Bergen Intrepid gasser engine died during flip
I have been scratching my head on this one.
I started the heli. brought it up in a hover, flipped to idle up did a climb out all was great. went to a forward flip and the engine died????
I finished the flip of power and damaged a couple parts on impact.
Anyone have a idea as to why it did this?
It has a g26, black box pipe, GV-1 with stator gator.
I did the Malorie throttle linkage setup.
It has ran great for many flights but this time it did this.
I am getting scared to fly it because of this. and not knowing why it happened.
the fuel line on tank is good. clunk was still attached, engine seems to be tuned good but I am not a gas engine master.
any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated.
after I get parts and get it ready to fly again I am going to disable governor and try it on curves to see if it does it.
Thanks in advance for your help
Jason

Are you sure you have the throttle curve set up correctly ?? Please look at it on your transmitter and post the numbers...Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I will look but it has worked fine before. It seemed to choke a couple times in the past but only in the beginning of the flight. this time it completely died.
