Hey guys well i got a ys motor installed my first one and i must say i love it. Its a ys 50st but how do you check the temp without being able to put your finger on the backplate. I got good smoke descent power and about 5 secs or more pushing my finger as far up the back as i can. Mostly contacting the side of the plate. Last thing i want to do is burn it up. But i would think i would be ok as where im putting my finger should always be hotter then the actual center of the plate. let me know how you guys do it

With a temp gun, of course!
I have this one

The spot to measure it is right where the head meets the crank case.

DOOD that is super affordable!! so you dont want to run them any hotter then 220F right? I got that from a smacktalk video. Im really looking for a alternate way without a temp gun. Whats the rule of thumb for the side of the backplate? Or how do you guys do it with no temp gun?

Try to get your figure on the back plate, if not then there is no other way to do so.

We tuned engines long before they had affordable temperature guns. The temps will not be even close depending on the weather, to say run at this or that temp is ridiculous. If it was that easy don't you think the factory would just state a temperature. Temperatures depend on the oil used,nitro percentage, efficiency of the fan, engine load, muffler choice and a host of other variables. Try following the factory instructions, they work fine, and as you get more experience you will get to know the engine better.

Good thing about YS engines is That They like to run rich,

"universal" engine temperature is between 195F and 203F; many say it could be higher or lower however such a range seem to be the bench mark.

I personally run all my YS rich, tropical weather at sea level with a temperature around 185F; I understand the fact that at higher altitudes ( mountains ) more power is needed to fly as good; nevertheless, Keep in mind YS likes to rich.

That been said, buy a temperature gage, there are many inexpensive ones in our hobby or in the Air conditioner business; fact is, once you know, you won't need them any more but; it is better to pay for this accessory than to pay for rebuilding an engine and fixing you heli.

My 2 cents
