Hello, I just ordered an OS 37 for my Hawk Pro. It is the first time I have ever had a new nitro engine. My old 32sx-h was used with my first heli kit. How long should I run it with the break in needle settings?

It will tell you what that specific engine reguires in your engine manual, after you break it in, its always best to run it a little fat for a gallon or two before you go for fine tuning.

It states in the manual that today's high tech engines need little or no break in but running a little rich will only help in the long run..

The manual sates that it should be 1.5 turns out from normal. So that is 3 turns out total for break-in, right? And 1.5 turns(approx) for normal running?

If my memory serves me correctly, It will not even hover a 3 turns out, I think maybe 2 max will do the trick. You will know when the fuel is pouring out the exhaust after a run.

Its slightly different with every location, temperature, etc. Just open the needle to maybe 2 1/2 or somthin to start with. You should be able to hover but barely be able to climb fr break in. When you go for performance, just start turnin it in one click at a time until you can bring it back down and get a good temp like 205 or so. Because that means your probibly 220 in the air. when you start getting into idle ups, youll have to fatten it up even more.

Three turns out you'll be lucky to keep it running.

The factory settings are usually a bit on the rich side. Start with them, and work from there.

I am already using idle ups. I just never had a brand new engine before. My budget just grew a little so I now have an os 37 instead of the os 32 and I have a silent power muffler instead of stock, and I got a Spartan ds760 gyro instead of a CSM HLG200. That should keep me going for a bit. Yeah?

The important thing is to not expect top performance out of the box. Run it on the rich side and just take it easy for a start. Run in doesn't take long as there really is a minimal amount of parts and the quality of the modern engines require little attention

No rain on flying days:)

thank you all, I got the engine installed today. As luck would have it though, I broke the ball on my tail rotor servo while I was replacing the servo and my gyro and do not have a spare. So, I am now off to the hobby shop in Japan to try to find a suitable replacement for a century ball. It is looking like a Kyosho will work so I should be in the air tomorrow. At least now there is no temptation to fly before the locktite on the engine is dry!!

Happy Flying all!
