performance issue on take off

by Jeff Laporte
(Liverpool NY)

I have a new, broken in Super tigre G51 on a Hanger 9 xtra easy trainer plane. New fuel 10%, fuel tank and lines. Engine runs great on the test table and while in the air. It lags and labors on take off and for the first loop.

then it clears up and runs great. I fully warm it up and check the adjust before every flight. I have 5 flights on this motor and it was broken in on a test stand with three full tanks of fuel. The field I fly at has a grass runway.

Once it is in the air and running good. This plane screams. Fast and fun to fly. I am using an APC 11x6 prop.
