RE: Air bubbles in fuel line ?

I am not sure but I am amazed that you found this thread that is over 2 years old . I gave up on that Magnum engine 2 years ago and have never tried it on another plane ever since . Good luck .

RE: Parkzone Typhoon 3D ?

RE: Parkzone Typhoon 3D ?

RE: Air bubbles in fuel line ?

RE: Air bubbles in fuel line ?

The needle valve is on the carb . I am thinking the bubbles may have nothing to do with it . It just dose not want to run . I have got it running a few times but it always ends up running ruff or...

RE: Air bubbles in fuel line ?
