Re: O.S.55AX second deadstick

Glad to see she's working good for you now.

Hopefully you will have many uneventful flights from now on.

Re: O.S.55AX second deadstick

I know seems weird hey. I change the high speed 1/4 turn out and it changed the engine from unpredictable to running so smoothly I can even taxi the plane back in off the lake, sweet.

Re: O.S.55AX second deadstick

It could even have been a bit of foriegn matter on the needle and adjusting them may have loosened it up and allowed it to work its' way through..... it does happen from time to time!!

Re: O.S.55AX second deadstick

Good point Eganwp - I log my flights and have 398 on my OS 55ax with never a dead stick or any problems to speak of. I am not a tweaker but I do use 15% Omega. Still using original glow plug. May change it for next season though. Cheers. . .
