seriously are you going to be going much above center stick on your first few flights on a brand new motor?

heck ya lol

you want to heat the motor up some , you dont want it cold it will never break in.

im with 0/25/50/75/100 on a 90 motor.

first flight hover a little rich in normal mode
second flight FF in normal mode
third flight idle 1
4rth flight idle 2

you need to land 2-3 times a flight to check temps and adjust needle. 1rts tank wont need much, 2nd and 3rd tank need it allot as thats when most of the ring seating will take place.

I maidened mine today, but unsuccessfully.

Motor wasn't running right at all, until I discovered there is a hole that I did not put the plug in on my Outrage pipe..... drove 1 hour to the field. had all my tools, except for that plug... bummer....

but my friend's 600 3g maidened perfectly. nice power even on 15% nitro on the OS55 motor.

Lol yes read the manual^^ this thing is kinda important...

I broke in my motor with gov on, no problem with that. You just need to keep an eye on temperature and smoke and you need to listen to the motor. I just varied in rpm, Bert and Bobby do it the same way, just with gov on (see smacktalkrc). My motor is running pretty good now...
