Anybody keep extra YS check valves handy?
Just wondering if the check valves for YS engines are prone to any failure. I don't have an extra one but wondering if I should.

I have a spare now.
Mine stuck shut after less than two gallons of fuel.

It was easy to fix though...I took it apart and removed the diaphragm and cleaned it.
It now works like the new one and is in a drawer in case I need it in a pinch.
I literally never use the word literally right.

My whole heli was stuck as a matter of fact.lol...

I think it's from being stored in the garage at freezing temps with fuel in it.

Not to sway from the main topic, but I didn't think nitro would freeze with the amount of oil and alcohol in it. Does it indeed freeze?Team HeliProz - Retired
