Default P-51 Mustang PTS RTF Engine

I have a P-51 Mustang PTS RTF. It currently has an Evolution .40 2-stroke engine. I started it once when I first got it and now it won't start at all. I've replaced the glow plug, ensured the glow plug ignitor was working by putting the glow plug directly on the ignitor and have changed from 30% fuel to 15% fuel. Not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

There is a huge thread about this plane in the ARF and RTF section. Try posting your question there as there are a lot of guys with experience with that plane. There are several modifications that are being recomended also in that thread. If you have the RTF version it is actually a .45 size engine not a .40. This is a good engine, very reliable. Look at the low speed needle, it has a limiting collar on it, blue in color. It has the tendacy to "walk" when moving the throttle. This might be your problem with it running. The collar hits the cowl and changes the settings. The collar is easily removed. Anyways check the other thread out for a ton of info on your plane.
