    Your nose strut may be too long. If it's too light on the nose wheel it will bounce easily. Measure the center of the airfoil at the front and back next to the fuse. The front should be slightly...

    My M90 starts fine with no flames. My only complaint is that it takes a full minute to go through the start sequence.

    You could no doubt reduce flames during the start sequence by tweeking some...

    David,

    Read post #10. Go with the simple solution. SLOW DOWN YOUR FUEL FILL RATE and your problem will go away. Try a simple experiment where you cut your fill rate in half and see!

    AKB,

    You're looking at the wrong page in the manual. The recommended CG range for the Skymaster 1/7.5 version is 290-300 mm. The 230-250 mm. range you quoted is for the Xtreme 1/9.5 version. ...

    For each jug in question, pour a small amount into a glass jar and set it out in the sun. If oil has been added you should see an oily residue left in the jar after the kero evaporates.

    We can disagree about whether or not it's a good idea, but you can't disagree with physics. Carbon fiber does in fact interfere with radio waves. That's why some radio manufacturers offer...
