well i could not keep my heli runing and now since i have learned how to tune it the throttle lever came off .

heli started to scream and so did i lol.

i had to wait until it ran out of fuel but what a ride

i got it all together after i stopped shaking

same thing happened to me at the field long time ago.

and thank you to the members who helped me to get her tuned

wish you could have been here to shut it off
lol

thanks guys

I wonder if a device exists which will pinch the fuel line and stop fuel to the carb, operated from a spare channel on the radio.

if it wont run on the ground i dont think it will fly in the air

lol or should i get it running and then just take off and let it cut off and crash?

maybe you know a better why to make it run idle and accelerate
smooth enough to take off .

im sorry but im lost with your question.

Wow, I would not fly a nitro without making sure the engine is running good before I take off.
Unlike electrics, A nitro will stop running in mid air.
If you are not experienced with auto-ing then you are up the creek with out a paddle!

Not all people do it. But I have noticed over the years those that check how well the engine is running on the first flight, don't have a many engine problems in the air!

But each of these engines are different and can run different.
I encourage newbies to let the engine run the first flight for 1 min on the ground and then pump the throttle a couple times. To make sure it is responding right!

Have a great day!

OK here is the story
i was starting up the Helli and it kept shutting off because the low needle was to lean.

Watch at YouTube

so im idle tuning and checking throttle acceleration.

what was i do to .

go to the field and take off and then tune ?

i prefer checking everything on the ground before i take to the sky.

You cant tell what needs to be adjusted from the ground except for the low end needle. The high needle needs to be tuned in the air.

Check your fuel lines and reset the needles back to factory settings.

When the throttle went to an idle why not stop the blades with the head button and then pinch the exhaust deflector closed? The rpms definitely got low enough at one point to do that in the vid.

It's almost like flying a TOYOTA when the throttle sticks

Oh yeah! I can happen several ways. IRCHA 2007 had a scale Jet Ranger with TT .70 all ready to lift off and the carb arm screw came loose at about 50% throttle. Sure was a big tank of fuel.

Next time, Raptor 50 in idle-up 2 and throttle servo died. Flew that whole tank flipping and flopping, looping, everything I could do to keep that rotorhead loaded up all the way to full blown auto after the fuel ran out. My buds just thought I was flying nuts and stopped laughing when I pulled off the around the trees auto. Really windy day.

Fly long enough and you too can have some fun with the throttle stuck in some position that you don't want and can't kill the engine. Just don't run out of altitude,rotorspeed and ideas until the fat lady sings. Oh yeah, the heli will tell you when the end of the tank is upon you, that is when the engine makes the jump to lightspeed and screams like a girl getting an engagement ring. Just remember to breath, don't squeeze the transmitter so hard, it's only plastic, and then take a whiz after you land.
