Default New Engine!

My new Titan IO-370 arrived yesterday . It has 9.6:1 compression ratio, dual Pmags, AFP 150 injector, cold air sump, and most importantly shiny rocker covers. Ill be mating it to a catto 3-blade prop. Props to J.B. at continental for making it an easy process!

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Very nice! What is the diameter and pitch of your new prop?

Iím going with a 66x78 3 blade. Iíve been hyper focused on weight during the build, so Iím hoping a light airframe and high hp will offset the course pitch when it comes to climb rate.

Same engine but with Bendix mags, you're gonna love it!
I suggest you be careful with the timing on those PMAGS, high compression, advanced timing, and a hot engine will narrow the detonation margin significantly. They spec the timing at 20deg on these engines for a reason.
