Default ZDZ 80 rv tuning

I have a zdz80 on a KS89 can,swinging a mejzlick 26x10,engine has 5 gallons of mobile mx2t @ 32:1 and now running mobil @ 40:1. The engines mid range on the throttle sags a bit,when I get into a hover or rolling harriers you have to keep the throttle at the top end of the stick for good transition but thats to much throttle.Is there any way to get a smooth mid range for better 3d flying?

You need to go with a longer header length to soften the midrange. Typical setup should have at least a 12" header.
Even still a tuned setup will be finicky.
Thanks

Mike, the header is atleast 12" long by the time it wraps around under the belly,it's set up on the H9 sukhoi. I guess what I asking is if I adjust the timing will that help any? If so which way do I move the sensor and or adjust the needles? Pretty much everything is still factory set.
