down the club today hoping for a nice flying session,new parts on set back to factory settings and still not running right,but after about an hour it wont even start now,healthy spark petrol but wont fire up even though it gives a good kick back now and again,re done the tank and with another ign module but still the same,charged the battery and even swapped it with a identical engine but still the same,so I'm thinking its got to be the battery even though my charger says its full,as my battery checkers no good is there anything ive missed or I can try,(before tempers get to bad) many thx Andy

make sure carb getting fuel ie no problems with tank.. then if you can get to it squirt fuel into carb.Also dont take factory settings as being right the needles may need to be taken out further.

as ive tried two engines with the same results its got to be fuel or spark but both seem good,im still going electric as when it was still running it was as if the ign was cutting in and out at low rpm but it all seems to check out ok so it could be fuel ,lol

Check the new block hasn't got a hole where it shouldn't or no hole where there should be one .Just a thought.

well its sorted now ,couldnt work out which one of these was the culprit so to be on the safe side i changed the ign module for a rce xl one instead of the Chinese one and bypassed the switch and alls fine,but both tested out ok unless they were breaking down under load,but at least I should be able to sleep tonight with out it playing on my mind.dscf1356.jpg
