Default engine trouble

i have a mach .15 engine with about 1 gallon of fuel through it. the problem is that it stalls very often. once i get it up to runing temp it can idle for a whole tank but if i go real fast and then let it idle it will get slower and slower and then it will stall. i have also tried different types of fuel, glow plugs, and messed with the high and low end but it never seems to get beter. please help

thanks in advance

was it broken in properly? sounds like your piston/sleeve may be shot.

I have a mach .15. Mine does the same thing. It get slower and slower as you go along but mine doesn't stall. When it gets slower I just make the idle higher by adjust the throttle trim on the radio and tigtening the idle screw. That works for me. I thought it was just because I don't use this engine a lot because I use my fantom fr12. Also does that engine seem under powered to you? A lot of people say that but I don't think so.

i could not stand this engine, it didnt stay in "tune" for me. also if it gets too hot it will get a little slower. i think all nitro users should get a temp gun, it helps not to overheat the engine. what fuel are you using? if it will idle then you just need to fine tune it, if you are not sure, see if someone will help you out. later and good luck
