Posted on April 11, 2015 at 3:04pm 4 Comments

Hey all its me again Im tring to get the bugs worked out of this plane.   Does anybody know why my 912 rotax 80hp keeps running on for about 15 to 20 seconds after I turn the key off. My idol is around 1900 rpm at shut down but continues on at 350 rpm for a short time.  It just started doing this last week.  I sure could use some help.   Thanks again
