It could even be the size of the fuel line restricting the flow, but my money is on the throttle not opening fully.
It was Steel Developments that suggested the prop size. Steel
I have one of the propulse props which i havent tried yet, was set on buying a new metal prop. I will try that on various pitches and see how i get on.
Engine has 100hrs and has been serviced twice. So discounting that maybe!
What diameter pipe should fuel line be?
Gear linkage is quite stiff so maybe routing for that and throttle cable is bad, stopping throttle from opening fully. How would I check (take engine cover off and see if throttle body turns to stops, if visible)?
Like you say the camel boats weigh alot more than my setup.
Thanks for the pointers.
