All things considered, that was a nice save. You were in a regime of flight that is nearly impossible to recover from.

Do you have your idle-up curves set up? Something that has helped me over the years, and may help with your tuning, is to put the helicopter on the ground, spool it up, switch into idle-up while still on the ground and then go to full negative collective. You should be on the ground at full negative pitch and exhaust shooting upward. It is a relatively safe way to put near maximum load on the engine without experiencing what you just went through. It is also easier to get good temperature reading because it is quicker to spool down and approach the helicopter - you don't have to land.

Just a thought...

I noticed my OS32 has problems transiting off from LS to HS needle. It doesn't matter where I set the needles. The whole time, I was running under 75%, when I wanted the extra 25% more power. The HS needle is giving me issues.

The carb is 3H, I am gonna stop for now until my 20C carb comes in. Dave here on RR express the 3H is junk. Better off waiting for the 20C carb.

When I go past 75%, motor leans out big time!.

Looking at fuel lines and everything regarding fuel delivery. Don't see any issues, maybe I got something inside the carb. I will take it apart to make sure.

No a Golden Retriever....but doesn't look like the dog's hair.\

Looks like laundry lint! My wife has been working around my helicopters with lint cleaning!

LS to HS needles

Seems normal, now need to go fly it to see how Head Speed hold up with 9 degree pitch and 5 degree cyclic.

When I ran inverted mounted engines on my pattern planks, I used to have a filter attachment that slipped over the carb's venturi neck.

To prevent the engine from sucking up all the debri from the ground.

Perhaps that might help you, since you're flying over grass...

That's a fuel filter....I always use that...

I was speaking of an air intake filter....over the neck of the carb's venturi....
