engine power loss
A few weeks ago I was flying my Escapade with an O.S. 46 max AX, and in flight the engine power dropped to nearly idle while performing a roll. I got it to the ground and checked the clunk, fuel line, and throttle connections and found nothing wrong. I fueled it up and checked the engine at the vertical with the engine at full power. Again no problems, so I tool off again. It flew fine in rolls and loops, but then, at straight and level with full power, the engine cut to almost idle again. Moving the throttle had no affect on the power. I found it odd that the power was cut so drastically, but did not die. Also, there were no problems at all on the first flight of the day. Does anyone know what could have caused this?
