Default Internal Gas Canister & Fire

[X(] There was an incidence that the model caught on fire due to propane/butane gas build up inside a closed-fuselage. This happened after 4 unsuccessful starts with ignition lit on the 5th start. There was significant gas fume left inside the fuselage that quickly caught on fire. Start fail sequences does not mean malfunction within the system but could be caused by over-pressured or inferior propane/butane gas or too low "Glow Plug" value set on the TEMS. The senario here could be caused by over-pressured canister and after 4 releases, the pressure was correct and ignition took place. Use only recommended propane/butane mix and please make sure that the model is well ventilated and facing toward the wind. After each unsuccessful start, the excess gas fume must be ventilated from the model before another start is attempted.
