We put another guys 15% fuel into the plane and it flew great. This engine is suppose to be good for 10% also. What could cause this? Could it be bad fuel? Or a tuning Problem? Any suggestions appreciated.
HI,
i'M KINDA NEW LIKE YOU, BUT i'VE LEARNED WHEN YOU GET AN ENGINE RUNNING GOOD ON A CERTAIN TYPE AND PERCENTAGE OF NITRO, STAY WITH IT, CUZ EVERY TIME YOU CHANGE, YOU HAVE TO ADJUST THE MIXTURE. AND i THINK AN ENGINE SORTA GETS USED TO A DERTAIN FUEL. i RUN MY eVO .46 ON 15% AND IT LOVES IT.
