Angelo,
One other thing that could be causing your problem is fuel foaming from out of balance prop and/or no foam pading under the fuel tank. That could explain while holding it verticle it runs...

The ULTIMATE FUNFLY MOTOR

Yep, I think reset may have solved the problem of early bearing failure I've had. It was very dry and dusty here this summer, we had a two month drought with no rain.

Morris Fun Design/Rossi 45 RE

I have this same combo and I found it very hard to hover for extended periods. The Morris Su-Do-khoi is much easier to hover for me. Don't know if this is due to low wing mounting in the Fun Design...

I too have been experiencing premature bearing failure since I've started long term hovering and praticing torque rolling flight after flight. The rear bearing fails after about four gallons fuel. It...

The Irvine 53 I bought a month ago has the keep running problem also, even after sealing the carb mounting o-ring.

Irvine 53

ssmith,
Yes, I have the same problem you do, it keeps idling with the throttle completely closed. One or two other people in another thread on the Irvine 53 complained of that problem also. Received...

OMP Edge??

The tower muffler has a smaller outlet than the fox mufflers, thereby somewhat quieter.

Help! Can't start my Norvel .061

fuel foaming?

From your desrciption the problem could be fuel foaming. If you're riching the high speed needle a full turn or more to get the engine to settle down that would be my guess. Use a balancer to get the...

Thunder Tiger Pro .46 loads up at mid range

I have three of the TT46. Two run slightly rich through mid-range but one did just what yours is doing. You can get a new low speed needle and hope you get one with the taper cut correctly or you can...

Os Or TTWhich One Has More Power

Boomstriker,
If you like to hover you should try an apc 12.25 x 3.75 on the TT46 or the OS46. I noticed this prop was not on your list of props, you gotta try one.

Happy Hovering

fuel tank height

One thing that could account for your problem is a lower fuel tank position in the model than you had on the test stand. One rule of the thumb is center of tank 1/4 or 3/8 inch below needle valve or...

TT bearings

After reading all the praise about the TT pro46 on the internet forums I've purchased three during the last two years for my various 40 size profile fun-flys. I must say I prefer a carb mounted...

spoilerons

Hi bigjoe,
I think the people that fly the large scale models do use spoileron when doing the harrier. It's been my experiance with the 40 size profiles that it makes them wing wobble much worse...

OS 46FX with Tower muffler

Hi V-tail,
If hovering is your interest the Psp and Jett tuned mufflers may not be the best thing for you even though they will give a higher output, rpm. It's been my experiance when hovering with...

Fox RC long glow plugs

Russian,
No, you certainly will not ruin your engine using fox plugs because they are slightly on the cold heat range. If you're using 15% fuel the fox plugs are extra insurance against preignition...

1/2 Pacer

Hi MarkD,
Well I'm certain this Pacer is derived from Ace 1/2A pacer from the mid '70s. I still have my Ace 1/2 A Pacer with Tee-Dee .051. The Ace kits I believe were 200 sq.in. wings and the wing...

Two of the three TT46s I own did exactly what Dave McDonalds TT36 did thru mid-range. I cured the problem by modifying the low speed needle to have less taper. The 3mm on the end of needle has the...

OS 46 SF Low end?

A new o-ring on the mixture screw would be the correct fix. One of my engines did the same thing and I put a drop of CA down around the the screw and that fixed it. You could still adjust it but it...
