Default Savage 21 keeps going dead...

I've gotten my savage to start reliably, and I am almost throughthe 2nd tank of break-in. My problem is after running in an oval, like the manual says, for about 2 min or so, it goes dead. And it won't start back up until after it sits for about 5 min or so. When it goes dead, I notice that the fuel isn't going into the carb, and when I try to prime it, it still won't go into the carb. I read somewhere on here, and I think its called hydro-lock. Well, I have a heat gun and my engine isn't getting much above 225, maybe up to 250 or 265 max. I've tried riching out the fuel mixture to the point where it won't even hardly wind out. I f someone could tell what the problem is, please let me know. I need help. This is my first nitro R/C. Thanks.
