We have a problem with our engine. We did a dead stick landing with this plane and the engine struck the ground first. Know when you crank the engine it idles fine thottle responce is good but when the engine reaches top rpm it kicks back and dies, what is wrong

Thanks Bob

Try going into the glow engine forum then to the Saito factory support and ask your question. A lot of us have some pretty good ideas but your better off speaking with the factory people. Back fire usually means a lean condition but I have also had the same problem after crashing a plane and bending the crank and rod a little. Better to get expert advise then having people guess.

If you didn't damage the plane, your clunk tubing could have folded over to the front in the tank causing this problem.

See, another good idea. Try only filling the tank about 1/4 full and see what happens. If it's the main line it shouldn't start at all.
