    If you have an air leak in the bottom end a new carb will not help.
    Box it up and send it back to one of the distributors.

    In fact the 2.4 systems I know of put out less than 0.1 watt.Also the atmospheric loss is much greater at 2.4 than it is on 72. The savings grace on 2.4 is spread spectrum systems are capable of up...

    Yes all radios can fail but those on 72 are mire likely to because they have more fragile parts in addition to the interference problem.

    wow lucky you
    I had four incidents during my days on 72. A friend of mine lost a $1000 Byron Pitts due to screw up by the impound crew.
    None of these would have happened if we had been on 2.4

    There is one significant thing wrong with 72 as compared with 2.4. It is wide open to interference, both from external devices, and devices carried within your aircraft.

    I saw people flying reeds several years after propo came out. Eventually they all died out.
    Some people are just not comfortable with anything new.Eventually they will discover what they are missing.

    I ran gas engines for 10 years before the glow plug came about. My favorite engines were the Orwik 64 and the Anderson Spitfire 65. As I recall we used 70 wt oil with a 4/1 mixture.

    The interference they are talking about is to the radio. It will not interfere with the ignition.
    If a long wire is connected loosely to the engine, it will make and break contact under vibration....

    Actually gasoline has more lubricity than alcohol. Alcohol has none. So you can use less oil in the mixture.
    My NGH26 does not have roller bearings on the rod. It is happy with a 30/1 mixture.

    I think you should get out that spectrum and get rid of those 16 receivers while you can.

    Why?
    1) You dont have to worry about others shooting you down.
    2) you dont have to worry about...

    If you are on 2.4 forget it. All of that interference crap has gone away with 72.

    The 1/4x32 plugs are more delicate and they cost 3x the CM6.
    I would think 32/1 would be OK.But it would be safer to go to 30/1 on the other engines.

    I have an NGH26. Its a great engine. But both the 17 and mine do not have roller bearings on the rod lower end. So you are stuck with a 30/1 mixture with 20/1 better.
