I "may" have led you astray, but I don't think so... There is the TS-85 Ferrari Red.. and also the TS-8 Italian red. My problem, is that I has open cans of both in my paint locker. That said...I am still pretty darn sure it is the TS-85 Ferrari red....

guys.. im just back from first test of osgt33... (mine failure)... the only setup mistake might be that i made loop over tank and in vent line and in line to carburator...(should fuel line to carburator go straight or with loop over fuel tank?)
i did not touch stock needle settings and seemed to take forever for fuel to get to carb...
and even when it did, i couldnt start engine... most what it did was 1-2 blows and thats it...(and yes, i DID open choke...)

You want your vent line to loop and your line from the tank to the carb to be as strait and short as possible. Here is a couple of pics to help

hmmm..ok, ill try to shorten carb fuel line... ehh...
basically here is how i understand starting...
switch all on, close choke, throttle 5-10%, flip the prop while fuel gets to carb, open choke, and continue flipping prop while engine starts...

You are right on, and some times you have to start with the throttle up a little as well. When I started my OS for the first time a few weeks ago I was flipping for a while before it ran as well. It can help some times to squirt a little fuel right into the carb to get it wet as well. The other thing too with the OS ignitions they will allow the engine to pop backwards and theKM recommended a slower flip and a bump of throttle to avoid that.

Since the ETA page is gone, is there any official word of when these will be back in stock? I'm in need of a replacement since I sold my old 70 to a local friend...

Is the ignition plugged in correctly? Can you try a different plug?

As for stock on the 71" electric my bet would be august 6th. Seems that is when other planes are due in stock.

should the spark be under 1mm or over 1cm big? and sound should be barely audible or clear and loud when checking plug? i am about to order another plug just to make sure...

correctly? servo lead with b/r/w goes to engine rpm sensor and other lead with only r/b goes to ibec.... ibec led is on so ibec should be geting power...

sounds like you have the right spark I was thinking that unplugging and then replugging in the ignition module might help get more current to the ignition.
