Re: Evolution .61 NT break in

Hummm, I ran mine on an Alpha 60 and had two flights - with blac
exhaust on the wing from both flights.
Being brand new.....wouldn't this be somewhat normal? And no, th
muffler isn't loose :)
It must be a GREAT day to go flying -cuz I live in Arizona :

Same here. And the performance on the engine was good and it did not seem to lack compression or have any weird grinding feeling after the break in period.
I will contact evolution engines and see what they mention.
Since this engine does have the SetRight system it shouldn't permit you to run it lean.

I have an Evo .46 but have had no black residue in the exhaust at all. I also have a gasket between the muffler and crankcase, not sure about the .60 version. The engine runs and flies great.
The set right system will not allow the engine to be run lean unless bypassed or altered for the most part. However, there have been cases where the factory messed up and the needle settings were incorrect. I agree that a call to Horizon Hobby is in order.
