This is a excellent engine. Mine after breakin starts in one hand flip. No electric start needed. Idle is slow and perfect, transition to power smooth and fast. Weight is low for the size. Power is similar to a 46 size two stroke and perfect for a 40 size plane on a trainer or sport plane. Shooting touch and goes is so much fun as the engine never dies or stumbles. I use it in flight training and so in two years of use it has many 100s of flights on it, still runs perfect.
This is a very nice engine. After breakin it idles with perfect reliability, has good power for any 40 size plane, starts easily with hand flipping and just runs perfectly flight after flight.
Low weight, modest size as well, does not use a lot of fuel, super price, what more can you want? I also purchased the 52 size one but it is little low on power. This one is perfect.
moteur rapport qualit prix imbattable a recommander
rodage long mais quand il est bien fait on est rcompens
Sempre dei preferncia aos motores O.S. Max. Aps experimentar a marca ASP, fiquei surpreendido! No deixa nada a desejar das grandes marcas. Adquiri o ASP FS61AR para uso em um Avistar Elite e posso afirmar que o motor muito bom. Tive um probleminha com vazamento em um o-ring do carburador, mas nada que uma substituio rpida no resolva. O motor funciona sempre na primeira tentativa e consegui regular a marcha lenta sem problemas. Excelente motor!
Just installed a ASP FS61 in a Great Planes 60 Trainer, This is a super little engine, I have fitted the plane with an onboard - glow system. the engine starts first time and will tick over nice and slowly. I now have 3 ASP engines (1,Two stroke and 2 four strokes) I can not fault the quality of these engines. I will be more than happy to purchase more ASP engines.
This is a gutless engine! I bought it for a .46 size cessna 182 and there is no where near enough power to get enough ground speed! I started with a 12x6 prop....not enough rpm to get ground speed.....
Tried a 11x6 prop.....engine revving hard enough for the valves and piston to become one, still not enough ground speed......
Tried 11x7 prop.....same as the above. It is now the worlds most expensive paper weight........
During running in with the recommended propoller and fuel the piston rod bottom bearing broke off.
Very bad engine !
On receiving the engine I checked the inlet and exhaust ports for leakage using clean fuel and found none, though a small amount is not really a problem. I ran the engine in using the excellent procedure from Just Engines and this engine now turns a 14x4 Master Airscrew prop at up to 10,000 rpm, with a steady idle around 2,400 to 2,500 rpm. Very pleased with it.
Generally speaking I don't think ASP engines have the same QC as OS, but the ASP FS61AR I have recently bought from the European HobbyKing warehouse really seems to be an excellent example. After about 1 1/4 hours of running in (following a careful routine set down by a popular rival importer in the UK) the one I bought is achieving a steady idle of 2400 rpm and top speed of 10,000 on a 14x4 Master Airscrew prop. This equates to about 0.9HP. Very good performance. No valve leak discernible when testing the ports checking for gas leakage through oil. Seems to prefer the 14x4 to a 13x4 - perhaps more efficient running with the extra flywheel effect of the heavier prop.
Some minor imperfections in the finish of the cast crankcase, but really - who cares! Still top quality marks as it is such a good performer. Running on 5pcnt nitro, idle valve at factory setting and main needle at about 1 1/4 turns out from closed, just before max revs and with exhaust still a little wet with oil. I did manage to get it down to 2000 rpm, but it did not sound quite right, but this may improves once more fuel has gone through.
This engine is a bargain. It's the same crankcase as the .52 four stroke but almost 20pcnt more displacement and power. And, 2.5 grams lighter than the .52 four stroke. The engine is nicely made with a good fit and finish. Without touching either mixture, it started up on the first flip. I broke the engine in using the recommended 12x6 prop (in this case, an APC). I ran the engine rich between 5000 and 6000 rpm on Omega 15pcnt fuel. After accumulating 30 minutes of running time with three cool down periods, I opened the throttle to full open and began leaning out the mixture. With the mixture still slightly rich, it turns the APC 12x6 at 9800rpm. Perfect! It idles down around 3000 smoothly and transitions easily back to full throttle. At idle, my plane sits still without creeping forward. So far, I'm very pleased and impressed with the engine. Especially, since it's only about nine bucks more than the .52 and way less than OS or Saito...or even the Magnums which share the same crancase. Like I said, it's a bargain!
