Not the spring on the throttle Doug I throw out the idle set screw and spring.

Oh OK ya pretty much everyone dumps them as soon as it comes out of the box. Many of the manufactures remove the screw and spring when they assemble the engines.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I used to do the nyrod thing, but found heat/cold affected expansion/shrinkage! Thus affecting throttle setting.

But now that I don't fly, strictly titanium c/w 425oz servo!

What Doug said, ensure its not pushing against either end stop!!!

Futaba S9351 for the throttle. I have used that servo in a few gassers and it is a well proven setup that works awesome!

Cheers,

Will

Super Suk has a Savox 1230 (500oz-in) on the throttle. Seems to be holding out.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Thank-you Doug.
That is what I did on the 3W-157 first cowl off in the spring.
