I am with wronk way, justt I set my needles with very little movment at a time. This will help you from passing the setting that you need to be at, takes a little longer, but will help you learn the sounds and what to look for

when starting the nitro engines they do get extra fuel in the carbs, leave the glow warmer on it and work the throttle a few times while it is running to clear some of the extra fuel out, then remove the warmer
