Well,Horizon had me return the Formula Hydro to the dealers,and exchange it for another one. This one actually runs!
Well most all of the time![
] The boat goes like a Bat out of &%^$#,UNTIL you turn right! Then it just dies? We ran it 14 times yesterday,and after easing it out onto the course,and slowly building up speed around turns 3-4,then blasting it down the front streach,it runs fine. Then entering into turn 1 it runs fine,UNTIL you round the start of turn 2.Then, just shuts off like you hit the kill switch!It did this 14 times in a row![:@] If you placed a marker in the turn,and it would die in the exact same spot every time.[
] At first we thought it might be a fuel issue,but the priming blub is full as well as the fuel line. Then we thought the fail safe was shutting the motor down,from the 2 servos,drawing too much power from the reciever pack, (1600Mah located in the cockpit of the boat). This boat is wearing me out![
] The first boat had the header bent wrong,and sprayed water into the engine compartment,from the tuned pipe coupling. Raised the tuned pipe,and new Orings to seal that up,but the motor ran lean no matter what setting you used on the needles. This boat (#2)came out of the box with the left rear upright finn cracked and chipped,and someone tried to cover it up with paint,and the left rear of the hull cracked,but runs great (as long as your going straight),but dies in the turn! I'm runnig out of ideas on what to do. I thought that TODAY I might try to run it without the fail safe in and see if that's what's killing the engine in the turns, (I'm running out of ideas). Ron
