I got a 26cc heli engine with a adjustable timming cover in her and the throttle is responsive anyway because of the way they are tuned, the bottle wont add any power ! but it just helps with smoother running! when you back off the throttle it sucks the excess fuel back in! Then when you power back on it pushes a double rich fuel mixture through!
