The weather cleared up enough today to test run the EME 35cc. This is a great engine. I have a Turnigy 19x8 wood prop on it for break-in. I am using Stihl HD synthic oil at 32 to 1. I ran the engine for three 10 minutes runs and the engine ran better after eacj run. I gave the EME 35 10 minutes rest between run's. I am getting a good idle at 1550 and I did WOT for a few seconds on the third run. The top end was 6800RPM. The setting are still very rich. It is very cold here in west TN and I had to richen up the high end over the factory setting to get it to run at Top end. So far I am very pleased with this EME 35

I have 3 of these EME 35's and all are running great. I have found that a 20x8 Xoar prop gives the most thrust at over 20lbs. I have a new EME 35 on a Fly-Model Yak 54 that weigh's in at 11.5 lbs. I am running a VV 19x8 prop on it for break-in and I am getting 7200RPM at top end with a good 1700 rpm Idle. I measured the thrust at 19lbs which makes this Yak do anything I want an it is not even broken-in yet!

Reason for asking, I am going to install one on a H9 Valiant. More sport flying than anything. I was looking at the electric starter version, wanting to make the order and get the prop I needed as well. So a 20x8 is what's needed.

A 20x8 will give you the most thrust but I would break the engine in using a 19x8 at first than do to the 20x8 after a gallon for fuel have been run threw the engine. I am still breaking in my EME-35 on my Yak 54 and it fly's very well. Just a few more tanks of fuel threw the engine and a Xoar 20x8 will be going on.

Amazing.....First time ever, except for drilling prop bolt holes in Xoar 20-8, it balanced perfectly, blades and hub, right out of the packaging. Must have been made from a very uniform piece of wood!
