Been fighting an engine dying issue when punching out inverted...

Chasing it on weekends for about 2 mos now...new lines, fuel magnet, tank and even added a header because I thought air could be getting in.......

A buddy of mine hit me up to inspect the throttle servo, but did I listen? nope....

So today I was determined to fix it or PUT IT IN HARD! I was fed up...

Finally took off the canopy and started trouble shooting.....he tells me, throw it in idle up and watch the throttle servo....so ok, hit the switch and hmmmmmm, looks fine to me....working when Im moving it......hmmmmmmm WTF could it be now...Im about to drop kick my 600LE across the runway when I see it.....WTH? why isnt it go to full throttle and .........DUH.....

When I switched models and set this up new in my 10C, I transferred EVERYTHING except the throttle curve in idle up......

LMAO

Highly Medicated for your protection......

It happens to the best of us. I like it when you have the tail gyro direction reversed. That plays out for a fun ride and a fun show. I've spooled it up 3 or 4 times thinking something would change. That's why I write everything down and reset a new model now. I then go through every screen in the radio a couple times to be sure. You should feel fortunate that you didn't smack it in the ground though. Nice story. C.J.

It's always something simple. Just when you think you have checked everything it's always the one little thing.
