Yes we are flying !!! 🙂
Not high though, still more work to be done on the engine and maybe the propeller….
The engine is now running at about 1700rpm, but that’s not enough.
After the 3 short flights today here in Rangiora (NZRT), Warren and I started measuring the valve timing, and came to the conclusion that there is something wrong….
The exhaust starts opening tooooo early in the power cycle, when the piston is not even halfway down. So maybe there is a way to change that and not loose all that power.
So coming weekend I am going to measure and draw a nice graph with the valve timing and see what is wrong.
