All I used this year. Not from them, the ones 3DHS sent me from time to time with planes. Got flat rubber washers from ACE under them. Grips solid. Never come loose. Faster spin in and out putting wings on and off.

I got the ones with the studs for the 71 Slick, has a big spin on colored aluminum nut. CA'd the stud in the wing after checking for correct length into the Fuse. Those are nice! Secraft-Wing-Bolts

I just started up my extra and it worked fine. Then I cut the throttle and the restarted the engine again. The second time I ran the engine I got like no response when I gave it power..

You are going to have to some messin around to isolate the problem in order to fix it. This random guessing will result in another replacement airframe
Turn tx on then plane
Check for power to rx and servos
Check power to the motor.
Walk the 40 paces and check all again
If you can come to the conclusion that you think it may be your rx, at that point switch rx's with another plane and see if you can duplicate the problem in the other plane, If not, try to duplicate the problem in the original problem plane with another rx. If you are able to do that, then its pretty safe to assume its something other that the rx. (or two bad rx's....not likely)
Follow me? Process of elimination by use of controlled experiments. Good luck

I don't think it's a connection issue now, I tested the engine and when I gave it full throttle it barely moved up from an idle
