Default DA 50 wont run up

Looking for some input on my DA 50, First flight started right up second flight started right up third time, it will only idle, it boggs out when I throttle up. Its a well broken in engine with a relatively new ignition, I pulled the carb and its clean as a whistle. Plug? a 6 volt pa NiMh pack was reading 6.5 volts. Any Ideas? Thanks for looking and helping.

While the carb may be clean, have you confirmed the internal screen will pass fuel? Sometimes a clear material will form on the screen that prevents fuel from passing even though the screen looks clean. Remove and confirm it will allow fuel to pass through it.

Truckracer is correct on the screen issue . Nine times out of ten people overlook the screen thinking it looks clear but actually has a restrictive film build up in the weave of the screen . The screen can be removed and carefully cleaned but replacing it is always the best solution
