Default Super Tigre 4500 (ST 4500)

Anyone have experiences with Super Tigre 4500 for 3D Flying? Any issues around it during flying? I am planning put it on H9 Extra 260.

Good motor, it'll eat you out of house and home when it comes to burning nitro. Should do very well on the 260

We need pics Dhanni,

I understand, from guys that run the big ST motors, you want to keep the oil and nitro down. 15% oil is a good choice and 10% or less nitro is also a good choice. That should put out a ton of power for that plane.

Pics, pics and more pics!

Dhanni,
Make your own fuel. Go to VP and get 5 gal. M-1 methanol for about $25-$27, add Klotz or Sig castor (less expensive, $8 quart) Viola! For your I would go with about 16% oil wich is 20.5 oz oil and 108 oz. Methanol. I use this in my Moki and it is awesome. Just a though. Good luck

Dhanni, I have run a ST4500 successfully for years in scale airplane fantastic power and reliability.
Make sure you don't run to much oil, I have always run cool power syn at 12% and no nitro. starting has always been very easy. BTW I run on board glow that comes in at 1/4 throttle to keep the fire burning.

This is the real big "mama" glow engine installed on this plane, before i installed the YS140FZ but the performance not enough for huck'n on the sky....
So far, i am still got problem with ST4500 when slow invert flying or torque roll or named in 3d, the engine always dead@#!~... i am running no nitro, 15% oil...
i heard "perry pump" is usefull for this engine...any comments?

One thing to check, are you using large fuel tubing?

Might have to bump to 5% or 10% nitro.

Tigers are usually run on 10-12% oil and either 0 or 5% Nitro. You are not going to fix the deadstick issue on a 3D plane without a fuel pump, I have tried Perry's before, no luck. One thing you might want to look into is the Cline regulator system, lotta guys with Moki's use it, although my Moki ran great by itself. I personnaly would not use a glow motor on a 3D plane(except a YS of course), you are asking for trouble, one of the benefits of gas is the pumper carb. You might try an OS 4-stroke plug, most guys I know use em in the bigger motors, Tigers, OS BGX, Moki's, etc.

If the fuel tank height is good, then fit an on board glow unit problem fixed.
