Tried my YS 61 for the first time Sunday and, well, not good.

It coughed and sluttered at first eventually we got the guts to take of but the tail shook like I've never seen (especially with a 601 and 9251).

We have never tried to set up a YS 61 before it seems to have loads of power but can you offer any help on setup.

A copy of the manual might be a good start and an idea of which teedle does what might come in handy.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dave, you can hold onto the in the bin comment.

Dont think I am being funny , but you should try changing the fuel you use first and have a play with that . Most YS engines call for 15% - 30 % nitro and seem to favour synthetic oil the most. I believe you mentioned the guy you got it from was running on cool power ???

Try a tank of wildcat,magnum or coolpower and see what happens.
Glad to hear you got it in the air though ..

the long needle is the hover. this is used for around the hovering position only. the smaller one is the high needle and is used for full throttle.

here is a YS61 manual
.YS Instructions

or if it is a YS61 ST2 you want these ones.
YS 61 ST2 manual

once you get the needles set the YS will be superb, getting them set is a bit footery but once they are set you can pretty much forget about them.

the YS will be happy on 30% and it will run on 15% but not as well.

well i don't have a 61 but, on my 80 and my 91 the longer needle is the hover (midrange) needle, the small needle is the high speed needle, and the screw is idle needle, c-ya Ron

Please cancel my clearance, I have the field in sight. Got my RW Turbine Waiver, need lottery!

the idle is the scew in the barrel of the carb.
no, that is incorrect. It is the screw just like hotwings said....the screw that is on the same side as the two needles. If you adjust the screw inside the throttle barrel, you will lose throttle control because the control horn will fall off. the YS 60 all the way to the YS 91 is the same needle wise...

I have only run 15% nitro in my YS61ST2 and it runs great. I'll have to give 30 a go to see what the big deal is

Getting the needles right will make all the difference then you wont want to run any other engine

Laughing at yourself will lengthen your life. Laughing at me will shorten it...
