Engine overheating cure

Engine overheating cure


  • Engine overheating
  • Loss of power even if the motor smoke a lot

Why? it really depends…

  • Where You are living….in the desert? do not forget that some gyro may have trouble too and may drift a lot if the day is too warm (more than 35°C). In altitude, less oxygen -> more nitro
  • The percentage of nitro/oil the more oil/nitro the cooler the engine will run -> Attention here in europe, nitromethan can cost an arm and and leg -> 30euro/liter !!! at 15%nitro. I personaly usually fly with 1% nitro! enough for learning.
  • You engine is not correctly tuned, ask a better pilot to help You set the engine. Your engine MUST smoke
  • If nothing of the above aply, You may want to try the mods below


  • Change the cooling FAN for a QuickUk
  • Change the cooling FAN for a Correct upgrade.
