    I'm not sure if this helps but I got it from "Sky Ray" site.
    Typical RPM range for Engine and Prop. Prop Recommendations? Any problems running max RPM for extended time at cruise?
    ( 3800 to 4200 cruise. 5000 to 5200 max depends on gear ratio. The longest we have ran one at max power is 2 hours.)

  10. smartguy added a post in a topic Matco MH whls run tubeless   

    I see that the WHLWI62L and the MH wheel are different where the o-ring would seat. The WHLW wheel has no groove where the o-ring would set like the MH wheel.  Thank  for the input.

    Thanks Flywise,
    You are echoing my fears on the o-ring kit. You just saved me a few bucks and more importantly headaches. There is no substitute for experience!

    Matco MH whls run tubeless
    Has anyone run the Matco MH series wheels tubeless? Matco offers a o-ring and valve stem kit so you can use them with tubeless tires but I was wondering if anyone has experience with this setup. Dresser tire now has the 8.50x6x4 tundra tire that can be run  tubeless at slightly more $ than the tube type but not as much as a tube would be and you could lose the weight of the tube.

    It sold in March of 2016 with a bad engine in the 14's if I remember correctly. I think it came with a spare engine but I might be wrong. I was interested then but too late when I saw the ad as it had already sold.
