so my 5t refuses to start, back story is, it was xmas day and my brother just unwrapped his new 5b (priceless face) and we charged up the battery and got it ready for it's first run put the oil and fuel in to get it to fire, but no go... Brought mine out put the oil and fuel in and pulled it to fire and also that did not want to go....

Long story short we got my brothers going after putting some fuel down the plug hole and it kicked to life and ran perfectly, but still mine refused to fire even after a teaspoon of fuel straight down the hole...

I think my mistake was not premixing the fuel, my reason behind it was we bought a 10L jerry can filled it with fuel and of course HPI don't give you enough 2 stroke oil to mix with 10L and we didn't have anything smaller around so we could mix it.

What would be the best way to get rid of the fuel in the system? I have emptied the tank but there is still fuel in the line and primer bulb...
I've got some new 2 stroke oil ready to mix so once the system is flushed ill put in the premixed fuel this time and see what happens.

1st thing mate never mix that much as fuel goes off mix a 5L can.I mix mine in 1L bottles easy to mix and your sure oil will mix throughout.
I would put a new plug in also,if your running the pico it could be pico or setting's not making it fire just disconnect pico and check.

cut a slot in the head with a dremel then use a flat head screwdriver to remove - you can heat it up if you want to get the loctite to debond.  or hammer in a torx and undo it

ps: go get some bondhus allen keys with the red handles - they have a lifetime warranty 15248 HTX60M-6

I never use red Loctite.use it only on exhaust header that's it.
Am starting to use 3bond as bolts work loose from vibration the 3bond stops the vibration.
but do agree torx bolts are a better bolt head.

torx do the same thing , heat it and do the dremel grove so you can undo with blade screwdriver if all fails  drill head off take motor out or cover off and use mulitgrips to undo thread sticking out

replace the bolts with 12.9 grade so you have a better chance next time

So got the kill switch installed (resorted to drilling out the bolts will get new ones)
Got the wiring where I wanted it to go but now having trouble with actually getting the switch to recognise when the radio is on or lost (off)

I've tried different combination but with no luck .. Anyone have any ideas or solutions ..?

I'd be surprised if the kill switch works with a stock radio mate. Kent from killerrc couldn't get a kill switch to work with the stock radio, so I doubt a clone kill switch would be able to.

I could be wrong though.

i'd look at a radio upgrade mate, been heaps of futaba 4pk's floating around the forums for around the $250 mark. i'd steer clear of spektrum's, they are shit with large scale, but its all down to personal preference.

Spektrums have issues with gas engines from what I read, it's a lottery if you'll get one to work. I got one with my losi, it was shit, had a range of about 10m. It was useless.... So i put my futaba in it instead, no problems since
