Default engine problem

About 2 hours of use rex p5 with odonnel glow plug 30% nitro tends to not work good. it stalls out when giving it gas, is this because I need to let it cool down the temp is only about 210 or should i change plugs and how long do glowplugs last? This weekend i put a new one in and it did the same thing. Does any one have any ideas?

Could be tuned bad or plug is not right range. If too lean the motor will like turn off then back on or seem like maybe it's glitching. If too rich you are able to hear the rpm the whole time just it's tripping over itself and bluburly sounding. If you experience any of those when up to speed then your main needle needs work, if it's happening from a stop then bottom needle needs more attention that the top.

I'll take it apart this week and start over What confuses me is thet it runs great for about two hours then starts to die everytime throttle is applied. the glow plug is right range #9 I'll try playing with my low end needle. I cant fiure it out. Some one at the trake said to change plugs (meaning to put a new one in)it will run at slow rpm but when I hit it it stalls, only after about 6 tanks of gas when this problem start to occur.
