I have had mine 4 months an i am yet to get a consistent run out of it.
I may have the old carb and that could be my problem but at the moment my hypers out fly it every time and i am running 30% nitro.

Does any one know where to buy a new type carb in the UK?

I have had mine for 17 gallons now and it has always run consistently, and it got a lot better after I put the new carb on in and took out the head shim. It is also my first nitro engine, so I have learned/learning tuning on it and it has been forgiving with no problems.

A quick search on TT53 will give you many threads about this subject and people's experience with them. I personally really liked mine.

I have a TT53 in my extreme, And am very happy with it. It has the original carb and I run a carbsmart on it, 20/20 LV coolpower fuel, OS-8 plug. More power than my hyper, But initially a bit trickier to tune. (before the carbsmart was set). I do However have two mates who have had loads of issues with theres. Both with old and new carbs. They always seem to run lean. Im happy with mine tho and wont be changing the carb anytime soon either...I think there a bit hit and miss, you either get a good one or a bad one. Bit like the old TT's.......Just my 2 cents anyway.

mine is the original carb ~ which pisses me off as I bought it a month ago...

but after a couple flights today, i am certain this thing has way more power than my hyper...

its not perfectly tuned yet, but its pretty close...

if my hyper gives up, ill replace it with a TT53
