Hi 1Coopgt,

I thing caught was the wrong word. I need to activate the break when I hit revere on the remote but it goes in the wrong direction.

Just need to know how to setup brakes properly for an FG.

Thank you!

Got it sorted. Had the throttle connector on facing upwards instead of downward. All set now.

Thank you Dougstar! Going out today to break in the engine.

Took it out today and did a tank idle break-in. Idles smoothly and quietly with the FG tuned pipe.

Also was able to drive around a little on second tank. Power band needs adjusting but all is good right now.

Thank you everyone for helping me get this going! I truely appreciate it!

Looking to break in some more this coming weekend. I did notice that after the engine was all warmed up, the speed was there. One questions though.

When I am first taking it out, I have to pull the throttle trigger all the way back. Once it moves, I can let go a little and then pull the trigger again for more power. Is that normal?

Thank you!
