what plug you using? with the higher humidity your most likly seeing there, you may need to move to a Hotter glow plug.
also what fuel/what percentage/ how old ect is it.

maybe hit up one of your rc buddys and try some of their fuel. maybe yours is bad. how was it stored? cool dry dark place wiht cap on TIGHT?

if your fuel is good< try to run in another motor and if it tunes runs well then...) maybe toss in a OS 8. i find if the 59s are giving me fits in a motor, the 8s usually do better and visa versa.

Get yourself some carby sealant and tear down the carby and reseal EVERYTHING with sealant, i know the motor is newish but still 9 times out of 10 tuning problems lead back to leaking carby`s that causes inconsistancy and constant retuning. Give this a go either way, can never hurt to have a properly sealed carby.
