CALIBER 30 LACKING POWER
My Caliber 30 does NOT seem to have enough power to get off the ground. I have an IRVINE 39 heli engine in it and it is about 3 yrs old and used to fly very well before. I have leaned it, richened it, changed the plug, checked the belts, replaced the one-way bearing, replaced the fuel lines, exhust, fuel clunk, cleaned the carb and checked for leaks and still cannot figure out the problem. Does it sound like the engine on its way out? If so, how can i be sure?

The last time I flew it the engine was fluctuating, but I was still able to keep it hovering for 30 seconds or so before it started fluctuating.

Can someone help please.

I had a motor in a Schluter Champion many years ago act like that. The bottom bushing in the connecting rod was slowly disintegrating due to lack of oil in the fuel I was using at the time. If everything else was working OK last time you had the bird out, it might be time to dismantle the motor and give the innards a thorough inspection.

Is the clutch OK, and how does the motor sound when you're trying to lift off?

If your transmitter stores more than one aircraft setup -- are you using the correct selection, or has something changed in the curve setup?
