Default picco tick over problems!

i have had my losi 8ight with the picco p3 basic .21 engine since the summer last year and i have always had the problem. after a while, once it had warmed up i bring it in a take the temperature of the engine when after 10 seconds of idling the tick over suddenly gets lower. when i rive it after it has been stationary there is alot of blue smoke but clears after a while? is the low speed to rich? any help

right on the money.... its called loading up..

and the "tick" known as idle will drop after a while as fuel is not fully cleared out of the pipe.

once you get it cleared out its fine right? leave it alone!
