    Be sure to enlarge the locker access. One of the few faults with those floats.

    Thank you Stuart. I know mine works at idle which is about 650 RPM. Perhaps they only guarantee it to 900.

    I believe it says it cuts off at about 450, which is actually lower than my idle so I can’t really say. With the lightweight composite props it’s pretty hard to get the idle real low because there’s...
