Thanks Steve, this might be the one. I did set up a temporary connection, and I think I may not be trying with enough channels. I have a Top Flite Cessna 182, but I used an 8 channel receiver. On the...

Probably should have mentioned that I reset the carb settings before I retested the engine. However, I will do so again to ensure the adjustments are where they are supposed to be.

Thanks truckracer, I was hoping I would get another opinion. I have never given any thought about type of servo for the throttle. In any of my gassers that I have all servos match the torque and...

Thanks racer.... I will check on those I already have. They may very well be digital. So adding one more is no big deal. The irony is that the ignition box is next to the servo. It's where it needs...

Thanks David,
