Ok then, you must be the only person in the world then.

I'm sure there must be many more.

Perhaps I should just change the sub and ask how many have prob's...

Just bought one a few days ago and during my serach on the sub I encountered several posts regarding crappy performance which prompted my earlier post.

I am using one. I like the performance, but my pump leaks a bit and there is fuel on the bottom of my heli now when I run (this started after about 20 flights).

I recently got a Cline modded carb and regulator, so no more pump, and now it runs about the same (which is very well!), I just don't have the fuel leaking issue anymore. My leaking issue is the same as the one posted by a guy with the username "sookainen" in this message board. He appears to have fixed it by replacing the bearings, so maybe next season I'll put the pump back on after replacing the bearings and give it another try.

The thing I liked most about the pump is it ran with no tank pressure, so no exhaust fumes or backpressure fumes in the tank.

The only problem I had with mine was I was a dumb@#$!@ and ran it on the first flight with both the high speed and midrange needles completely closed. The engine obviously overheated, and died - and wouldn't restart due to the damage the engine received from running so lean.

After I replaced the piston, ring, and sleeve (which were all trashed due to the above mistake), and setting the needles properly, it's been running quite well. No leaks, no problems, nothing. It starts on the first turn of the starter every time

Though in all fairness, the engine is still pretty new.
