Ok iam not a newbie to Helis or any RC models
, its been in my blood for over 25 years....
anyway i got this prob with the old SX 50 H-ring motor...its been in my ERGO 50 Schwietzer for about 7-8 years, i used to fly it every two-three weeks then life changed and started to fly less...i start this Heli every two or three months but normaly i would start it every month if i didnt forget ... but recently i cant seem to start her after leaving it for 4 months on the shelf with afterrun (not in carb), now for two weeks in a row i charged all batteries, tanked up and using my 180 Hobbyco starter with a large size 12v car battery ... tried to get her going...normaly with some turns she starts....but this time she blocks on what i think is the upstroke then turns better down stroke, i remove the plug and she turns with ease...as u know this is normal but the thing is ive burned out my 180 starter trying to get her going, my old 60 starter makes about two turns slowly, just not enough power there, em..i'am pulling my hair out whats left of it [&:] ...i looked at the carb setting and it seems to be set right with the switch on the transmitter, this switch sets the idle to a normal level to start her and also sliding the throttle slider on transmitter to give more throttle, ive not had to move any settings since she was first installed...but something is not right, the car battery went low on juice and starter cables hot.. this is not a heavly used motor, this Heli has never been upsidedown either, i fly her for the semi scale and the thrill, she is realy an old JRPropo beauty...check my photos and you will see her..
Can some one help me out if they think they know what the prob is please.
also i got no air-cleaner on the carb...some how either i had one and lost it or i never put one on...its escaped me
