We are stumped. Even emailed Milton @ rcexcel. Was thinking it might be the ign. box but am getting good spark.
A couple ideas: A good starting point for carb is low needle, 1-1/3, hi needle, 1-3/4, as jedijody said in post 377 and that seems to be the best setting I can come up with. Also, I needed to solder a tube to the ambient pressure diaphragm cover on the carb, and run tubing behind the engine, as the prop blast was creating problems. Also, you might think of tossing the CRRC hall sensor.
