I also adjusted the low speed for a rich idle after warm up. Fuel can make a big difference in bearing life and engine tuning, maybe give cool power a try. Seeing how you cannot make it run right I'm unsurprised that the engine is down on its full potential

The carby uses a mounting system similar to the YS.
If you tighten the bolts down onto the crankcase with just a touch too much force, it distorts the carby case and causes binding of the barrel.

To get around this, I used red RTV on the gaskets and a touch of locktite on the mounting bolts.
It just takes a small amount of force to distort the case. So locktite it and let it cure overnight this way you won't have an issue.
