Break in of my Saito FG-60R3 Radial

First two Gallons of regular gas with a mix 16 to 1

Lawnboy ashless was the oil i used

Needle settings were as follows
High needle was left at factory setting
Low needle was set to 6.5 turns out

First 2 gallons the rpm was cycled from 1500 to 2500

Engine is very responsive with very little lag even with high oil content

Engine temps at first were all over the place

cyclinder 1 being the hottest
cyclinder 2 next
cyclinder 3 way off as if she was fouling and not firing

Just like the real radials ha ha (fuel injection is needed)

This all changed after the first gallon, Parts started to wear in and
starting and idle were all getting better.

After 2nd gallon was complete, and still running rich, and heavy oil mix, She was just fine.

Im running a Fromeco 7.4 volt Lithium Ion 2300mah pack for the
ignition, This motor seems to enjoy high voltage.

Noticed that after pack dropped to 7 volts, Low idle was a dead stick
for sure. As soon as i put in a fresh pack, which has a peak voltage of 8.2 volts. She can run all day at 1350 ,1450 rpm.

Anyway so far so good, No major complaints.

Can't wait to see this strapped to the firewall ha

Pull test will be the next video.
