That happens when your fuel has moisture in it, you don't run the engine completly out of fuel, and when you don't use after run oil. There still nothing wrong with it though.

Why? You didn't even ask him how it ran. I have seen the insides of engine that look much worse than that but run fine.

hahah good one aznbash3r. this goes to all people who say "no i never used after run oil" "i never run out my fuel"

they also have never opened up thier engine before either hahahaha

anyway the rust inside is definitly not good. take it aprt and clean the rust off. if there is rust in the bearings you need to change the bearings. if its just a crap rtr engine, then just bash it till it dies.

well i put after run fuel all the time, but dont really run the engine dry. as long as theres no fuel in the line, i put the ARO lol. the bearings are alright, they are nicely lubricated by the ARO (as seen in pics, but too blurry to see ) im pretty sure thats the only part of the engine that has some spots of rust. it runs fine though, so i guess it should be alright.
