Hi everybody

Has anyone of you got good results with the nexus legato, (O"S" four strokes
52)
I find this machine very "sluggish" and it seem to be "out of power".  I
tested the
motor on a bench and it's perfect (reaches over 9000 rpm), hovering pitch is
set at 4 degres but still it seem to be overloaded.

Thanks for your help

Hey, no offence intended but if you had asked about the Legato before you
bought it you could have saved yourself a lot of headaches.  I had one for
about 3 months and was lucky to get half of what I paid for it when I sold it.
It is nothing but trouble and expensive to fix. Example: when the header pipe
strips out the threads in the muffler from vibration  ( it will)  it costs
about $80.00 to replace them.  The starter shaft pin constanty breaks because
it's the same one they use in the 2 stroke Nexus.  Boom strikes are common
because of the flapping head and the torque usually rips out the top of the
frame when it goes. Good luck.

I have seen one or two fly OK. No rocketship, but they can
cruise around nicely. You pretty much need a head
temp. guage to set them up right.

You'll hear the same story from many Legato owners (like myself).
Sell the engine or keep it for a plane (like I did) and put in a OS 32sx-h.

I can't agree with you on boom strikes with the flapping head.  I have the
flapping head on my Nexus 46 and have never had a boom strike.  I have,
however, had boom strikes with the standard head.

In regards to R/C helicopters, it's not how often you crash, it's how often
you want to upgrade.

Boom strike is not engine depended. Blades to loose in blade holders and
hard landing can cause boom strike.

Bonjour,

A quel endroit est-ce que tu voles ?

Moi je vole avec un petit groupe de pilotes d'helico au club Mars a Lachenaie
(sur la 640
pres de Repentigny).
