Yep, I'm one of those lucky guys who's wife put the trainer package under the tree. This is my first glow powered aircraft, though I've been flying gliders for a few years. I put it on the bench in the garage and it would not fire up. It would run for one second then quit. I fiddled with the screws, trim, and throttle and finaly got it to run at a fast idle. Any throttle change and it would quit. So I loosened the slow jet screw, gave it a few turns and it fired right up!
So now I can't stop it. With throttle closed it keeps running at a fast idle. Also, top RPM is reached at 3/4 throttle, any more and it slows. I think it is running way rich. How should I proceed? I live at a mile above sea level, that may be a clue to ya'll.
