K-
hate to tell you this but there is no standard setting for the best performance needle settings. everyones best settings will be a bit different. So my settings on my G20 may work great for me here in cen Tex but will suck for you up in NY cause of the difference in Temp and even altitude.

A little info on what you heli is set up with including fuel mix and anything that controls the throttle like a governor may help us help you.

If your getting great power during a full climbout then "seconds later" it bogs down on you, it may be related to the engine temp, just a guess though. this is why its better to tune an engine after its warmed up and running for a few minutes.

bottom line is it could be dozens of other reasons. I had that happen to me but the cause was air leaking into the fuel line (bubbles) due to vibration under heavy load (the air would lean the mix in splats and sputters..)it took me a month to track it down.

so more info on set up...
and take ALL CAPS off please...

K,
The problem I had was that when I did a full collective, (either up or down) the fuel line would shake enough that air would leak into the fuel line at the connections between the fuel line and any fuel fittings. I realized that the only way to fix this was my using small wire ties everywhere the fuel line connected to a fuel fitting (wire tie around the tube over the fitting) just like using hose clamps on a car. I also wire tied the fuel line to the frame of the Heli were possible. This may not be your issue on your Heli though...

I noticed this when the heli was on the ground at a high idle, I would see a bubble here and there traveling through the fuel line towards the carb. The more I wobbled the fuel line the more bubbles would seep into the line right where the connections were.

A bit of advice on the Gov. Read on here about the GV-1 setup procedure by rbort (Raja). its very informative.
Also its best to tune without the Gov first, then when your are happy with the needles, enable the Gov. The Gov should never be used to fix a out of tune problem...
