Default M100XBL starting issue

Hello,

first of all excuse my wrong english, I am french

I acquired a second hand M100 to go in my first jet. I don t have any experience yet with jet engines but a experimented fellow told me my instalation was good.

Here is my problem

it take a abnormal long time for fuel to ignite ( very long ignition phase ) and after that I have heavy torching during start.
I use petroleum mixed with 4 procent guenine jetmunt oil

have you contacted Jets Munt by email with your issue ? They are very helpful with suggesting ECU adjustments

Zek, what are you calling abnormally long? A video of the gcu during start up and I might be able to help you tweak a couple of things to speed it up. Could be normal but without more data I cant suggest much atm.
