Getting it running..make sure the plug is good, the igniter is charged...once you've bumped it a time or two it should prime, if the carb is seriously out of whack dial in the high and low ends all the way, then back them out about three turns a piece and that should get it running.
About the radio...if it's the digital setup, it may not be bonded, and if it's analog, the crystals may not be seated fully. Best bet there is find a local hobby shop and get some on the spot guidance....best of luck.
