    I have the extra leaf. Have considered installing it.
     engine engine in prop on plane running. Carbs aren't worth a damn. But engine runs. I don't think motor mount will be strong enough

    Fabricated exhaust .....Changed the four carb  setup to dual carbs.  Seems to idle much better. Got some brain storming to do to figure carb heat.....

    I have even been thinking of an aftermarket fuel injection.

     Hirth made a lot of those f30 engines. I think most were the two carb design which I think would have a whole lot less issues. I believe I'm going to try to modify and have one single carburetor. Matt at recreational power has a lot of parts for the f30. For individual carburetors I think is a really bad design for a 2 stroke

    Got the prop installed, Attempt to rebuild carbs....come to the conclusion Mikuni pump carbs suck.....My motor mount is probably not sufficient....anyway, it did run!

    Hirth F30 Carbs (Mikuni Super BN 38)
    Anyone out there have experience tuning Mikuni pump carbs? I have never worked on these type carbs. Having 4 of them seems to add a level of complexity that sucks....Figured i'd hit up the forum....
    Engine running super lean and fast throttles all completely closed. I am thinking that with the extremely low manifold pressure and having a high pop off pressure (55psi) was the problem.
    The pilot jet is a 77.5 and the high is a 80. The needle is a 1.5. This combo does mot line up with anything on Mikuni's charts.
    I'm changing the spring to make the pop off pressure to 22psi. Any thoughts?

    more pics..........found some red lawn chair cushions at Walmart....Elevator trim servo works great. digital readout on the display 1000 to 2000, 1500 worked out to be direct center.Controller is a servo tester.

    Ivo uses the same hub i believe.There are spacers needed. Thrust issues may be a issue with the ultralight model, I think the medium model would do ok repitching......

    What I like about the Ivo prop is if you have a 3 blade and you ding one you can change it to 2 blade really easy

    Absolutly. Would love sticks that are bent.back. Would love to see your  plane close up maybe even a ride......This engine should go like a raped ape. Do you have a opinion on props, 3 blase vs 2 blade brand, Ive been really looking at ivoprop.

    Im not sure about quality.....This is the first plane ive ever done. Im cutting my teeth on this one. Its a learning project. Looking forward to building a bigger plane. Trying to save every dime i can. Paint is rustolium enamel. I experimented with catalyst from super flight. it worked to my surprise. I just rolled it on. did not feel like spraying.....
