So, new motor!!
Today i'm working late so got up nice and early and headed to the club, nobody here so no one to annoy while tuning!
Wow! What a change! Initially i was worried as i couldnt get it to start but it turns out it arrived with the low needle at one turn out and the high completely closed.
After 10 mins of tuning i had it in the air!!
First flight it was gurgling quite a bit so for the 2nd i leaned it slightly.
For the 2nd flight it sounded like gradually through the flight it was loosing power at high revs, to the point that i cut the flight early and landed.
When i pick up the plane and point it say 45 degrees down the engine slows, and nose up the engine speeds up??
Does this mean bad carb like said earlier or is this normal?
Its doing the same on uplines in flight, definetely loosing power as it climbs.
Finally, flying on. 16x8, would the be 16x9 better for pattern flying or the 8?
