Atom80 thrust


Recommended Posts

I have a PAP Tinox Atom80 with MY20 engine. Advertised thrust with 130cm prop is 55kgs @ 9800RPM. I've measured mine at 44kg @ 9500RPM.

Has anyone measured the thrust on their Atom80?

35hrs on my motor, correct run in procedure, correct fuel/oil mix 66:1 ( 1.5% ). My engine has registered a max RPM of 9530 so far, ( not getting max 9800 ).

I can't imagine 300RPM making a great difference in thrust ( 9800 instead of 9530 )

The supplied instruction manual was last updated September 2018, it does not have any information re: the new carb with high speed tuning jet.

I fly from sea level, is it possible the high speed jet needs adjusting from factory setting?

How have you measured your thrust? I'm asking as I have the same PPG as you, except I'm using an Eprop. I can measure my thrust, but not sure of the accurate way to do it
